Hello, troutnuts. Casting for Recovery is trying to win a voting challenge on the site below. This is an organization that provides no-cost flyfishing retreats to breast cancer survivors as a way to promote physical and emotional healing. CFR is currently in 6th place. If they can reach 3rd place by May 15th, when the voting ends, they will receive $50,000. You may vote for them every day by 3 different media. This Friday, 3/23, each vote for them counts 10x more than usual. So get the word out and at least vote on Friday. You can sign in using a Facebook or Twitter account.

Thanks,
Shawn

Shawn/Casey...Done.

I have a post-it on my desk here for tomorrow...Since I admitted to the post-it and not a pop-up on my Outlook you can imagine I had to do it via the "old" email route...No face on Facebook and I'm not a Twit...Tony might say otherwise since he's had to endure my carrying on about the best hockey team of the modern era, the Detroit Red Wings...;) At least it wasn't by carrier-pigeon...:)

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
