Touched by Angels? More like touched by greed!

If you live on Cape Cod, you've probably seen the tables set up in your local supermarket, or gotten the phone calls or mailings looking for donations, and you've probably given money to the charity group that calls themselves, "Touched by Angels".  You may have even attended one of their "charity events". 

I had given them money in the past, and as of a couple of weeks ago, when I got one of their mailings, I assumed they were still in business helping unfortunate families who had experienced incredible loss or hardship.  I happened to catch this video on local ch17 yesterday while channel surfing, and to say I'm horrified is an understatement.
Please take the time to watch this, and share it with everyone you know.

I hope the Attorney General's Office and our local District Attorney are going to do something about Gina and Chris Clark. They are obviously still in business, their website is still up accepting purchases and donations. Wouldn't all those sponsors like to know if their donations are really helping the people they were meant to, after this video has come out? 

Look, Touched by Angels is having a 50% off sale on gift certificates... must be in a hurry to get as much money as they can, before someone pulls the plug!

Look at all the good people who are sponsors... wouldn't one of our local lawyers like to take on a class action suite to make Gina and Chris Clark pay for anything they might have stolen from these good people on the premiss of a charity?

Wouldn't one of our local lawyers like to take on a class action suite to right the wrongs committed against the grieving families in the video?

I hope so, and I hope the Clarks pay a heavy price for anything criminal they may have done!

Siobhan's Gorey Tattoo

 I don't know if you noticed, or not, but Siobhan has a wicked cool tattoo of an Edward Gorey illustration on her upper right arm. Our local CapeCast gives some nice info on the origins of her tat, as well as, shows us some local fan excitement for our favorite Idol contestant - Siobhan. :)

GLBT Expo '10 with the PBG

Jeff and I are in the Big Apple this weekend for the GLBT Expo '10 at the Jacob K Javits Convention Center.

The weather is awesome, as you can see...

Jeff went to last years expo, but this is my first time, and I'm glad I came along. :)

We're helping to work the Provincetown Business Guild booth.

Robert Sanborn- PBG Tourism Director and Jeff Stranger- Sales with Plymouth & Brockton Buslines, and my hubby. :) 

Robert, Betsy from Bayside Betsy's and Nick - Executive Director of the PBG

I helped stuff the bags, and Jeff worked the floor, handing them out.

Of course, before I got down to work, I scoped out where the beer booth was...

and took some pics of other booths...

took in a little seminar with Pink Banana Media on Web 2.0 and Social Networking given by Matt Skallerud...

Then after my shift, I took some pics of the crowds...

I even got to schmooze with one of my favorite celebrities!

It was a long day, but a very fun day, and we'll be going back for a few more hours tomorrow. :)
Jeff is uploading more pics we took, up on the PBG fan page on Facebook

I think it's pretty awesome to have our local girl, Siobhan Magnus, take American Idol by storm!

I expect we'll see her talent take her to the top, and my fingers are crossed that she be, the NEXT American Idol!

Pretty little totes...

While browsing through Etsy- something I often do- I found the cutest little tote bags. :)

Hey look... the Cape & Islands never looked so good!
And, did I mention, this bag is customizable with your choice of state and color?

I'm lovin' this bag... thank goodness the little birdies are arriving back north... 
must mean it's Spring!

I must be crazy, but I'm already thinking about summer with this Anchors Away purse!

All these great bags came from Etsy seller La Lune Designs 
based out of Leavenworth, Kansas.
These awesome totes, bags and purses would look great right here on the Cape!
