Hello and Happy Groundhog Day to one and all!
Evidently Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning which means that we are going to have 6 more weeks of winter. Looking out the window here at the Center, I am sure that Mr. Phil was NOT in Birmingham, about the only thing he would see today would be his reflection in a puddle of water on the concrete.
It is hard to believe that today is February 1, 2009. It is still odd to even write 2009 much less it be 2 months into the year. (I guess it is true that the older you get the faster the time goes).
I wanted to let you know that we have a major event in the works this year at the Center. I do not know all the dates but PLEASE keep a watch here to know the dates of one of THE places to be in March.
P.S. - A friend of mine runs the "Birmingham Terminal" website (www.bhamterminal.com) a young girl in the Children's Hospital is in desperate need of platelets. (I called to see if I could donate but you have to be able to sustain a 16 gauge needle in each arm and I don't have it)
If you can help please call:
American Red Cross - 1 (888) 905-3344
Tell them that you want to donate platelets and you want to be a direct donor for Hannah Grace Harrison.
They will take down your information and will call you back with a time to schedule the donation.
Well, that's all for now!
Talk to you soon!
