Re: Facebook

Well, I made a little challenge to Rick yesterday on a different thread.   I was thinking that if we get 2500 Facebook fans by the middle of March (or whenever) then Rick would have to go get his legs waxed, makeup/hair done, etc. and have some pics put up here on the site or on Facebook or wherever. 

At first it was kind of a joke, but my mom (who was a hairdresser for 30+ years) just passed away and the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to do it.  It will be fun, it will help raise awareness and honor my mom in a fun, goofy way.  (which she would have loved)

When I emailed Stacie, she didn't get it at first but when she did she laughed and said "Alright."  So.  I guess we're on?

Well, considering a do a little "female impersonation" on the side, this does sound like fun... LOL! 

Anything we need to do to get our voices heard about this horrible disease sounds good to me.

Jeff!  That's awesome!  I volunteered to help make the arrangements, so any advice you could give would be appreciated.  And Rick still needs to accept my challenge. Maybe he could use some "encouragement." Lol.

Re: Facebook

Thanks Jeff, I woke up to your news today as when I went to bed there were 485! This is so exciting, a shot in the arm if you will, that I think we all needed. My daughter puts a new post on for me & herself daily and it has paid off in spades! I was hoping for CC.ORG to be at 500 yesterday and when it was 485 in the evening I was disappointed. Wow is all I can say and now the ball is rolling downhill! Watch out Rick!!!

Re: Facebook

Right now it is at 593.

I can track it and it looks like we're averaging about 104 a day and I figured we'd need to average about 90,  (so, eek!) and yesterday we had more than 130 join.  (our busiest day yet.)

However, as of right now, today's only had 53.  Has it slowed down permanently?  It always seems to pick up in the evening, so time will only tell.

Re: Facebook

It is so gonna happen!!  You are going to be so pretty, j/k you're a good sport!!    I need more salon services in Salt Lake City, though!!  wink if you know someone,  shoot me an email!!

Re: Facebook

Hi Rick!

Yep I sure do agree with Heather in that this will happen!! I just found my 2 little cousins and my youngest cousins boyfriend on facebook, and they have some friends. Lots of friends actually, over 1000 between the 3 of them! As soon as the okay my friend requests I will send them your link!!

Thank you so much Rick!!

Re: Facebook

Rick - What have you gotten yourself into????  I finally joined FB so anyone on the site feel free to reach out and just leave a message that you're with this site as I am still learning everyone's names.  Will be recommending the site to my growing list of friends, so better start thinking about what you're going to wear Rick!

Re: Facebook

Mark! 

If only it were up to me!  It seems like Heather has this whole thing already lined up.  She's given me the name/phone of my "stylist."  She's given me the address of where I need to get measured.   She's even given me the name of the company loaning me clothes "and accessories." (whatever that means.)

It seemed like a such a good idea at the time, right?  Now everyday I get more and more nervous.  I think a few stiff drinks may come in handy.

Anyway. 850!  More than a third of the way there with 20 more days to go.  YIKES.

Rick!

Blackbeard the pirate was a local around Morehead City where I work.  He used to wear red bows in his rather extensive beard.  Maybe you could try this and still manage to save the beard....lol

Re: Facebook

Only 15 more to go until we smash through the first 1000 members Rick.. Hopefully by the time I wake up tomorrow we will have sailed through 1000!!

Thanks so much!
