The GlobalGiving Italy Earthquake Relief and Recovery Fund.

The deadliest earthquake in Italy in over 15 years left L’Aquila and the surrounding areas without water. Almost 500 aftershocks, some of which were strong enough to move furniture in Rome. At least 17,000 people are living in makeshift tent cities. About 28,000 people were left homeless. About 15,000 of those were moved to over 100 different hotels. Others either slept in their cars or in over 3,600 tents that were set up with about 40 kitchens. GlobalGiving is working with Slow Food Italy, which has a chapter in Abruzzo, and the US-based UNICO. Both organizations are in the process of assessing needs and providing basic supplies and necessities to the earthquake victims. You can support relief efforts in the Abruzzo region by bidding in this auction, or making a direct donation at

What’s Hot, What’s Ugly

I have been looking around the web lately to see what is hot.
I was surprised by one article that was called- Ugly Handbags”. I am sure we have all see some of those! But what surprised me is that someone would advertise their bags as such?  When I saw the name, of the designer.  My surprise quickly disappeared.
Louis Vuitton.   I am positive with that name they could sell anything.

Or is it “A hunting we shall go”?
