Half way there

I just came in from a chilly and windy ride and I am happy to report that I went over the 2500 mile mark on the bicycle today. Half way to the goal that I set of 5000 miles for the year. It feels good to be over 700 miles ahead of schedule and with any luck I will end the year with a total mileage in excess of 6000. It should be an interesting summer!

5 gallons!

I attended my 40th Red Cross blood drive today and I am happy to announce that I officially got my 5 gallon donor pin! I looked at a five gallon gas can today and it is still hard to picture that much blood. I am glad to do it though and i am glad to help some anonymous person in need. If you want to help somebody in need, look around for your local Red Cross blood drive and then roll up your sleeve and give, please!
