OK - So I Cheated...
Three Years Old, One Thousandth Post, Today!
Last week I spotted a mad person celebrating her blog's second birthday. It caused me to remember that my own blog was born in May so I went to check out my stats and find the exact date of its birth. It was only then that I realised that not only were there just four days until my blog's third birthday but that in four posts time Becks & Posh would hit its 1000th post. So, because I was a little too busy to
In May 2004, the number of people who read my blog could be counted on one
I really can't imagine what my life might or would have been like without all of this. As one of my oldest friends, Penny, said to me last night. "You would probably be a totally different person today, if you'd never started your blog". (Did she mean I might have stayed thin?) Either way, she's right. Que sera, sera. This is the way it is now. Three years that have changed a lifetime and I'm not complaining. Thanks to every one of you out there who has joined me on this roller coaster ride.

Dining Out for Life: Interim Results:
A note from the organisers: We are well on our way to exceeding this year's goal for our 6th Annual Dining Out for Life event. The raffle alone raised $63,000! That's over $18,000 more than last year. That along with the sponsorship/matching grant total of $53,500 brings us to just over $116,500. And that's before any of the restaurants have been factored in. We will be spending the next few weeks inputing all of the raffle and restaurant data information we have received. Due to the overwhelming generosity, it will take a few weeks to enter all the donations from the event. The winning raffle tickets will be drawn once that is completed and the list of the winners will be announced. We are shooting for the last week of May as our announcement date, if things change, we will keep you posted.
Sam Breach, Amanda Berne, and Nikki Wong: Acme Chop House $1,290 in donations plus $770 in online donation for a total of $2060.00
Thanks so much every one who helped us raise funds!
