One side project is serving on the board of directors of MERR, which stands for the Marine Education, Research and Rehabilitation Institute (but it’s a lot of cooler to say MERR). We are the first respondents to any marine life that comes to our shorelines — dolphin, whales, sea turtles, seals.
I know I have been MIA for quite a while here, but it is with good reason, as I hope to explain below.

Our organization’s executive director, Suzanne Thurman, has been nominated for a prestigious international award from Oceana and we could not be happier. Their list of endorsers, to tie it in with a movie blog, include Harrison Ford, Ted Danson, Sam Waterston, and some guy called James Cameron, among many, many others.

Thanks again. I promise to soon return to our regularly scheduled ramblings…
