I've returned and have sent $300 to Michelle in Vermont

Thanks again to everyone who has emailed me over the last month. I've been busy with all sorts of things and have neglected answering as many messages as I'd normally like to. And I certainly apologize for not mailing out money or updating this blog in a while either. Please forgive me folks.

Anyway, fall is upon those of us who live in the northern half of the United States and pretty much all of Canada. I've been carving jack o' lanterns and eating Halloween candy (too much candy actually!).

In a celebration of the season, I've agreed to send $300 to Michelle in Vermont. She says she needs some money to buy birthday presents for her child and if there's some left over, perhaps some groceries and a Halloween costume too. Money is tight and every little bit helps.

I understand that there may be others with what are more urgent needs or pressing issues. But I wanted to help Michelle today because it felt like a good thing to do. I know that birthdays are important days for kids, and hopefully this makes for a good one.

Please keep those emails coming and I'll do my best to read them and respond if I can. Your comments are always welcome on this blog too. Thanks for reading.
