Charity Sale Announcement

As I write this I am working on my brother's computer.
We are here to meet our new baby newpher Seth.
Seth is a beautiful, healthy baby - just like his brother and sister.
And after a rough labour his mum is enjoying her time with her lovely family.
Sadly, this isn't the case for everyone.
When I decided to try and sell off some of my clothes to raise funds for charity it was hard to pick out one worthy cause.
Until I remembered that had I not received prompt medical care in 1996 I wouldn't be here now.
In May 1996 I had an ectopic pregnancy and by the time I collpased I had lost four pints of blood.
Luckily the swift and effective medical tresatment at my local hospital ensured that not only did I survive but I went on to have two more children.
Millions of women in the developing world are not so lucky.
And that is why I have chosen Women and Children First (WCF) as my chosen charity.
Details of how to make a donation are on my other blog.
Thanks for following me on this journey which will shortly come to an end.
But I hope you will stay with me as I embark on another adventure.

Been there done that. It's painful physically at first, then you have to deal with the big hole in your heart later. Good luck with the sale. It's such a worthwhile cause.

What a great idea, Jane. I have to go through your list and see if I see something I can fit into! Will it be on a "first come first served" basis or an auction style? Ciao. A.

The McDonnell XF-85 Goblin was an American prototype fighter aircraft conceived during World War II by McDonnell Aircraft. It was intended to be carried in and deployed from the bomb bay of the giant Convair B-36 bomber as a parasite fighterInfiniti HIDSupport for IT

Two prototypes were constructed before the program was terminated. The XF-85 was a response to a United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) requirement for a fighter to be carried within the Northrop XB-35 and B-36, then under developmentCartier Ballon Bleu replicaCotton Candy

Flight tests showed promise in the design, but the aircraft's performance was inferior to the jet fighters it would have been facing in combat, and there were difficulties in docking.Data Cabling London City, West End and Docklandsfree text

These fighters could not match the range of the Northrop B-35 or Convair B-36, the next generation of bombers developed by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF). The development cost for longer-ranged fighters was high, while aerial refueling was still considered risky and technologically difficult.[3] Pilot fatigue had also been a problem during long fighter escort missions in Europe and the Pacific, giving further impetus to innovative approachesBuick A/C compressorsSettle Credit Card Debt

usb-key bedrucktBaltimore Limo ServiceBy 1938, over 400 contraceptive manufacturers were in business, over 600 brands of female contraceptives were available, and industry revenues exceeded $250 million per year.[132] Condoms were sold in vending machines in some public restrooms, and men spent twice as much on condoms as on shaving.[133] Although condoms had become commonplace in the 1930s, feminists in the movement felt that birth control should be the woman's prerogative, and they continued to push for development of a contraceptive that was under the woman's control, a campaign which ultimately led to the birth control pill decades later.[134] To increase the availability of high-quality contraceptives, birth control advocates established the Holland–Rantos company to manufacture contraceptives – primarily diaphragms, which were Sanger's recommended method.[135] By the 1930s, the diaphragm with spermicidal jelly had become the most commonly prescribed form of contraception;[136] in 1938, female contraceptives accounted for 85 percent of annual contraceptive sales.
