FoodPool - The charity I founded to help get fresh garden produce to food pantries. Gardener's helping people in need. Who will YOU feed today?
Acorn Landscaping - Andy Packer and Acorn Landscaping did an awesome job on my garden. Highly recommended.
The Hillside Gardeners of Montclair - The Hillside Gardeners of Montclair is a gardening group in the Montclair district of Oakland, California. I created their web site, and my garden was featured on the tour in May 2011.
Telegraph Ministry Center - The first two FoodPools in Oakland both take their produce to the food pantry at the Telegraph Ministry Center. To futher assist them, I created their web site.
The Lakeshore Neighborhood Plant Exchange - Twice a year a free event where people swap plants. Woo hoo! I am a volunteer and have a great time every time.
UC Berkeley Botanic Gardens - I love our local botanic gardens. It really is impressive.
The Sigal Museum - My family originally settled in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania when they came over from "the old country." The Sigal Museum of Northampton County History and Geneology is housed in what was Sigal's clothing store in Easton, Pennsylvania.
Charity Navigator - Learn about the non-profits you give to. CharityNavigator is a super resource to find out about the charities that you donate to (you do donate to charities, dont you?) Go here to learn that the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society uses an astonishing 98% of its revenue to actually protect wildlife! Another similar site is the GuideStar. This site used to be good, but now everything one really wants to see requires a very expensive subscription.
The Excellence Series and
21st Century Leadership
were designed to help people produce excellence in their lives. These series of courses have been the most important thing
I have done in my life (strong words, I know.) Their history and who is now offering them is a bit complex. Originally a man named Randy Revell,
possesing of an amazing insight into human behavior, created
The Excellence Series. This set of courses was offered for many years,
but in the late '90's Randy decided stop presenting these classes. Instead, he created
21st Century Leadership, a
class which combined and revamped the ideas from the Excellence Series.
A group of graduates from Excellence Series decided that they wanted to see the earlier courses continue, so they incorporated The Excellence Foundation, purchased the material from Context Associated, and resumed the teaching of the original Excellence Series.
Sadly, in 2004, Randy Revell died. After Randy's death, Phil Holcomb, co-creater of 21st Century Leadership continued the teaching of the course through a new group: Extraordinary Learning. Though the web site for Context Associated still exists, 21st Century Leadership is now offered by Extraordinary Learning.
Having attended both Excellence Series and 21st Century Leadership , I can say with all honesty that they are extraordinary programs which can produce incredible value in people's lives, regardless of what entity is offering the classes.
The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society - The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has been called the "Earth First of the oceans." Sea Shepherd actively defends the defenseless creatures of the sea. Their activities are not for the faint of heart, but are an important step in saving what is left.
My friend who likes to be known as "Jake Von Slatt" has been doing some truly amazing projects in his garage. Everything from attaching an old AT&T Bell Telephone handset to a cell phone, to creating a wild looking "steampunk" keyboard for his computer, to building his own steam powered car. He has two sites to tickle your curiosity: www.VonSlatt.com and www.SteamPunkWorkshop.com.
KMO - KMO (aka my friend Kevin) is an artist, thinker, and finder of great quotes. His Quote Of The Day mailing list has kept me fascinated for years. Be sure to check out his long running comic strip, which is nothing less than thought-provoking.
Linus Gelber's "Home Office Records" - Linus and I went to that wacky "H" college together years and years ago. Once upon a time we were the voices of "The deGelb and Mr. Andrew show" on WHRB. Unfortunately, Home Office Records is no longer an ongoing concern, but the site is still there to document the artists they promoted.
Solutek Corporation - My father's photographic chemical company finally goes online.
