Vote for Kinga!
I don't usually do this, but...
Lots of people ask how they can help in the fight against ALS, and here's a really easy way. Vote. Every day. With as many emails as you have. And ask your families and friends to vote too.

Here's the deal: I know an awesomely amazing young woman, Kinga Njilas, who is doing all she can to fight ALS by raising awareness and funds for research, and we can help.  Despite losing her mother in January, Kinga continues to do all she can to make a difference so other families won't have to go through the pain she has.

Kinga is currently a finalist in Canada's Most Inspiring Young Leader contest sponsored by Mike & Ike's. The winner will receive a $1,500 donation for their designated charity, along with $1,000 in Mike & Ike's candy to use for fundraising purposes.  Voting runs through May 25, and you can vote once per day for every email address you have.

Please take a moment to click on the link below and cast as many votes as you can (and continue to do so through May 25) for Kinga!

Welcome to Aimee's Blah, Blah, Blog...
With great trepidation, we introduce the latest feature on a blog.

We acknowledge the pathetically long gaps between new entries to the website, and we appreciate the gentle prodding from visitors who would like to see more frequent updates about what's keeping us busy. 

So, in an attempt to dispel the notion that Aimee lounges at home all day in her World Series Champions gear (okay, that part is true) with her feet up (never!), eating bon-bons (often) and catching up on the latest trade rumors and spring-training reportswhile Jim is out saving the world in his S-emblazoned red cape, of course—we are experimenting with a blog to provide (weekly? biweekly? monthly?) updates on our activities.

However, come Opening Day, we're not promising anything...

[Note: Aimee is the author of the blog. All first-person accounts are hers unless otherwise noted. Any pro-Cubs entries are obviously the unauthorized work of Jim and should be reported to the proper authorities immediately.]
