Inspired by my good friend Rob Cairns, @RobCairns on Twitter; I am putting out my list of three things I Can’t Live Without. As Rob mentioned in his post, this is an updated version of what you would take on a desert island if you had the choice.1. My iPhone – It is my connection to the world through social media as well as the applications I use to update my websites, blog, calendar, etc. It truly is a mini computer that also contains my music and videos. 2. My MacBook Pro – If you haven’t guessed by now, I am a Mac person, and the MB Pro is my tool of choice for computing for a multitude of reasons. Ease of use, portable, and oh yeah, it just works.
3. My sunglasses – you can never be too careful with your eyes! There are too many beautiful sites and people in the world and I do not want to take the chance of damaging my peepers As you will notice, there is no big screen TV or the creature comforts of home. Why? It’s simple, with my iPhone, my MB Pro and my shades, I can be comfortable most anywhere and I have the ability to work, communicate and be entertained. What about you?
I attended a blood drive today sponsored by the Junior League of Roanoke Valley ( http://bit.ly/dcBWMfp ) to help out the American Red Cross.Some interesting statistics from the Red Cross on blood needs: ??? Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.
??? More than 38,000 blood donations are needed every day.
??? A total of 30 million blood components are transfused each year in the U.S. (2006).
??? The average red blood cell transfusion is approximately 3 pints.
??? The blood type most often requested by hospitals is Type O.
??? The blood used in an emergency is already on the shelves before the event occurs.
??? Sickle cell disease affects more than 80,000 people in the U.S., 98 percent of whom are African American. Sickle cell patients can require frequent blood transfusions throughout their lives.
??? More than 1 million new people are diagnosed with cancer each year. Many of them will need blood, sometimes daily, during their chemotherapy treatment.
??? A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 pints of blood. Find out more and discover how easy it is to donate in your area by visiting the Red Cross website: http://bit.ly/b50i0O
I was at the Roanoke Regional Airport today and had the honor to watch several members of our United States Military check in and say goodbye to their loved ones. While trying not to stare and giving them the privacy they deserved, I watched several of the husbands and wives; boyfriends and girlfriends steal a few moments alone, away from others; just to spend a few more precious minutes face-to-face, arm in arm.Thank you to the men and women that serve. We owe you a debt that we can never repay. A special thank you as well to the family members that tonight, are missing their loved ones more than ever.
