Have you ever gone to the Forever Hollywood Cemetery in Hollywood, CA for movie night? If not, I suggest you check it out!  I had the BEST TIME EVER! After participating in Puppy Mill Awareness Day, my Vegan friends and I went to see the black and white movie classic, "Night Of The Living Dead."

We arrived around 4pm, picnicking on the grass while we waited in line. They opened around 630pm and my friends Ryan and Donovan sprinted all the way to the other side of the cemetery to get seats upfront. I have never seen 2 men sprint so fast in my life. They were so fast I couldn't even get my video camera out in time to film them!

We spread out about 6 blankets for every one and had a blast! We took professional photos at the cemetery, courtesy of Forever Hollywood Cemetery and eventually, like grade school children, had a food fight during the film. Sitting on the blanket next to us, unbeknownst to me at the time, were Mike Love from the Beach Boys and John Stamos.  John came over after filming near by to meet Mike. 

Waiting in line to get in with my two best girls Melissa and Alicia.

At the end of the night John had peanuts, fruit and bits of watermelon to pick off of his blanket and himself. It was pretty funny and he is obviously a good sport. I did not recognize Mike Love when my friend Ryan introduced me and according to Ryan, I was "crawling all over the blanket and Mike" several times through out the evening :( Oh boy. Now THAT is an introduction!

Good sport John Stamos

If I could change one or two things about the evening, it would be #1.....that I didn't hit Ryan in the nose with a HUGE banana, and Kerry in the nose with a box of crackers and #2.....that the night were longer!  Hey Hollywood Cemetery......how about a double feature next time?

Serita and Ryan talk to the legend, Mike Love from The Beach Boys.

Donovan and Melissa, right before dvouring Clara's Cupcakes.......Vegan made and delicious!

Jane Goodall’s Day Of Peace Promotes Worldwide Unity Day - Diversity News Magazine September 2010

By JR, Special for Diversity News

Thousands showed up at the Santa Monica Pier on Sunday September 19, 2010, from 11:00 am -4:00 pm to celebrate the 7th annual Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots Day of Peace.

The event was a tremendous success with well over 10,000 people attending the event which ran from 11am-4pm. Roots & Shoots groups from all over the state, as well as local students, tourists and others participated in the festivities.

For the 7th year in a row, the United Nations International Day of Peace, Roots & Shoots members and friends come together to promote peace. All over the world, young people craft Giant Peace Dove Puppets from reused materials and fly the Doves in parades in their communities. From the Pier in Santa Monica, to China, to the mountain tops of the Colorado Rockies, Peace Doves fly with hands of peace holding them up in the wind.

A symbol of international peace and solidarity, the Day of Peace festival on Santa Monica Pier closed with a Giant Peace Dove Parade. Celebrities, Roots & Shoots members, and event-goers joined together to fly a collection of seventy five hand-made giant doves along the Santa Monica Pier parade route, each with a wing span of 25 feet. Marilu Henner hosted the festival and led the peace parade. Simultaneously, Peace Doves flew in cities all across the United States and almost 100 countries worldwide.

“With the peace doves we remind everyone of the truth they sometimes forget – that peace is possible. With Day of Peace, we celebrate all that is free and noble in the human spirit. And we celebrate all that so many people have done throughout the year and will do next year to create a better world.” Said Jane Goodall, PhD, UN Messenger of Peace, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute.
