A New Life, A New Post

Hey, everyone.  I know it’s been a while since I ve posted anything but Jane has been bugging me and I’ve decided to rejoin the blogging life.

A lot has happened in the past 4 years and I have been through a lot of changes-good and bad. I plan on spending the next several posts bringing you up to speed on everything that’s happened. But for now, I’m just saying hi and getting my feet wet.

Thank you Jane, for pushing me to do this. I look forward to sharing posts with you again.

Jack The Ripper Fact-Fridays

One of the theories surrounding the death of victim, Mary Kelly, was that she was not a Ripper victim. Since her face  so badly injured that it could not be identified, people began to suspect that the victim was not Mary Kelly and that Mary Kelly, herself, killed another woman and stole her identity. 

Part of this theory comes from the woman’s clothes in the fireplace-that Mary Kelly burned them to be rid of evidence. 

Others believe the clothes were burning in he fireplace to give the Ripper light to work by, since he was indoors. 

Doesn’t this look yummy?

  • The greatest height a chicken egg has been dropped from without cracking is 700ft.

  • These birds are omnivores. They’ll eat seeds and insects but also larger prey like small mice and lizards.
  • With 25 billion chickens in the world, there are more of them than any other bird species.

I thought his post today was interesting. Check out the fact on the 50 pound snapping turtles! Why would you flush something, when it can swim, anyway?

National Doughnut Day

Five Food Finds about Dougnuts

  • The donut or doughnut is a deep-fried piece of dough or batter. It comes from the Dutch origin of olykoeck or “oily cake”. The two most common types of donuts are the flattened sphere (you know…the ones that are injected with jelly or custard) and the ring donut.
  •  Internationally, Dunkin’ Donuts has over 1700 locations in 29 countries and over 6,000 stores in 30 countries world-wide! In the U.S. there are over 4,400 locations across 36 states.
  • Krispy Kreme is probably best known for their fresh, hot, glazed, yeast-raised doughnuts. The company’s “Hot Doughnuts Now” flashing sign is an integral part of the brands appeal and fame.
  •  Jelly-filled and Chocolate frosted also rank as their top sellers. Coconut Crunch, although not a number one seller, still remains one of the over 52 varieties of donuts the chain produces on a yearly basis.

Ramblings of a Ragamuffin Child

But they urged him strongly,

“Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.”

So he went in to stay with them (Luke 24:29).

they walk beside Light and cannot see

how patiently He tugs away the blindfolds

their vision still

stay with us

unconsciously pleading

until they see His hands

so we pray

hearts bowed

tears falling

pleading alone

Lord stay with us

we feel the darkness heavy

cloaking

wrap around suffocating

we do not see the hands

reaching out

to tug away our sorrow

we stumble unseeing to our feet

alone

and walk away

.

stay with us

keep pace with our wanderings

let us see

make us see

Did you know that we have grown space potatoes?  In 1995, potato plants were taken into space with the space shuttle Columbia. This marked the first time any food was ever grown in space.

The potato is a starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial Solanum tuberosum of the Solanaceae family (also known as the nightshades). The word potato may refer to the plant itself as well as the edible tuber. In the region of the Andes, there are some other closely related cultivated potato species. Potatoes were first introduced outside the Andes region four centuries ago, and have become an integral part of much of the world’s cuisine. It is the world’s fourth-largest food crop, following rice, wheat, and maize. Long-term storage of potatoes requires specialised care in cold warehouses.
Wild potato species occur throughout the Americas, from the United States to Uruguay. The potato was originally believed to have…
