Bust a Move Tuesday

It's Tuesday whatever time of the day for myself, as I burn the candle at both ends as well as the damn middle! I'm in a self imposed dead heat to produce the NABWMT media piece. It's been exhilarating and challenging to pull all the elements together for our end of month publishing. Not to mention, I'll be on the road later this week for our national board meeting in the Badger State. Go ahead and do your google to find out where I'm going. Hey let's through a prize in with it. The first person to discover that location will get a gift from our prize closet. Didn't think we had a prize closet did ya? Well, ya wrong and we do. So let the games begin, in the meantime here's our fast track post as I dash for the deadline and Airport!

Citizen Brunch: Take note of the Stonewall Democrats Quiche Brunch fundraiser, Saturday, November 14Th 11am-1pm. This fundraiser will feature a variety of quiche dishes, Mimosas, Bloody Marys, coffee, orange juice and dessert items. The invite didn't quote who would be catering this event, but I'm sure that it's going to be tasty treat! During this effort the Stonewall Democrats will honor Ruth Shepherd of Just Communities of Central Arkansas with a special “Friend of the LGBT Community” award. They are looking forward to seeing everyone at the brunch to help Stonewall Democrats continue to “Make a Difference in Our Community”!

Your Mother Told You So!: In this germ filled, H1N1, seasonal flu, med resistant world we now inhabit, it's amazing that the simple task that ya moma told ya, works just fine. WASH YOUR HANDS! This Thursday, 9.15.09 is Global Handwashing Day! Yes folks, washing your nasty little paws can go a long way in keeping you healthy, wealthy and maybe wise. Believe it or not, there's a website for this event( isn't there one for every thing these days?) where you can get some spot on facts about using the h2o and soap. It's just so simple I keep thinking, especially as I wash my own little phalanges more times than I can count in a day's time. According to the website,(www.gloablhandwashingday.org) "Hand washing with soap is the most effective and inexpensive way to prevent diarrhea and acute respiratory infections, which take the lives of millions of children in developing countries every year. Together, they are responsible for the majority of all child deaths. Yet, despite its lifesaving potential, hand washing with soap is seldom practiced and difficult to promote. The challenge is to transform hand washing with soap from an abstract good idea into an automatic behavior performed in homes, schools, and communities worldwide. Turning hand washing with soap before eating and after using the toilet into an ingrained habit could save more lives than any single vaccine or medical intervention, cutting deaths from diarrhea by almost half and deaths from acute respiratory infections by one-quarter. A vast change in hand washing behavior is critical to meeting the Millennium Development Goal of reducing deaths among children under the age of five by two-thirds by 2015. " Did you get that? Here's it is again...WASH YOUR HANDS and OFTEN. enough said.
