Money for a Piggery!!!!

I've been meaning to post this for weeks!  My friend Michelle is working hard to raise money for a pig farm in Uganda, a project through Groundwork Opportunities.  The pig farm will teach families about raising pigs, give them their own pigs, and enable them to increase their standard of living significantly.  She and her colleague are trying to raise about $1,000 more for the farm, to reach their goal of $10,000.  They are going to Uganda next month and would like to raise the rest of it by then.

Learn more about the pig farm project and donate to the cause here:

I think that projects like this--where people are benefited with knowledge, new skills, and confidence in their own abilities--are so important, and I hope you donate if you can.

Under New Management

Merry noticed that a restaurant in town had a sign up saying "Under New Management!"  She turned to me and said, "You know what that means? 'We don't suck as much as we used to.'" I thought: how true, how true.  Now that she's got two brains inside her instead of one, she is sooo much smarter.

Also, belly pic from two weeks ago.  As you may have noticed, Merry is getting all "teeny bopper" and taking mirror pictures of herself.
