Today is day 26 of the June Food Stamp Challenge and I want my readers to take a detour over to Julia Park-Tracey’s Modern Muse blog. Julia, an Alameda, California Editor, poet, mother, step-mother, Compact member and internet buddy of mine is participating in the Food Stamp Challenge with a vengeance. Not only is she doing the challenge, but she’s writing witty and insightful blog posts that are blowing mine out of the water. (I’m aware that my “Poor me, I’m sick” columns are less than gripping. *Cough*)

Oh heck, who am I kidding?! Just CLICK HERE to read all of Julia’s food stamp posts. Any woman who tries to get away with labeling a chocolate bar a “medical expense” is my kind of girl.
