He managed to escape once but was caught. At one point, Bowe Bergdahl's execution was threatened if prisoners weren't exchanged (mainly people being held at Guantanamo).
2. Yahoo to lay off 14% of its workforce.
I tried using their search engine more thinking that might help their business stay afloat....but it really isn't a good search engine anymore. I wonder if reading Yahoo news more and checking my e-mails more would help.
I found out about it on Yahoo:
-----Should babies be treated for obesity inside the womb??
3. Support the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012
-----"Janitor's revenge...how to annoy people when it snows."
For those that pray: Please pray for a friend of mine that has been depressed. Pray that I and others find a way to bring some smiles back into her life.
-----Soyfoods Month. I should avoid soy at times, Husband is allergic and I have some doubts as to its safety.
-----Keep America Beautiful Month, Lawn and Garden Month
-----National Humor Month, National Poetry Month, National Welding Month
-----International Guitar Month
-----Records and Information Management Month
-----Stress Awareness Month. Happy to say that I have relieved a major stress in my life and hope that it stays that way....:-)
-----Sexual Assault Awareness Month
-----April 8 was both Easter and the anniversary of Handel's "Messiah."
6. Unusual Recipes:
-----Black Bean Avocado Brownies. Very healthy and it says they taste somewhat like fudge. I had never heard of them and we MIGHT try them depending on how Husband feels about the idea.
-----Sort of a guacamole. It uses fresh peas. An interesting experiment and/or good for those with an avocado sensitivity.
7. A Walk in the Park. April 2012
I find things like this pretty. :-)
Jet's...but Jet's Pizza Kentucky has a new Buffalo Chicken Pizza. I am looking forward to trying it this summer. Last summer, a friend who lives in Kentucky treated us to Jet's TWICE. :-) Their garlic crust is excellent, the Supreme (or whatever they call it) is just the right amount of everything, a jalapeno-topped pizza with pineapple to cool the hotness was interesting and everyone absolutely loved the barbecue chicken.
Mmmm. I want pizza.s

9. "A Koran in Every Home" project
This man wants to give away 25 million free German-language copies of the Koran to non-Muslims – his campaign is called “Read! In the name of your Lord who created you." It has been said that the text itself is not radical....but that some of those distributing are aggressive (and the initiator has been rated dangerous).
~~~What would the reaction be if it were the same project but with a Bible? I would imagine in America there would be a lot of suing or injunctions.
~~~I do not know what a Salafist Muslim is and must look that up.
10. A recent Church sermon we heard was about money matters. It covered budgeting, how to properly use money and tithing. I have noticed that there is controversy on the internet about tithing.
11. Brussels Sprouts recipes:
Slow Cooked Brussels Sprouts
12. How much toilet paper do we use?
I use a lot of toilet paper. I try to cut back on it by using coupons, stockpiling and ordering online if it is cheaper.
~~~Walmart has free shipping on certain home items if your order is over $45....when we have the money to do this all at the same time and can wait for the shipment, I carefully price stuff and stock up on toilet paper and other essentials. A good one is getting a big bottle of 409 that is sold on the Walmart site and refilling the spray bottle (make sure to write "DO NOT THROW AWAY" on your spray bottle).
13. A reporter named Megan Carpentier has undergone an unnecessary transvaginal ultrasound to frame the abortion debate.
