Marsha Cowan, a Las Cruces Bernina sewing machine dealer is sponsoring a bra decorating contest to raise money for breast cancer awareness this month. She got 65 entries which isn’t bad for a small city like Las Cruces. You’re supposed to vote on the bra you like best, each vote costing one dollar. Eric and I had a hard time deciding which ones we liked so we voted for 17 of them (which was all the cash we had on hand; they didn’t take checks or credit cards). I took some pictures to share with you. Hopefully there are similar events happening in your area that you’ll find worthy of supporting.
Speaking of supporting worthwhile causes, I’d really like it if we had our own designated charity that we supported as a group. We have the ability to make a difference. I’ve brought this up before but it never went anywhere. Feel free to include your ideas and suggestions…the national Make A Difference Day is coming up October 28th. We’re too late to do anything this year but maybe we could mark the day by starting something we can all support.

The New Mexico Question by Janice Reader. New Mexico has an official state question, “Red or Green?” which refers to the kind of chile you want on your enchiladas (I usually pick red).
