About hermitsdoor

Up here in the mountains, we have a saying, "You can't get there from here", which really means "We wouldn't go the trouble to do that". Another concept is that "If you don't know, we ain't telling." For the rest, you'll have to read between the lines.

  1. The Vicar says:

    Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation – Oxfam?
    Project Hope – National WASP-WWII Museum?
    Habitat for Humanity – Green Peace? (OK maybe these are on the same side of the continuum, it just sounds like they are opposed)

    Some of these organizations seem to be at opposite ends of the spectrum. How many of these are unsolicited requests (ei: you have never donated to them knowingly)?

    Apparently we didn’t move the mailbox far enough last summer.

      Vicar, you are on to something about the apparent contradiction in the world-views of organizations requesting our assistance…. I’ll come back to this next month.
