alternative gift ideas, saving the bay, etc., dance in SF

Very heartening to see seagulls flying in a clear sky today given the plight of seabirds since the spill. If you're looking for an alternative way to give this season, may I suggest what I found in my mail box today:
For the next two weeks, Intel will match all contributions to Save The Bay - dollar for dollar - up to $20,000.
Just weeks after the largest oil spill in San Francisco Bay in over a decade, this gift comes at an especially critical time.
Please, give your gift today - and double its impact! (

Pal and sometime collaborator Deborah Slater will be teaching an interesting class on Dance in the Bay Area, starting in February @ Osher, SF State Downtown Campus, 835 Market Street, 6th Floor, SF, CA 94105 Course #: CE 8807: Section: N01: Schedule #: 28028 For registration go to or call 415-405-7700.

and Conspiracy of Beards is playing on Friday @ Noe Valley Ministry. A cappella Leonard Cohen. If you haven't seen this crew of male singers (most members of other musical projects)...which reminds me Noise Pop tickets are on sale already. Nonetheless, my old-school soundtrack continues: For whatever reason Neil Young tunes have been in my mind all morning ...
