Living Below the Line

This spring 25,000 people worldwide (including myself!) took the challenge to eat and drink on $1.75 a day for 5 days! We are lived Below the Line so others can rise above it. The initiative was set to raise $4.4 million for the world’s leading anti-poverty organizations.

Name that Band!

So, back to the music again. Sorry I must seem to go on and on about this but it is a passion and I can't help it. We confirmed this week that our former lead guitarist Jim "Snowflake" Robinson is bowing out due to time pressures and extensive travel involved in his new job.

The other day, a friend realized how much work it is to lead a cause like Junior Achievement (blogged about last week), and asked WHY? Why put so much effort into this? Why take the lead and drive this in my company, across the country?
