Time to get some running shoes!

For Mother’s Day I got myself a pair of running shoes.  Not making any resolutions here, but I figure if I could quit smoking I can start running.  As usual Ive got more balls in the air then I can count!  Need to run off some steam and clear my head.  Having a hard time prioritizing.  Everything is important.

First up- Salut, Prost, Cheers... For a Cure. Our third annual wine tasting and silent auction event.  Mark your calendars for August 12th.  Stoller Vineyards has been kind enough to loan us their picturesque field again!

Purchase your tickets now and plan ahead, just follow the link.  Snail mail invites will be going out soon.  You should already have the email blast in your inbox.  Don't worry we'll keep reminding you.
We’re doing things a bit differently this year, so check out our event page for more details.  I’m really looking forward to this event a little R&R in OR, is just what the doctor ordered. 

The lineup of wineries pouring is going to be big and bold.  Stoller will be there of course, August Cellars, Walnut City Wine Works, White Rose Estate, Antica Terra, Twelve and J. Wrigley.  Plus more to come.  We're also trying to secure one of our local brewery's to come on out.  The Jake Blair Band, that everyone is raving about will be playing too!

JJB's calendar for the entire year is filling up.  Looking to the future, with the help of JJB’s assistant, Mari (you'll get to meet her at Salut, Prost, Cheers... For A Cure.)  It’s nice to actually start planning ahead, instead of playing every day by ear.  But it means being more organized.  We’ve settled on a few staple fundraiser/events for JJB: Rare Disease Day-Flash Mob in February, Walk in March, Street Fair in June and the Wine Event in July. 

Got a third job now, CEO of Phoenix Nest.  Getting our Biotech startup off the ground, is the catalyst for the need to start running.  I'm looking forward to announcing the launch of Phoenix Nest.   Any time now... Check out the logo that Jen designed on the sidebar!  Heading to Philly in a few days to work out the details for Phoenix Nest.  I'll be meeting with our famed project manager, Sean Ekins and our esteemed scientist Brian Bigger.  Heading to the Netherlands at the end of June, meeting with our European families and all of our scientists.  Days before that trip,  JJB will be honored at the LIFE-academy's graduation ceremony!

Mother's Day at the Bronx Botanical Garden.  I love Foxgloves

However, Peonies are my favorite.

Purple Rose in honor of MPS awareness day, May 15th.
Time to get to work.  Hope everyone had a fantastic Mothers Day and a special Happy Mothers Day to our Mom's Grandma Jan and Grandma Janet.
