If it wasn’t for Jimmy Reed being born on this day, August 29th, in 1925, Rock-n-Roll may have not ending up having such a durable and long running life.To name just a handful of people his tunes meant something to there’s Link Wray bad ass version of a song Reed first made famous, “Ain’t That Lovin’ You, Baby”, Elvis getting some “cool credibility” back during his 60’s movie star phase with a take on “Big Boss Man" in ‘67 (and, along with another Reed tune, "Baby, What You Want Me To Do" being highlights of the ‘68 Comeback TV special), The Yardbirds doing "Ain’t Got You" as the b-side to their second single, and, of course, the Rolling Stones who took his song "Shame, Shame, Shame" and turned it into "Little By Little" as the b-side of the ‘64 single of their cover of Buddy Holly’s "Not Fade Away" along with their version of "Honest I Do" that appeared on their debut album.After a long time bout with alcoholism and epilepsy (which went undiagnosed for a years because his doctors just assumed he was having  delirium tremens) Jimmy Reed died of respiratory failure in 1976, eight days shy of his 51st birthday. 

Jimmy Reed was one of the main Blues artists my dad played for me as a kid and his sound and influence have left an unalterable impact on me

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

It’s always astonishing when I stumble on something that’s just…*good*. This is a simple, absolute good. I love this. Let’s all pray for Lillian Weber.

I concur.

"A few years ago, I got a call on my cell phone from a twelve year old child from my village. He was calling me from a bus stop. He’d taken a bus into the city alone, and he was calling me to ask if I could help him find a way to go to school. Both of his parents had died of AIDS, and he had no money for tuition. I told him to stay where he was, and left work immediately to pick him up. At first I was very mad at him. He should not have travelled alone. But then I looked at him and I saw myself. I’d also been desperate to go to school after my father was killed, but we had no money. So even though I was suffering myself, I told him I would try to help him. My salary was not enough, so I tried many things to get the money. After work, I went to the landfill to hunt for recyclables. But after I paid to have them cleaned, there was no money left. Now I’m trying to make bricks. I have a small operation in the village to make bricks, and I sell them in the city. It doesn’t make much money, but it’s enough to pay tuition for the boy and three of his siblings.” (Kampala, Uganda)
