End of (summer) Days

As we enter the last couple of weekends of the unofficial summer season, a reminder that the weather is supposed to be great this Sunday when the Phillies play the Padres.  And if you go, and if you buy a 50-50 raffle ticket, half the raffle’s proceeds goes to the nonprofit CADEkids.CADEkidsheader

So, make it a Sunday to get some sun, see the young Phillies and make a difference.

To Help Gabe

This is my first crowdsourcing request. It’s to help Gabriel Vallie. Gabriel lost his father in a car accident when Gabe was little.  Now, Gabe’s mother, Heidi, and uncle, Frederick, were murdered a few days ago in New Jersey by Heidi’s fiance. The gunman, after a standoff with police, killed himself.  I met Gabe last year at West Virginia University.  He is a good young man. A lot of healing now has to be done.  We can give him a little of that hope by making sure he can finish his education at WVU. If you can spare a few dollars please go to
