I just bought two gift certificates from
KIVA, a Web-based micro-lending organization that helps entrepreneurs in developing countries start small businesses. The gift recipient chooses which aspiring small business owner he/she wants to help. I think this is a great idea! A friend of mine has given them small loans in the past and always got her money back - plus a little interest.

Now who to give a gift membership for Red Feather Development (an organization that builds straw bale homes on Indian reservations throughout the United States)...?

"You know those calendars that seem to hang in every mechanic's garage, the ones with the beautiful girls in swimsuits and high heels fawning over cars or tractors?

This isn't one of those.

Dan Denetchee's 2008 calendar, "Featuring Native Women Bikers", has women and machines all right.

But these women know how to drive the machines. In fact, they own them.

And you won't find any airbrushed cleavage in this calendar. Just lots of denim, leather and turquoise."

I'm going to order one and send it to my uncle in Germany who's a big Harley fan. :D
