Hug-A-Rugger Donation

Well, it's taken awhile, but enough Hug-A-Rugger merchandise has finally been sold so that I can donate the money to USA Rugby. I first created the Adopt-A-Rugger and Hug-A-Rugger merchandise with the promise to donate all proceeds to USA Rugby on November 17, 2007, and its taken this long to sell enough to get a check from CafePress that I then donated to USA Rugby.

I made my donation designated to the Sr. Women's National Team. Mostly because I've been following Wendy at Your Scrumhalf Connection and am more aware of what's going on with the Women's team. But, if more of you buy some Hug-A-Rugger merchandise, I'll be able to spread the wealth and support other programs or just USA Rugby general fund.

So buy your T-shirt, infant bodysuit, thong (I really thought they would be a big seller), or other items and help support USA Rugby.

Wikio ranking

Apparently I'm ranked number 602 in sports blogs on Wikio (see the badge over there on the left). Don't know much about them, but there I am.

602? Who's ahead of me? Competitive tiddlywinks? Well, at least I'm on the list. Some list. Any list. I asked if I could be ranked in the business category too, since this blog is supposedly about Business Operations and Rugby, but they aren't able to rank me in more than one category yet. Where would I be ranked in business? Right after cost cutting via accounting for restroom paper products?

I'm still here

Just a quick note to let you know I'm still here. Just been very busy. Whether I'm actually accomplishing anything is another matter. I'm back to work on my next book. I set it aside for awhile while I was doing the webinar series, but I'm back on it. I'm tired of looking at it, so I need to finish. Moving into a new apartment and have some painting to do. I'm looking for a cheap, but good working condition, stacked washer/dryer for my lanai, so if you're in Honolulu and have one, please let me know. A love seat, large area rug, and floor lamp would help too.

Total Flanker has answered the Captaincy question with his usual wit. Check it out. And Wendy is raffling off some t-shirts, so put your name in the hat.

About three months to the Honolulu Marathon, and training is going pretty good. I need to do longer long runs (I'm doing 1 & 1/2 hours on Sundays, but need to bring that up a bit). My goal is twofold; finish in 4-1/2 hours and not be in severe pain.

I haven't heard anything about the Hawaii Harlequins Rugby Tournament that's scheduled for October. Is it still on?

Customer Service, probably the most overlooked, poorly executed part of Business Operations. I'll be ranting again soon.

Aloha for now.
