Cheers to Food Not Bombs in Orlando

I want to give a big shout out to a fine organization that unselfishly feeds homeless and underemployed people with healthy food, sometimes at sacrifice to themselves. It is Food Not Bombs, in Orlando, Florida (and worldwide, actually). I may say more about them later in another post, but for now I simply want to say thank you for the good work you do.

An appeal for a little help

In Africa now there is a drought that is threatening ten million people.

If we have enough to eat ourselves, it might be a compassionate thing to donate some money toward feeding these unfortunate people. One good organization is the World Food Program, but you might prefer another charity. Let's please contribute even a small amount. As little as $5 (US) would help feed a child and is unlikely to make a big dent in our own personal well being. Please spread the word.

New Blog

I will use this blog for posts that normally would go into my web site, but are more appropriate to a blog. Also, this will make it easier for me to post what I think are interesting news items, or simply to sound off from time to time. Having an easier way to make posts might cause me to make them more often. That's a good thing or a bad thing depending on your view of my writing, I guess.

So, let's get started with something important in the next post.
