Dearest Readers:

One of my fellow bloggers, Phampants, has spent days weeks collaborating with his friend Karen as the Chicago duo attempt to become Ford Fiesta agents. Not sure what that is? I wasn’t completely certain either, but the two put together this video to explain why they should be chosen by the automobile-maker:

Not only would I greatly appreciate it if you checked out the above video – it is only five minutes, and hey, you can eat a burrito (first thing that came to mind, I swear it!) at the same time, but Pham would be quite appreciative as well. Thanks all!

37 years.

I had intended on writing this blog post nearly ten days ago, but the thought kept escaping my brain just as I’d wander over to the Internet. But, better late than never…

Jan. 22 of this year marked the 37th anniversary of one of the most controversial court decisions in our nation’s history: Roe v. Wade.

It was on that day in 1973 that abortions became legal throughout this country, dismissing any previously held state or federal regulations regarding the procedure. And that specific court-case determination has ruled abortion policies for nearly four decades.

…37 years, and yet some people seriously believe that this “fundamental right” will become overturned some day? I find that baffling.

As an individual who very strongly supports a woman’s right to choose, I simply wanted to make note of this anniversary.

Today, the blogging community came together with monetary contributions and a fabulous video to help one of our own, Brandy, whose boyfriend (Hot Awesome Dude, or H.A.D.) was recently diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, an incurable form of cancer.

In her boyfriend’s name, Brandy is raising cash money toward the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, and the blogosphere hopes you can lend a helping hand. For the whole story, go here. And major kudos to all those bloggers who stepped up today in a HUGE way.
