Welcome to Friday, August 5th!
The very first thing I want to share with you is this video of 10-year-old Lily Anderson singing our National Anthem on 7/28/11.
Lily’s spectacular performance was part of “Rally Night” a special event for kids fighting cancer. Lily has been fighting cancer since she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma Cancer in 2009.
Lily, you make me smile the kind of smile that begins on the inside and it grows until it escapes on the outside! I look forward to following your future events!

Children’s Cancer Association [CCANews@Joyrx.org] is having a drawing where someone will win a 2011 Mini Cooper S Hardtop! If you would like to help them raise money and have a chance at driving away in a Mini at the same time, click on this link for more information:
I am finding it extremely difficult to believe that school begins in less than two weeks… phew! What happens if there are ten billion things I need to do before it begins? I can see you smiling and nodding your heads.
“Get going Melinda! Get going!!!”
Please excuse me while I locate my Warp Drive Button…
