* Cows and Skiis: More items donated for Kijiji cow fundraising

Can cows ski?

Probably not but giraffes may be able to and if you know the reason why - leave a comment.

Speaking of cows and skiis, it's a logo on this maple syrup bottle made on the Robb family farm in Battleboro Vermont.

If you're into collecting cow memorbilia, you can order the Maple Syrup here.

The Net is grand -- See for yourself that giraffes can ski:

Kijiji Donations -- Sorry No Giraffes for Sale But There are Skiis

Before Xmas, I received items from Doris and Gaye to sell for the cow. I had also had a few books and posted those. Almost everything has sold and my next job is post a few things from Mia and a photo of the downhill skis in the garage. I spotted them the other day and remembered setting them aside in the summer to see when the snow was on the ground for the cow.

Thanks for donating stuff to sell - it all helps towards these cows. $32 was collected from Kijiji sales for Birdie, cow #24.

Well we have snow and great skiing weather so I'll get these up soon I hope.

* Shopper's Friends Come Through for the Cow - woo hoo 20,000 bonus points

Thanks to everyone who signed up for Shoppers' Tell a Friend. 20,000 bonus points are in my account which means $40 on redemption day for donations. Most of the Shoppers bonus points go to local charities but if you happen to have something you want to buy at Shoppers let me know. I'll use my redemption to buy it, and you can pay me and I'll pop it in the cow fund.

Speaking of cows - we're on cow number 26 named Cadence

Today thanks to Rita and Wilf -- a fun soccer grandmother who knows how to cheer - I picked up bottles for recycling. Today's recycling haul was $24.40 putting us over half way to Cadence.
