Today was a sad day in Hollywood. My late grandmother Elizabeth Cruickshank‘s (Lil’s) favorite Hollywood actress, Elizabeth Taylor, passed away aged 79. She died of congestive heart failure. The full statement of this fine ambassador of humanitarian arts and culture was read by her son Michael Wilding Jr. It reads as follows via US Magazine:
The two-time Oscar winner and humanitarian “was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor and love. Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world. Her remarkable body of work in film, her ongoing success as a businesswoman and her brave and relentless advocacy in the fight against HIV/AIDS all make us all incredibly proud of what she accomplished. We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts.”
What a nice way to remember one’s mother. Elizabeth Taylor was a Hollywood Queen. In Hollywood entertainment news you voted today, here’s our top ten on Horiwood.Com. Thanks people.

UNLOCK CLEAN ENERGY SAY THE AUSSIES
This pic shows a rising sentiment for clean energy, as expressed by Australia.
I can’t remember where I sourced the pic from, I guess I’m doing an Arianna Huffington on this one, and posting it without a credit. Oops. I almost feel a little bit like a New Yorker media person just now in doing so. :)
A powerful message for the planet. UNLOCK GREEN ENERGY! The rest is all BS.
Believe it or not, these people holding these placards are some of the wisest and fairest people on the planet in this moment. They have an important view.
