Okay, so I can't knit, so there's no knitting news, and it's December, so there's not a lot of Phillies news (Adam Eaton, anyone?), and with this stupid tendinitis I shouldn't even be typing that much, so here's what I'm going to do. For a few days, in the spirit of the holidays and giving and all that sort of good stuff, I will highlight a few charities close to my heart.

Believe me, some years I'm in a giving mood and some years I'm not. Maybe this year you are or maybe this year you're not - I've been there! But if you are in a giving mood, and you need a little inspiration about where to give, for what it's worth take a gander.

Parkinson's Disease has had a direct effect on my family's life, so what Michael J. Fox has done with his charitable foundation is mind-blowingly wonderful. He has no political affiliations, and since 2000 he has raised $80 million for Parkinson's research. My heart goes out to him and his family; I hope a cure or some sort of meaningful amelioration for the disease is found in his lifetime.

Here's his website:

Donate by Mail:
The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research
Grand Central Station
P.O. Box 4777
New York, NY 10163

Now a final note for today: Some adult in this family who is not me bought Chocolate Chip Pop Tarts for Gus at the market the other day.

This morning, being too lazy to prepare anything healthier, I decided to try said Pop Tarts. When Gus saw what was on my plate he said, "Your tastebuds are about to go on a journey of yumminess!"

Wa ha ha!
