Good Morning
Five chartered buses will leave Asheville, {North Carolina} tonight, bound for the nation's capital. Even as sailors ship out, protesters are packing Washington-bound buses and organizing local marches and vigils from Tampa, FL, to San Francisco. A national peace rally planned for Saturday near the Capitol is expected to draw thousands who oppose war in Iraq. "We have all kinds of regular people going," said Jim Brown of the WNC Peace Coalition. "They're all saying the same thing. They don't understand the double standard of going to war with Iraq, but not with North Korea, or with those countries where the 9-11 terrorists came from." Live satellite feed for Jan 18 demonstration can be found here. More DC rally info here.

From The Rolling Stones Dept
A woman shows up at the arena for the Stones show Sunday night. She's carrying a Baggie. Turns out that in the Baggie is not what you usually bring to a Stones concert in a Baggie. It's the remains of her late hubby. A HUGE Stones fan. There's more... Also, the Stones' HBO concert special premieres Saturday at 9 p.m. EST.

*Dylan has a new song being premeired on AOL today. "Cross The Green Mountain", from the upcoming movie, "Gods and Generals". The soundtrack is due Feb 4, while the film hits theaters Feb 21. You can pre-order on Amazon. Or someone's surely got it by now if you check KaZaA, or the other music downloads.

Snow Day! For kids in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia; who else? The local tv weatherman just reminded us that it's going to be another 3-dog night tonight.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
