video part deux

Again, sorry for the silence these days… I suspect a torn tendon in my right thumb and wrist. It slows things down, eh? I made a second promo video for my fundraiser, which is now in less than a week! Watch me… laugh a while… pass it on, please! and enjoy. 🙂 The Second Dance […]


Let’s dance… the last dance… Yep, I’m making this the last one for now, so I can get my life back. I have almost twice the auction items from last year, so it promises to be HUGE! I want to hit this one out of the park! Please pass this on and help me make […]

Have you seen these? I actually saw them all over the place on my last vacation: The Home T I just opened up my package (no, I have not suddenly decided that Washington is “my home”; it’s a donation for my auction) and they’re right… these t-shirts are soft! I post about this here especially […]


Dance MS round 4 is coming up! (Poster will be… posted… forthcoming.) But while traveling… and putting a lot of work into the fundraiser while traveling (not to mention my online work)… I’ve decided this will be it. Maybe Dance MS will come back at some point. But not in 2017, or at least not […]


I try not to be negative about my MS, whether here or in real life. But sometimes, I think it misleads people to believe that everything is all unicorns and rainbows. Which it isn’t, right? I have been tired. I have lost strength, and I’ve had moments of blurred vision–not to mention paranoia about losing […]


There is a certain social media platform these days where, just by the click of a button, you can show your favor just by saying “like”. The universal thumbs-up. Just a few weeks ago, when we traveled internationally, it occurred to me just how universal the thumbs-up has become, thanks to Facebook (whereas, in some […]


If you follow some of the college sports media, or anything regrading fundraising, you may have heard of Lauren Hill. This young lady was diagnosed with a rare yet aggressive form of brain cancer, yet still continued to play basketball for her school throughout her treatment. In fact, it’s said that her love for the […]


A few days ago, I started writing up my annual review, in the style of a few other bloggers. My first post only addressed travel, which is a high priority in my life. (I’ll admit it also gave me a few days to procrastinate on the other points…) So, what went well this year? Surviving […]


It’s now been 24 hours since the second Dance MS started. (I know I’ve gone more than my usual time since posting, but I wanted to wait until I was done with the show…) And–another success! Attendance was lower this year (probably because it was a random warm/sunny weekend in Seattle?) but the auction really […]


One more time… it’s this coming Saturday at 7pm, in West Seattle, that I’m hosting the 2nd annual Dance MS with my band. (And, despite the name, dancing is not required! Sitting and listening is fine… but the name Sit And Listen MS just doesn’t have the same ring.) Anyway, we’ll be at the West […]
