How Many Grains Have You Donated Today?

I saw this post at Jessica Sprague's blog and was intrigued. I followed her link to FREERICE.COM. For each word that one gets right, they donate 20 grains of rice to the UN to help end world hunger.

If you are a wordsmith, then this will be easy. Do you know what omphaloskepsis means? Well, I don't. As it turns out, it means navel-contemplation. Why would I know that? I would have to be like "George Costanza" from Seinfeld to be able to work that into a conversation. If I mentioned that word to anyone, they would think I am crazy. LOL

Anyway, give it a is for a good cause.

First Snow of the Season - Manu Zimmerman

First Snow of the season - Kaylie couldn’t wait to go out to play. She piled it up, she stepped on it and finally made snow angels. The snow got here late this year, but well worth the wait. Feb. 22, 2008.

Toot - Someset Digital March 2008 Premier Issue

Click on preview to enlarge, if you want to see a closeup.
My Monarch Butterfly appears in the premier issue of Somerset Digital Magazine. Woo Hoo! I am so excited! 2285

Toot - Feb./March 2008 Somerset Memories

Click on the preview to enlarge it and to see it up close.

My layout titled "A Daughter Is" was published in the February/March 2008 issue of Somerset Memories.

I went to Borders today and found it! We were excitedly looking through the magazines which made Kaylie giggle with delight. A man next to us became aware that it was Kaylie in the magazine and felt like he was among "celebrities"; his words, not mine. Obviously, he could see how thrilled Kaylie was and played along. Sometimes strangers can be so kind.

Belated Toot

A belated toot...
Did I tell you that this layout appeared in the February 2008 issue of Digital Artist Magazine?
