This is a link to the Life Rolls On Foundation and the myspace page. LRO is a foundation that helps people who have suffered from a spinal cord injury.. car accident, surfing accident, motorcycle, etc.. and it helps motivate them through surfing, raising awareness and supporting spinal cord research. Living in Florida, I am very proud to be a part of this group and I hope that you all will find it to be a very helpful and unique organization.
Hey, I always wondered what would someone who knows a lot about autism (cause I won't even pretend I do) and has a direct contact with it in everyday life think of the book "A curious incident of the dog in the night". Maybe it's a stupid question but I absolutely loved the book and it made me think a lot about the state of mind of that kid. I was also wondering how realistic/accurate it was concerning autism but I guess it depends pretty much on the form of autism too?

Ive been wanting to do more for homeless animals, especially cats. I have three cats of my own and have no more room in my house but more love to give. Ive been trying to find local organizations on line but nobody has responded to my emails...I think the pages were out of date. So I went to petsmart today because on Saturdays they always have local animal resuce groups there doing adoptions!
I was so nervous to approach anyone....I have this HUGE fear of rejection. I found the people who handle the cats and they were so NICE! I filled out my application and they told me I can come next Saturday to learn the ropes!
I have a 2 1/2 year old with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome with Transposition. He had one open heart surgery at 9 months old with at least one more to come. He recv's his care at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis---- (rileychildresnshospital.com) Also, another great foundation is the Ronald McDonald House which helps families while their children are recv'ing care (such as food, a place to sleep, etc.). Both of these places function largely by donations and goodwill. I have always given when possible (even before my sone was born) I've learned that giving is great as you never know when you may need to be on the recv'ing end. God Bless you all.
The Ronald McDonald house is a great place. My wife and I stayed there during my daughter's heart surgery. The Childrens' Miracle Network is also does a great job. When you are spending days and weeks at a time in a hospital with a sick child, they help the family to be as comfortable as possible.
patzeller: ive seen the band in MN in 2015, Denver (home) in 2016 and last night in Chicago. Despite Brad missing, the bands chemisty was the best I’ve ever seen. Awesome awesome show. Guess I’ll be heading to Edmonton in June!

jaakko: Hi there! I´m new here! Straight to the question... Is there any possibilities that Blin Melon would tour somewhere in europe someday? I need to see and hear my all time favourite band live before I die. Do I need to fly to U.S.A?

crobar: Anyone know who played the harmonica lead in the song "change" at woodstock '94?

crobar: If you watch the video on youtube for "Change" at woodstock '94, a dude is welcomed out on stage to play the lead harp. Shannon thanks him but you can't hear the name. The guy killed it and I'd like to know who he is/was. Any help is appreciated.

lisa: Blind melon take me back to a really happy time of leaving school and having the world at my feet. I am about to watch the doc. I am looking forward to seeing what the band thought of history being made and the creation of timeless music. RIP Shannon
