Do you decorate outside?

Are you hosting or going somewhere this year?

Big group or small one?

How is shopping going?

No, I did not have to go "find" her daughter's name.  Her name is well known to me and has been for years.  I found the link to the race under Jambles' name.  

But you looked for Jam's name. Why wouldn't you ask her first?

As for Jambles not answering the query, I assumed she hadn't seen in.  The only other explanation would be that either she did see and and chose not to acknowledge it, which would be deliberately rude, and I didn't want to think she was deliberately rude, or possibly that she did not know it would be polite to acknowledge it, and I didn't want to think she was that ignorant of the coventions of polite behavior.

You made it sound like you asked her and had a conversation with her about it.

Would, as in you haven't told her?   You said days ago, that she thanked bord.

I think you need to find your own PI, if you think it's warranted.  Good luck.

Why wouldn't I ask Jambles where she lived first?  Hey, she looked up where I lived, or relied on someone else to do it for her.  It's more efficient to look it up myself.  As for what I "made it sound like," good heavens, no.  That's what you inferred.  That's on you, not me.

You don't have this charity in your own area that you could contribute to?

UH oh, if that is true and I have to know the child personally, the adult personally (and not just on the internet)....I've made a number of donations incorrectly...all based on the jambles-turkey logic.  Funny though, none of them acted in this manner, a simple thank you note for the support instead of all the high drama!

That one doesn't have to know a child personally do donate to a cause.  One can donate to a cause because they think it's a good cause and/or for other connections.  

And? Where was it said otherwise. I am specificially speaking about researching someone to do so. Why not just ASK the person? Maybe because they didn't want them to know, since they specifically have said they asked the charity to say it was anonymous so they could just write it off at the end of the year.

You've shared a lot of personal information on this bord, How else do I/(we) know you're a professor in the midwest and that there are at least a couple others that live near you?  Right..  B/c you talk about it....... D'oh.  I thought what is spoken here stays here.  Obviously not, and you're as guilty as anybody else you used to accuse that of.

Oh, please.  You can't understand a "for instance" kind of post?  Of course you can.

Well your #'s were even lower. Are you willing to tell us how much you DID contribute?

You are perfectly free to donate any amount you like to a charity of your own choosing in honor of anyone.  There is nothing sinister about it.   If you want to donate to a worthy cause in honor of me or my children, well.....I'd be honored.

That wasn't my point, that was your point...so your issues, not mine.  :)
