Curing cancer with shoes

Okay so we can’t cure cancer with shoes even if they make us feel better.  QVC will be having their annual  FFANY  Shoes on Sale show in Wednesday, October 15th from 7 to 10 pm eastern time.  If you’re new to this here’s how it works; Tons of shoes will be shown and will be sold at half price.  The net proceeds are donated to a variety of breast cancer research and education charities.

Here’s the list of shoe designers represented this year.  There may well be more.  Also a word, if you’re really into shoes don’t bother trying to tape or tivo this.  The shoes are usually gone quite quickly.

Happy Birthday Mahatma

“I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him . Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to freedom for the hungry and spiritually starving millions?
Then you will find your doubts and your self melt away.”

– One of the last notes left behind by Gandhi in 1948, expressing his deepest social thought.

I am fortunate to share a birthday with Mahatma Gandhi.  If I can become one tenth of the person that he was I will consider my life to have been a success.
