Growing my 'MO' (mustache) for Movember!

Hi, 
 
This Movember I’ve decided to donate my face to raising awareness about cancers that affect men.  My commitment is the growth of a moustache for the entire month of Movember, which I know will generate conversation, controversy and laughter.

I’m doing this because:

·     1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in his lifetime

·     1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime


I'm also doing this to bring awareness to men's health issues in general. My dad passed away 12 years ago, not from cancer, from a heart attack. But he had health issues that he kind of kept to himself. And if he'd been more up front about them, maybe things would have been different. I'm not saying the out come would have been any different, I'm not saying "what if" I just wish we would have been a little bit more prepared is all...

This is a cause that I feel passionately about and I’m asking you to support my efforts by making a donation to support the great work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.  To help, you can either:

-  Write a check payable to Movember, referencing my name or Registration Number 1120014 and mailing it to: Movember, PO Box 2726, Venice, CA 90294-2726
 
The money raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others, through the world’s most promising prostate cancer research and LIVESTRONG’s programs that support young adults and their families battling and surviving cancer.

Thank you. - Jim

Local Schools Put on Lock Down! Sign of the Times...(sigh)

Three schools in Carpinteria were put on lockdown mode earlier this morning after a robbery incident that took place at a convenient store on the 500 block of Linden Ave. Aliso, Canalino, and Carpinteria Middle School were all put on lockdown mode for about two and a half hours today while the Sheriff’s Department conducted a search for the suspect.
Witnesses say the man entered the store around 8AM and threatened a clerk with a knife. He then stabbed the clerk in the chest before taking off. No word yet on the condition of the clerk. Meanwhile Sheriff’s deputies, along with a helicopter and K-9 unit searched the surrounding area for the suspect. A few hours later the suspect was taken into custody and the lockdown at the schools was lifted.


By the way... my sister Julia was at Aliso School during the lock down with the kids. She works part of her day at Aliso and part of her day at Canalino. So either way, she would have been on lock down at one school or the other. And when they're on lock down it is literally, physically on LOCK DOWN. They could not go ANYWHERE. The entire time! They had to use trash cans to pee in... good times good times... Luckily I was able to keep in touch with her through text. So that was comforting. And of course the kids had no idea what was going on. But I can't imagine how much of the school's day is just turned upside down because of this. THREE schools, pretty much most of the school district was on lock down for about three hours. That's a lot of adults and kids that are affected by this because some stupid idiot tries to rob a store. It's just really upsetting on so many levels...


I hope the clerk is ok. Their condition is still not known at the time of this posting. I'm trying to find out more on the suspect. All I know is he's described as black and either a teen or young man in his twenties.
And this is the second incident in CARP! in just a few days! WAY too close to home!
