Menu for Hope 6 – $28,530 (and counting) plus new prizes

Menu for Hope 6 is beginning our second week with some very impressive numbers, we've now raised $28,530 (and counting) for the UN World Food Programme.  And, to launch into our second week in style, we're bringing in some fantastic new items to our raffle.  Over in Europe, our regional host David Lebovitz brought in some impressive stuff, including a Krups professional deep-fryer (shipped to EU countries only) and an array of delectable chocolates.  Our wine host Alder Yarrow of Vinography added to his list a luxury getaway at Meadowood Resort in Napa to his already impressive line-up of bid items. 

Over here on Chez Pim, I've got quite a few cool new raffle items to add as well.  I hope some of these new items will entice you to donate to Menu for Hope and make your bids – the more you give, the better your chances!  Ok, enough overture, let's get on to the good stuff.

UE42  Midtown lunch tour with Midtown Lunch

UE42 Zach Brooks of Midtown Lunch will take you on a midtown lunch tour like no other.  He took me on it when I was in NY a couple months ago, and let me just tell you it's an experience I won't soon forget.  Even if you're already a midtown luncher and knows the lay of the land just as well as the guy in the next cubicle, you'll still want to bid on this one, because there's nothing like midtown lunching with the king of Midtown Lunch himself.

    I placed a bid for the baking cookbook collection (David Lebovitz)yesterday; however, I forgot to check the box that provides my email address (saw the note after I paid that I should have done this). In the event I win, can they just ship the books to the address provided? If not, with this comment is my email address; hopefully it can be added. Thanks.

    Perhaps next year items that only ship to the continental US can be listed on the US list rather than the UK & Europe list? It is rather misleading to list items on the EU list when if you win it and happen to live in the EU you aren’t going to get the item. If not it would be good if at the top of such listings it said in bold capital letters where the item shipped to, if it was not the region it was listed in.

    The previous report found the economy had jogged along at a “measured” pace. In the current Beige Book, the Fed highlighted areas of improvement, most notably in the real estate sector and consumer spending, although manufacturing was more mixed.The MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS added 0.1 percent, after falling in the past two [url=http://www.christianlouboutinshoesforsaleonline.com/]christian louboutin shoes sale[/url] sessions, pulled higher by a surge in Australian shares .AXJO, which rose 1 percent to a 20-month high. Australian employment surprisingly contracted by 5,500 in December, bolstering the odds for another interest rate cut. The prospect of further policy easing boosted local shares but sent the Australian dollar down to session lows of $1.0534 from $1.0560 before the data.
    They said that in the Republican-led House of Representatives, getting a vote [url=http://www.christianlouboutinoutletshoesonline.com/]Christian Louboutin Shoes[/url] on any gun legislation could be difficult. And in the Democrat-led Senate, they said, it all depends on Reid, who as majority leader decides what legislation makes it to the floor. As recently as Sunday, Reid expressed doubt about an assault weapons ban and suggested that expanding background checks would be a more realistic goal. “Is (a ban on assault weapons) something that can pass the Senate? Maybe,” Reid said in an interview with a PBS television affiliate in Las Vegas.
    Until now, Obama had done little to change America’s gun culture. But just days before his second inauguration, he appears determined to champion gun control in his next term, which also will be dominated by debt and spending fights with Congress and a likely debate over immigration reform. His plan calls on Congress to renew a prohibition on assault weapons sales that expired in 2004, require criminal background checks on all gun purchases, including closing a loophole [url=http://www.cheapchristianlouboutinshoesonline.net/]Cheap Christian Louboutin Shoes[/url] for gun show sales, and pass a new federal gun trafficking law – long sought by big-city mayors to keep out-of-state guns off their streets. He also announced 23 steps he intends to take immediately without congressional approval. These include improving the existing system for background checks, lifting the ban on federal research on gun violence, putting more counselors and “resource officers” in schools and better access to mental health services.
