I love stories like this one: a woman lost her house to the bank after losing her job in the recession we're currently going through. So to get it back at auction, she's baking and selling cornbread.
This is the American spirit. If you see something you need/want, figure out a way to get it. Somehow that's been lost along the way. I hope she makes it.
I donated at her site (here) and encourage those of you who can to do the same. We get through life with each other, even if we never learn other people's names.
