5 Things We Learned This Week-#81 (shopping, nutrition, words, twins)


Shopping

Gerard just discovered the Animal Rescue Site button on our left sidebar and clicked on it and was pleased to discover a store that if he purchased something, it helps out some animals!  He bought a shirt.  Why not click on it and check it out when you leave our blog.

Cereal Nutrition

In Sunday's PLAIN DEALER article, Truth in cereal ads is just a sweet dream by Connie Schultz, Gerard found a cool site that ranks cereal by nutritional value and guess what--the kind we eat was all low on the list! Shredded Wheat was ranked as most nutritional and Multi-Grain Cheerios that was recommended by Jillian, the trainer on "The Biggest Loser" show scored only 50.  At least we don't eat any of the bottom 10.  Check out Yale University's nutrition ratings at cerealfacts.org.  Related post:  How Nutritious Is The Cereal Your Family Eats?    

Cleveland Indians

The Cleveland Indians is the only Major League Baseball team to trade their opening day pitchers three years in a row! At least they beat the Red Sox!

What's a Kerfuffle?

When visiting Heather's Blog-o-rama, I learned that a "kerfuffle" is a loud disorderly disturbance or tumult. I guess I could we have a kerfuffle going on here whenever a dog walks by our house. Abby barks and the cats both take off running. Have you heard this word before?

Twin Telepathy

When reading Two Little Girls In Blue by Mary Higgins Clark, I discovered there really is such a thing as twin telepathy. Twins can sense things that are happening to their twin and in this book, could even communicate with each other although separated. It was a great book. You can see my review of it if you click the link.

One of the physicians I work with uses the word "kerfuffle" all time. I just thought it was something she made up. Too funny. Thanks for the enlightenment.

I have heard the word kerfuffle before, but we never use that word. It's a funny word.

I always wondered what a kerfuffle was...

I just love the word "kerfuffle" I'll have to go back and reread Anne of Green Gables for more words :) :) The book by Mary Higgins Clark sounds interesting. I'm reading Surrender the Heart..book one in the Surrender to Destiny series by Mary Lu Tyndal...it's Christian historical fiction :) :) It's great!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

I just love learning new words. I also love knowing useless facts (as my husband calls them) and I am a huge base ball fan; so thanks for that fact.
I have something going on at my blog you may want to check it out.
Happy weekend!

I haven't heard of kerfuffle before but I'll always picture Abby barking and the cats running when I think of it! We have a kerfuffle around here if the doorbell rings!

Kerfuffle is so funny isn't it? I read Heather's blog regularly and it's delightful! I love Mary higgins clark and I have read that book. I am married to a twin and it's so true. They are identical and at times can feel each other's pain, so bizarre! We are already hooked up to that animal rescue site. Love that they donate just for clicking every day!! Have a great weekend!

Blessings,
Jill

Hi! Just stopping by from the Blog Hop. I like the concept of Friday Fragments a lot! Sometimes you really need something like that to sum up all the little quirky things you want to say at the end of a week. :) Thanks also for checking out my blog (www.adventuresinparenting.me).
Have a great weekend!

Wow, looked at all the cereals and their rank. Time to move up, I think. We occasionally eat shredded wheat, always with frosting. It's a start, right?
