Holiday Giving Guide

Every year during the holiday season there are many rumors spread about some of the charities that ask for our donations. We gathered some information about these supposed revelations.

First we have a Snopes analysis of an annual letter that is circulated which can be seen by clicking here and then an analysis by the prestigious Forbes Fianancial magazine which has some links to a few web sites that rate the various charities.

From our readers

Dear Peggy Jo,
Thank you for publicizing my book Her Sacrifice it took many years for me to complete. Now, with Amazon, it is in circulation. I would like the people that downloaded the book during last week's sale to take the time to fill out the review form so that I can see what the general public thinks of my book because I am in the process of writing another.
yours truly,
Francine LeGrove.
Dear Peggy Jo,
Subject: A little humor is always good
  1. I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people. I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.
  2. I changed my car horn to gunshot sounds. People move out of the way much faster now.
  3. You can tell a lot about a woman's mood just by her hands. If they are holding a gun, she's probably angry.
  4. Gone are the days when girls used to cook like their mothers. Now they drink like their fathers.
  5. You know that tingly little feeling you get when you really like someone? That's common sense leaving your body.
  6. I don't like making plans for the day because then the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.
  7. I didn't make it to the gym today. That makes five years in a row,
  8. And so I decided to change calling the bathroom the John and renamed it the Jim. I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
  9. Dear paranoid people who check behind shower curtains for murderers: If you find one, what's your plan?
  10. Everyone has a right to be stupid. Some just abuse the privilege.

They will ask about Zion, [turning] their faces to this road. They will come and join themselves to the Lord in an everlasting covenant that will never be forgotten."
Jeremiah 50:5

Tom Caulfield's vision was to assemble a group of dads, willing to allow their children the opportunity to sail the Mac. How he and 5 other Dads trained, organized, and acted as crew for their sons. Come hear about why they decided to do it, the planning and costs that were involved, and all the roadblocks they faced. But more importantly how this experience changed the lives of these 6 junior sailors; and how the boys themselves built a team. Tom has Sailed for over 30 years. He was a Crescent Junior Sailor and has sailed 16 Mac Races. He is the Co- Founder of the Grosse Pointe South Sailing team.

Ari Buchanan may join as a presenter as well. He has also sailed for over 30 years and has delivered and cruised multiple trips along the east coast including having sailed his family from Charleston to Detroit


RETIRING TO THE OPEN SEA

BILL & JUDY STELLIN

Having sailed Lake Michigan for over 25 years, Judy and Bill at ages 65 and 64, set off in their sailboat for a year-long self-supported cruise on the Mediterranean. Eight years later, after two trans-Atlantic passages, they came home with a story to share! Learn about their adventures sailing a big-rigged, high-performance sloop through the far reaches of ocean and seas and into ports bristling with navigational and even political hazards as retirees with a budget but no itinerary. Bill is a retired banker and Judy a retired educator.

Seminar runs from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM and is free. All sailors welcome. The Grosse Pointe Yacht Club does not accept cash payments in the bar or dining room --credit card or yacht club account.
