On the Beach | Mashpee, MADecember 2001 – My sister Shareen on the beach during her first cancer. I consider this to be the best photo I’ve ever taken.

My sister Shareen had cancer 4 times and passed away in 2009. We spent many years at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and this year, I’ve committed to raising money for cancer research by riding in the 2013 Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC). On the first weekend in August, I will join 5,500 cyclists in the PMC ride, an annual bike-a-thon that raises money for research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. I am doing the full 190 mile ride from Sturbridge to Provincetown.

Each rider is required to raise $4300. Your donation is tax deductible and 100% will go to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Thanks for all your help and support over the years and for this cause that gives back to the institution that helped many times over the years.

Thanks again,

Jamil

Apple Coaster

Apple Coaster | In UseAbout a year ago, my Apple Airport Extreme died.  I brogut it to the Apple store and they said it wasn’t repairable.  What do do with this old piece of hardware?  I decided to take off the top cover and rubber bottom and glue them together.  I now have the perfect Apple coaster that matches my minimalistic Apple computer and accessories.  Also posted on Flickr and MacRumors.com.
