Breast Cancer Walk

This year, I'll be participating in the "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" event of the American Cancer Society. Our local walk will be at the end of September. I'm dedicating this walk to the memories of my cousin and my aunt who bravely fought breast cancer during their lives, and in honor of surviving relatives and friends who are an inspiration to us all.

For more information about participating in your area, here is a link to the event:

If anyone would like to sponsor my walk, please send an e-mail to and I'll send you the link to my donations page.

African Webcam

There's a very interesting page on the National Geographic website called "Pete's Pond". It's a link to a live webcam of Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana, Africa. At various times of the day, you can see elephants, snakes, lizards, birds, and lions. The sounds of chirping insects and splashing water are very relaxing.

Edit: The tinyurl link isn't working. I'll put it in the comments section, if I can.

Hat tip to Jillan.
