Row progress

Posted by stuff4sam on September 27, 2007

The four men in their boat should soon be nearing the end of their epic journey if their predictions are anything to go by. They said that they would be at Putney at 7pm tonight. We have not heard anything but hope that they are faring well. It must be hard to text with cold blistered fingers. We hope there is a stiff drink waiting for them at the end to warm them up!

Thanks to everyone who has supported them by making a donation to stuff4sam. We’ll be counting everything up and making an annoucement about how much their adventure has raised when they are back on dry land. There’s a strong possibility we’ll have to dust off our old friend the totaliser!

Hi Sam from Pennsylvania and New York

Posted by stuff4sam on September 27, 2007

Hi Sam,

we went to America with the photographers to celebrate Maggie’s 60th birthday. We visited her house near Pittsburgh and while we were there went to an amazing museum. It was a house called Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright, designed in the 1930s. The place lived up to its name as it rained very very hard!

After three days in Pittsburgh, we went to New York. It was very exciting being somewhere with so many huge buildings. Our hotel had 16 floors which was tiny in comparison to the Empire State Building with its 102 floors!

We did lots of walking around the city stopping for breaks to eat interesting food. Our trip produced hundreds of photos and some interesting sound recordings (which we look forward to playing you).

Hope to see you soon

Books coming out of our ears!

Posted by stuff4sam on September 27, 2007

Another trip to the bank with heavy coins is the result of a prolific amount of book selling recently. Whether it was the recent rubbish weather inspiring weekends with a good book, a serious amount of de-cluttering or some invigorated commitment to stuff4sam, we don’t care! £176 was safely deposited in the account. We’re always amazed how the 50ps add up.
