Got Nothing

Quick Thoughts
* I am leaving work early today to give platelets, aka Apheresis. Let me take just a second to say that everyone (who has good blood, that is) should give blood ... and even better, if you have a high platelet count, sign up for Apheresis. It is a way for us 'normal people' (not in the Armed Forces, not Police nor Fire Fighters, etc.) to save lives. Go do it; and get your work to host blood drives too!
