Doing Something to Make a Difference

Walk for Hope. People getting together to walk, raise money for research, raise awareness, promote mammograms. I was one of over one thousand participants (some were breast cancer survivors) who walked four miles in 90-something degree heat. The police and ems were there to help those who needed it and keep us safe. The fire department sprayed us with water for a cool-down at the halfway point. Various sponsors were there with cold drinks and yummies. (Thank you!) It was very exciting to be a part of something that big. Many thanks to the special people (you know who you are) who sponsored me.

Agent M and Grandma Sheila cheered us on at the one-mile mark. I walked for Jill and Rosie, who survived. I thought about Lucille and Kim Yale, who didn’t.

Special thanks from me to Banana Boat. This product has performed beyond my expectations. They’re not kidding, waterproof, sweatproof, kidproof, mommyproof. Great stuff.

May Day!

This letter appeared in one of the weekly papers here and I’ve been laughing so hard so distracted by it, I’ve been unable to accomplish anything else:

Take the ‘sex’ out of ‘Middlesex County’

I would like to urge lawmakers, senators and other politicians if they can think about changing the name of Middlesex County to “Middle County” instead of keeping it as Middlesex. The word “sex” in the current name looks weird and does not look appropriate in our society.

Someone actually wrote that.

The county of which this individual speaks takes its name from the original Middlesex in England. I don’t wish to live in “Middle” county. If he’s offended by the name, he can MOVE elsewhere. Perhaps Intercourse, PA.

Not Middlesex, Actually Union

As Seen in Suburban New Jersey

On a traffic signal post (amid all the other signs of the times). Nowhere near the Los Angeles International Airport and pointing east, instead of west. Very odd.


Answer to the Question of the Week

Q: Do you guys WALK everywhere?

A: We try to.

It seems silly to use the car to walk to school because we frequently walk into town and that’s further. Unless, of course, the weather is particularly unforgiving. That’s only happened 3 times (since September).

We’re lucky to live in a central location, where it is possible to walk to the train, shopping, school. Plus, I’d like to think that with what we save on gas, we could get some pizzas.
