Actually, wouldn’t the damage to a human friend have been just as bad, and possibly less easy to fix?

I guess John Deering, at least, works under a two- rather than three-week lead time

Cidu Bill on Apr 24th 2017

Have lead times been shortened over the years? Three weeks for a newspaper strip has always been axiomatic, no exceptions.

Unless Deering was referring to earlier incident and just got lucky?

Not sure whether this qualifies for the “Oy” tag, since I’ve seen it in person. A lot.

Walkathon 2017

Cidu Bill on Apr 20th 2017

marchofdimes.PNG The short version this time:

March for Babies, which I still call the March of Dimes Walkathon even though they officially changed the name years ago. (I’m still allowed to use the old name because my son and I have been doing this since 1993).

Since 2006, we’ve been raising money for the March of Dimes here at CIDU, and we’re on an impressive run: each year, we’ve raised more than the year before. Last year we hit a stunning $1011 (thank you all!), so $1012 will be a high bar.

The event takes place April 30, rain or shine, and unfortunately it’s been leaning more toward “rain” lately.

The donation links are both above, and in the left-hand sidebar.

**A*INS**D*U: Possibly an Easter-related CIDU, though I don’t think so

Perhaps it would help to know what word “**A*INS**D*U” represents, if indeed McEldowney had one in mind.

(I found one of those “cheating at crossword puzzles” sites, and came up empty)
