That's one way to stay warm. And even though alcohol is a diuretic, let's think about switching to dry-composting toilets...hey, Cuba and astronauts do it. And note that when talking to the wo/man in the mirror, it may talk back to you about water use.

Watch out for your credit card company keeping a % of your donation money. Sign this petition and demand they stop! I vote for donating to Partners in Health for Haitian quake relief. Also, see if where you or your friends work matches donations...Google does this, for instance. Coordinate giving! Kevin at CityDish has many food & drink related fundraisers listed.

Move Your Money! Watch this video, check out the site, and investigate which local bank is best for you. I'm moving dough into Mission National Bank. No bail outs in community banks, plus they do cool things such as sponsor local kids sports teams, lend to public housing, and support local businesses. Uplifting: Sketchfest runs Jan 14-Feb 2

Not uplifting: forced labor masked as a rehab center in Mexico DF
