Took a break

Hello all, just want to let everyone know that I just took a little break. Work and life have been keeping me from updating this blog.

Today is such a nice and sunny day here in Columbus Ohio though it is kind of chili with the wind blowing a little bit, hope you guys and gals go out and get some fresh air if you can.

Catching up on some news and I am glad that our Military was able to save the captain Richard Phillips from those pirates.

As for those pirates who thinks you can get away with anything, guess what, you will just end up fish food.

Anyways, enough of my humble opinion.

Well, we are still at $5 and long way to get to a million.

Lets see if we can make $5 more by the end of next week :).

Help Cure Lung Desease like Cancer

Hello everyone. I would like to say farewell to my friend Ms. Gretchen Courtright who had moved on. Me, Tammey and Taco will meet you up there someday and have the best coffee heaven can offer :).

As for now, I would like to add the American Lung Association to our list of possible organization to donate to. I believe a lot of people will be helped by them.

This is what they do

The American Lung Association supports basic and clinical research through training and “seed” grants for researchers who are at the early stage of their careers. Throughout its history, the American Lung Association has funded talented scientists who have furthered their careers in academia and lung research and have made significant contributions to the fight against lung disease.

As part of its commitment to research, the American Lung Association created the Asthma Clinical Research Centers Network (ACRC), which seeks to conduct large clinical trials that will have a direct impact on patient care and asthma treatment.

Anyone eat Crabs, Shrimp, or Lobsters?

Interesting read on how crustaceans appear to feel pain and remembers it!


Well, I personally think that all beings with brains, if subjected to some sort of stimuli and the brain perceives it as unpleasant, will surely move away from it (some humans like pain though).

Anyways, it was a good read :).

Happy Monday

Hello everyone!

I wish everyone's Monday will go through quick and painless :) but hey, if you have sunny sky you should enjoy the day right? If it's dark and cloudy, then maybe you should relax and enjoy a nice cup of your favorite tea :).

Today's organization is called Child Help.


Childhelp exists to meet the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of abused, neglected and at-risk children. We focus our efforts on advocacy, prevention, treatment and community outreach.

National Military Family Association

Hello everyone!

I used to be a Navy brat. I always hated it when he gets deployed but that is part of military life. When I was in the Air Force, I was lucky enough not to be deployed (pre 9/11).

There are a lot of Military families waiting for their loved ones deployed overseas and I want to support them. Today, our featured organization is the National Military Family Association.

This is their mission (according to their website).

The National Military Family Association (NMFA) was organized in 1969 as the National Military Wives Association by a group of wives and widows seeking financial security for survivors of uniformed service personnel and retirees. From their efforts, the Survivor Benefit Plan came into being. In the ensuing years, NMFA has been in the vanguard of advocacy for improvements in the quality of military family life. The name of the organization was changed in 1984 to reflect the broad scope of its involvement. NMFA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) association.

Hello everyone!

I want to feature a Non Profit organization that researches to fight Breast Cancer in the US. The
Stefanie Spielman Fund for Brest Cancer Research.

This is where the funds would go to:

The Stefanie Spielman Patient Assistance Fund assists breast cancer patients and their families who are struggling to afford the costs associated with treatment.

Featured Organization


My wife is currently working for Goodwill. From what I can see, they have helped many getting jobs for our fellow Americans.

According to the Goodwill website:

We are North America’s leading nonprofit provider of education, training, and career services for people with disadvantages, such as welfare dependency, homelessness, and lack of education or work experience, as well as those with physical, mental and emotional disabilities. Last year, local Goodwills collectively provided employment and training services to more than 1.1 million individuals.

We believe that work has the power to transform lives by building self-confidence, independence, creativity, trust and friendships. Everyone deserves a chance to have these.

Goodwill provides that chance.

Goodwill Industries International enhances the dignity and quality of life of individuals, families, and communities by eliminating barriers to opportunity and helping people in need reach their fullest potential through the power of work.
