Afghan spectators watch a dog fight in Kabul in 2009. Outlawed under Taliban rule and now legal and very popular in Afghanistan, each Friday from November to March thousands of Afghans gather on the western outskirts of Kabul to watch the spectacle of dog fighting. A remote-control bomb exploded at a dog fight in southern Afghanistan on Friday, killing and wounding up to 20 people, police said.

I say GOOD!

I came to a sad realization tonight. I can barely remember the two most important people in my life.

Tomorrow is the 5th year anniversary of my grandmother’s death – my grandfather had passed a number of years before – and I find myself unable to remember their voices, laughs, or anything really unless it’s in little flashes of a memory.

This really hurts because I want to remember them, but I worry that in a few more years I wont be able to recall anything… and these people raised me, took care of me, gave me everything I ever needed or wanted – they made me who I am… and I can barely remember their faces unless I look at pictures.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The Discovery Channel says the captain of the “Deadliest Catch” fishing vessel Cornelia Marie has died.

Capt. Phil Harris suffered what his family described as a massive stroke on Jan. 29 while the boat was in port at St. Paul Island, Alaska. The 53-year-old fisherman was flown to Anchorage for surgery.

A Discovery spokesman says the Harris family contacted the network Tuesday evening with word of his death.

Discovery Channel spokeswoman Elizabeth Hillman issued a statement on behalf of sons Jake and Josh Harris. It says in part, “It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our dad — Captain Phil Harris. Dad has always been a fighter and continued to be until the end.”

In the network’s own statement, Hillman says, “We will miss his straightforward honesty, wicked sense of humor and enormous heart.”

There are no words to express how sad this news makes me. 😦
