“Make your mistakes, take your chances, look silly, but keep on going. Don’t freeze up.”
Thomas Wolfe, You Can’t Go Home Again

It’s that time of year once again. Ever heard the phrase “You Can’t Go Home Again”? It may be true in some instances. However, you’d never hear it from anyone who has ever attended a Relay For Life benefit for the American Cancer Society. Volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 27 countries give of their time and effort because they believe it’s time to take action against cancer. If you can’t join me in Griffith Park on this Saturday May 20th, at 10:00am, check this link to find a gathering in your area. https://secure.acsevents.org

Whether you have been before or not, the people at Relay For Life always make you feel right at home. For the fourth year, I will be doing Cooking Demonstrations and Samples from 9am-11am. This year’s sales of HEROIC! will benefit the ACS and the new BBQ RESCUES! Foundation. That’s why I always look forward to going “Home Again”. See you there.
