May I direct your attention for a moment to that cute little fella (named Ike) in the sidebar to your right? He and his family are having a heck of a time right now and could really use some help. His big brother Sam was in my tinkering class and Ike came along to check out the scene once so I got to meet him... the cutest little Buddha boy, wise and wryly amused, you can tell. His mother is local Austin author Kari Anne Roy. This family has had some major MAJOR scares and Ike is currently in the hospital for the next two weeks at least. You can read more about Ike and his story here. Or just click on the little lad to donate money to Ike and his family. This is really a necessary time for the community to pull together and help this sweet sweet family through their time of crisis.
