Saturday TIdbits

Some interesting tidbits to help you thru - remember these are just forwards - be sure and check it out for yourself.

Enjoy - read what interests you and forget about the rest.



I do believe this is true - our bees are disappearing and so are our crops.




It is too late to set your clocks back - but did you change and check your batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors?

 


I think that is kind of a good idea. 



Do you want to find out if real peanut butter is better then reduced fat peanut butter?

Lots of good tidbits here! I'm still so annoyed with google. I'm about to ban all their products from my life if possible. Grrrr. Hope you have a terrific weekend!

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I like the pretty pink look you have decorated your blog with. The quote by Audrey Hepburn is a very good one! Hope you have a super Saturday!

Sandra said...

i love your new look, especially the eggs

My Journey With Candida said...

Happy Saturday to you Sandie. Cold and snowing here... wishing for spring!!

EM Illustrator said...

Great post, happy Saturday to you. I love the "springy" look at your blog. Am enjoying a long weekend here.
Big hugs,
Eva

Cranberry Morning said...

Interesting post, Sandie. And as far as Google Reader alternatives, I'm still trying to figure out switching to Google+ for my blog. No fun.

Have a wonderful weekend.♥

Love the tulips!

Optimistic Existentialist said...

That Einstein quote is very eye-opening. As far as the Google Reader thing - I admit to not knowing at all how this affects blogger. When we log into Blogger and see all of our blogs on the left - will that just disappear now?

Beth said...

Lots of good things to ponder today Sandie.

Have a wonderful day!

TexWisGirl said...

i think peanuts and nuts in general (if you're not allergic to them) are healthy fats. :) i eat lots of them.

Knitty said...

I love your background! Audry Hepburn really was a classy lady. I like that quote.

What an eye opener that story from China is, and how terribly sad. Attempting to buy some inexpensive items (plastic Easter eggs for example) or just looking at most labels in dollar stores and discount racks shows you how much is coming from China. I'm not trash talking the stores. We're in a mess here trying to stretch our own budgets. I try to make better choices but don't always succeed.

Munir said...

Your blog looks very pretty!
I am worried about proper shoes all the time, as I am diabetic. I feel bad for the lady, I hope that no body lets that happen to themselves.
I hope that you are doing good. Cheers!

Susannah said...

I really like the verse by Audrey Hepburn...just class...she was..!

The China article is so upsetting!

I love pink and I love your header and your blog...so nice for this time of year. Good job, Miss Chatty

Sandee said...

I like the child molester idea. A lot.

The last one is spot on too.

Have a terrific day. :)

Susan said...

Oh gosh, Sandie. There was lots of food for thought in that posting.

I'm so sad for the workers in China, especially the children.

But would refusing to buy products made in China HURT rather than HELP the people there?

Take care and have a good Saturday! Susan

Shelly said...

The child molester thing- spot on!!!

Paula said...

Interesting about the bees. As always you post the nicest entries.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I always love your posts! Hugs, Linda

jack69 said...

This is full of good info. Especiallyt he alternates to Google reader that I did not know was shutting down. Thinking I will go with 'Factly'. One of the four will win out I guess, I don't think all of them will survive. It is probablly a gamble. I will be waiting to see which most of my friends go with.
((HUGS)) from down here.
PS: Einstein is probably right. INteresting.

Betsy Adams said...

Great post and lots of good info, Sandie. Interesting about the peanut butter. I've never eaten reduced-fat peanut butter --but eat reduced-fat in other things...

LOVE LOVE LOVE your Easter blog look. The eggs are gorgeous... WOW!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Nonnie said...

Interesting info you have out out there. The story about the Chinese is very upsetting. I have tried to avoid purchasing things Made in China, but that doesn't really help those poor people, does it?
I confess my ignorance about Google Reader and read a few of the articles. I'm still not sure how that will affect my blog because I'm not that savvy with blogging.
Your cover photo is beautiful.

Inger said...

The quote by Einstein is really scary.

Betty Manousos said...

nice stuff as usual.
the story about the chinese is very upsetting;
i eat lots of nuts and i've always been a fan of peanut butter.

hope you're enjoying your weekend~

p.s. love your easter blog look!

Journeyin' Lady... said...

Your page is just SO cheerful and bright! Exactly right for the season!

Jackie said...

I've had my lip poking out about Google Reader closing since I found out about it. Research is on the way...and I appreciate the links you included.
I LOVE your header, Sandie!
Hugs to you and wishes for a beautiful weekend.
Love,
Jackie

Wanda's Wings said...

I absolutely love the one about child molesters. Your new look of your blog is so neat. I always enjoy coming here!

Ms. A said...

Love the one about the child molesters. Great idea!

Those feet... OH MY!

TARYTERRE said...

Think Einstein was right about the bees too.

Lee said...

So many thoughts with which to start my day...I shall ponder over them a while.

Jill said...

That woman is from China where they used to do foot binding all of the time. It was so awful! I read a series of books about this. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan was the first.

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

What a bloody great post.....I also love the colour pink and I enjoy the music of pink........I like peanut butter didn't like the so called Light version that much would rather normal peanut butter not that I have it that often......

Ann said...

great tid bits and I love the new looks. So springy and all ready for Easter

Dragonfly Treasure said...

Love Your new Spring theme..and Pink!

Those shoes are a hoot aren't they!
*hugs*deb

Ginny said...

The bee thing is flat out amazing!!!! And your blog today...PRETTY PRETTY PRETTY!!!!!

Kay G. said...

I did a post recently where I spoke a little about Audrey Hepburn, a beautiful woman inside and out, I love her so!
This is an interesting post, you have the best blog!!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

What on earth kinda shoes did she wear y'wonder?

nancygrayce said...

I totally agree about testing products on molesters! Wouldn't that be great....but oh, the outcry from those who think it would violate their rights!

DeanO said...

Oh my soul...what shoes was that poor woman wearing?

Theresa said...

Such great tips! That poor lady and her feet... OUCH! Have a blessed weekend dear friend, HUGS!

Merlesworld said...

Pity all mozzies were not bees then we would be plenty. That lady poor feet.
Merle.......

barbara woods said...

that poor woman's feet, it hurt me to see them

acorn hollow said...

Ewe for that ladies feet.
I love your sping pink.
Have a great weekend
Cathy

SweetMarie said...

Love the tulips!

I agree with the lab testing 100%!

That corgi :) said...

I have heard that about the bees; kinda of scary isn't it?

betty

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

At one time didn't Chinese women bind their feet to make them smaller? It's even worse than women in this country wearing 4 inch heels.

I can think of more besides child molesters. How about giving people on death row an alternative to the death penalty? They can volunteer to be human lab rats instead.

Jazzi said...

Lots of tidbits here!! I agree with the child molester great idea!! Have a great Sunday!! :-)

Diana and jazzi

Sue said...

and I thought my bad foot looked bad :)

Raindrops and Daisies said...

Good Morning Sandie
and Greetings from Ireland

I just wanted to pop by and wish you
a very Happy St. Patrick's Day.

May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire!

Fiona

Crystal Mary said...

I like the use of child molesters for guinea pigs. That Chinese lady has suffered from foot binding. The poor thing, how sad. xx

Lynn said...

Thanks for the reminder on the smoke detector battery.

....Petty Witter said...

Reduced fat peanut butter? Really? Not something I'm aware of as being available here.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Oh my, that poor woman's feet. Hope your weekend is going well. xoxo

Diana said...

sandie
I have 3 daughters, so 7 kids from 3, not to bad. We did have so much fun and the noise level was off the charts, LOL

Belle said...

Great stuff today! I love the quote from Audrey Hepburn. It is awful about the bees and I'm going to look up the peanut butter. I don't buy any low-fat foods. I tried them, and they are horrible.

Farida said...

I really thought google was ahead than Y.. Where did all the loyal users go?

andy said...

Thanks for all the great info ! Interesting about bees ! I hope your having a great weekend

Jim said...

Nice post stuff, Sandie. I should e-mail the first saying about bees to our Texas Senator as he voted against the feds spending any money to help this cause. The appropriation failed.

Nancy Claeys said...

Such a cute template for your blog Sandie -- and I'm not sure what I'll do if Google decides to do away with Feedburner and/or Blogger. Hmph.

JeanMac said...

always a great post

Tweedles -- that's me said...

the bee!!!! we love the bee!
love

Betsy said...

Amen to the last one about what one puts up with.
Child molestors as guinea pigs - YES to that one too.
The foot one made me sick, but I heard that is what happened because many from that culture wrapped their feet? not sure if that is true, looks like it though.

Happy Monday
betsy

Marsha @Spots and Wrinkles said...

Happy St. Paddy's Day - and an even better Monday morning. Or as they say around our scatter - Top 'o the mornin' to you! :)
