(4) Bill L. in PA: I am continuing my quest to view movies I have never seen before.  Today was a good day.  I saw a newer film and an oldie (both I had never seen before).  This morning I watched We Are Marshall and this evening I watched Mahogany.  It wasn’t a great film but Diana Ross and Billy Dee Williams were great in their roles.  I really enjoyed We Are Marshall.  Of course I will never be able to catch up to all of the movies you have seen, but hey I’m trying.  And you throw in a nail biter Eagles win and today was a good day!

(8) Janet S. in NJ: You and Cynthia look amazing! I passed your old Condo complex on my travels back and forth to Princeton today.
(9) Andy S. in PA: Re: blainesworld 940Confession Cartoon – HILARIOUS!  Thanks!
(10) Dan B. in PA: Or even Blaine_G_Newsletter@gmail.com (probably, bginbc is from an era where many ISPs required no more than a few letters for an email user ID.)
(11) Patricia L. in CA:  Fine with me whatever “send” address you want to use — I think I always get the newsletter — though in the last few months it now comes with everything underlined .
Funny re the pan — and, there is a birthday card which I like to send — it says, “Any pan is a no-stick pan if you no-cook in it”!

Community Cares Dinner – The UnBanquet

Feel free to stay home with your family and attend our UnBanquet, an idea I attribute to Blaine Greenfield. You might want to support the NNPRC.org by NOT attending our dinner (simply because you’re too far away), and sending in a donation for not attending. Suggested Ticket Price: $25.

We help struggling non-profits and families in crisis by providing the tools they need to be more successful at raising money. Already we have helped create new programs and generate new revenue for our clients, and we just got started this summer! For more details, please click:
