and Richard: ... as far as that "exercise to find a place to put all of the several hundreds of dollars worth of non-perishable food that tastes like yuk and that even the cat refuses to eat, but doesn't rot..."
Can I seriously suggest Haiti?
...*That* isn't even funny...some of those poor folks would KILL for the so called food I complain about. I used to fly down there to the orphanages to distribute donated medicines from drug stores and companies nearing expiration date because often that was the *only* medicine they could get. Our flying club provided the plane and I and other pilots went down there to deliver the stuff. Even years ago, it was heart rendering to see the abject poverty. I can only imagine what it is like now. I complain I have no shoes, till I see one with no feet!
When it hurts so, so much pain, it can't be funny.... When we all come out of this on the other side, your suggestion is an excellent one for real....Don't donate MONEY, that just goes to the politicians and the government graft takers...send merchandise/food instead...that is why I personally flew down ther in the club plane with STUFF...to ensure it got to those that most needed it. Oh, I wish I could still fly!!!! I'd do it again in a heartbeat....Sorry, rant off....
