I have not posted in a bit, partly because life is keeping me busy, and partly because I was on vacation. The family and I just got back from a 10 day Vacation abroad, and it was simply amazing. As I sit writing this, I am thinking about why the trip was so great, and one of them has to be the fact that for 10 days I was completely "unplugged". I am a pretty heavy tech user, and it is uncommon to find me without my phone, or an internet connection of some kind.
On this Vacation we were out of the country, and often in the middle of the Mediterranean Ocean, and as such I had not Cell Phone service, and no internet Connection (Granted, I could have purchased Internet time, but it was not an inexpensive proposition). Because of that lack of connection, I did not worry about very much other than having fun, and spending time with my Family.
This was the first time in many years (I think like 8 or so) that I have gone longer than 3 days without checking my email, or using my cell phone, and it was a great experience. This will definitely be model for vacation from here forward for me, as it makes the vacation much easier to enjoy. The long and short of it is that spending time with the family is more important than anything else I have going on (and I am just not that important of a guy..).

Alright, alright... I'll get it done as soon as I can.....
Yesterday I recieved not 1, but 2 different contacts via my "Contact Me" page. This is pretty unusual, I normally recieve about 1 a month, so to have 2 in one day was a little odd. On top of that, it was both of the "grandmothers" (My mother and my Mother-in-law) contacting me about the same thing.... getting pictures of Keira up on the site. Here is what they had to say:

It's not Often that I post stuff about my family (or in-laws) but this is a worthy cause. My father-in-law was diagnosed with a leukemia / lymphoma (Still not totally sure what it is) in 2003 and has been dealing with it since that time.
One of my wife's colleagues, Edie Gurewitsch, is a part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. This is a program that raises money to help find a cure for leukemia & lymphoma. Dr. Gurewitsch's team (The Next Generation) will be riding 100 miles on a bike to helo raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
If have the time & or money please take a chance and visit the site and consider donating to this cause. No amount is too small, it all adds up in the end. The site can be found here:
