Comedy Night Fundraiser! and more Death Ride training

Ok, so I'm still not so great at keeping this blog updated......I'm already doing better than last year!

Comedy Night Fundraiser!

This Sunday, March 13, I will be hosting a comedy night fundraiser at Bunjo's Comedy Lounge in Dublin.  This year we will have a professional magician/comedian, Timothy James, as the headliner along with John DeKoven and other great comedians.  This is always a fun night - and all proceeds will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Tickets are $20 at the door, or by donation to my fundraising website.  Bunjo's is at 6513 Regional St in Dublin (in The Willow Tree Restaurant).  I hope to see you there!

Training Update:

What can I say - we're training for the Death Ride!  Our distances are getting longer - we're consistently riding 50 - 60 miles, with lots of climbing.  The last few rides have had 100 feet/mile of climbing - usually an indicator of a hard, mountainous ride.  I had to miss the last team ride - I was actually there, but I had the kids with me.  Their mom had gone out of town on business so the bike ride had to play 2nd fiddle for the day.  It's a shame, because it's one of my favorite East Bay rides - doing lots of the great climbs through the Oakland hills.  However, it's a long season and missing a ride or two is not a disaster.

Fund-raising update:

My fund-raising this year got off to a very strong start.  I'm only about 1/3rd of the way through my address book and we've already raised almost $1,000 (the total on the website does not include checks I've received, and several donors also will get matching funds donated by their companies).  A great start, but not even 1/3rd of what I hope to raise.  For everyone who has already donated, a hearty thank you!  I hope the Comedy Night will put another big dent in the target, and I know everyone will continue to be as generous supporting me as I raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!

Please consider making a donation to support finding a cure for Leukemia & Lymphoma at my website.

I do not know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your website. It seems like some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a issue with my browser because I've
had this happen previously. Cheers

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it
can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
