you know... if you do plan on giving some to charity... would it be wrong of me to ask for a loan?

Eeks!
I'd have to adopt you (umm...that won't work); or you'd have to be a bigger charity than *I*. HEH. Your technology kicks my ARSE. :D So I don't think the IRS would accept you as my charity :D

Re: Eeks!
i'm starting to think that charities as a whole are nothing more than BULLSHIT

i search and search, and i see TONS of ways to DONATE to a charity, but lil actual evidence that they DO anything, and NO WHERE to apply to actually receive any HELP from one of them.

bs

Agree 100%
Yup. Which is why I PERSONALLY HAND OUT stuff at the fire station downtown. I SEE the families; I KNOW they'll be the ones benefitting. I NEVER give money (because typically, it's spent on drugs/alcohol, even in a roundabout way). So...you're right. NEVER give to a 'third-party' charity. It's usually some jerk giving MAYBE 1/8th of it to the designated charity. Ugh. I give my time, too. And to ME, that's much more valuable (I volunteer with elderly...long story). Actually, in 1998, I DID think to myself: "who in my life has done something worth my 'giving' to?" I decided my doctor's nurse...because she was SO understanding and considerate. I took her shopping with no money limit, and took her out for a nice lunch. Do you know how much she spent (mind you, I told her there was NO LIMIT)? Less than $400. Gives humanity hope. And I had to FORCE her to spend THAT (she kept saying "I don't really NEED that makeup, but it would be nice", things like that). I would NOT allow her to spend it on family! This was a personal and well-thought-out decision. She was the ONLY PERSON IN MY LIFE at that point who was considerate enough -- throughout the years -- who deserved it. So...the lesson in this is be careful how you treat others; they might win a buttload of money, and YOU might be the first person they think of. She cried when I called her, and had the article framed. Tragic ending to the whole story, but I'll save it. Not worth getting in to.

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
