[livejournal.com profile] derien made a post about the Heifer Project and I was surprised to see she didn't mention, what was for me, the most amusing part. This catalog is filled with lots of pictures of children from various less developed countries with their Heifer Project animals: Thailand, Latvia, Nepal, Armenia,Ecuador, Boliva. The Heifer Project really provides developement opportunities all over the globe. On one page there is a picture of a girl holding an adorable fuzzy lamb. The caption on that picture reads, "In Houlton, Maine, a loving child adores her sheep." Houlton. Maine.

The Heifer Project is based on a really great idea. It deserves your support if you've got a few dollars, pounds, or euros to spare.

People often look to the words of the Fed for wisdom on financial matters, perhaps they should look to the catwalk instead. Gisele Bundchen has specified all her contracts will be in euros from now on. Apparently Gisele and her sister, who is also her manager, understand currency risk. I can understand her concern. If I were earning $30m a year I wouldn't want to kiss $5m goodbye just because the Fed got desperate to shore up the house of cards the week before I got paid.

Let's be franc, sometimes you're feeling pounded by the exchange rates and you get a yen for a bit of euro cash, you're not won over by the dollar.

My apologies to Prince, my apologies to most of y'all. I am not a slasher. I just play one to tease the fangirls.
