Okay, first off to the Editors, if this is against the Sploofus board rules then for the love of god delete it. Don't let it become a three ring circus. I do not want any drama started up over this post. I would rather it just be deleted than be allowed to turn into some three ring circus show.

Now, I'm participating in a MS walk this coming weekend for a friend of mine who was diagnosed with MS 2 years ago. Of course the National MS Society wants donations and such, so I thought I would post the links here for anyone that feels so inclined to make a donation. Even if it is only $0.10 it would be greatly appreciated. Anyway here are the links.

Make a Donation to my team efforts-

Come join me on the walk (if you are going to be in the Huntington, WV neighborhood on April 20th. The teams name is Alicia's Angels-

Make a General Donation-

I'm in, sorry it couldn't be more, but hubby has been out of work since December. So you're not Ms Evil after all

My daughter-in-law has MS. Has had for probably 8 to 10 years. Thank goodness for the progress that has been made in medicine. By taking daily shots, she has been able to maintain steady for the most part and you would not know she had an illness to look at her. But even with the shots, it's not a piece of cake. They are painful and after time you run out of places to put the shots. A cure or immunization would be so much better and hopefully that will come sooner rather than later.

Good luck on your walk. We're having one here in North Platte, too.

Great job Smeans. I started to post the link for mine when I was being arrested for MD -- but thought it would be against the rules - did have a few people write and ask me for the link though - I came up a bit short of my goal - but online is awesome!

Good luck!
Tomorrow night me & my kids are doing Relay for Life here at the high school.

I see you walk is today (Sunday the 20th). Please let us know how you did and the total raised.

In the walk in North Platte yesterday (Saturday) there were 80 walkers and they made over $7,000. This is the 8th year for the walk.

After I get some sleep I'll send you one of the stories I did on a family participating in the walk.

The walk was a huge success. It was suppose to rain today and it clouded up and looked like it would pour on us at any minute but it never did. The walk went well, we had panned on walking the mile circuit because Alicia didn't know if she could do the 4 mile one with her asthma or not. However we missed the turn for the 1 mile circuit and ended up walking almost the entire 4 mile circuit. We turned around about a block before the turn around point because Jaimie, one of the walkers who is a little over 5 months pregnant, really needed to get back to the bathroom. LOL It was fun and we all had a blast.

There ended up being 27 teams and about 250 walkers show up. The fund raising goal for the walk was $12,000. I am pleased to say we rocketed past that goal and raised a little over $25,000. Our team had a goal of raising $250 and the grand total for our team was $1,278.50 which is way more than any of us had ever dreamed of achieving.

Thank you once again to all of you that donated. Your donations are greatly appreciated.
