What if there was a fast, easy, painless way to save a life that was completely free. Would you do it?
If your answer is yes, then you should sign up for the National Marrow Donor Program. Visit Be The Match to find out how. 
Can’t even get off the couch to go visit a donor center? That’s cool. BeTheMatch will mail you a kit like the one above. Swab your cheeks four times, stuff the Q-tips back into the envelope, and send it back. Nothing easier than that.
It is a long shot that you will ever turn up a match for someone searching the registry. But that 60 seconds you just spent swabbing your cheeks may turn out to be the difference between someone living and dying.

Tudor Cottage in Tompkinsville (by thelexiphane) This interesting Tudor-style cottage sits between St. Paul’s Avenue and Victory Blvd on Staten Island. This would be a straight half-timbered Tudor revival-style, if not for the curvilinear gables with rounded overhanging eaves, which are a modern adaptation of a thatched roof in an old English cottage. The irregular blocking around the main doorway also adds to the rustic ambiance. Note that the builder did not skimp when matching the design to the freestanding garage at the rear of the house, although the garage door looks out of sync. There are other period-style homes along this stretch where this house sits, although the styles seem to lean more Scandinavian than anything else.
