Origami Club

Click on post title to visit Origami Club, a site on, yup, origami. It actually has animated and drawn instructions, which makes it a lot easier to follow.
Even if you're not a big fan of folding paper (I'm not), you can learn to admire the inherent creativity of origami.

East Africa

If you can help in cash or kind, please do, if you can't, at least pray for the situation to improve.
The riots in London, the Eurozone and American debt crises, the continued conflicts in the Mid East are newsworthy but seem to jostle attention from the fact that thousands are dying from hunger and sickness in the Horn of Africa. I wonder though, if there is an element of racism in this lack of coverage (compare coverage to the recent earthquakes in Japan), or perhaps that food crises are so commonly reoccuring in African states that the press and public no longer feel they want to know.
