Friday Fragments, Episode #166

Welcome! It's time to unload the bits and pieces of your week that have been floating around, needing a soft landing place.  To learn more about Friday Fragments, click on the link above.

***While grocery shopping last week, I stumbled upon Seneca Farms Apples and Cinnamin oatmeal and bought it, thinking it might be good and would be the perfect breakfast for Kendall and me on days we're in a rush. Kendall tried it and exclaimed, "This tastes like a dessert!"  170 calories, Vitamin C, 2 g fiber, protein, 39 carbs. Yum. I like to root for the "little guy," and Seneca Farms has the tiniest space on the oatmeal shelf, so there you go. Go, Seneca Farms! :)

***If you're like most people, you get that the "Occupy Wallstreet" protests are about big business has trodden all over the little guy. Since it doesn't seem to be dying down, I thought I'd look a little deeper and asked on Google+ what the protesters are demanding. Woozle Staddon was kind enough to share a link to the Proposed List of Demands by organizers. Very interesting.

***Speaking of Google+, because of one little mention by a popular Plusser, I now have 400 more people "circling" me, which means they will see my Public posts and I can read whatever they share with me (unless I choose to "Ignore" them). Talk about pressure--I can't help but feel a little self-conscious now; I feel like I have to be all witty and stuff.  Don't worry; I won't let it go to my head. You are all my first loves, anyway. I won't be posting any more than usual over there.

***My Difference Makers student volunteer group started up again today, and they are as enthusiastic as ever about making a difference in the world. I'm really excited. Here's a perfect quote for my Difference Makers:

"The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do." - Steve Jobs

Enough about me. How about you? Link up your fragments below:


  1. I like your quote--so true and inspirational!

  2. Ok, I don't know what happened to was showing, then it wasn't.
