abundance...

after the bountiful table of yesterday,i sit here visiting blogs & sipping my favorite coffee, still full (if you can believe it). in my blog-weaving i found a new read & yet another reminder to feel gratitude for the abundance. bella mocha (a fellow haiku writer on one deep breath) mentioned a site...free rice...which i had previously found on bleeding espresso.
as they both note, this site can be addictive. while you are testing your vocabulary (& possibly showing your great skills to your family & friends ;), you are helping alleviate world hunger. for every word you correctly choose, 10 grains of rice are donated through the United Nations. the rice is paid for by the advertisers you see at the bottom of the screen. if you like words, you can't go wrong here...unless you inadvertantly lose an hour or so playing the game!
if you are wallowing in abundance today, why not take a moment or two~~ maybe even skip lunch~~ to donte rice & boost your brain. also please take a few moments to explore related sites...
poverty.com ~ sister site of free rice

United Nations World Programme ~ they distribute the rice

30 days of thanks...gratitude for the internet & those who make it a place of peace, hope & joy (you know who you are ;)

Oh I just love new blog finds. I wish I had more time to stroll around the NaBloPoMo randomizer...I got hooked on that one evening and I came up for air after a few HOURS ;)
