Something We Can All Do.....

Here's something we can all do to help make the world a better place, and it won't cost you a dime, just a little time once in a while, and maybe a dictionary. Monkeyfister posted this link to Freerice, and now I am, too. I just spent a hour on the site, and what a cool thing this is!

i'm glad that you noticed, and passed it on.

I played for hours... heck, I cheated, and broke out my dictionary with some of those more esoteric words.

Here's the real lesson that will make you cry so hard it'll make your roof leak...

Play for one hour. Note your rice grains. Go to the kitchen-- bring the kids-- and count out the grains that you made happen. Put them in a bowl or a jar.

You just fed somebody, perhaps a family far away, that much rice. Playing a word game.

I cheat occasionally too, but it's for a good cause and it never hurts to learn something.

I know it's not much, but it's better than nothing.
