Comments from a newsletter reader, received by e-mail:

I was interested in your article on greeting cards, and would like to add a couple of addenda.

In early January, go through all Christmas cards. Copy down any address changes. Extract photos and either put in album (if you want to save) or, as you suggest, scan them into the computer. If there is a special message from a special person, keep that in a file folder if you think you'll ever reread it. The cards you can dump in a paper recycling bin, or, if you don't mind cutting off the backs, send to the following address for crafts at a children's home in Nevada:

Christmas cards
St. Jude's Ranch for Children
100 St. Jude's St.
Boulder City, NV 89005

[Jeri's note: Please check whether or not St. Jude's is accepting the cards.]
