And now… a word from our sponsor

Hi. My name is Rob. I live at the beach. I consider myself very fortunate to dwell is such a picturesque local, and have spent my life with my toes in the water as much as possible.

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. With the impending threat to my coastline looming in the south, I feel I have been drawn to help in every way possible. But I am not going to tell you all something you already know, I have some rather good news during a rather bleak time for our ocean.

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.

If everyone who reads this blog could take a moment and click on the image below and vote for us, I am sure we could get, like three more votes!!

It would mean a lot to me and to a cause I care very deeply about if you could do so. To see a little video about what we do, which involves a 61-foot fin whale which recently beached on our shores, you can view it here:


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

  1. Great job you and that organization is doing. And here I thought you were
    neglecting this website for silly stuff like jobs and money. but this is some really
    worthy and helpful work MERR is doing.

    And congratulations for Ms. Thurman getting nominated. Getting the endorsements
    of Harrison Ford, James Cameron, and Sam Waterston is really something. On the
    other hand, there’s Ted Danson, so I don’t know….

    Best of luck.

  2. I too voted for the smart hot chick 😉 even though the bald dude was just as qualified and looked like this was his last shot up for the award but then I became scared of what Ted Danson’s forehead is capable of when it feels wronged.
