    encouraging people to shop - and workers to have to give up time with their families - on Thanksgiving! It's disgraceful, and utterly unnecessary.

    I have also been a huge fan of Heifer - I "gave" animals to my folks at work and they LOVED the idea. My holiday cards come from The Arbor Day Foundation with a tree planted in a national forest for each card. My dad and I used to hand-make all our Christmas cards from linoleum block prints, and my mom addressed the envelopes and wrote the greetings. We got cards from people all over the world, and sent our little cards out across the world as well, which seemed very exciting to me. I still love the whole process, although with about 80 people on my list between family, friends, colleagues, and clients, it's very time consuming.

    Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it... in summer school.
