Hey Gang,

Hope you're all enjoying the last few days of summer (or vice versa down under ). For those of you curious about the CD fundraising project: as of this afternoon, I've received pledges of support for my 'Next CD' survey totaling $20,500. That's pretty cool if you think about it and it's pretty close to making this whole thing work.

Will I reach the half-way target of $25,000 by September 1?  With $4,500 left and only three more days to go? Yikes!

Hmmmm.... could be... it's pretty close... you just never know! I'll have the answer by this weekend and I'll let you know how it all pans out.

If this was a telethon, I'd introduce the 40 piece Paramus High School Marching Band and Cheerleader Squad, right about now, performing their brass band rendition of 'I am in Love With the McDonald's Girl'. I'm sure it would be inspiring - especially the flaming baton twirlers. (in their polyester uniforms).

You'll just have to picture it in your mind's eye.  In fact, while you're at it, you might as well picture yourself too - happy, healthy and spending your days doing things you care about and surrounded by loved ones. Some people actually achieve this, if only for brief stretches of time; it may seem like a longshot, but it's always worth striving for.

Be well and happy Labor Day
