4Things I Learned This Week--#72

Kids Bowl Free All Summer

At 1 Prince and 3 Princesses I learned about a free summer bowling program for kids. Certain bowling centers across the USA and Canada are offering two free games of bowling every day to kids all summer long! Just go to to sign them up!

Rainforest Favorite

When I asked my 5th grade boys Sunday School class what their favorite Rainforest animal was, I was surprised they said it was the poisonous frogs.  My favorite ones to watch are the otters.  I also find the python fascinating when he's on the move.

Grease Stains

At Apartment Therapy I learned a cool tip on how to remove grease stains: simply rub chalk onto greasy stains and the chalk powder will absorb the grease, making the stain easily removable by the laundry soap in the wash.

No Sales

I went to order some more author copies of my book and learned that none sold since the beginning of the year. It looks like Mountain Woman and me are the only ones who buy it. It's a bit depressing.

My boy (a kindergartener) is obsessed with poison dart frogs! I think it's kind of cool ... they ARE really beautiful :)

My best friend told me once that if you dont have time to wash your hair you can put some baby powder in it and it will keep you from looking like you have the greasies. Kind of the same idea? :)

Aww, sorry about your book. Link me up and I'll see if I can change that :))

Happy weekend, frag sister :)

Oh, I just saw the book info in your masthead. Sorry. :}

I did not know that about grease stains. I'm getting some chalk the next time I go shopping. Thanks.

Have a terrific day and weekend Karen. :)

Cat: Glad it was a helpful tip for you.

Clew: Those frogs are very pretty. They are so tiny though, sometimes it is hard to find them in the exhibit! The baby powder in your hair may help with the greasies, but wouldn't it look white?

Sandee: Yeah, that chalk tip was news to me too. I never heard of that before.
