CATCH it! Today!

Today I want to take a few moments of your time to plug a most excellent program run by Laurie Bibo through the Madison Senior Center. It's called CATCH Healthy Habits and it trains volunteers aged 50+ working with children in grades K-5 to learn about the benefits and fun of good nutrition and exercise.

(In the spirit of full disclosure I must tell you that Laurie is the most awesome person in the world and has been kind enough to be my lovely wife for near 35 years. Yes, I'm biased but you really should check this program out.)

Watch this news report from NBC15 in Madison, WI, featuring (yes, you probably guessed) Laurie Bibo!

Please help spread the word about this great, awesomely fantastical program. (Hey, I'm a writer. I can use lots of big words.) Tell your family, tell your friends, post it, tweet it, put it on Facebook, or better yet, volunteer yourself. You'll love it.

PS Here's the link to the video so you can share it too!
