    Donation of Hair

    When I decided to change from long hair to short recently, my haircutter suggested donating to locks of love. Very glad to do it!

    howto fold a cushion from a blanket

    Let me just emphasize ... this blanket folding may really be an emergency measure for travel and such, or when one really cannot get a Zafu.
