Thumbs up OT - but a great story

I've mentioned that my wife is a volunteer for Make-A-Wish foundation. Here's a link to a short video showing a wish she arranged for a local kid who is a big fan of NASCAR. The kid and his family went to Portland International Raceway today, met a bunch of drivers and got to ride in a race car. She also got a trophy donated to him engraved with his name and the quote "Official Honorary NASCAR Driver".

Great story as always Mark! She's a keeper!

Now, you on the other hand........
There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.

Unfortunately, four days after receiving his wish, Alec passed away. There's going to be a fund raising walk and run in a few weeks to raise money for his medical bills and to also help cancer research. His mom has cancer.

We're just glad he had a chance to fulfill his wish.
Yom HaShoah
