PB has not done so well in her blogging for cancer. But, it is never too late to educate her Nuts.
Check out this site, Friends of Heroes to learn more. Also check out this site to learn how you can participate and possibly win a gift.

Leukemia is simply a blood cancer which forms in the bone marrow. When PB was just a little cowpea her symptoms consisted of fatigue, bruising, and other flu-like symptoms. Leukemia occurs when there are an abundant number of white blood cells (leukocytes). These fighter cells then deplete the necessary creation of Red Blood Cells. So, Nuts, too much of a good thing can be dangerous. There are many forms of Leukemia and some are more common than others. PB was affected by Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). PB recalls a story of another cowpea who was diagnosed with ALL when PB was. She inquisitively asked her Momma Nut, "Mommy, why do I have laundry detergent in my blood?" PB's friend was around 6 years of age when she asked this. This is the reality of cancer Nuts. It strikes whomever it wants to and knows no boundaries.

Nuts, pull a carver and check out how you can learn more about Leukemia by checking out the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. PB hopes to use Team in Training to train for a marathon (just as soon as she is healthy enough to start running consistently enough and begin strength training again). This is just one way she is going to give back to an agency which helped save PB's life. See how you Nuts can be smooth and creamy in other Nut's lives.

What do PB and Forest Gump have in common? Well, they were a'runnin'. Yes, Nuts you heard correctly PB is back to running. Tonight on her drive home, PB thought it was time to at least try and climb down the other side of the mountain. She intended to start slow beginning at week 1 of her 10 week run/walk program which includes alternating 4 mins of walking and 2 mins of running for 30 mins. So at the 16th minute PB was running and something in her brain clicked (maybe the power of the Dixie Chicks she was listening to?) and she just kept running for the remainder of the 14 minutes! She feels great! ahhhhhhhhh PB is so happy to be back in the saddle again. Nuts, moral is no matter how chuncky things seem there is usually is some creamy adventure waiting on the other side!

PSA: Terror Alert! The Peanut Gang Strikes Again!

Last week, PB and Shady broke the news of Shady's crunchy encounter with a salty nut who verbally a-salted her on the 7 Train. At the time, we were not sure if this was a rogue nut acting alone, or part of the Peanut Gang from Yankee Stadium.

FYI: The Peanut Gang came about due to the social unrest in the peanut community during the Cracker Jacks vs. Crunch N' Munch controversy at Yankee Stadium a few years ago, when upper management wanted to replace Cracker Jacks with Crunch N' Munch. This chunky change included modifying the famous lines from Take Me Out to the Ballgame, from Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack, I don't care if I never get back to Buy me some peanuts and Crunch N' Munch, if my team loses I will hurl my lunch. Thankfully, due to fan outcry (the only creamy thing that Yankee fans have ever done), the change was not implemented, however the damage was done. Millions of American peanut families had undergone the strain of having their livelihoods threatened by outsourced Crunch N Munch nuts, thus creating a stressful and unstable environment for the younger peanut generation, who began forming peanut gangs.

Until this weekend, law enforcement believed that the Peanut Gang had limited its a-salts to New York City. Unfortunately, security cameras on an interstate train traveling from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts caught our own PB Smooth being a-salted by a member of the Peanut Gang who was apparently also on his way to Fenway to spread mayhem.

Study these pictures carefully, as Peanut Gang members seem to use a similar M.O.

Notice how the gang member is sidling up to PB Smooth while she's distracted, a similar technique used on Lil Shady.

PB Smooth feels violated when this salty gang member asks her, Do you want to lick my nuts?

Horrifying, we know. Thankfully, PB Smooth has fully recovered from her trauma.

In order to prevent social unrest in our pods, as well as future attacks, PB and Shady will now share with our cowpeas what we have learned thus far;

1) There are some rotten nuts in the world, even though the majority are good.
2) Replacing Cracker Jacks with Crunch N' Munch at the ballpark will always be a bad idea.
3) The lyrics to Take me Out to The Ballgame should not be messed with.
4) Yankee fans have done at least one creamy thing... but, it's only one.
5) ALWAYS STAY ALERT! The Peanut Gang is now an interstate operation!
