Wear Yellow
I finally received the yellow wrist bands that the Lance Armstrong Foundation is selling to raise $5 million for cancer research and wellness.

I ordered them online back in mid June and was getting frustrated since they were taking a while to show up. They are quite popular - and every quantity you can buy is back ordered. Nearly every rider who won a stage had one on - some cross team cameradierie if you ever saw it. Lots of celebrities - including Robin Williams who is apparently a good friend of Lance - wears one. They were even selling them for a Euro during the Tour. Which I found annoying since I didn't have mine and was constantly reminded of it daily.

Online, they cost a US buck a piece plus shipping, and they have the saying LiveStrong stamped deeply into them, which is one of Lance's mantra's and a cancer program at his foundation. I have ten bands, so I can give away a couple. If I misplace the first one I also will have a spare!

Aside from the obvious Lance Armstrong angle here, and raison d'etre to buy them, I just wanted to point out I don't have cancer, but I have been touched by the disease. Both my parents died after relatively brief but ravaging battles with cancer: my mom on Christmas Day 1998, and my dad on June 15th 2000 - which also happens to be my brother's birthday.

I wear yellow in the memory of Peter Henderson Wood and Yvonne Marion Wood.

Later, that same day, coming home from work I saw a silver 2004 Honda CR-V like mine. The plate? Carpe D.

Carpe Diem
