Helped purchase the Equity House in Topeka, Kansas.

I just gave a bit to pay off the mortgage for the Equality House which is across the street from the horrible Westboro Church - the mean people who picket military funerals.

I really like the idea of a rainbow house right near them to counter their message. Anyone else got a few bucks to help pay for a house in Kansas?

Time sinks

Its been so long since I've blogged here. I guess I got tired of it, and other things started occupying my time. Mostly other people, wanting my time. It seems I am not very good at saying 'no', and tend to get caught up in helping.

This isn't necessarily a good thing. I often find myself in situations where I am being used by selfish people. Or weak people who can't go off on their own. So I have all these dependents who are drains on me. And they stop me from doing things for greater good. I need to stop these time sinks, and be stronger. Perhaps getting back here will help.

I made 2 kiva loans today.
Both to Julia's in Nicaragua.
