*** Causing a stir:

Have you shipped off a box (or two) of school supplies to our U.S. forces in Kabul who are working with their colleagues with the British Army in supporting two orphanages and a school? This is pretty easy. And even some crayons will help.

I recommend a “Priority Mail” box from the U.S. Postal Service. If it fits, it ships, for one low flat-rate. How much school supplies can you fit in a box?

Here’s the latest communique from Tom Clementson:

Wanted to let you know we are rebuilding our pool of volunteers, something we have to do periodically since we have folks rotating in and out all the time. At any rate, we've conducted another supply drop at a local school. Wanted you to have the link so you can see what we've been up to:

*** From Connie J Mayse:

Hi, Ned! I worked last week in Basel, Switzerland, the point at which France, Germany and Switzerland meet. While there, I received my weekly issue of JOTW. Amazing how you found me halfway 'round the world! You must have the same network as Santa Claus.

But thank goodness for dual delivery of JOTW – my email carrier truncated the issue after 50 job listings. Quel dommage! OMG! The day was saved when I visited www.nedsjotw.com. Thank you for backing up JOTW, in a sense.

I enjoyed Basel, walking many miles and becoming adept at trains and trams. Had great Turkish, French, Italian food (though not all at once) and some yummy Swiss chocolate and cheese (again, not all at once). My 31st wedding anniversary occurred during the trip, so I brought hubby along. It was he who pointed out that Coke and beer are the same price in Basel, and beer is often the better value!

Thanks again, Ned for doing what you do. I hope all is well in your world. cj
