Wounded Soldier Christmas Card
(Important Update)
Thanks to Danielle, for this new information:
A call to Walter Reed this morning revealed that they are no longer able to do the "Injured Soldier" program for the Christmas cards. The cards will not get to them. She called the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD as well. (apparently there is a security concern  with the non-specific addressed mail, what a world)

best way to send a bunch of cards to injured soldiers, is the Red Cross office at Walter Reed.
Bundle multiple cards in one big manilla envelope and send them to the Red Cross office and they will distribute them:


Red Cross
Walter Reed Army Medical Center
6900 Georgia Avenue NW
Heaton Pavillion
Washington, DC 20307
You can also call and get a soldier’s name to send a card.
The number is (202)782-3501


The man there said they can also use stamps, gloves and stocking caps at the Red Cross

Trained Weasels
The Legend of "Sleepless in Louisville"
I was reminded yesterday of our first community-wide online controversy.
It was 6 years ago in 2001, and it really began our Community Internet experiment.

It turns out that there is a piece of the Louisville Experience that is universal; the sound of the trains as they chug by, with an occasional
whistle in the distance.

In the early days of the Discussion Forum people were anonymous except for an alias they would choose, and a Posting appeared one day from an individual called
"Sleepless in Louisville" The posting explained that the whistles, made it difficult to sleep and asked for opinions. The response was immediate from several folks that felt the sound of the train whistle in the night was soothing, familiar and re-assuring, i.e. "the sound of home".

As the discussion continued, both Pro and Con it was obvious that the issue divided the community almost exactly in half, and the discussion became more and more vigorous. Everybody seemed to have an opinion. We may yet disclose the true identity of Sleepless, there has been a lot of speculation, but it remains a true Louisville Mystery.

Our webmaster Irina had recently arrived in Nebraska from the big city, with a Masters degree in Language, was puzzled when she heard how strongly residents felt about
Trained Weasels but took it all in stride. It must be a small town thing.

This week is Irina appreciation week as she is
visiting her family back in Russia after 9 years.
We were very fortunate that Laura Setchell was available to help,
and Irina did a lot of training. But Saturday she had to go and leave this bunch of trained weasels to run the various businesses:


Man, do I appreciate her now!!

Maybe it would be a good idea, to do something nice, right now, for that hard working better-half of yours.
