Big charity ride is tomorrow. Last chance to donate.
I'll be riding 50 miles on my bike tomorrow as part of a fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society. If you want to donate, it's fast and easy through the link on my sig line.

Interesting sidenote: I told someone who I correspond with on a cycling board that I was doing this ride and he thanked me. He had just beat his cancer 18 months ago and was grateful that people work so hard to fund this organization. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

I've already had a couple of DUers pitch in and collected donations at work as well. I would appreciate the support. Thanks!

4. Weather forescast is excellent!
Clear skies and sunshine all day, but a little on the chilly side with temps not expected to climb out of the 60s. Sure beats the heat, though. This time of year, layers are my friend. :-)

Thanks for the good wishes and I'll let you know how it went. :hi:

7. Thank VERY much!
None of us can do much on our own, but together we can help make a dent. I appreciate it.

3. Done
My Aunt beat Cancer 20 years ago, but she still checks in at Duke University every month.

Her Dad and my Father weren't so lucky....
