2nd Week of Lent

I am trying to read a few books (aka finish) and some have some have to be returned quickly, so no renewals. I am still reading the Bible, not daily, but trying to read a few days at a time, to catch up and maybe even finish early. It helps that a friend started a page where we could share what we are reading and where we are talk about our own take of what we are reading. A few of us are reading beginning to end, and that helps, too.

I am still working on the 40 bags. I am a little ahead, but I did some research and found a place that will come and get my treadmill and sell it. I don't have to try and get it out and haul it somewhere, they will pick up. The problem still exists that we have a trampoline and a see saw and since children could get hurt on them, no one will take those items. Really? Children will get hurt on stairs, a chair and a table! They can get hurt walking on a sidewalk. If you use the item as it was meant to be used, there is less chance of injury, but it you abuse it or use it improperly, you can get hurt! I understand why you can't take baby items (car seats, baby beds, etc), they are recalled too much for someone to be certain. I can take that apart and put it in the recycling or take to a recycling center and get a few paltry dollars for it.

Still working on cleaning out the emails. I get a little ahead on the Yahoo as I cancelled the emails going to it (pattern links), but I get behind on the Gmail as that grows daily, but I try to look at some and delete, but when I can only look at it on my phone, I really can't decide as easily. I will try to work on it a little at night while the kids are not doing school work.

Getting a bad grade inspired a man to get a change made to the Constitution. I saved this for my girls as I think that this is a great story. Now to get them to read it....

These 2 are for IPods, IPads, IPhones, etc. Apple listening. Sorry, but they are worth listening if you get a chance.
