Now that's romantic:
When Valerie Myers opened her Valentine’s card this morning she could have been forgiven for feeling a slight sense of déjà vu.

For 31 years her husband Ken has sent her the very same card. But to stop their romance going stale, he has added a new – and very cryptic – message each time.

The father of five designed the large padded card himself in the Seventies while working as a freelance card designer.

He first sent it to Valerie in 1979 – five years after they wed – with the coded inscription ‘Aisle ooh view’ – meaning ‘I love you’.

See? I told you Craig Ferguson was the best of the late night talk hosts.

Want to know that your donated dollars are going to the most effective organization possible? Add the Charity Navigator to your favorites.

(And read the descriptions carefully. You've got to wonder about the altruism of an agency that would post the following: "The Lambi Fund never dictates to a community organization what should be done; through discussion and reflection, the peasants decide what is best for their community and present the project to the Lambi Fund for support." In this day and age there's an agency that refers to people as peasants???)

Which did I choose? Local, but highly-rated Bright Hope International. Based on what I saw at their site, I'll be adding them to my annual giving list.

Look! A new Simon's Cat video:

The origin's of Simon's Cat?

Yeah. I bought myself a little Valentine gift after seeing that.

From the British scientist who started it all:
  • Data for vital 'hockey stick graph' has gone missing
  • There has been no global warming since 1995
  • Warming periods have happened before - but NOT due to man-made changes
Now let's wait and see how long it takes for Big Media here in the States to pick up on this.

I hope to be wrong, but our MSM will never pick up the climate gate since they agree with global warming and are in the bag with O! I mean their still in denial that their was a march in DC last Sept!

Call me cynical - but we've already given tons of money to Haiti without any improvement! I give to local charities in the US now. Hopefully less corrupt. I see my clothes and food go to homeless kids at our local school. They are right there in front of me and thanking me. I know that people say that we are the richest country - not true according to CATO, but in these hard times, I'll be keeping it local!

Miss you,

I preface my comment by acknowledging that I am crotchety. Crotchety Plus, in fact.

One of my hot buttons is administrative costs for charities so I take matters into my own hands and give cash directly to people. Sometimes I find ways to anonymously get the money to people of my acquaintance and sometimes I just drive up to the 7-11 where people are standing around waiting for work and fork it over. That last one is my Christmas week move.

I'm like the John Beresford Tipton of the new millennium, except I operate in $50 increments instead of $1 million.
