I think I did my best. But maybe failed. Please let me explain. Thursday my youngest girl was sick and had the day off school.
At lunch time we went for a walk up the street to get some juice. Along the way we walked past our local hair dresser, and she ask me if she could get a hair cut. Of course I said. During her hair cut, she said she would get it short (low maintance) if I got my hair cut short. OK you get the picture. Half way during my hair cut my heart went into my month. How I am going to pay for this. S_____ i just blow my $1.50 per day. I was so on auto pilot and did not think, I was doing so well and I just blew it on a hair cut.
So I guess in a way I failed, not for the lack of trying.
What do you think ?
Sunny side to the story,I have a cool hair cut and hair washing of my 10 year old is easier

More than a quarter of the children in the developing world are still critically undernourished, according to a new report. It also found 146 million children go hungry every day and 5.6 million kids die every year because they are not getting enough to eat -- a figure that corresponds to 10 children every minute.
"The lack of progress to combat malnutrition is damaging children and nations," said UNICEF Executive Director Ann Veneman. "Few things have more impact than nutrition on a child's ability to survive, learn effectively and escape a life of poverty."
Children continue to die of hunger in huge numbers despite a worldwide drive to combat it. In 2000, the United Nations announced a series of "millennium development goals." One of the goals was to halve the number of people worldwide who suffer from not getting enough to eat. But the number of children who go hungry in the developing world has improved only slightly in 15 years. In 1990, 32 percent of kids in the developing world were undernourished; this year that figure is 27 percent.
As you know on May 16 I enbark on a journey to find out what it is like to go hungry. And try to live on $1.50 per day. If you would like to help I am asking for people to give a $1.50, about the same as your cup of coffee.If you don't want to help a thought is enough.
Here is the link to help...

Yes coffee can save people...
The National Average is $1.38/cup. The American coffee drinker consumes 3.2 cups per day!
So I will do the math for you
= $4 LOW SIDE per person per day
$16 HIGH SIDE per person per day
Therefore this is enough to feed....how many people.
So I hope you can take one of those cups of coffee and help and starving person. Here is the link to help

I love my pets, yes even my neurotic poodle on some days. And I am not saying that we should not take care of them,but I think we need to look at the whole picture. Most American spend more money on the pets to feed them than we spend on feeding some humans.(I know I am going to get bad e mail from the like of Peta etc). But lets go on here...
$45 Billion on pets This is in the USA only. I’d probably faint if I saw the international numbers. Here’s how we pet people spend all that money:
For 2009, it estimated that $45.4 billion will be spent on all pets in the U.S. in these categories:
1. Food………………………………………………………………….$17.4 billion
Now there are 1.4 billion starving people in the world.You do the math
2. Supplies/OTC Medicine…………………………………..$10.2 billion
3. Vet Care……………………………………………………………$12.2 billion
4. Live animal purchases……………………………………$ 2.2 billion
5. Pet Services: grooming & boarding………………….$ 3.4 billion
OK as I said I love animals, I am not saying they are less important than humans, god forbid some animals are better than human ( and the name michael vick comes to my head... WHY ) But people lets get back to basics here. People living on less per day in 3rd world countries than we feed our pets.Look at the big picture
As you know,and I would love for you to past this on to others,I am going to leave on a $1.50 (no Ia m not going to eat dog food) but think about not having coffee for a week.
If you want to donate to me here is the link. Min help $1.50
