Tonight is Christmas Eve (I figure I explained Hanukah, so I'd best explain Christmas too...oh wait, everyone knows what Christmas is! LOL) and here is my recipe for a Merry Christmas:
Wake Up. Count Blessings. Repeat.
The U.S government has told representatives of several charities that it is unable to honor
some earlier promises and would have money to pay for food only in emergency crises.
The cutbacks, up to $100 million, come at a time when the number of hungry in the world
is rising for the first time in years and all food programs are being stretched.
As a result, Save the Children, Catholic Relief Services and other charities have suspended
or eliminated programs that were intended to help the poor feed themselves through
improvements in farming, education and health. –NY Times
