The nuthatch is a wonderful image. I love the idea of sending DWJ
books, music and so forth. May I point out that Amazon.co.uk has wish
lists so we could set up a list of books and music, etc for DWJ and name
it DWJ wish list. That way, it should record when items have been
bought, and people could go to a link for the list and choose one to buy
and it would be mailed off to her. That would work for me. I wanted to
contribute before but I don't do PayPal...
