Raspberry Pi meetup

Today in Way Cool Beans around lunchtime there will be an informal meeting of people interested in learning about the Raspberry Pi, a $35 computer the size of a deck of cards.

Pardon the short notice, but this will be a weekly event, so do get in touch if you think this may be of interest.

Dwaine stopped by…

Dwain Gipe with a picture of the Pajama Factory

Dwaine Gipe is a well-known area photographer who is also a regular around the Pajama Factory. He stopped by the other day with a wonderful print of the Pajama Factory, taken from a neighboring hilltop. It’s in the visitor book at Way Cool Beans for you to see, along with his contact information, if you’d like a copy. Thanks, Dwaine!

Tommy Needs New Wheels

Tommy Grieco is one of our nicest tenants, a very talented artist and good friend.

He’s started a GoFundMe page to help pay for a new wheelchair, so we’re happy to share and hope you’ll consider helping him out!

Tommy Grieco

On May 10, 2003 Tommy Grieco was in a motorcycle accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down. He spent 4 weeks in the hospital, and 5 weeks in rehabilitation to learn how to adjust to his new life situation. He went from having a relatively normal American life, to having it turned upside down. His future was scary and unclear.

Update 6/27/16 – 11:45am

We have had a tremendous, overwhelming, unbelievable, heart-warming and most of all, generous outpouring of support for Tommy’s wheelchair campaign.

Thank You All.

Let’s keep this going!

Update #2 $5,950 raised!

Thank you all that donated to this site. Your generosity shows no bounds and I am forever grateful. In a few weeks or a little more from Spain I will receive my new manual wheelchair “the beast”. The rest of the donations will fix/replace my ramp at home. I’m still in shock from all the support of my friends and those who are total strangers. This is why and what a “go fund me” site is used and needed for not for frivolous items or trips to benefit no one in need. Plus, a special thanks to my friend, Shana for helping and getting things set up so quickly. Thank you so much to everyone. You made a grown man believe that there is still good in humanity. I will have pictures up on my Facebook with my new chair”the beast” whenever she arrives. God bless you all. I will never be able to say it enough, but Thank You.
