My dogs have adopted a kitten.
So far, we are calling her Sweetie Pie as she is very much one. Meara does not like her and wants nothing to do with her. If anyone is interested in adopting her, I would love for her to go to a good home. As you can see, she gets along with dogs:-)
My friend Tini is still podcasting. Check her out here or on iTunes!
This week I helped my mom give a little talk about Finland to a local nursing home. I would have never guessed 4 years ago that I would be a local expert on Finland!
I stopped-by a Salvation Army center this week to drop-off a bag full of toiletries that we found around the house. Most of them were the little travel sized ones from various hotels that my mom has stayed at over the past few years. These are good for folks that are coming to a shelter. Anyway, I was there at lunch time and was amazed at the number of people coming in for a hot meal. And most of these folks were elderly. It’s almost time for the Salvation Army bell-ringers to start their work. Don’t just pass these folks by while you are out doing your Christmas shopping. If you have enough money to buy presents, you can dump at least a little change in their kettles. Really, I got to see first hand what this money is going to. I think that everyone should. So get in the Christmas spirit and help someone down on their luck. It is only by the grace of God that we are not there ourselves…
