The Farmer's Wife DVD raffle winners!

Congrats to Let's Throw Tomatoes and Kate is a Twit. You are the winners of the contest! Please contact us as soon as possible at to claim your DVDs.

On a brighter note, we've decided to promote a fantastic charity in honor of the truly needy.

Did you know that the cost of toilet paper is literally "wiping" out the budgets of several small nonprofits? Nonprofits that could be spending their money on better things have money tied up in office essentials like TP, which can sometimes cost them thousands of dollars a year. Enter a California chapter of the United Way, which just held its third annual toilet paper drive. This year's drive, for example, helped  St. John’s Shelter Program for Women and Children save $4,000 that it spent on shelter, food and other services for 33 children for one week. Wellspring Women’s Center saved $5,860 that it spent on breakfasts for 200 women and children for approximately 15 days. Community Housing Opportunities Corp. saved $9,000 it could spend on summertime youth enrichment programs for children in low-income families.

It's just a roll of toilet paper, but it can make all the difference. Consider helping out the United Way by donating toilet paper today.
