Roland's quest for a kidney

I like to think of myself as a technologist. Professionally, I help companies find technology solutions to business problems. Now I get to use my skills for my husband.

As many of you may know, Roland has Polycystic Kidney Disease, for more info.  We are in the process of creating a blog just for his, a facebook page to raise awareness and get out the word that he needs a kidney. So look for these 2 new sites, I'll publicize them on FB and my blog. I sure love him and want him to have a good quality of life, much better than he has now.

I like to support others in this effort as well, here's a few websites and folks that need a kidney. I pray that donations come forth for all.

Melissa Freiberg Larson has 2 sites for more info: 
Melissa Freiberg Larson Kidney Transplant Motorcycle Run

Jeff has interest from FB users:

my garden update


The pictures of my garden were taken on July 4th. I'm so excited because everything is going pretty crazy.  I put on one dose of 3-3-3 Organic Fertilizer that I purchased from Marvin's Organic Gardens

At the time of putting it on 13 days ago, my plants were "ok" but I was concerned about their scrawniness. The stocks were small. But not any more!!  

Look at everything! It's taking off. I'm due to put another dose of fertilizer on tomorrow and I'm so excited to see how everything will grow and grow.  One thing that Wes told me was to remove the flowers and small tomatoes off of my tomato plant until the end of June. I was a little nervous about that. But, once again he was right!! I have a zillion tomatoes, my plants boomed and are strong. I am looking forward to pulling some ripes ones in the next few weeks!! 


And here's our first "crop". Green beans, chard, peppers, okra, lettuce, basil.  We had it for dinner last night with a nice pork chop.  Yum!
