7 Friday Fragments (news, gifts, plumpy'nut, Bible)


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. Here we go:

plumpy'nut

A child dies every 15 seconds from hunger and related causes, but World Vision is using plumy'nut (a high-protein paste resembling peanut butter) to save starving children. Your gift to help save starving children is multiplied 5 times thanks to grant funds. Watch this video to see how pumpy'nut and antibiotics saved Sabiou:


Musical Chairs

According to ESPN the Magazine, there is a musical chairs championship which had 1,200 participants!

Popes

I never knew a Pope could resign, did you?

Reporters

I think those CNN reporters who stood outside in blizzard conditions deserve a bonus!

Babies

Babies being born are at the lowest level since 1920 according to USA TODAY. Who will support the elderly population?

Valentine's Day

I was really surprised when I got this cute candy special delivery car on WEDNESDAY! I was so happy it wasn't flowers! It has chocolate covered pretzels, white frosted tiny pretzels with sprinkles, gummy hearts and individually wrapped chocolate hearts with a cute dog. We exchanged cards on Thursday and my sweet husband even had the pets give me cards. It's so cute, I love when he does things like that!  Got a cold on Valentine's Day again--had a bad cold our first Valentine's Day too!



Old Age

I've really enjoyed reading the book of Ecclesiastes these last couple weeks. For a good description of old age, read Ecclesiastes 11 12.  (Sorry about that. It's the first 5 verses of Chapter 12.)

I heard that about the low births... & with this also being the first generation that will die before their parent's age - its crazy what our world is turning into :(

I cant imagine that musical chair competition - It had to last for HOURS!!!!!

Amazing how they can help children so simply... & we live in a world of so much plenty

That is a cute delivery! Glad you enjoyed your Valentines Day and hope your cold goes away soon!

What a great Valentines gift. I'd have eaten all the goodies by now.

Sorry you have a cold. I hate that.

Have a fantastic day. ☺

musical chair competition - do you think it was hip-hop?
I've heard (accurate or not?) that as women become more educated they tend to have less children. Educated women, better family living conditions both would be good things. Over crowding with limited resources would be bad right?

I was thinking yesterday about the lack of children in the US. I was born at the end of the baby boomer's era. The buses were full. The schools were full. Sunday school, too. Now? It seems like I see groups of adults and old people with may one or two young children in tow. It used to be the opposite.

This is such a great idea for a blog post, we all have so many little things we want to say that won't fill a full blog post.
I found you via the blog hop and now follow you on GFC, would love for you to come by and visit my blog too, and if you like what you see it would be great if you followed back.
