Margaret has alerted my to the Free Rice web site. This is a vocabulary game, but as you get correct answers you earn rice grains, which supposedly will be donated through The United Nations World Food Program. I have added a button/link to my side bar for this. I enjoy word games and hope it's true that they are donating rice.
Robin Ferrier had the privilege to hear a lecture by Regina Benson, a wonderful quilt artist. Be sure to check out all the pages (Close-Up, Inside, Distance, Social Commentary) to see all her quilts. I would love to see these works in person.
The Vancouver Olympics in 2010 are close to me, I mean that literally as Vancouver is about 30 miles north of Bellingham. They have recently unveiled the Mascots they picked for the Olympics, of course then I realized I'd never really noticed any of the other mascots from previous Olympics. I hope when the time comes I'll be willing to battle the crowds and long waits to see at least one Olympic event.
