LAST CHANCE TO HELP OUT A BROTHER:
My friend Erin and I are doing the LA Marathon THIS SUNDAY to raise 
money for the Kitten Rescue charity. For those of you who HAVE donated,
you have my undying gratitude. HOWEVER, there's still time to help me reach my
goal. I'm only a a little over hundred bucks away, so anything would be appreciated.


 Here's the link, and Thanks!

SKIPNOTEWe're two and a half weeks away from March 19 - the day of the Los Angeles Marathon. After last year, I swore I'd never do it again, but dive/movie buddy Erin talked me into in for this year to benefit the Kitten Rescue charity. SO - I'm still asking for donations (which you can do here). 

(And a HUGE thanks to Melody, Penny & Steve, Gay & Lucky, Carole, Christine, Marilyn, Reggie, Tony, and Anonymous for your donations!)
