November 2, 2012

Hello everyone!!  It has been a while since I have been able to sit down to write.  As you know my time is limited and I have been busy prepping for jobs, making lots of food, doing lots of laundry and wiping lots of hineys.  We just had the Superstorm Sandy pass through and I am hoping it is finding all of you safe and warm.  We lost power for 26 hours and I know that there are still a ton of people without power.  It is so sad to see and hear of the damage from this storm.  I am hoping to give some blood soon and to donate to some places that need it.  (Places that need clothes, furniture, and toys for children, etc.)  While thinking about what I can do to contribute to help with storm relief, I was thinking about the month of November…..

There are a lot of organizations in this world that need support and funding.  Are you involved in any of them?  Here’s one that you can participate in that will make a big difference.  This is PJ’s story.

It doesn’t even seem realistic to someone who has lived a normal life & been extremely healthy throughout it. When you look at the statistics, PJ Aldridge should not be here with us still. Who is PJ you ask? PJ is a giving, sincere, genuine, loving, humble, admired, friend who acts as a breath of fresh air to anyone he is around. Read more →
