this says a lot...


Kiva is now in Detroit! Kiva recently launched a new non-profit, community coalition to bring more than $500,000 in microloans to Detroit small businesses.
Our First Kiva City
Kiva City is a new way for Kiva to accelerate the growth of U.S. microfinance by empowering communities. Our first Kiva City is Kiva Detroit, a partnership between Kiva, Michigan Corps, Knight Foundation and ACCION USA to expand the reach of Kiva lenders to the entrepreneurs in Detroit.
Kiva City was announced by President Bill Clinton at CGI America. You can see the video here.

Kiva City
Kiva Detroit is the first Kiva City, a new initiative that enables US communities to bring Kiva to their local entrepreneurs. Kiva City creates alliances between Kiva, local civic leaders, local community organizations, and financial institutions. A Kiva City alliance, such as Kiva Detroit, enables Kiva to expand the reach of its lenders, through the help of the local community.

Discovered this in Aspen!
Welcome to OLovesM– we are a line of unique bags created from un-used yoga mats, and other materials that companies were going to throw away. I have given them refuge for their remnants, and created the OlovesM Bag Line. Enjoy your bag and remember: You are using a bag that IS making a difference!

All our bags are proudly made in the USA

HP TouchPad

Yes, I work in High Tech - but I "operate" at home pretty much low tech. I do not have an MP3 player, I do not have a SmartPhone, I just recently turned off my cable and I keep things relatively simple. But, this month I am going to step things up... I am ordering the HP TouchPad!
