Pure Sweet Honey and the ALS Run

Once again, our friends at Pure Sweet Honey Farm have made a wonderful contribution to Calgary’s ALS fundraiser – a walk/run/roll called Betty’s Run. Here is a great big THANK YOU to Willi and Stan at Pure Sweet. They help this organization a lot. The money raised each year by the ALS Society in Calgary helps with all sorts of equipment and aids to daily living for victims of the disease. Contributions to the society also supports research. It is all appreciated so much!

For all my readers and friends (Man, there are a lot of you!), I’ll do my annual quality-of-life update. I’m OK. My type of ALS is really, really slow. Diagnosed 14 years ago, but I can still walk a little, still drive my van, still write my blogs, and still do my geophysics. The quality-of-life department includes family and friends and they have all been a great support. Thank you!
