    Hi, as often happens in Spark World I came across a comment of yours about the stimulus package that Trump signed in December. It did NOT include gender programs in Pakistan.
    There was a separate bill passed and signed that is explained below.
    "The legislation referred to in the claim funds $10 million in "gender programs," ranging from those focused on improving the health of mothers and their children to those tackling gender-based violence in Pakistan, according to the United States Agency for International Development, or USAID, which oversees much of the funding. In other words, the money is for real-world programs aimed at helping women in Pakistan, not for academic or sociological "gender studies."
    Views on any kind of foreign aid vary, but I thought I would clarify this one situation.
    Tracking down the original source is difficult in this social media world.

    Thank you so much for reading my blog. Fortunately, his doctor has said that they will find a good hospital, and DH sounds very upbeat on the phone. Accepting difficulties is surely much better for the BP than getting worked up.

    I hope you're managing to stay safe, well, and with a dash of sane thrown in, too!

    That is so funny about the Kentucky fried chicken! They’re free range so they might taste rather good!
