viewer feedback

One of the shows I edit, Global Spirit, has been generating some unique viewer feedback:

> LASTNAME: Ovallep
> POSTAL_CODE: 10031
> SUBJECT: Global Spirit
> Mr Host: Congratulations!!
> Your program is done according to the New Age. The One who write you is an instructor of this new times, serving god and humans being.Plase may me tell you something: Your themes are only introduction of each one, there is much much more to learn, it mean, to teach, in every one of this, that's our function, but only for those who are ready to enter in an upper world. For thousands of years, men have read and hear about god, times has come that will know it. Go ahead!!

more on donations to Haiti

I found out today that the SF Fire Department is collecting donations until Friday February 12. I encourage all of you to find a firehouse near you and drop off any clothing and other useful items that you are not using. Follow this link so you can find an SFFD firehouse location.

Here's a list of items they accept:

* Clothing, including new or used underwear, for all ages. It would be incredibly helpful if these donations could be separated (babies, small children, large children, women & men’s clothes).
* Shoes, all sizes
* Medical Supplies: Gauze, Tape, Neosporin, Tylenol/Advil (Generics OK)
* Kotex and Cloth Diapers
* Towels and Sheets
* Plastic Storage Boxes (Large) for packing, shipping and giving Haitians something to store their personal effects in. If you can bring nothing else, bring these!

It makes me happy to know my shirts, shoes, skirts, pants, even my underwear, will be worn by someone who lost everything and really needs it.

donating to Haiti

I have three large bags full of women's apparel and a few other useful trinkets which I will drop off on Monday or Tuesday.

Not much more to my post today but to say that I am happy to be able to give.

I hope my giving inspires you too.

here it is again... we need the eggs

Just a reminder. This should make all of us sigh in recognition of the richness of life.

Alvy Singer: [narrating] After that it got pretty late, and we both had to go, but it was great seeing Annie again. I... I realized what a terrific person she was, and... and how much fun it was just knowing her; and I... I, I thought of that old joke, y'know, the, this... this guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, "Doc, uh, my brother's crazy; he thinks he's a chicken." And, uh, the doctor says, "Well, why don't you turn him in?" The guy says, "I would, but I need the eggs." Well, I guess that's pretty much now how I feel about relationships; y'know, they're totally irrational, and crazy, and absurd, and... but, uh, I guess we keep goin' through it because, uh, most of us... need the eggs.
