Gift ideas and a question

It's Saturday, I so should be sleeping in....the curse of being a "morning person."

Yesterday was hubby's birthday. It was low-key this year compared to the surprise bash last year. It was extremely nice. Just the two of us last night, and tonight we're meeting friends for dinner, drinks and a hockey game.

Christmas looms, and I just found a great solution for that person who has everything and REALLY doesn't need a present. A co-worker suggested this, and I love the idea! You can give a flock of chickens, geese or ducks to a family in an Third World country, or a water buffalo or goat in someone's name. Our boss is getting a flock of chickens. Here's the link to Heifer International

And now a question for all: Blogger is tempting us with their new "version." Has anyone tried this yet, and do you like it?

Thanks for the kind words about Heifer International. I joined Heifer as new media director last year and really appreciate it when someone blogs about us.

We have a new BlogRaising program that lets bloggers like you help us get the word out about Heifer and raise the money we need to do our work. To learn more, just go to www.heifer.org/onlinecommunityfundraising

I hope you are able to take part.

Again thanks for the good words.
