I just hauled 7 boxes of stuff out to the curb for BigBrother BigSister. A lot of it is clothing, plus some other random stuff. The house is a lot cleaner!!

It's Red Nose weekend here in UK. We've done our bit by buying Red Nose wines with their distinctive Damien Hirst label. -- see http://www.pinotage.org/2009/02/saam-pinotage-for-red-nose-red.html

That's a great write-up! We have "comic relief" here in the states - I think it's yearly, where they have various acts going on and you donate money. I never thought of it as being about a red nose, I wonder if that's in the UK only?

The actual name is Comic Relief, and the big event is Red Nose Day. Started in the UK in 1985, according to Wikipedia has inspired Comic Reliefs in several other countries.

Saw kids walking to school yesterday with red noses, hair dyed red, red wigs, costumes and one kid was wearing a pair of red dyed underpants on his head.

Wow that is too funny! We definitely never put red noses on in the US, you seem to have a fun time in the UK smile
