4 Things I Learned This Week-Part 29


At our SonRock Camp Vacation Bible School at Parma Heights Baptist Church this week, I have learned some interesting facts about moose:
* They like to eat twigs.
* They can run up to 35 mph
* They are fiercely protective of their young.
* They grow new antlers every summer.
* They can kick in all directions.
* They can swim up to 6 mph and ten miles without stopping.

Dogs as Shark Bait

When reading Just a Thought, I learned that on an island off Africa, in order to help with the overpopulation of dogs and cats they are feeding them to sharks! This horrified me to think of this. The article about it is at National Geographic News.

Social Media Sites

In the CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER I read that the government of China has blocked out popular social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. Glad I don't live in China.

EntreCard Toolbar gone!

After updating my Firefox browser to 3.5 I found out that the Entrecard Toolbar is not compatible with it so now I lost it. It takes much longer to do EC drops now and I miss not having the advertising button, and seeing the number of drops I did all on the toolbar. Also miss not being able to drop on my favorites quickly anymore. If I want to drop on my favorites now, I have to do it through my Entrecard page and clicking on them takes me to the profile and not the site so that's two clicks now to get there--forget that! I sure hope they will fix this somehow to work with the updated version of Firefox. I contacted Firefox through their support and was told it's an Entrecard issue. Hmpf!

I have seen lots of similar posts about the EC toolbar. I haven't upgraded to the new Firefox yet because I just don't want to lose my toolbar. I remember how difficult it was to add favorites and access favorites before the toolbar. Why do upgrades so often mean that less features seem to work?

The National Geographic story about using cats and dogs as shark bait was horrifying! I hope exposing the practice will cause something to be done about it.

that's why I'm glad that when I backed up my computer that I saved the 3.0 to disc.then i just open the my computr icon,opened the C drive,opened program files deleted the firefox fox file,that copied my old 3.0 fire fox file in place of the 3.5 firefox and than I was able to still use the entre card toolbar.

I've heard about dogs and cats being used as shark bait and that just makes me so sick to my stomach. It's so unfathomable to me and so, so sad.

We haven't upgraded to 3.5 so are still on 3.0 but thanks for the info - we won't be upgrading!

I was horrified to read about feeding dogs and cats to sharks. How cruel.
Glad I don't live in China either because I sure would miss Facebook.
I stopped dropping Entrecards and when I checked Google Analytics today, my viewers had actually increased. Can't figure that out.
And, loved the info on moose. We have one living in our woods and he comes to the edge of the fields. They are so amazing.
Thanks for all the helpful information you do each week.
