November 12, 2010


The Valour IT fundraiser ended at midnight last night. The total raised by all four teams plus unspecified added up to $92, 542.
That is $32, 542 MORE than the original goal.

The Marine Team's total at the end of the day was $37,770.
WOW!!! What a wonderful, wonderful way to end. On top.
Thank you to everybody on the Marine Team, everybody who supported the Marine Team, everybody who shared our links and everybody who donated.
Your generosity has been so overwhelming. Thank you!

Now, we have some unfinished business to take care of: The Demotivator Contest.
So, let me announce the results and congratulate the winners.
Jihad Gene's entry took first place.
The Sniper's Air Force entry took second.
Retriever's Marine entry took third.
Congratulations to all three of you and to everyone who submitted entries.
It was a great fundraiser but now I need a nap. :)

I would like to thank you and Cassy Fiano for doing such a phenomenal job with the Marine team this year.

I know how much work you ladies did, and you deserve a big round of applause.

I'm going to plead to having a mild concussion, and to mis-reading the signature. Thank you to all three of you lovely ladies. Marine Wives and Marine Moms, we couldn't do it without you.

There are far worse things in this world than being mistaken for Cass.
No harm/no foul. :)
Thanks for the kind words.

Well done, Ladies.

They couldn't have done it without you.

Yeah, it's trite, but it's still true...

*and I'm gonna cop htom's concussion plea, and I've got the MACE report ta prove it -- heh*

Excuses, excuses...

My friend has a saying that sympathy is found in the dictionary between "sh!t" and "syphilis".

Congratulations on so many things, but one thing is for certain; you made a difference and for that, I will always be grateful. Enjoy it!

Thanks, guys :)

I am very proud (and very lucky).

So...those of you left still hanging around...when are we getting this party started?

Moderation or no, when the cat's away, the mice SHOULD play ;-)

I'm still celebrating being alive, and will be for a while.
