Some rather belated signal-boosting

So my friend kshandra and her husband gridlore want to go on holiday for their 25th wedding anniversary. But it's going to be difficult because Doug has worst health than me. I mean, seriously, the poor guy has had cancer twice (plus another malignant growth that was small enough to be removed by a dermatologist) and has suffered horrible side-effects from the anti-cancer drugs which saved his life. Like his jawbone started rotting away and his teeth fell out so he couldn't eat, and then he got a potassium deficiency and almost died, and he has no spleen so he can't fight infection... And it really says something when you're talking about your friend's husband's bad health to your other friends, and the list of problems is so long that you actually forgot that he'd had a stroke.

Anyway, they are great people, if perpetually short of money, and they deserve the chance to have something fun happen to them for once. So they want to go to Istanbul. It won't be cheap - the travel insurance alone will be a small fortune - but they have friends and friends of friends who can help. Even US $5 will help. If you're able to give then here's the link, if you can't then would you consider boosting the signal? I've known Kirsten for something like 13 or 14 years, I can personally vouch for the situation being genuine.

Also, some of my friends have written a book. Purple Prose is all about Bisexuality in Britain. I'm sure a lot of it will be relevant to bisexuals outside of Britain, too. It's only £5 for an e-book or £15 for an e-book and paperback, so please buy one if you can! The closing date for the funding is 11th November.
