White As Snow

Original post made on Dec 9, 2009

It's raining, the cold, nasty rain of early December in Dublin, the worst time of year, too cold to be outside, but too warm for snow. I hate when it's like this, miserable, wet, and grey. Perhaps if Mr. Hartley was not droning on about the cultural importance of porcelain, or if I was not hungry for my lunch, pickles and corned beef, I would be attentive towards my lessons, more willing to listen to our dreadfully dull history lecture.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
