A HUGE THANK YOU for all the support I received! The head shaving is done and the tally is in: I raised just over $2,000 and the event as a whole raised more than $10,000 for St. Baldrick's. Again, thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!

Just in case you wanted to donate but didn't get a chance, the link is still live for the next week:

One month from today I'm going to be shaving my head. That's right, at a St. Baldrick's Foundation event on May 17 at Red Door Brewing Company I'm shaving my head to help raise awareness for the Foundation and help to RAISE MONEY FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH.

This is an important cause and a donation from you would mean the world to me.

My goal is to raise $1,500. And I'm almost there. Almost. Every donatipon counts. Please help me reach that goal and together we can help in the fight against childhood cancers.

Hair grows back – kids don’t. Thank you for your support! I will think of you proudly as I shave to Conquer Childhood Cancers.

It's World Cancer Day, a day to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. Perhaps you can take a moment out your busy day to check out my link and support St. Baldrick's Foundation. Any amount you can give will help. Or you can sign up as a participant or volunteer. Please and thank you! #worldcancerday   #stbaldricks   #curecancer

Worldwide, a child is diagnosed with cancer every 3 minutes. And I've decided that I want to do something about it. So I'm doing something pretty extreme.

What am I doing? I'm going to have my head shaved at a St. Baldrick's Foundation event on May 17 at Red Door Brewing Company and a donation from you would mean the world to me.

Hair grows back – kids don’t. The money I raise will fund lifesaving childhood cancer research.

The St. Baldrick's Foundation is the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants. This is a volunteer-driven charity, which keeps fundraising costs low and grants high. St. Baldrick's gave more than $24.5 million to childhood cancer research in 2013 – almost all raised by more than 58,000 "shavees" like me, from people like you!  

Thank you for your support! I will think of you proudly as I shave to Conquer Childhood Cancers.

A great cause! Please consider helping out!
 
Please help me and share this link! And give if you can! Thank you so much. There just is NOT enough money for children's cancer research. 

Children's cancers are VERY different from adult cancers and they need their own research!

I love this gym and I love TRX. First, Rebel Workout is a local ABQ business run by truly amazing people - Rosa and Ali are great instructors, giving just the right amount of encouragement, motivation, and persuasion. The extra care that they both bring to instruction makes workouts - even the hard oh-my-god-I'm-gonna-die workouts - remarkably enjoyable. So why TRX? The TRX straps look very basic and you might mistake them for resistance bands, but TRX straps don't stretch. They allow you to use your own body weight as the resistance - which makes altering that resistance, either harder or easier - very natural and easy to do, fluid. This makes for an engaging and challenging workout for any fitness level. The true beauty - insidious, evil, make-you-work-really-really-hard beauty - of TRX is that it provides an element of instability into your workout. Although there is debate of stable versus unstable surface training - an unstable surface tending to reduce the efficacy of a workout - TRX actually keeps you on a stable surface - generally either your feet or hands are stabilized on the floor - while utilising the straps provides a controlled level of instability. Why is this good? Because that instability forces your core into action. All The. Time. This means that even ho-hum exercises like push-ups, which traditionally work very isolated muscles, now work multiple muscle groups. I'll stop now. Suffice it to say: TRX is great. And TRX at Rebel Workout is AWESOME. Thrown into the workout mix you also get Sandbells and Vipr Bars, which add additional elements into the workouts. Rebel Workout also offers Body Rolling, which is essentially directed self-message using air-filled balls of various sizes and firmness and your own body weight to release tension from your muscles. If you are looking for a great local ABQ gym to workout at once a week or a once a day that can help you get in shape, stay in shape, meet your fitness goals, Rebel Workout is the place.

Let's just get this out of the way first: I love the salad bar. Jason's has a very extensive sandwich and soup menu, a fair selection of other fair such as baked potatoes, pastas and the like, and a wonderful salad bar. The sandwiches are custom ordered so you get them just the way you want and they do not skimp on the fixings. The restaurant is large and rather noisy and is somewhat reminiscent of a cafeteria - all in a good way. Easy access from anywhere in Uptown, even when it is at its most crowded at lunch the line moves quickly and I have never had a problem finding a seat. The food arrives quickly making it a great lunch-time option. The food has always been excellent - much better and more consistent than some other Uptown places - and the wait staff is friendly and very helpful. I have always had the best customer service experience there. I also appreciate Jason's commitment to providing quality food with out all the added gunk most places still put in their food with no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup, and no MSG.

I'm a fan of the texture and colour of food as well as the flavour. And there are three reasons right there that I like Pei Wei's. The food is flavourful without being too complex and is always presented in a very pleasing way - either dining in or take-out. I like spicy and Pei Wei's delivers a reasonable kick considering it is a chain catering to the everybodys; the Thai Coconut Curry and Sriracha Chicken are both spicy if not exactly hot. You can always mix things up. I have always found the wait- and kitchen-staff helpful in creating a custom dish if no stock menu items seem to match my mood. The on-line ordering is a wonderful thing. I can put in an order and specify a pick-up time and it is always waiting for me when I get there to pick it up. The one time my order was not ready at the pick-up time I had specified, the staff was very pleasant and gave me a complimentary drink while I waited (a whopping 5 minutes). This location gets crazy busy at lunch time so planning around the rush-hour is a good idea as the line can easily go out the door and tables can be hard to come by. All-in-all always a good eating experience. You're not going to get Asian food like you bought off that cart on your trek through Vietnam when you were 17, but it is good Asian-themed food at a reasonable price.

Great little store with many delectable and (surprisingly) affordable treats! The staff is always very upbeat, friendly, and helpful. The over-all selection can be somewhat limited, so not a one-stop-grocery store, but a great compliment to a regular shopping routine. And especially as a store to find special items - like the Sugar, Chocolate & Coffee Bean Grinder! The wine selection is quite impressive. Two-Buck Chuck (Charles Shaw wines)! What's not to love? The only con is the rather small parking lot making parking a (sometimes) challenging affair.

This is a Target. It's not a two-storey Target. It's not a Super-Deluxe-Max-Bigger-Than-Every-Other-Target-­You-Have-Ever-Visited. It's just a Target, albeit a new and very clean one. Yes, it is taller than the other Targets in Albuquerque. That's because it has parking under the store. But many people seem to think this is a Target-of-a-Different-Colour. Overheard at the cash register: Cashier: "Did you find everything you were looking for?" Customer: "Well, yes, I suppose so. I just expected there to be different stuff here. A different selection than the other Targets." Cashier: "..." And yes, there is cart escalator. If you are ever bored and want cheap entertainment, just go watch the people who come to watch the cart escalator. I like Targets in general. They are my favourite general retail store. They tend to be clean, brightly lit, and generally employ pleasant and reasonably intelligent people. Plus I think Targets are pretty. (Seriously!) From an urban point of view I like the architecture and colours very much. The main attraction of this Target for me is the location; being in Uptown it is close to both home and work. It doesn't have a larger selection than other Targets - it is just a Target after all - but it does have the items I have come to expect, from toiletries to cleaning products to groceries. The under-facilities parking is very nice, especially as parking can be a premium in Uptown. The spaces are generous and there are a lot of them. This Target has a café - your general retail store-with-fast food fair - including a Pizza Hut Express. It's not great, but it is good. And convenient. There is also a Starbucks. Which I find terribly amusing because there is a Starbucks literally across the street. You can order a nice Affogato Vanilla Bean Frappuccino and then sit and stare down at the other Starbucks and wonder what all those people ordered. Overall, this is a nice addition to the retail in Uptown. It adds a lot to the Uptown shopping experience. And like most Targets it is a pleasant shopping experience.

Looking for yoga in the Denver area beyond the same-old-same-old cookie-cutter studios? Urbanasana is the place. It's right in the middle of the RiNo Art District, so it's got a funky, artsy feel, and the teachers bring a joy and freshness to the classes that make the yoga exactly what it should be: FUN! If you are new to yoga and looking for a great introduction or are an experienced yogi or yogini, Urbanasana has a class to meet your needs. The space is beautiful and a very nice departure from the typical yoga studio, putting you right in the middle of inspiring works of art. And there's chocolate. Oh, yes. A definite must for yoga in Denver.
