Remember how I said I was going to post every Friday? Aren't I awesome? I promise to do better. It's hard when I don't have internet at my apartment. I've been pirating a neighbors wireless signal (shh...don't tell) but that is unreliable. Basically I'm just trying to make excuses. Anyway, I promise to do better. Can you find it in your heart to forgive me?

I've been listening to The Village soundtrack in my car. It's pretty much the first album I pull out every year when autumn hits. Kills me every time. I love that piece of music more than I can express. I consider it a masterpiece. The movie...not so much. In fact, perhaps some might think the soundtrack could be faulted for so thoroughly outshining the movie.

Anyway, I am currently writing a song. I hope it goes well.

And the winner is...

The Johnsons in Mesa, AZ with a bid of $500 for the concert, plus airfare and lodging. Wow. And a bid of $100 for The Package. That is extraordinarily generous. Thank you so much.

And because I felt sorry for our bidder, Michael, for missing the midnight deadline. I will create a 2nd Place Package that includes just the CDs for a matching bid of $100. The more money for this wonderful family's recovery, the better, right?

To get your items/coordinate the concert, click on the Donate to Nie button at the bottom of this email, make your payment safely and securely via PayPal, and then email me your receipt along with your name, address, and phone number. I will then contact you with the particulars.

Thanks to all bidders for raising the stakes. God bless you.
