Thanks again to all of the volunteers who helped make the weekend such a great success! The volunteers directed traffic, manned the registration suite and raffle table, answered questions and provided information, manned various events and really contributed to a friendly and fun atmosphere.

You all ROCK!

I regret having to miss this event. Volunteering is one of the best ways to put names to faces around here (some of them you may have known for YEARS online), and to feel like you're contributing to a worthwhile affair! It's also a great way to become a more active member because you'll be more likely to volunteer next time too, which then makes it more likely that you take care of your car properly because you have people to answer to! It's funny how that works!

Lovely! Jason, Drew and I all have a virus that is behaving like Strep. I just got back from the doctor and it is fortunately not Strep, but this virus is definitely going around according to the doc.

Good luck with the appendicitis.

The appendix was out in under an hour. Now I have a week off work and homebound for most of it. I can't drive anywhere due to narcotic painkillers, but I already feel a lot better. I would have been upset if I missed fest due to this lol.
