Have you ever seen 16 gallons of blood? Me neither, although I can visualize 16 plastic milk jugs filled with the dark red liquid. Imagine my surprise when the Red Cross informed me that with my last donation, I had reached 16 gallons. That's a lot of blood! No wonder I'm tired. Anyway, congratulations are in order so here is what I want - if you can, go donate a pint a blood. All of you can reach in a day what it took me almost 30 years to do. Take a friend. Think of it as tithing to the universe.
