WFP - A Toast to Randy Pausch ......

Wine food pairing takes a time to announce the passing of Dr. Randy Pausch. Randy made national news last September when he delivered his famous "Last Lecture" to a packed audience at Carnegie Mellon University. Yes, indeed it was his last lecture, as Randy was dying of Pancreatic Cancer.

I have followed his inspirational journey with awe, laughter and, of course sadness ... my sister died of this same horrible cancer that knows no long term survivors. Randy did so much for the education and awareness of this disease and even spoke before congress, pleading for more research funds. Randy Pausch certainly is and was a hero .... may you rest in peace ....

I would like to propose a toast to all the friends and family that pancreatic cancer has left behind and to all the brave souls that have fought a brave fight and have succumbed .... CHEERS!

Hi,

Hope all is well. I'm Alisha from Wowzio, and I'm excited to tell you about our new widget platform that helps bloggers increase readership and create more engaged users.
Our widgets are absolutely free for personal use (and we don't insert ads on your blog either).
We have released a few widgets recently that I think you'll find useful so I wanted to reach out to you to ask for your feedback (feel free to also install any widgets on your blog, if you feel they are a fit for you).

Our Photo Widget for example, automatically creates a slideshow for you from all the photos you post on your blog.
Photos are a great way to get new (and regular) readers to dive deeper into your blog and read more of your content.
We also have other widgets which should help increase traffic to your blog(Live Activity & Feed Widget).
You can check out widgets customized for your blog here:

I'm sorry for leaving this message via a comment, it's not at all our intent to spam you ( which is why i'm leaving this comment on an older post ).
We'd love to hear your feedback about our widgets, and feel free to remove this comment! :)

Thanks,
