Hi YP lovelies,
So I’ve been thinking…
What kinds of things can we do together that:
a) Beat the pants of of the Global Financial Crisis ("TM") and all its ugly constraints and cutbacks.
b) Create a fantastic opportunity for us all to get together and virtually mingle – no matter how widely flung we may be around this big blue planet. And...
c) Maybe even do something good for those less fortunate?
Hmmm, a tough ask – but I’ve had some ideas and I'd very much like your feedback.

1. A YP Craft Club. Now I happen to know that a lot of you are quite handy with a pair of needles and a ball of wool, or the trusty Janome, or other crafty tools and bits and bobs, and listening to the radio the other morning, I was inspired by an Australia-wide group who knits for charities. So I got to thinking, maybe we could do something similar and pool our creative skills to make soft toys, blankets, etc for those in need of a cuddly friend or such. (If you must ask, I'm a dab hand at scarfs).
2. My second idea was to start a monthly Book Club. I'll present three titles of the same genre each month in a poll – and everyone can vote on which book to read for the following month. The book with the highest amount of votes wins. We could vary the genres each month (fiction, non-fiction, crime, autobiography, etc), maybe organise a live chat session/s to discuss the book in real time, and everyone can contribute their thoughts in a dedicated book blog..

So what do you think YouPlayers? I'm after critical feedback on these ideas – and I also want ideas from YOU!
