    today has been instructional in how the weather affects my choices. we are going through a rainy period but before that we had ab0ut the longest drought, by some measure, we have had in years.31%  of precip from Jan to July, then, since July, virtually less than ever by comparison.

Education is the first and most...

    Women are committed to the family, men as well, however I believe that women have more invested in a certain fundamental way..they have birthed their children and, in most societies, they are the main caregivers. Micro Loans through Kiva are a powerful way to actually connect with so many people, especially for women, from countries with a much...
