5 Things We Learned This Week 5 of 2012 (food, charity, birds, news, celebrities)

Friday Fragments is hosted my Half-Past Kissin' Time for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post. We like to share what we've learned each week.
  1. Einstein's

    Einstein's sells little sized doggie bagels! Abby enjoyed her first one ever this week:  It's A Doggie Bagel.  It was cute, about a quarter size of the regular kind.
  2. Cat Appreciation Month

    Thanks to Sparkle the Cat, I learned that February is Cat Appreciation Month.  So, that is why we are choosing Caroline's Kids Pet Rescue for our charity for February to donate 50 centers per legitimate comment on our blogs. Caroline's Kids is a houseful of all kinds of cats who need homes.
  3. Count Birds

    Over at 365 Cat Ladies and Friends: Birds Count I learned that in the U.S. and Canada the annual "Great Backyard Bird Count" begins Feb. 17-20. There are really instructions on how to participate! I never heard of this before, have you?
  4. Jim Tressel

    Former OSU football coach, Jim Tressel, got another coaching job for Akron earning $200,000 a year! I say good for him.
  5. Guide Dogs

    Chloe, a guide dog, competes in high school athletics. I think this is so cool, both for Sami, the blind girl, and Chloe! That girl has courage! Read all about it: Blind runner Defies Odds Thanks to Guide Dog. I found this story when playing www.freekibble.com

Thanks for all the cool links! They all look like they are worth investigating. I always click on your link first to see what you've learned this week! (smile)

I had not heard the Jim Tressel news...that is indeed interesting.

They had a bird count event in our town a few weeks ago because they were counting for a specific bird but now I don't remember which one it was! I guess they'll count again later this month anyway!

Tressel's not coaching. It's some VP administrative position not related to coaching or sports in any way. They would have had to "show cause" to hire him as a coach and would've faced other penalties.

Thank you for sharing that site on the bird counting. I can't wait to implement this into our homeschool this month!
