I will be posting at Blogger from here on out. Find me at spiritualflux.blogspot.com now.
Check out Free Rice. They’ve come up with a very creative way to get food to the poor. Basically, they give you a glorified vocab test (don’t let that scare you away), and for every correct answer you get, they give 10 grains of rice to be distributed by the U.N. They raise the money for the rice through the advertising on the site. The first time I went on, I played long enough to raise 3,000 grains. As of yesterday, the site has raised almost 1.9 billion grains of rice.

Here’s an ad from November of 1982 for your amusement:
What a difference 25 years makes…
Found on adflip – a cool site that has a very large archive of print ads.
Check out this video called “Did You Know 2.0”. It’s hard to fathom what the world will be like for my kids as they get older. And I thought VCR’s were high tech when I was a kid.

October 1997 – I was in my sophomore year at Pensacola Christian College, and I had been dating Mandy for a month. Wow, it’s been 10 years. God is good. My biggest concern would definitely have been taking Greek.
October 1987 – Hmmm…. 9 years old. I guess I would have just started the 4th grade, and I probably still thought that girls had cooties. My biggest concern was probably the amount of candy I would be getting for Halloween.
October 1977 – I would have been busy kicking my mom’s ribs with about 4 months to go. Biggest concern: bustin’ out.
