Poodles, Pen and Ink

Letters & Journals is having a giveaway! One lucky winner will win this bottle of ink (blue black), Tsunami pen (and refill) from Richard at My Ink Pen and a set of 8 poodle cards and stickers from Poodle & Cat (formerly Haley's Handmades).
One winner will be selected on Sun. March 18. Here are the rules:

1. Contest is open to all and ends at midnight on Sat. March 17.

2. Leave a comment. Be sure to include your name or email so I can identify you/announce you in the blog post. The winner will have one week to notify me of their mailing address. If you want to be proactive, you can email me your mailing address here and be done with it.

3. You can have one comment (entry) for each mention in your blog, Tweet, Facebook or other social networking promotion you do. Just include the link to each update with your comment. Remember that each comment should be separate, so if you do a Twitter mention and a facebook mention they would be two comments = two entries.

4. Thank you!

Letter from Warren Buffett

I've made a goal in 2012 to send thank-you cards and notes of appreciation to people and businesses I admire. Writing these is my way of spreading kindness and joy.

Sometimes they write back. Just ask Pen Pal from Northeastern Colorado who wrote a blog last Oct about receiving a response from the author Clive Cussler.

Like Warren Buffett. For many years I have admired Mr. Buffett for his practicality, his business sense and his money savvy as well as his down-to-earth personality (from what I've read). I also happen to agree with many of his political opinions. So I wrote a brief thank you note, googled his business address and sent the note to him. A month or so later, I received this response.

"Jackie- Thanks for your note. It made my day. Best wishes, Warren E. Buffett."
