Interesting reading

Interesting social experiment that should teach us a lesson in prejudging people on face value

A girl got to know her dad through the letters her parents sent to each other during the war, not the same as emailing or texting.

Love these DIY home cleaners that are so cheap to make and so effective and less invasive to the environment and your health.

For the photographers out there, a little bit of ingenuity goes to make an awesome photo

How to wrap a parcel well

Safyre the little girl who lost her entire family in a fire 3 years ago. She only wanted Christmas cards to fill the 100 card xmas tree her aunt bought. She received 195,000 cards in a day. If you would like to send a Christmas card to Sa'fyre, address your card to:
Safyre Terry

I plan to send her cards in the future and not just the one I sent for Christmas.

Interesting Reading-101st birthday cards for JBF-Cappuccino Journal

A wonderful life lesson we should all take from this little girls request

Nobody wants to be this lonely so I am going to send a Christmas card to this boy, why don't you join me in sending one too

How to make recipes cards on PicMonkey

Another way to preserve/save dry goods from weevils

What a great feat this dog has been taught to retrieve lobsters from the seabed, lucky owner.

Check out some of these awesome fences

For those crafty people, here is a glue sponge you can make for those intricate dies, also great for kids for a no mess/no waste sort of glue.

Raised salt painting with glue.

I love doing philanthropic craft ideas like this to make someone happy, especially the older folk that dont have stuff to do like us to keep their days full.  I follow Cappuccino Journal's blog and came across this post

Quote "JB and I want to thank you ALL who sent him birthday mail. I wish I could send each and every one of you a thank you but I just don't have it in me to send out 130 thank-you's....so I hope this blog post will do to thank everyone -- the folks in Canada, Germany, Finland, Russian, Poland went above and beyond and all of you who made him collages and mail art -- it is so very appreciated.Thank you to both the San Francisco Correspondence Co-op and the Portland Correspondence Co-op.
He told me he is kind of sad now that he isn't getting mail anymore and he wishes he "would mail mail like that all the time".  (We all would like that, wouldn't we?).
If you didn't send him a card and are inspired to after seeing all this cool mail, his address is:

                                                                     JBF
                                                  1575 E WASHINGTON APT 530
                                                          PASADENA CA 91104
                                                                     USA

Unquote ...I am keeping this portion here for my archive so I can remember to send him cards throughout the year

Here is the original post asking for birthday cards for her dad on his 101st birthday

                           SEND GOOD MAIL -- GET GOOD MAIL

This story literally brought tears to my eyes, I cried because the lady had only $20 left and wanted to give it up through gratitude for a kind deed and I cried because of what the writer did and the staff in the bank. A Ripple of Human Kindness

In light of all that is happening with Syria and ISIL, the world would be such a better place if those that fight for radicalness concentrated on things like this

I loved some of these videos here but the one I was really interested in was the last one with Nick Woodman, the inventor of GoPro
