Prompted by a visit to the site in August, my friend and softball compatriot BBM has pledged to donate her blog’s ad revenues from September to the fund that will help pay for a permanent memorial in Shanksville, where Flight 93 came down on 9/11. Her ad money is determined by page views, so she’s encouraged everyone to spend just a little extra time on her site this month.
Monday night, she decided she wanted to end the month with a bang, so she solicited donations from her sizable posse; those donations will be awarded via a random drawing by her two-year-old, with names taken from those who leave comments on this post.
Yes. Uncle Crappy got in on the donations. I’m kicking in copies of two historic concerts at Pittsburgh’s Stanley Theater (or the Stan ‘n Guy Theater, where Everyone Loves The Show) which was resurrected in the early 1990s as the Benedum Center. First, you’ll get a nice, clean copy of the Dead’s show there on Dec. 1, 1979, a show cherished by freaks like me for the spontaneous “Gloria” jam during the second set. You’ll also get a nice copy of Bob Marley’s show there on Sept. 23, 1980 — what turned out to be Marley’s last concert before he died the following spring.
There’s plenty of other stuff over there too — and all you have to do is leave a comment. And even if you don’t want to do that, take a minute and look around — BBM is hysterical, and there’s funny in nearly every post. The Wife and I especially liked this one, which BBM wrote just after we spent a couple weekends with our headstrong niece, who likes dresses that twirl above all else; this one is another favorite of mine, for obvious reasons.
So. Go. Take a look. Enter the contest if you see something interesting. Either way, you’ll help BBM pump up the money she has to donate to the memorial fund.
