Hey J,

Hey J,

Can you please copy and paste the links fro the top of the first page into your post on top of this page? That way folks who just want to vote can find it quicker.

That would be very helpful!

Have we hit 2,000?

I need some SLEEP!

I sent out this link to our local support group and posted on my Facebook page.

Someone told me the site was jammed and it took her a while to get her vote through!

What a fabulous idea, Tincup and a great effort by Paul, Robin and all!!!

HOLY COW! Or shall I saw HOLY GIRAFFE?

Lucky 7th place!

Looks like we have a lot of promoters, a grand pit crew and now a cheerleading section that is headed by a cute frog with a big grin!

[lol]

That is fantastic!

Only 400 more votes till we move up another position! Then we would be in 6th place!!!

To get the premium spot on the front page (5th place) we need at least another 800 votes!

Time to call in the non-Lyme affected people you know and make them aware!

Hey J, good for you!

After all, I think most of us are quite Lyme literate and won't have a problem knowing NEXT time to "Get it Right- Treat the Bite!"

Way to go Big Bird! Thanks for keeping a check on it.

And 4Seasons... that is incredible news! Thanks so much!!!

Vote count NOW is ... 2,535

Just a thought...

Do you think we could possibly make it to 3rd place?

I know that is asking a lot, but what do you think?

How about that! I took a supper break and came back to find we are in 6th place!!!

And our car is so cool that even CALDA did a write up on our race car!

http://www.lymedisease.org/news/lyme_disease_views/toyotasponsifier.html

Thanks to all of you and CALDA for providing the fuel for our engines..... vrrrrrrrrooooooommmmmmm

Good job everyone!

And so you say you want to be in 1st place? Goodness, what lofty expectations! But we CAN try!

Need to reach out to non-Lyme groups and folks. Go for it! Be inventive, be creative!

I just sent this out as a reminder and update.

[Big Grin]


Vote here- http://www.sponsafier.com/share/46869

UPDATE- The Lyme Awareness Race Car was dedicated to Dr. Jones and his wonderful staff for all of their work with the children, and to celebrate Dr. Jones birthday on March 14, 2011.

The website dedicated to him- where the Race Car information is located- has had over 1,000 new viewers in the past 5 days. This will hopefully help his situation.

Thanks to your efforts, in the past 24 hours we've added about 1,000 more votes to our previous total.

In 24 hours we raced up from a respectable 9th place to an incredible 6th place!

In the process we blew the doors off the state police car, the 911 dispatchers car and several others- we left them in our dust! (tee hee hee hee)

We need about 400 votes to move up to 5th place and be featured on the front page on the website! There are over 30,000 cars entered in the contest at this time.

The race car website gets approximately 300,000 hits per day, or about 1.2 million views every 4 days. (This is free advertising for Lyme Disease Awareness.)

We have about one week to get to the #1 spot, and then we can only hope no one will race up behind us after our voting period ends and pass us.

We need to pass everyone like they were standing still and establish a good lead if we want to get to and stay in the #1 spot.

If we continue to get 1,000 votes per day (or more) for the last week of voting, as it stands now we will be in 1st place!!! (Then comes the voting by the judges to determine the final Top 10 cars.)

So please keep voting and spreading the word to all your Lyme and non-Lyme friends!

Got kids? If so, put them to work sharing the Lyme Awareness Race Car information to help us with our efforts. As one person commented...

"This has got to be written up as the greatest collective Lyme activist activity in awhile..."

Thanks to all of the support groups and people nationwide who are sharing the Racing Lyme Awareness information on their websites, face book and twitters.

Happy Racing Lyme Disease Awareness! Vrrrrrrrooooooommmmm!

I was able to get back into my account and saw, for the first time, a ranking.

We've made it to the highest ranking- it is called DRIVER!

We've also had 3,900 views (where someone actually clicked on the car to see it).

Since we have less votes than that, it indicates many others passing through took time to look closely at our car.

It says the car was "shared" 2,400 times!

[Big Grin]

But... we haven't had any votes in a while. Where's the pit crew?

I hope it picks up in the morning!

This is awesome I voted and posted it on my FB page and sent a msg to as many people I could send it to on FB. I will send more when I can, it sucks they only let you send so many msg. I will keep posting, voting, and sending msg. We need to get the word out. With us all standing together fighting together, we will prevail then doctors won't have the option not to listen.

Way to go, racing crew & friends!

Its great to see a whole committed crew in place- you guys are AWESOME!

I've passed along the voting info to lots of folks in lots of places, and I know many of them are voting, but this year's effort belongs to those of you who have already done such a whiz bang job.

(BTW, the racing site is sure better organized this year!!)

Awesome - over 3700 now! What is the url for the picture showing the five top cars?

I agree - couldn't ask for a better crew!! Paul fixes the car as needed! Elaine even cleans up!

TnFlower, the site needs night crew too! Last year, every time I posted, so did Bill+1 - if anyone knows where he went, bring him back here!

You know, if they go ahead and make a Nascar car for us because of this achievement, hm about who gets to ride around the track in it - TC, Dr J and a couple of his kids????

Robin, Top 5 cars are located at

Top Five Cars

The car looks good in number 5 spot but it would look better in # 4.

I sent my reminder to vote emails to friends and family.

Good job Paul, the votes should start rolling in again with your reminder.

4,000 BIG ONES!

You all are doing fantastic! So glad you are sending and voting!

Hey needhelp! Thanks for jumping in the pits with these guys and putting the petal to the metal!

Glad you are still with us Dilly!

PaulMall, I love the way the pics are posted here. Cool... or as they say in racing...

AWESOME!

[Big Grin]

J, Kam and imitchy- thanks for keeping it up and pushing it all over!

It is a LONG way to get in 4th place, but we got spoiled passing others by like they were standing still.

Now we have to run up the RPM's and keep trucking along.

We'll get there with YOUR help!

Yes, J... we need some fun now and then, don't we. And it is an easy, free and good way to get "Lyme" in the faces of so many.

BUT, it is only possible with everyone's help!! You are the ones making it happen.

And TuTu... if you are trying out to be the first official NASCAR cheerleader, you've got my vote!

[lol]

Oh, the count is now 4,106 votes!

Wooooooooooooo hoooooooooooooo!

About 1,300 more and we move up a notch, to 4th place!

BUT, I want at least a third place. It would look nice (color wise) on the front page!

Yes, I just said that.

And I am the race car designer? GEEZE! Could we have had anyone LESS experienced doing this?

HA!

[lol]

And NOTE- The car, Zac Attack is gaining speed fast, and has 5 days left.

A present count of 4165, and some more Lyme radio for the climb to 4th place:

(Boys at the Beach)
Round, round, get around
We get around, yeah.

(Quick Mick...)
Come on, baby, drive our car!
Come on, baby, drive our car!
Try to set the track on fire!
Try to set the track on fire!

(Channeling Janis)
Oh, lord, won't you vote for a Lyme Nascar race car?
My friends all have interest, we must take it far.

(Don McLean at the wheel)
Fly, fly, don't miss Lymerica's high!
Drive our Lyme car all the time far
With the voting so high!
And we good old pit crew thinking frisky and why:
Singin' this'll be the way that we fly!

(Proud/Merry)
It's a good job, sittin' pretty,
Votin' for the car every night and day
And we might have lost some minutes of sleepin'
Clickin' all the way, we crew have been.

Big Count keeps on growing,
Proud Lymies keep on going.
Drivin', drivin', drivin' on the Nas track.

You won't believe this!

I just got a note from the IDSA Guideline authors. They said they LOVE our race car and vote for it EVERY DAY!

If that didn't make you laugh out loud... go change another tire!

[lol]

Count now- 4,726 votes!

Ok just posted it on my FB page - hopefully that will draw more attention so not just lymies will vote!

In my culture "4" is not a good number - it sounds like the word "death" in Japanese.

Therefore, we have no other option than to be in either 3, 2, 1st place.

I'm rolling J... HA!

Yes, penguin... I agree. Maybe we can hit 4th place by morning and move to 3rd by night time? That's asking a lot though.

But, when you hear this news things might change.

Zac Attack is biting at our bumpers. We need more votes and to pick up the pace or we will be eating their dust!

Tutu, LOVE your pictures! They have me laughing out loud at every one!

KAM, what a fantastic idea posting it on NASCAR pages! I'll get it posted wherever else I can; got it posted on both my FB pages; Paul posted it on LymeFriends and he is the most RELENTLESS marketer of any and all things Lyme you will ever want to come across. Seriously if you ever want to get the word out about anything, Paul's your man. For a dude who's only been in the Lyme game for seven months, you'd think he'd been around the block for years.

He makes people stand up and take notice. With Tincup and Paul together, and a dash of the rest of us, the seas may part. Seriously.

Now roll on, baby! This car's a cruisin' for sure!

Ha- I tricked the system - voted from my work laptop, personal laptop, and also voted from my smart phone. I can vote 3 x a day!

If only I could be out at bars and such I would hijack everyone's smart phones and just vote away.

I've have put requests to over 200 folks, asking them to vote, and many are doing just that.

is it just me, or are we way ahead of where we were last year at this point in the voting?!

way to go, everyone!

Oh Lymetoo, you just made me cross eyed, lol!!!

Wow, that Robin 123, she sure does get around! She's got a great post rocking over at LymeFriends where she and Cobweb are going at it, being all witty and stuff, with thier wit and humor getting everyone to vote, vote, vote!!!

I just sent out a BROADCAST MESSAGE to our 1,929 members asking them to vote and telling them I'm going to bug them every day with a message to vote.

We are less than 200 votes away from 4th place!

What a Pit Crew... so special you are!

Drum roll please...

I was told that shortly after 11 PM we had 5,000 votes!

Do you think we can move up to 4th place by 12 noon Saturday?

I hope so!! This is going VERY well.

Thanks all for racing Lyme Disease Awareness.

TC, one of your projects: preparing a victory speech, when the top we breach -

Dilly, we're waaaaaaay ahead this year, thx to a very early start by lots of us - and I think we should all keep clicking right through March 25 - see how high we can get -

Thx Tracy9, isn't it fun at all the sites?!

Jac, watch Zac, report back -

Kam, mach 1 - I like the sound of it -

Penguingirl - good point - don't think anyone's been asking how much equipment each of us has access to -

Lymetoo - getting ready with all her jumping
when we finally accomplish all our bumping...

Has anyone been twittering?

Elaine - thx for the url - we'll be there, doing weller than well -

And Paul, he don't have time to be here or at the mall, since he's probably working on the next thousand haul...

TNFlower, nothing like song power!
Rockin' Robin, tweet, tweet, tweet! --->
Talkin' Robin: vote, vote, vote!!

Yo Bird brain...

It's about time you showed up! HA!

No songs tonight? I have to get some of the others out of my brain, so could use one!

[lol]

BTW- I found Pall Mall. He's been busy!

Seems he made his own Lyme disease race car, got it approved and is counting his votes!

Maybe he'll come back and share the link with us?

Our total now is 5,164. Getting closer to 4th place!!!

Keep on voting!

With your efforts and spreading the word, the traffic to Dr. Jones site has increased quite a bit!

Over 1,400 people visited just since the car was dedicated to him (this past week).

HOPEFULLY that will help both him and the kids, and get them the attention and help they deserve!!!

NOW can I go to bed?

'Cept for Zac, but keep on voting, here we come! (and then some!)

As of right now we have 5298 and Zac attack has 2377, so they need 2921 to catch up (with 4 days remaining). We need 111 to tie and 112 to pass with the number 4 spot! WE CAN DO THIS!!!

ROLL ON DUDES!

PS Paul said he did his as a back up so any new comers wouldn't harasses us! [Smile]
