Innovation Running: 1st annual (they hope) run in Milan in favor of blood donations

Innovation Running: B2Blood. That makes me a bit squeamish, but the cause is good. Raising awareness and increasing participation in blood donations through today's short run, the first of--they hope--many to come, from about 8:50 A.M. to 11:30 A.M....More......

Good cause.

Will disrupt public and private transportation, though, so if you have to be somewhere at a particular time, forewarned is forearmed.

Want more info? You'll have to read Italian, but if you want more info about WHERE the run will go, scroll their page down, and click on the map:

They didn't advertise this very well. I only chanced to see the notices on the bus and tram stop poles, yesterday. Better late than never.

Sunday outing planned with the family? We should have some cloud cover, with temps more typical of the first days of autumn, but some hot Indian summer weather should pop up after next week's predicted downpours.

A short consolation before the long winter months.

Despair not! Usually the bad weather lasts just a couple of days, spelled by a few lovely fresh blue days with big white puffy clouds...just enough to lift the spirits, and arm them for the next few days of cold and rain, the latter necessary for the crops and replenishing the water supply.

Thanks for looking at my blog and for the compliments, and if you'd like to propose my blog to your readers that would be great, but at least at this time I still prefer to keep my blog free of such ties as you proposed. Thanks, anyway.
