KUDOS to PAM ANDERSON!
Pamela Anderson went to New Orleans to walk and give treats to the dogs PETA is transporting from crowded animal shelters in oil-ravaged Louisiana to Virginia for adoption.

This post is dedicated to you Ivy Bean
Ivy Bean was an avid Twitter user. She was also 104 years old. You may or many not remember that a while back I posted about this inspirational person. I know I was a Twitter follower of hers and I encouraged my readers to sign on as well.
Ivy Bean was Twitter’s oldest user and had more than 56,000 followers.
Ivy passed away last week.
Bean’s last tweet was July 6. It read, “going to have my lunch now will be back later.”
Last the week her caregiver posted this for Ivy’s fans ”
“Ivy passed away at 12.08 this morning.” The tweet was followed immediately by: “I’m sorry it took me so long to tell you but it was a very difficult thing to do.”
