It’s Monday


Yes, another Monday has come once again and can not help but wonder what is in store.  First, I woke up this morning not in a bad mood, but pondered how it would be not to work again in life because I would be wealthy and wherewithal to pay all of bills and travel.  However, reality does set in and I need to get out of bed for work.  Actually, it helps when you have your grandmother’s voice in your head saying to you that you should be lucky that you have a job.  Two things with this thought, one, it is amazing how your parents or grandparents words remain with you long after they are no longer living, and two, although, the statement maybe true, it does not stop a person for feeling differently.  Today is one of those days that I feel differently, so I look forward of what the day as in store for me.

While getting dressed for work, I heard a story on NPR about a man who had an idea to help his son improve his vocabulary for the SATs.  He is a computer programmer who was working on a website about learning about hunger called www.poverty.com, and thought about juxtaposing the two ideas together and created www.freerice.com.  Free rice is a vocabulary game where ontestants are offered four definitions for a word; by clicking on the right definition, a donation of 20 grains of rice is made to the U.N. World Food Programme. The U.N. distributes the rice worldwide.  So you can learn new words and help send food to countries in need.  See you never know what the day may bring.
