Happy New Year! Hope Calendar updates!

Happy New Year!!!

The Hope Calendar campaign to raise funds for Montgomery County Women's Center is still going on - thru the end of January and I am so happy to report early success! On the last day of 2008, I made a quiet donation of $3000 for the first half of the money raised!

We have at least a thousand more but the wonderful volunteers helping to sell them are patiently collecting that money to turn it in at the end of the month and we will donate it then.

If you haven't already (or if you need more) - please visit and purchase a 2009 calendar... it is an adorable calendar, only $10 each, and the entire proceeds are donated to the women's center :)

Let's see how much we can write that second check for!!!

Merry Late Christmas!

Sorry I am late with Christmas wishes ;) We had a great time visiting family and are starting to think about cleaning up and putting away the holiday decor... thinking
Wouldn't it be great if you could just leave it out all year - it'd really make July festive!

YOU suggest the next contest!

Contest below is still active - so move on over to and order a calendar so you can win that digital keychain!

We have some bigger prizes coming down the line here and I need some great ideas for the contests - so YOU get to suggest one!

OK - I asked for funny and you played along - thank you so much. I'll tell you what made me spit Coke (you owe me a keyboard) is the comment to the post above this one in which I initially said "It's 724 pounds and on its way here!" to which my quick witted reader said "is it your MIL?" I love my MIL BUT that just caught me in the funny bone! And no it wasn't my MIL, it was 2000 of the Hope Calendars :)
