Unrelated

These two links are entirely unrelated, but each of them might just make life better, in their own way.

First, Husband has turned me on to http://www.rainymood.com/. It is the sound of a soft thunderstorm, over which you can play your own music, if you so choose. I cannot play music while I complete editing work, but to have such wonderful, calming white noise in the background is a treat. The only downside: frequent bathroom breaks...

Second, Gizmodo featured a wonderful post about a new site, Philanthroper, yesterday. As the site explains, "The base concept is this: You donate $1, they make sure 99% of that gets to the charity, not into their pockets." Awesome! For someone who has become disillusioned with the multitude of mail that I (continue to) receive after donating to several worthy causes recently, at least I can feel assured that my donation through this site will reach the intended cause rather than the postal service's coffers.

Happy Wednesday!
