Ray Engel Cancer Fund

I have known Ray for 26 years, since we were in 6th grade. I worked with him for 14 years at Huron Valley Home Care Supply in Highland. Ray is one of the nicest people I have ever met in my life. He would go out of his way to help anyone out time and time again. He has had a bit of bad luck lately. He had testicular cancer a few years ago that came back recently. This time, a large mass grew in his abdomen pressing on his Aorta and kidneys. He suffered a heart attack and is currenty in the hospital and has been diagnosed with cancer. He is currently undergoing Chemotherapy treatment to combat this. Ray doesn't have any insurance and is going to need help with medical bills. To make things worse, his wife left him and abandoned their 2 kids. To make things worse, before she left, she sold all of Ray's belongings including his Ham Radio gear which he used to help the community with emergency communications and severe weather spotting. The radio gear alone was worth thousands of dollars. He has house and car payments, 2 kids and he will be out of work for sometime. Please, if you can spare something, anything, I am sure he will be more than grateful. If you would like to donte any radios or radio equipment, please message me privately and I will make arrangments with you. Most of you know him as Radio Ray Engel. His ham radio callsign is KC8SZT. Thanks in advance for your donations.

Joe And Mac - NES Review



I am really not into platformers but this one isn't too bad.  It reminds me a bit of Bonk's Adventure.  The point of the game is to clear each area and defeat a boss after each.  You start with a stone ax that you can throw which can be a bit tricky to jump and throw at the same time.  Jumping can also be a challenge with a double jump that can also be utilized.  Once you get the hang of it, it is pretty fun. The only thing I wish that the game had was something to collect, coins, etc.  Overall I give the game a 6 out of 10, a bit above average but not great.
