A Weekly Offering of This n That

Rainy Day is my alter ego. She is the little angel that sits on one shoulder and whispers in my ear to forgo that 6" piece of triple chocolate fudge with the four scoops of ice cream on it; she is also the little devil who sits on my other shoulder and convinces me that I can eat just one bite of each and be satisfied, and then laughs with such great abandon when in fact, I eat the whole thing, she falls off my shoulder. Mostly, Rainy Day helps me see the humor in living and, mostly, she encourages me down the right path. Not necessarily the straight and narrow one (how fun is that?) but the path that offers the most adventure and fun.

Out of the Darkness

Blogging, as you may know, is a fun way to meet new people, especially when they comment;-) (hint, hint)

At any rate, Rainy Day met Justine Dell through the Grammar Police segment of her blog and Justine, and a friend of hers (and writer) Sarah Fine are working on a project, Out of the Darkness Walk. Rainy Day has lost friends and family (of choice) to suicide, and supports this project. She asked Justine to write for this week's blog, and so we are posting one day early so even more of you, Gentle Readers, can have an opportunity to help make a difference by joining in a walk and or bidding on one of the great items and or donate.

Justine, Rainy Day now turns her blog over to you while she scoots back to the kitchen to get ready for the 6th Annual Jam Session. Thank you, Justine, for taking over this week's blog, and for helping out in such a wonderful cause.

Put them together, Gentle Readers, and welcome Auther, Ms Justine Dell!!!

Hello Gentle Readers and Peeps everywhere! And you, Rainy Day, go have fun in the kitchen. We'll get along just fine.

Over 34,000 people die each year in the U.S. alone from suicide. 

Worldwide there are more deaths due to suicide than to accidents, homicide and war combined.
