I happen to enjoy the heck out of this time of year and I think it's because there are so many opportunities to help others. I've been on the Christmas to Cure Cancer bandwagon for years now... and it's for a number of reasons. The CD's that Mark Puskarich has produced are fun and full of holiday cheer... the people who support the cause are a wonderful, caring group who know how to have a good time... and most importantly, funds raised (and I mean every dollar) goes to fight cancer and comfort cancer patients. The new campaign is all about the latter as Mark explains in our chat.
Good stuff! So this Friday I'll be bartending at the Columbus Zoo for Christmas to Cure Cancer's annual event. It's a great time with live music, drinks and hors d'oeurves, and really interesting auction items. I've bought some great stuff over the years for Christmas gifts and all the while I'm fighting cancer! I hope you'll consider coming out to have fun and support Christmas to Cure Cancer. If you can't make it, you can give directly to the Heather Pick Music Program... click here for the info.
Love this time of year and this really impresses me... not sure I've ever seen someone repurpose a piano! Anyway, here's 'Angels We have heard on High.'
You never really think about it, but it's always good to be prepared for emergencies. I'm talking about natural disasters, active shooters... anything that could cause a panic. Click through and see if it makes sense for you to app it up. Here's nine essential apps for storms and emergencies. I especially like the wild edibles (hey, middle aged fat guys get hungry, right?) and the winter weather app. I know we don't really want to think about it, but the cold winds are coming...
And no, the President's Cup streaker wasn't an emergency, but there were plenty of alerts... including on the Corby show yesterday.
And you thought the holidays couldn't get any worse...
Adorable kids make anything cuter... just hope you can overlook the inaccuracies in this rendition of 'The Story of Thanksgiving"
And... if you want to avoid Black Friday shopping, these people want you to repair your clothes instead of buying new ones.
Ah yes, the University says they going to attempt to reign in the Mirror Lake jump, a Michigan week tradition, and look what happens... students lept a day early.
Wonder how big it'll be tonight? Probably bigger than last year...
