What Kind of Glasses Do You Have?

Loops: Who was that?
I: The eye doctor. He helps people know what kind of glasses to get.
Loops: What kind of glasses do you have?
I: My glasses help me to see better.
Loops: Oh. My glasses have Shabbos in them.

... because hers are sunglasses, and I often tell her of a Friday that
when it gets dark outside, it will be Shabbos.

Sweaters for Penguins

When I heard about this, I thought it was wonderful. I'm trying to pin down what it is about this -- aside from the ultra-cute-factor --  that I like so much.
I think what I like is that it is a successful grassroots effort. People from all over the world got in on it. It's a simple, creative solution to a problem. It was effective. And it allowed for originality.
