Spider and Jeanne Robinson need help

If you are like me, reading has been, is, and will continue to be one of the things that provides immense satisfaction. As far back as I an remember, I have been enjoying the works of Spider and Jeanne Robinson. They have prompted smiles, laughter and yes, sometimes tears through the years with their work, but they are in need of a little bit of help at the moment.

This from

Beloved Hugo-award-winning writer, dancer and choreographer Jeanne Robinson (wife of Spider Robinson) has cancer, and it has taken a turn for the worse. Spider Robinson describes their financial situation as dire ("running on fumes") and so he's asking for cash to help them get through this. There's lots of ways to give, from bidding in a charity auction to attending a benefit concert to buying Spider's books. I've just sent them what I could spare -- Jeanne and Spider have given me so much pleasure and wisdom over the years, it was an honor. I hope that some of you who've been touched by them will do the same.

If you can, please find it in your hearts to do what you can.

PS. I’ll try and get an update about the garden and us soon, August was a bit difficult for me but its fall now, so new challenges :)

cheers
