Kilted to Kick Cancer is well under way and we're making progress. Ambulance Driver posted fundraising results earlier and apparently you've been donating to the cause!

After reading the results I realized that I hadn't set myself up to collect donations for LiveStrong, however that has been fixed. (See below)

As of right now I am still kilt-less, however I'm looking to remedy that situation soon. Other bloggers have thrown down some interesting challenges. if JayG comes out on top he's going to wear a skirt. if Ambulance Driver finishes first he's going to post pics of himself in full drag. Stingray is offering to live blog is own prostate exam.

I'm going to have to ramp things up here kids. What self-depreciating or moderately humiliating act can I commit to if I come out on top. I'm looking for ideas here folks.

Suggestions are welcome and in the mean time  you kids need to make with the clicky and donate!

Prostate Cancer Foundation -

When my kilt comes in, there will be pics. In the mean time visit the Kilted to Kick Cancer website  for more information.

QOTD - Borepatch

Supplied to us via BorePatch commenting on this ass hattery.

Can everyone who ever said that a village in Texas was missing its idiot shut up and sit down in the back of the room?  Grown ups are talking. -Bore Patch

Seriously, Barry O? Are you fucking kidding me?

Ten years ago my public safety career was in it's infancy. The events that transpired on this day hardened my resolve to dedicate my life to what I now do. Every day that I go to work I do so knowing that there is a chance that something horrific that could happen, yet I go and I do it anyway. While we cannot focus on the dangers of our job, we must never forget what could happen to us and what has happened to others.

Always remember the sacrifice that our brothers & sisters in EMS, law enforcement and the fire service made that day. Never forget that they were the ones who blindly went running into battle that day, despite the fear that they must have felt. They did so not because it was their job, but because they knew it had to be done.

If you ask me who I admire, I will tell you that it is my colleagues in public safety. I consider myself blessed that every day I go in to work, for I walk amongst giants.
