When I was working with a Jr. High group back in the early 90's, I met a jr. high girl who made a big impression on me because of her kindness and sensitivity even at that young age.

She has since grown up and helped to start isanctuary, ... to help women in India who have been rescued from human trafficking (commercial sexual exploitation).

Please go here: http://isanctuary.org/index.html to buy jewelry to support these women, find out more about it, or see if there is a way you can help!

Tell your friends :)

overheard in 2nd grade

"You know what? Last year I asked for Santa to get my Mom pregnant and now she's going to have a baby!"

I needed a new quiz ;)

Your result for Reincarnation Placement Exam...

Starfleet Crewperson

56% Intrigue, 54% Civilization, 63% Humanity, 61% Urbanization.

As Mister Spock would say: Fascinating. It seems you've managed to hit the edge of the curve on all metrics. An extraordinary life is almost certain.

According to your answers, you want it all, you want a lot of it, and you're willing to do what it takes to get it! Adventure! Romance! Technology! Challenge! You love civilization. You like people. You love the complications and joys of a big, weird crowd of humans plus lots of other beings wandering into dangerous and complicated corners of the galaxy.

There is an ideal place for you, and you are ideal for it: Welcome to the crew of the starship Enterprise. Captain Kirk would have welcomed you aboard himself, but his head was too big to fit in the landing bay.

My turn to select a book for book club

Anyone have any suggestions of something you really enjoyed reading?



I'm just saying.

I'm also saying, What a strikingly beautiful woman Palin is! Much cuter than Biden ;)

You Are Chardonnay

Fresh, spirited, and classic - you have many facets to your personality.

You can be sweet and light. Or deep and complex.

You have a little bit of something to offer everyone... no wonder you're so popular.

Approachable and never smug, you are easy to get to know (and love!).

Deep down you are: Dependable and modest

Your partying style: Understated and polite

Your company is enjoyed best with: Cold or wild meat

How much caffeine?

I wonder how much caffeine it would take to turn on "super-cleaning" mode?????

Falling of the Complaint-free wagon

This past spring, I challenged my class (on a purely volunteer basis) to try to go for a period of time without complaining (see: http://www.acomplaintfreeworld.org/). This was NOT because they were complainers, but to go with some other stuff we were learning. To help with this we had these rubber bracelets that you take off every time you complain and switch to the other wrist.
cynicism galoreCollapse )
