With the flip into the New Year so starts my 7th year of fundraising for the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life. I have been informed that I broke the $20,000 barrier for all-time fundraising last year. I am very proud of this achievement.

This year I participate in support of my friend Jake Burgholzer who is fighting Stage 4 Kidney Cancer.

I want to make it so that there doesn't even have to be a fight!

Seti folks have always been VERY generous in helping me. This year my goal is again $2,500 but we have proven again and again that we can do more then that.

The event will be Friday June 15. If you'd like to donate the link is: http://main.acsevents.org/goto/pete2018

As a bonus, I offer this to my Seti friends. If I hit $2500 in fundraising by May 1st, I will personally donate to Seti. Won't be huge due to the fact that I donate a lot personally to Relay myself but I will promise this. I will ask Angela to independently verify if and when this occurs.

I will not be thanking people by name out of respect to confidentiality.

Thank you for all your support!!!

I'm struggling this Christmas...not as bad as a few days ago. Thursday night we had a "Longest Night" or "Blue" Christmas service and it lifted me. It's my first Christmas w/ out Mom.

Suz put up the stockings Mom made for us -mine as a child and one for Suz when we got married. I bawled for a good hour before work that day.

Hoping my spirits lift after Christmas because it's incredibly painful right now

NFL Pre-Analysis & Prediction: Buffalo Bills vs NY Jets.

Ok it's round 2 tonight.

The Jets were supposed to be tanking but are a slight 3-5 while the Bills stroll in at 5-2.

Offense-wise, the Jets have some firepower. McCown has been around for a long time and can be hot/cold. He throws a pretty deep ball but tends to give timely gift Interceptions. Their RB, Matt Forte, just can't seem to get a good run going and won't against a red-hot Bills defense.

The Bills come in on a serious roll. The defense is playing lights out. Offense just acquired Carolina's stud WR Kelvin Benjamin in a trade and he is going to play as I've been told. He's a tall, solid target for QB Tyrod Taylor. LeSean "Shady" McCoy has busted loose over the past couple weeks and doesn't show any signs of slowing down. Of course we have the Coup de Grace --the money man-Kicker Stephen Hauschka!

Bills win 24-16.

Winning today seeking peace. Spent past cpl weeks getting Dad in his new home and cleaning/removing stuff and selling items from old house. Hardest thing I've done. Then on top of it yesterday would've been Mom's 79th birthday.

Really need a break....

We had our Relay for Life event last night.

I again exceeded my goal of $2500 with $2805 with some more expected this week. I was recognized as the 4th highest fundraiser at the event.

The team did about $4700 placing us 4th.

The event totalled at $62,000 and some change!

Thank you to all who donated!!!!
