Rainy Monday in StL - view from my office.

Many, many years ago, I was off to Howard University to go back to school. H-U!

We had a blue Galaxie. We just called it the Blue Ford. I just found out recently what the real model name was :-)

This month we are collecting your stories about the good things Americans are doing to make their community a better place. Some of your contributions will become blog posts and the project will end with a story that weaves together submissions to make a story of Americans by Americans for Americans.
They Take The Cake in Boise, Idaho : Participation Nation
As Kathy Plaisance drapes blue fondant over a freshly baked chocolate cake, she explains that no child should have a cake-less birthday. Plaisance oversees Community Cakes, a group of 50 volunteer bakers who deliver homemade birthday cakes to people who might otherwise not have one — in veterans’ homes, hospice centers and foster homes across southwest Idaho.
Plaisance tears up remembering the time she delivered a Superman cake to a boy in foster care.
“He was ecstatic. He had never had a cake like that before,” she says. “Those are the ones that get you, and make you want to keep doing it.”
