Towards the bottom of this article is a link from Gay RVA in Richmond, Virginia, highlighting the inaugural recipient of a scholarship given by our chapter, Central Virginia, to a deserving student that is a participant in an organization called Side-by-Side. The organization helps youth that are questioning their sexuality and, accordingly, awards deserving youth the opportunity to higher education.

We have over 470 registrations and keep getting them on a weekly basis. The convention is being held at the beautiful Luxor Hotel & Casino on the Strip in Las Vegas. The registration fee is $220 from now to September 9, 2015. After that, the registration fee will be $240 at the door. The registration fee includes daily seminars and workshops, one buffet lunch, one dinner buffet, entertainment night (Let's Make a Deal), a polo shirt, and more gifts in the welcome bags. We have a few surprises. We will have our open bar in the hospitality suite with plenty of snacks.

When we are blessed with a long life, it has mixed blessings. On the positive side, we are able to witness and experience the technological changes that make life more informative and tasks easier to accomplish. However, with age also comes decreased vision and/or hearing loss that make that technology more difficult to use. The coming of the computer adds challenges to learn a new method of communicating and a new vocabulary. There is also an additional personal challenge as physical changes make it difficult to climb those mountains, travel to distant places, and other things we did when we were young.

I am such a congenital worrier that I worry that I am overlooking something when I can’t find anything to worry about. Has is gotten worse with “maturity?” Probably. Do I worry about that? I don’t think so. Should I? Probably.


Am I going to heaven or hell? I don’t know. I don’t go to church. I do sin of the flesh as defined by some denominations. But I live right (at least by my standards – but even those standards may be disputable by some people). I guess I am still looking for some scientific proof that heaven and hell exist. Do I worry about which one I’m going to? No. Should I? I don’t know.
