Today's the day.  Thank a vet.  Your donations go to help disabled veterans.  One thing that you may be interested to know is that the VFW Posts purchase the poppies from the disabled vets that make them, then donate the proceeds back to them.  That helps them TWICE.

Thanx, B&G.  Here in St. Louis, we're also going to be out today and tomorrow.  I am not a member of the VFW, nor am I eligible, but I volunteer quite a bit at the post.

People apeared to be in a great mood yesterday, and my can was FULL by the end of my shift.  Even better: only 2 people gave change, which, of course, was greatly appreciated in itself. When you have people putting $5 bills in the can, though, it makes you think maybe we can save this country after all.
