Just a couple more weeks until I make my way back to Oakland and settle in with my lovely wife in our cozy apartment. I’m grateful for Skype and free long distance calls. At least we can be in touch, even if we can’t actually touch.
I’ve added a link in the left margin for the Alameda County Community Food Bank’s Virtual Food Drive. Several Oakland bloggers are collaborating to encourage donations and I’m happy to support the effort. The ACCFB says that they are able to stretch their resources by a multiplier of 7 by receiving cash rather than food. (They are able to cut their operating costs and purchase more economically by buying in bulk.) Please join us in making a donation. Your contribution of $10 dollars can put a tasty holiday meal on some family’s table.
