Hello everyone! I’m doing an Avon Fundraiser for the Hornell Area Humane Society, which is a no-kill shelter (my favorite kind of shelter). They do wonderful work for us here in Steuben County, New York, but could use more money to cover operating costs. Lately they have had a LOT of kittens dropped off andContinue reading “Online Fundraiser for the Hornell Area Humane Society”

The Boston Globe or Boston Brickbat?
The April 9, 2016 Boston Globe issue that panned Donald Trump was a waste of time and paper pulp. I’m surprised that they didn’t use red print for the headline.
A once-great paper has fallen so far from grace that I don’t think anyone could pull it up again. The editorial board has torpedoed the paper like a North Korean nuke in the ocean. Gone is the era of journalistic integrity and reporting a story. It has been replaced by the ridiculous in order to entertain the poorly read masses.

Very few disabled models are used in ad campaigns despite the availabilityContinue reading “Fashion Meets Disability Survey”
