Help Me celebrate my 40th birthday

The thing with having nothing to give is there’s ALWAYS something to give – but sometimes we feel the price is too high.

My 40th birthday is coming up and I want to make a big deal out of it. I want a big party, I want lots of gifts and I REALLY want lots of birthday cards.
I remember the days when I was still a wee school boy and I’d get dozens of cards on my birthday. They’d line the mantlepiece in the living room and probably cover the TV …

Named Websites for Wells, our fundraiser was that we donated $15 to the fund for every new web hosting plan we sold through NewBlogHosting.com

Those of you who have read this blog before will probably know that it is about my family’s efforts to raise money for needy people/causes.
We realized earlier this year that there is a lot of need in this world, real need, urgent, life threatening need and yet we live in a society where we are blessed beyond measure and yet many of us spend so much, either by choice or simply because of the high cost of living, we have very little we can give.
