Boobie-Thon '10 HNT

It's that time of year again for the 9th Annual Blogger Boobie-Thon! It starts up this Friday, and runs for seven days. For those who have never experienced it, it's a fundraiser to raise money for breast cancer research. Bloggers from all over the globe send in photos of their boobies (covered and uncovered) to help raise money for Breast Cancer Research. They have raised over $64,000 in the past 8 years.

As I've mentioned in previous years, my family hasn't had any history of breast cancer. Doesn't mean that it couldn't happen (we don't have a history of diabetes, either, and look what happened!). Almost everyone knows someone who's been affected by breast cancer. It's not a good thing. While millions of dollars have been raised and spent on cancer research, and there is some progress being made, there's still a long way to go. While raising a few thousand dollars may seem like a drop in a very large bucket, one must remember that the Great Flood started with a few raindrops. And if you don't believe in the Great Flood, try.....um....the last few snowflakes that fall to trigger an avalanche. Or the last straw that broke the camel's back. Whatever. You get the idea. Every little bit helps!

Over the years, many HNTers have contributed many boobie pics for Boobie-Thon. Including a few of the guys. Yeah, guys are encouraged to submit. Guys can get breast cancer too, ya know! Submissions are taken through next Thursday night, so I encourage you to send in a picture or two (a link to instructions can be found on the Boobie-Thon page). I opted to send in a picture of not just mine, but of one of my favorite sets of boobies. So be sure to look for boobs and moobs over there!


Through the lens of my camera

I can learn to love my body.

This is the my choice of therapy.

This week's Mystery Guest has been enjoying her photo therapy for a couple of years. You can find her Flickr set when she's revealed Thursday afternoon.
this week's MG is Amber from over at Mommy Mania! Stop by and see what she's doing in the kitchen. And leave her some lovin'!

Another fine batch of pictures submitted this week for "...the Other HNT". Be sure you stop by to check out your fellow HNTers! And don't forget to leave some comments...they'd sure appreciate it! As usual...NSFW.

As part of my overall template upgrading, I've also worked on my separate HNT site. I'm placing all my HNTs in one spot. I'm about a third of the way through over five years. It's been really interesting to go back and actually look at some of these. In some cases, all I can think is, what was I thinking??? If you're up for some laughs, go take a look over there...
The latest page of the OsShirt site should be up this weekend. It's the last and most recent location in Florida. Hippies and cops will be involved with this one!

I might have to check out the boobie-thon. My mum had Breast Cancer in each breast. She has been clear for over 8 years now. Which is fantastic! Love your pic, it's fun and awesome. MG is gorgeous.

Boobs, boobs, boobs. I love them too! And that goes for the two sets in your great pic.

Sadly, not only has breast cancer touched my family but also close friends. Gladly, they are all clear and well.

Once again, the MG is delish...

boneman said...

dang!
Like to think I'de never get caught up!
And then, when I went to the wrong site (which I do almost every week except the last two...) the date said 2011.
"Have I fallen into a time warp?" I asked myself.

("have I fallen into a time warp")

Daylight savings time gone whak-o.

well,
http://artlessonsbyberry.blogspot.com/

might just be up...
hard telling. If it really IS 2011, I probably have gray hair, by now.
And here's hoping I'm done singing that song....

d=))

boneman said...

ps, as an official prehistoric computer contraption machine user, I have no idea how to pick up a boobie.

3...2...1...
the badges, that is.
I left clicked on it, but it stares back at me like..
what'cha want?

on the one hand, I donated mine (with one heck of a surprise...) (maybe) and on the other hand, I have a wart.
no...no wart.
so, send info, eh?
I don't get tons of traffic, but, I do get some.

Ms Scarlett said...

Looking good there!! And lovely MG... such a pretty picture...

I'm still not up, but making the rounds!
