a time for giving

"Professor Whitaker says the "core business of the university is not financially sustainable"." The reason for any university's being is teaching and research. If they don't fit into the economic model, what happens? [Prof Whitaker says, there'll be "some cuts" in courses (if the circle doesn't fit the square, make it fit)].

Once in christmas past, dad bought hugo a gift: a pig's ear. there was much revulsion all round, but hugo loved it. the ear was banned from the house, but for weeks afterwards you would find him in a corner, gnawing away. he never really had a girlfriend, but he loved that pig's ear.

I am doing research for e-books on original gift ideas. That is how I ran into your blog a time for giving. Do you have any brilliant suggestion for a Christmas gift for a wife by any chance? I already have several books done and posted at but I am looking to upgrade some of the ideas for Christmas gifts. Thanks.

Hi little,

I am a writer and I research gift ideas for e-books on original gift ideas for Christmas and other events like Valentine's, Easter etc. I also organize gift ideas per receiver, like for babies, for kids, for teens, for grandparents, for dog lovers, for him, for her, etc Or I organize them by category like romantic gifts and inexpensive gifts. In my research I also go through blogs that mention gifts and gift ideas or events like Christmas. That is how I came upon your blog this post. I would appreciate if you would share just one successful gift idea with me, for instance a Christmas gift for a mom. I hope that my question doesn't annoy you. And I apologize if it does. I thought if I'd just ask enough people I'd wind up with plenty of good ideas to share with others again. That is what networking is all about, right? Or let's call it the spirit of Christmas. Let me know if I can do something for you. You can find my free e-books with gift ideas here: God bless.
