Update on 12th Night

A lot of comments on the last post were asking about 12th Night, and so I googled it and I found a site at this school in Kent: Woodlands Junior School. They asked for people to send postcards to their students from wherever they live in the world, so I thought it would be nice for anyone interested to read the excellent entry in their really informative website as well as maybe sending them a postcard. (If anyone spots that I got it wrong, and that I should have taken my decorations down yesterday, pretend you never noticed).

Also, I've put up a link to Free Rice, which I had fun playing. I managed to get up to 48. Have a go if you like, it's free, and every time you get a word right they donate 20 grains of rice through the UN to someone who's hungry. Improving word power while helping to feed the hungry seems like a win/win situation to me!

The link is at the top of the left hand side of this page. I can't figure out how to join the link and this banner together.

Thank you from Woodlands Junior School in Kent UK.
Our students would love to receive any postcards visitors can send them. They use the postcards to find out about other places.

Good Evening Dabrah,
"THANK YOU" for the link about the 12th Day of Christmas. It is very interesting and I learned things I never knew before. I enjoyed reading it very much. I also played the game with the rice. I played it and donated 1,000 grams of Rice so far. I have bookmared it, so I will go back again and play some more. I surprised my ownself playing and picking the definitions. LOL. I don't guess I'm as dumb as I thought I was. LOL. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours. I may post about the Rice Game on my post tomorrow if that's okay with you.

Hugs,
Karen H.

Karen...I'd be delighted if you put the Rice Game on your post tomorrow (today?). The more people play, the more hunger is reduced.

Good Morning Dabrah,
I am just dropping by to let you know that I have posted about the Free Rice Program on my today's post. "THANK YOU" for letting me do this. Also, when you have time, stop by. I have something for you on my today's post. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.

When I lived in Uk, we always left our decorations up until Twelfth Night, as it was certainly bad luck to leave them any longer.
But I took everything down and packed it away on Jan 1 this year.

Good morning, Dabrah. I will definitely check this all out. That sounds like a wonderful way to help feed the hungry! Thanks for letting us know. Also, I appreciate you letting me know about my profile; I'll fix it!!

Hi again, I played, love it, and posted about it; hope you don't mind. It's such a worthy cause, and I'm so glad you introduced us to it!
