Support Chrissy in the Chesapeake Challenge MS Walk

I am posting this for Chrissy, my wife. She is fundraising for the MS walk this year.
I would like to thank you for supporting me last year as I walked most of the 50k (only 28 of the 31 miles). I'm hopeful that this year I'll be able to do for the entire walk, as long as it's not too hot! 
So, I have registered for the Challenge Walk MS Chesapeake Challenge for my second year to support funding of services and research for the fight against multiple sclerosis. At some point during the Chesapeake Challenge, my feet might ache or I might feel tired, but I know that there are people who's MS is far worst than mine. I'm one of the lucky ones with this disease and I count my lucky stars every day for that! 
That's why I'm asking you to support my fund raising efforts with a tax deductible donation.
It's faster and easier than ever to support this cause that's so important to me. Simply click on the link at the bottom of this message. 
Any amount, great or small, helps to make a difference in the lives of people with MS. I appreciate your support and look forward to letting you know how I do. 
P.S. If you would like more information about the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, how proceeds from the Chesapeake Challenge are used, or the other ways you can get involved in the fight against MS, please visit

I don't always blog...

...but when I do I talk about the fact I don't blog much.
I have been keeping busy with work work, freelance work, and house work. Work work wise I have been a promotion in the "more responsibility" way, not in the "more money" way. So, now I have even more minions that I am held somewhat accountable for but they largely manage themselves fortunately.
In the realm of freelance work, I have been adding updates to the GSMD Rescue website and pondering where I may be able to drum up more business.  Around the house we have put in a shed and put down landscaping timbers and stone around that.  We are also in the process of putting landscaping timbers around the deck, but were one short this weekend and haven't taken the truck to home Depot yet for the last one.
I also took the day off on Tuesday to watch Discovery be flown over the National Mall on the back of a 747 on route to Dulles airport.  That was an amazing experience and I am glad I spent the leave to see that.  I posted some pictures on Flickr and a video on YouTube.
I have another post to put up soon, and I need to go back and link-i-fy this post because the android app does not appear to be adding them. Links have been added.
