7 Things I Learned This Week #75

Snail Mail

Have you heard of the snail mail project?
If you like getting non-junk mail and enjoy brightening others day with a card or letter, you should check out this snail mail project at Putting The Fun In Dysfunctional.

Abby's Foster Mom

I learned that Abby's foster mom will be at "Meet Your Best Friend" at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo tomorrow from 10-4 and we'll get to see her again. She will be there with her Canine Lifeline group which she started up shortly after she brought Abby to us.  Canine Lifeline does not have a shelter.  All the dogs are in foster homes waiting to find their forever home. 

Host Your Own Talk Show

Over at He Said, She Said Camera Shy I learned that Oprah and Mark Burnett are searching for the next big talk show host.  Worth checking out if this is something you always wanted to do.  You need to submit a video and go to a live casting call.  Get details here:  Oprah Wants To Hear From You.  Even if you don't want to try out, you can go and vote for the video you like best.  I think Helene at I'm Living Proof That God Has A Sense Of Humor should go for it. 

Obesity and Diet: Japan vs. U.S.

At I watched a very interesting video comparing how the Japanese eat to how Americans eat. No wonder Japan's obesity rate is just 3% (the lowest in the world) compared to the U.S. at 30%. Japan must doing something right. I'll be doing a post about this soon but in the meantime, you should watch the video.

June Shelter Cat Contest

I found out that Sparkle, a blogging cat, is having a contest to win his book: Dear Sparkle, Advice From One Cat To Another. To enter, just leave a paragraph in the comments about your adoption story at My June Shelter Cat Contest.


Today I discovered The Sweetest Thing at Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. It's a lovely post about a boy and his dog that received 400 comments! The most I ever got on a post is 20 something. This is just a wonderful thing to me that people take time to comment on such a light, wholesome post such as this.

Multiple Intelligence Quiz

Over at Lost in a Sea of Blogs I found a Multiple Intelligence Quiz that of course I had to check out because I love quizzes.  I scored highest in Intrapersonal (Myself Smart), second in Number Smart & Word Smart followed closely by Nature Smart.  Here's my results:

Gerard scored the highest possible in both Intrapersonal (Myself Smart) and Kinaesthetic (Body Smart), second in Naturalistic (Nature Smart). Here's his results:
