There's been plenty of research indicating that having pets is good for your health. I never really noticed any particular benefits to having cats, though that may have had more to do with my cats. They've been fairly indifferent to my presence and we've shared a live-and-let-live...

    That's great, Nielk! Hope you've all voted today. If we set our minds to it we can do this - I know it!

    Marly has finally appeared on the leaderboard: http://www.jewishcommunityheroes.org/nominees/leaderboard/ in 13th position.

    I don't think this is going to be as easy as I thought. We need as many people as possible ideally voting every day and ideally not too much longer than 24 hours since their last vote.

    Marly needs 123 votes to get to 12th place, and 35 more for the 11th place.
    Let's keep voting!:victory:

    We can really do this if we set our minds to make Marly a winner. Let's do something positive with our energy!

    Sometime yesterday, maybe 16 (??) hours ago, there was a gap of 170 votes to 12th place, so the gap is gradually narrowing.

    Don't forget lots of people started long before Marly - the contest started on Sept 7th (I think it was) i.e. they got a headstart.

    I see a total of 4,078 registered members on this forum. Even if only half are active, we should be able to get 2,000 votes a day just from this forum.

    Past experience suggests that would be rather optimistic. But I've followed your lead and changed my signature. Others can too - just go into the "Notifications" section (top right of screen) and click "edit signature".

    The gap is 210. But that person will of course get votes, so we need to get 211 more than them. But there is also the chance people lower down could make a charge so nothing should be taken for granted.

    Unfortunately that is not correct. But the gap to 11th is only now 105.

    A little white lie won't hurt to get people going... LOL;)

    What if each of us who are voting would send a private e-mail to 5 members of this forum?
    I think that if we let them know that we are 200 votes short, we will get more votes.

    I am voting daily as an expression of support to a fellow ME advocate.

    fwiw, I do just want to express, that I wish that PANDORA and the coaltion4mecfs took a harder line against CDC and CBT/GET. I am uncomfortable with Dr. Klimas' frequent use of the term "chronic fatigue" and pushing of exercise in ME. It may have some very limited utility, but the dangers of emphaisizing exercise in ME are too great, imo.
