Welcome Home!

I just wanted to share the big Miller news…… We have a new family member – the sweetest and most playful rescue any small family could hope for! Hope that all is well with your family and friends!

Namaste.

Pink

No, not the artist, whose new album has blared in my car a time or two recently. But the cause that we all think of when we see the color, especially during the month of October. I have participated in many charity walks, runs, bake sales, etc in my life, but none that felt quite like it did this weekend at the Making Strides Breast Cancer walk in Concord. I have written a bit about B, A, and I here in the past, but was honored on Sunday to walk with them in commemoration of their beloved Steph. The event tore at my heart in a way that it never could have before, and I was so proud to have my family join me (where Platy was able to capture some amazing photos). It was chilly and rainy, but the overwhelming support that turned out for this family (and the many others who have been affected by this monstrous disease) was heartwarming. I hope that they continue to receive the support that they need as they move forward in this new life.

Smoking

This is just disgusting…..and makes me wonder how people can keep going! Especially those with kids – “1000 youths START smoking EVERY day” peer pressure is one thing, but how many of those have family at home who smoke?!

It is part of my job to monitor the chemicals that personnel use at work – and to put them in the proper protective equipment as necessary….. Having tested for and enforced protection usage on 7 out of the 10 listed chemicals – WHY would you put those in to your body by choice?! Arsenic – REALLY?

I love the chemical bonding depicted in the HCN – just for those nerds who are paying attention! But, there’s another one – thank you to those who feel the need to expose me and my family to cyanide poisoning just so that you can “practice your freedom” to smoke wherever you want.
