Last year Steve's wife Julie was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia. It's essentially a bone marrow disease that causes the body to stop producing new blood cells. The best treatment option is a bone marrow transplant with around a 50% success rate for people over 40. She has a matching donor and is scheduled for the transplant on April 30 in Vancouver. 

Julie has a blog here with more information:
http://julieasjournal.wordpress.com

Steve and Julie have been great friends of Charmaine and I throughout the years. It's really hard to watch them going through this and we're helping every way that we can. I hope you can spare a few dollars to send their way, but even if you can't, maybe you could leave a comment on her blog letting them know you care.

A lot of things about the Harper majority have annoyed me or even scared me.  I was already considering not voting conservative in the next election and now as I watch this unfold, I'm positive I'm not voting conservative.
Harper just took his first chance to cut $36 billion from Canada’s public health care and he’s breaking the pact that all Canadians should get equal care, no matter what province you live in. We have to stop this! Click here to stop the sabotage.

How do you decide when it's done?  You could go on forever adding detail, tweaking, improving.

Hal nails it again.

Don't get me wrong, I love the games on my Xbox One, but for movies and TV it really does suck.
