Next Sunday, October 12, 2014, is the 4th Annual Matt Collura 5K Run/Walk and post-race BBQ. In 2011 friends and family of Matt Collura organized this race to raise Matt's spirits and to help support his recovery after he suffered traumatic brain injury in a snowboarding accident in March of that year. All of the funds raised help to provide extra hours of physical therapy and to purchase equipment that helps Matt work towards his ultimate goal of running again. The race begins at 10:30 am at Thompson Park, 1701 Perrineville Road in Jamesburg. Check in starts at 8:30 am. To register, click here. Visit this website to learn more about Matt and donate to his fundraising campaign. For more information, contact mattcollura5k at gmail dot com.

National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands invites the public to play a part and contribute to the restoration of the Mapleton Preserve, the former home of Princeton Nurseries and a significant historical site in Central New Jersey.
FPNL's focus this year is mulching trees in the Arboretum, clearing autumn olive from the fields and collecting litter. Volunteers are asked to bring their own loppers, pruning shears, saws, rakes and shovels. Sturdy shoes, work gloves, long pants, long-sleeved shirts and hats are also recommended.

It's World Cat Day. You probably knew this already, right?
Meet my father's cat, Kitty. We're almost positive she likes us better than when the photo above was taken.
She spends a good deal of time guarding the deck from squirrels. We appreciate that.
She amuses us by refusing to give up the first bed we bought her when she was small. In fact, she prefers it to her newer, larger bed. Cozy is good . . . .
