"Dark is the new black, darling....."

It's Halloween and time to rumble for the technology group at my company.

Mr. Slapshot on the left is actually the manager of our continuity of operations program.

Here's the winner of our spirit award with the refs and myself.

This is a top view shot of my truly awesome zucchini race car built for me for this morning's race. On one side, it has my racing name -- Princess of Darkness -- and this blog entry's headline on the other.

Here I am racing against a great guy and colleage of eight years, Denis. Eventually he beat me in the stock class.

What is this silliness all about? It is actually the kickoff of the United Way Giving Campaign for the technology group here in Seattle.

Fred and Marianna are the referees and detail folks behind each year's race. This was the 15th such race, the end of an era for my company. We have $850 to turn over to be matched before being sent to United Way.

As I have said so many times before, you always get back more than you give, especially when you are having fun at the same time. 2009 is going to be a very tough year for so many in our region, especially the homeless, a special focus of the United Way program. We must each do what we can in our own way to make a difference.
