And don't forget to order your barbecue piggy stamps! These special stamps to honor the Chinese New Year taste like a favorite Chinese pork dish when licked on the back. Scratch it on the front and it will smell like it too!

I also wanted to remind people of an early comment by Meg Fox about an organization that supports Chinese girl-orphans. Here's her earlier comment:

With Chinese New Year coming up, I thought I’d mention a fantastic organization called Half the Sky.
Their goal “is to ensure that every one of China's orphans has a caring adult in her life.” They also have a wonderful “Kids4Kids” section with ideas for our own children who would like to help other children.

I *highly* recommend Half the Sky foundation. An absolutely fantastic organisation, and one I strongly people to either donate or buy something from their online shop to help them out.

Within two weeks we will be going to China (Shun Yi) to spend a couple of weeks at a foster home for Chinese orphans to give them a hand with day to day tasks and to generally help wherever and whenever it is necessary. It will be doing something useful while at the same time seeing what the situation is like first hand.

We're also in the process of adopting from China and therefore have a great interest in Chinese culture (but we always had previous to considering adoption) and how it's going to effect our child as she (or he - don't forget it's not just girls that are affected) grows up in a Western society. It's a lot to take on board, but I'm ready, willing and able..


I love Revolting Rhymes (and Dahl). I used it for my 8th grade poetry project.
