-Octavio Paz

Neil Young, Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead, Railroad Earth, Neko Case, Scissor Sisters

Things I am NOT fond of

Intolerance.

Please Consider This...

Give the gift of life!

Please consider becoming a bone marrow donor/ stem cell donor by joining the National Marrow Donor Program.

Donor Site for those in Europe

You could "Be the Match" and have the unique opportunity of saving someone's life.In case you're wondering, marrow and stem cell donation is done while you're alive. It's much simpler than giving someone a kidney.

This is an issue that is very close to home for me. My daughter received a peripheral stem cell transplant from a donor in the registry in July 2010. Her donor is in Germany!

Also, please consider being a blood and platelet donor at your local blood bank.

Disappointments

I've been flaked on.

Comment: Wowzers Mindy! What a wonderful swap you sent to me. The envelope is so pretty, and then inside I found 7 great images for my enjoyment and collections. I'm just smiling already even before I get to your questions and answers (#7 had me laughing out loud). . . . . I'll send a message to you going over your Q&A. I made a little zine for my Q&A, and although I received a Heart and a very nice comment on it, there wasn't any feedback on the content and that was a little disappointing to me. P.S. - my favorite images were the owls, the radishes, and the Matisse Thanks 😊
Response: You're welcome! This was so fun to put together for you. And, thank You for your answers to the questions. Doing that makes the swap experience sweeter.

I updated the rules in The Bargain Boutique and asked that everyone read and sign them. Unfortunately I don't see your name so I had to remove you. If you'd like to rejoin please let me know. Thanks!
