Cookies for our soldiers 

Strolling around Princeton this afternoon, having dropped the TigerHawk daughter off at a birthday party, I happened upon a table staffed with Girl Scouts hawking cookies. Since we have already done our bit for this year's cookie drive I was prepared to cruise by without another thought, but then I saw a sign that offered to send any cookies I might buy to our soldiers in Iraq. They even had sticky labels so we could write a little note for each box.

Ten bucks later, three more boxes of Girl Scout cookies will be winging their way to Fallujah, or wherever. And anybody who has ever had Girl Scout cookies know that they are manufactured to stay "fresh" for a long time, so even if the Girl Scout - Pentagon interface isn't functioning smoothly we can estimate they will remain edible many moons hence.

It's nice to think about a tired, homesick soldier eating a Girl Scout Cookie.

For something decidedly less heartwarming, come over and bathe in the inky snarkness of my Sunday News Roundup

Hi there,

Incase it is of any interest to you, a while back i found a british labels company who print many types of sticky labels for a really low price, if interested may be worth taking a look at their website.
