This event is a fundraiser for So. County no-kill shelters and rescues, and starts with a Dog Walk at 8-9am.

I’m jealous, the library is getting new carpeting. The planned closure forced me to try their book download service. It was easy, but had to download some free software first. Not only can you download books for reading on the computer, but other compatible devices, i.e. smart phone, PDA, iPad, iPod, more. There’s a collection of audio books available as well.
This service works for PC’s as well as Mac’s, can ‘check-out’ up to five items at a time, and choose whether you want a one or two week check-out time. It’s pretty cool, and something I’ll use even after the library re-opens because I’m all about convenience.

So, so sad…..1) because of the depth of his hopelessness to choose to do this; 2) he wanted to go out making a difference, leaving a note requesting his organs be donated; and 3) by the time his body was found on a driveway, it was too late to use any of his organs.
I didn’t realize that the types of death allowing for organ recovery are rare, according to Bryan Stewart, a spokesman for OneLegacy, which handles organ donations for more than 200 Southern California hospitals. Mr. Stewart says the donor has to be brain dead but still have a functioning heart or be on a ventilator. Once a person’s heart stops, other organs become oxygen-starved and rapidly deteriorate.
The 48-year-old man, identified as Charles Kildruff from Las Vegas, shot himself on a hospital driveway. He was declared dead after being rushed to the emergency room.
In case they can be received, which I believe they can, I’m sending thoughts of love to Mr. Kildruff.
