Next Week's Theme?

Hey all,

Hows is everyone doing? Hope everyone had a great weekend so far. I have decided that I enjoy doing a theme for the week, so I will be doing that for the foreseeable future. I hope you all enjoy the format as much as I do. However, I cannot decide what I want the focus for this upcoming week to be, there are so many options.

I have decided to make it a a bit of a contest to encourage my readers to comment on my blog. I will focus this week's blogs on the topic suggested by the first comment left on this post, by someone following my blog. That comment is the winner, but there are also runner up prizes. I will choose my favorite out of the remaining topics and focus on that the following week.

So, I would appreciate many comments and suggestions for the next two weeks. Please comment and tell me what issues you are passionate about. Thanks and have a great day.


  1. Well, seeing as how mother recently had colon cancer, I would say that. Cancer research/prevention/treatment. And there are a lot of rarely hear of kinds that probably get a lot less attention than they deserve.

    P.S. I hope that is what you meant by theme

  2. Duderussi, hope your mom is doing better. Best wishes. Email if there is anything we can help with.

    I tend to focus my monetary charity donations to international aid organizations that provide infrastructure help (like Hiefer).

    Here at home, I would like to do volunteer work.

  3. Someone tried to post a comment and failed so emailed me instead. Here is there email:

    "the damn security check blocked me.
    I suggested the charities that give prosthetic's to people who live in land mine countries.
    But the real pressing issue right now being Pakistan - unparalleled, and no international response, totally fucked up."
