Thursday Thirteen.....

1. Authentic Lebanese Tabouli. I was supposed to find tabouli recipes as one of my nutrition goals for a class Husband and I are taking. This is the one we are going to try.

2. The chances of another recession are getting greater. 

-----Carbon dioxide leak is to blame for a death at a McDonald's. I agree with the person who commented that there should be carbon monoxide detectors (and that they are very inexpensive). It seems like this tragedy could have been easily avoided.
-----Pesticide contamination constitutes illegal trespass? This case could set some interesting precedents regarding crops.

4. I like that Spring Grove Cemetery (Cincinnati) has "Grief to Peace" gatherings.


---A dinosaur that carried its young like a mammal.
---Dinosaur Food. A cookie recipe.

6. There is a song called "Origami Codpiece".....
---I don't think that would be very effective.
---Curse: May you play an aggressive game of dodge ball while wearing an origami codpiece. :-)
---Who puts their microwave on top of their refrigerator? I hope they are VERY careful with hot liquids. Space-saving vs. SAFETY. This is one idea to conserve on space that I will not be using...about as ridiculous as trying to use an origami codpiece. :-)

7. Angry Birds mooncakes

"A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station."

9. "Ultimate Toys for Super-Rich Boys"...some of them were not as frivolous as I thought they would be.

10. Journey of the Soul

11. California couple fined for holding Bible study in home.

12. A report that listed  the most corrupt members of Congress. 
" .....public perception suggests that members of Congress will become more corrupt the longer they stay in Washington....."

Yesterday,we went on a longer family walk than we have before. At the end, we came to an area where there was a lot of rain cloud and perhaps the biggest rainbow I have ever seen. Admired the rainbow for a while and then walked hurriedly home to avoid the rain. Rain was pretty.

Gumby made me do it, Officer!

Gumby calls it a robbery, clerk thinks it's a joke 
I would think it was a joke at first given the way the Gumby-dressed person was waving his arms around.

In My Life.....

-----Listened to a band called Eastern Block for the first time today. I like the song "Dark Age." I found out that Eastern Block is not specifically a Christian band but they are all Christians.
-----Had lots of porch time and went for a walk.
-----Did weeding in the side yards.
-----Kudos to Husband for helping to push a couple of heavy cars into storage.
-----We are making a Rhubarb Steak Sauce this evening. We made Steaks With Shallot Sauce recently but it wasn't something that would photograph well (received 10 out of 10 from Husband on taste, though).
-----Think it is good that I am now part of a twice daily prayer group.
