    This Saturday, the 6th., is the Classic Car Toys for Tots Car Cruise. It will leave Northpark Mall promptly at 6:30, cruise downtown, and return to Northpark. Bring an unwrapped toy, along with a $2.00 donation for the cruise and entertainment. Monetary donations to Toys for Tots will also be accepted. Dave Palmer from 3D Sound will be providing the music and announcing.
    The following day will be the ABATE motorcycle Toys for Tots Motorcycle Cruise. If you have to wait in traffic either Saturday night or Sunday, please be patient. Thousands of toys and thousands of dollars will be raised from these two cruises in two days.

    Thatnks for the reminder on that Mr. Gilmour. I was going to include it in a post towards the end of the week. We may even attend this one as spectators. Both events do raise a lot of toys and monies for the charity, and Dave’s usually good at playing all the good music that keeps things hopping.

    Agiplipse and ModyAdusy,
    I don’t have Windows 7 or Windows XP so I couldn’t be of much help. There are places online that offer tech advice.
