A tale of two Stephanies

Is anyone still there -- haven't checked out for Labor Day weekend yet? OK, here are two things I wanted to tell you about.

First, you may have checked out my posts over at the WELLalarm blog. Well, the company itself has just launched and is now in Beta. Check it out! They're looking for more testers.

Read Stephanie's inspiring story here. The short version -- young, promising executive gets seriously ill, find out its a chronic condition, fights back and starts a new business inspired by her own experience. Yeah!

Announcement #2, today was Nie Nie Day. Recently another woman named Stephanie and her husband were in a terrible plane accident. They are both recovering in the hospital, and Stephanie has burns over 80% over her body. It's serious. The couple have four children and this will affect their lives for a long time.

Design Mom has organized an auction day to benefit the family. All kinds of people selling all sorts of wonderful things (last check there were over 275 entries). Check it out! WELLalarm is also contributing. You can participate all weekend.

And now, I have to go buy a rotisserie chicken and wait in anticipation of Obama's speech tonight! Yes we can! Yes we can!

I loved Obama's speech. What did you think?

(Yes, I'm back from maternity leave!)
