Roundup: July

by Nora Dunn on August 7, 2008

It worked miracles with my jewelry (some of which I thought was irreparably covered in gunk and would never shine again). And when I discovered a few dozen more ways to use toothpaste, I just had to write about it.

Ethical Traveler
In the wake of our Burma Relief project, I was contacted by Jenny Williams at Ethical Traveler, who asked to write a piece on Kelly & I! I of course obliged.
