Please join me in supporting the March of Dimes

This weekend, my wife and I, along with our two kids will be walking in the March of Dimes Walk in Kankakee, IL.  The March of Dimes is committed to improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality through research, community service, education and advocacy.

We are fortunate to have two healthy children; we are walking in support of our cousin Mia.  Two years ago, Mia was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.  She has already endured three open-heart surgeries and faces at least one additional procedure before her third birthday.  Not to turn this into a health care debate, but Mia will exhaust her health insurance coverage’s $1,000,000 lifetime benefit by the time she turns three.

If you would like to support me and Mia please head to our March of Dimes website at http://www.marchforbabies.org/dezmom.  

Thanks in advance for your support,
Brian

You know, for someone who claims to be a rogue and isn’t afraid of what other people think it really is sort of hypocritical to not let the media, the press cover your event.

I just want some cash (which is just as good as money)

Today AFLAC decided they were going to deny my wife’s disability claim because their agent made a mistake at the time of application.  Instead, they want to pretend the contract was never signed and just return the premiums paid.  Um, that’s not how contracts work, even for talking ducks.

We’ll see about this, but its not going to go away quietly.

Unbelievably, this did not happen in Florida.  It is actually from Norway. (via)

I do take photos of things other than plants.  Occasionally, my kids.

One last trip to the apple orchard turned out to be a great day for photos.
