I must say of this. Please read of me.

I was found in a trash can of when I was a few days old. A man who was walking of his dog saved me and took me to hospital.

Mamma found me there and she and Papa adopted of me out of the hospital.

I am from Romania, and it is a very poor country. If Mamma and Papa had not taken of me, I would be in an orphanage and I would not have a good life.

We who are very blessed must take the care of others who are needing. One of my classmates, L, is poor. She takes care of her Mamma who is very, very disabled. She is a very great student and was given the scholarship for her college education.

She and her Mamma could not afford for Internet service or for a computer. They do not own of a car. L rides on the bus.

No more of this. I put them with ATT DSL service and I pay for that every month. I found of a very nice refurbished laptop computer and I put the Windows 8 of it. When DA and I go to the errands, we buy them very much food of each week.

I give much to a food bank of here, and I give Carl food also.

I am sorry for those who are to go hungry. It hurts of me, for I should have been poor. I do not deserve of Mamma and Papa.

I think we must try to help those who are hungry and poor. Even of a can of beans to a food bank is helpful. We give to Manna of many foods.

And of the food we have, it must be to be grateful of every mouth full. I thank God for everything of this.

It is all I wished to say of this.

With love,
~Cat

Very nice looking spread Steve. What kind of sauce is that on the salmon?

you are completely missing the point & blurring the shape.we all know how the economics work,we all know about sweatshops,huge margins & poverty line payslips...anyone who watches the tv,listens to the radio,reads a paper, uses the internet or simply walks about with their eyes open knows all of that & it will takes many,many years to change.it is pointless imo to reiterate what we all already know & have heard a thousand times before.
my point was a simple one...these people need help NOW.the symptoms can be alleviated while we try to find a cure

Candy - it's what's for supper at pac's house on Friday!

Meanwhile, at Chez Goddess, we finally had the potato and leek soup! And at long last, after many requests by Harry, I finally have photographic proof that I cooked! Apparently I should have taken a tighter shot, but baby steps. I finally learned how to get the blasted photo from Dropbox to here.
great looking grub chaps,nice jobs one & all.at last cg....took yer bloody time over it.but got there in the end eh?now keep 'em coming!

Tonight's meal at the Bunny's house was kielbasa with sauerkraut, fried potatoes and peas. Simple weeknight meal.
thanks bunny...little & often and we'll get it sorted.the food banks are only allowed to supply cans,jars & packets.no fresh food.a tin of potatoes & a tin of corned beef will make hash for two meals & cost less than 2/$3.not much is it?
dinner sounds deelish sb!!

I agree with you 100% on all counts including your work at the food bank. We do about 30 hours of volunteer work a week and constantly hear "How much do they pay you for doing this?". Mouths fly open when they hear "Nothing, it's called volunteering".
