Free Rice...
Like no other time of the year, the holiday brings us all opportunity to pause. An opportunity to remember, to share... and to care about the ones we love. Most of all, an opportunity renew our spirit and remember... we believe. We believe in ourselves and we believe in each other.

As we prepare for yet another revolution around the sun, there are those among us that will make the journey without loved ones we've lost... but we'll take comfort in our memories and accept our daily challenge with a fuller heart.

So... pause... take a deep breath... and look around. Look at your good fortune and the joy you take from life and those that surround you. We're all rich beyond our wildest dreams.

As a simple gesture, I'd like to suggest you put down that piece of cake... take a few minutes to have some fun and Give Free Rice. <http://www.freerice.com>

Test your vocabulary... Challenge your friends and the children... for every answer you get right, you can help the United Nations end world hunger... seriously.

Try it. I promise you'll feel good.

Happy Holidays.

Me, too Ms Moose. Just a tip for others. It helps to look for any part of the word in question you can link with the meaning of similar words,..."re", "lib", (short on examples here). Now I'm up to 35

Hard to imagine this entertainment helps others have food.

Thanks admin

Wow, a way to waste a day and feel noble about it! My son thinks it's a great way to practice SAT vocab.

Re: Free Rice...
There's another site (heard about it a while back on NPR) where similarly you can donate small amounts just by visiting the sites listed. It starts with the "Hunger Site" but there are other good causes along the tabs at the top. I go through the tabs in a matter of seconds, though I have stopped at the hunger site and bought a t-shirt and shorts....
