I donated a kidney to someone. I don’t know whom. Everyone asks how the hell I decided to do such a risky thing for a stranger. A few years ago, one of my friends who moved to the west coast had a friend back east looking for a kidney donor. Without much hesitation, I volunteered to at least get checked to see whether I would be a match. It didn’t end up that I was contacted for consideration, but after that I got to thinking… I happened to hear this one mother’s request for someone to help save her dying son, but thousands of people need kidneys for their failing health. There are thousands of other cries I just never encounter; if I was willing to donate for one stranger, why not another? Years passed and I continued to think about donating. Learn a lot about my body and kidneys, after the jump!

For 2017, I did a new thing for every letter of the alphabet. It was a close call on some of them but it allowed me to call upon old friends for new adventures. (Yeah, it's that cheese ball.) Obviously, it was all organized on a spreadsheet and it was infinitely more enjoyable than my #stephstewart year. What story does the alphabet tell?

The annual goals for 2016 were #StephStewart and it was the hardest thing I've ever done. Now that I have some distance from it, let me tell you about the 100 Martha Stewart themed things that I did for a year. How far down the rabbit hole did I go?

Once again, the Lunicorns knocked it out of the park for Gishwhes. For all of you who helped us, laughed at us, lent us stuff, or were just wondering what the hell we were talking about for the last week... Here ya go! Jump into our trash boat!

This 4th of July weekend had breathtakingly spectacular weather of candy blue skies, puffy white clouds, a dry, cool wind, and buckets of sunshine. There was no better way to celebrate than with some A+ Americana in the form of The Ghost of Paul Revere and The Avett Brothers at a lovely outdoor venue on the Fore River in Portland, Maine. The environment was perfect and the crowd was so polite.

I'll tell you mine, after the jump.
