1. It's March. It's time for college basketball rant....... Unfortunately, the Kentucky Wildcats finished 3-4 on its last 7 games, including a heartbreaking loss in Lexington in the hands of the Tigers, and a massacre at Gainville FL by the Gators. This is an indication that - barring miracles - the Wildcats will not do well at the NCAA Championship. Therefore I will shut up. Don't you love me when I don't scream about basketball?

2. My company joins a fundraising program Big Brothers Big Sisters of The Bluegrass to sponsor children in needs of better lives. I join the bowling team for this effort. What happens is the company team (christened eloquently by our fearless Captain Michelle as "The Belcan Blackhawks") will battle other teams from other companies in a bowling alley.
This is a fundraising effort, so we do need support. I am putting the team's website here just in case anybody wants to sponsor me (or my team) to play bowling
You can read the purpose of the fundraising on the website. My company will match your donation, so the child in need will actually receive double the amount of money we raise through donation. This is a charitable contribution, meaning it's tax deductible. Captain Michelle and Mrs. Rogue (who is a tax expert, by the way ) can attest that. That means you get an exemption for your next tax report.
But wait, there's more. For every $10 you donate, I will draw you something. So if you donate $50, I will draw you 5 drawings. Just ask anything, you know I'll draw anything (yeah, yeah, I see that dirty smile on your face ). I took down my point commission because this has to take precedence.
So this is a great situation for you. Remember, all proceeds go to the child in need. I don't get anything out of this, just fatigue and pride. But you? You get to help children in need of better lives, you get tax exemption, and you get drawing(s) from me, depending how much you donate. Oh, by the way, if you do donate, make sure you donate under my real name "Philip". There's only one "Philip" on the Blackhawks, so you won't miss me.
That's all, folks. Happy donating..... hopefully.....
