Eating from a chipped food dish brings bad luck.
From Fang Shui by Catfucious, Peter Pauper Press, 2002.
This is my food bowl, big, somewhat empty at the moment and NOT chipped. Mum has several bowls like this for me, so she can keep one out for food and send the rest into the hot water washer thingy for dishes.
So if your beans are feeding you from a chipped, cracked or otherwise damaged. Demand a new one!
This is a picture of a stargazer lily. Mum thinks these are the prettiest flowers, but the picture is from last summer as the plant didn't come back this year. Mum is furry bummed out about that. Plus she didn't see any to buy this summer.
Purrs to our Cat Blogosphere buddies in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Brandi,; Scooby, Shaggy and Scout, they are safe. Lots of healing purrs to all of those hurt or families who lost a loved one.
About mum's company and doing the backpack for the schools. She works for a HUGE company, one of the biggest in the world. So they are always doing things in the community. But they are given lists of what to buy based upon what grade they are in. They are specifically asked not to add to the list of special stuff. Like a toy or stuffed animal, because they don't want the kids to get in fights or jealous of each other.
Mum says if you want to do it in your community, ask around and see if a company, or more companies, would sponsor this as a community project. All they gotta do is buy the back packs or book bags. Then find a school or two who can use the help. All of the bags from mum's office go to one inner city school. Plus in a few weeks they have community service day where they actually go to the schools to help out with projects at the school. Cleaning, painting, helping get things ready for the new school year.
Have a good weekend everyone!
