7-7-07: This is supposedly the luckiest day of the millennium. I guess I should go buy a lottery ticket. Couldn't hurt...right?
I'm watching some of the Live Earth coverage on Bravo, which is showing highlights, and Sundance Channel, which is covering all 22 hours live. How exhausting. Tonight will be the big recap show on NBC where they show Madonna, The Police, Beastie Boys, et al. The concerts are a great way to raise awareness about global warming. Do any of you "live green?" I've started recycling all my plastics, newspapers and magazines. I also try to conserve electricity and water usage at my place, not only for the environment but for my wallet. I would love to be able to get rid of my car, but Atlanta is not public transportation friendly. When I finally get to London, I'll will happily give up my car. I hate driving.
This is also the second anniversary of the July 7 suicide bombings in London that killed 52 people on the Underground and a packed bus. Blog reader Bob Farrell emailed me yesterday after reading my post from last year and asked if I would post the link to his flickr site, where he is creating an online tribute to those who died that day, including his cousin Jonathan Downey who was at Edgware Road tube station. It's my pleasure, Bob. Take a moment to visit the site and see the beautiful photos folks have sent in.
