Many Americans celebrate Armed Forces Day annually on the third Saturday of May. It is on May 18th. It is a day to pay tribute to men and women who serve the United States’ armed forces. Armed Forces Day is also part of Armed Forces Week, which begins on the second Saturday of May. Many events across the United States take place on Armed Forces Day to honor Americans in uniform who served their country in times of war and peace. Those who are honored on this day include people who serve the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. National Guard and Reserve units may celebrate Armed Forces Day/Week over any period in May because of their unique training schedules. Events and activities may include: Multi-service military displays in areas open for the public. Various educational activities that teach children about the armed forces. “Support the Troops” themed motorcycle rides. Large parades and other local celebrations. Certain types of music are also played at Armed Forces Day events, including at memorials and at cemeteries, as a way to respect those in the armed forces who died for their country. For example, buglers have played a bugle call, known simply as Taps, on Armed Forces Day in recent years. Taps is usually sounded by the United States military at events such as flag ceremonies, memorial services and funerals. To celebrate this day to honor our men and women in uniform I would like to suggest you send a card of appreciation to one of these folks. Here is a link where you can send free e-cards or choose a personalized card and send it via the post office to that special person in the military.

Did you know that some weeds are beneficial to us and our ecosystem?  National Weed Appreciation Day is observed on March 28 of each year, and it is a good day to learn more about weeds and their benefits.
Humans have used weeds for food and as herbs for much of recorded history. Some are edible and nutritious while other weeds have medicinal value.
Do you remember as a small child the fun you had with dandelions? Well, these bright yellow flowers serve a purpose.  Dandelions are a food source for insects and some birds.  Humans eat young dandelion leaves and enjoy tea and wine made from the leaves and flower.  The Native Americans used dandelions to treat certain ailments.  Nutritionally, dandelions contain a source of vitamin A and C, calcium, iron and fiber.
There are also other edible and medicinal weeds, some of which include:
Yellow Dock/Burdock: The taproot of young burdock plants can be harvested and eaten as a root vegetable. Immature flower stalks may also be harvested in late spring before flowers appear.  The flavor of the young stalk resembles that of an artichoke. It is a good source of dietary fiber and certain minerals, including calcium and potassium. It is also used as a medicinal herb.
Lamb’s Quarter: (also known as goosefoot) The leaves of lamb’s quarter are excellent added to lettuce salads or cooked and used as a replacement for spinach. Lamb’s quarter seeds are also edible. They are a good source of protein and vitamin A.
Amaranth: (also known as pigweed)  Amaranth species are cultivated and consumed as a leaf vegetable in many parts of the world.  The leaves can be cooked, and its seeds can be harvested and cooked the same as quinoa. The root of mature amaranth is a popular vegetable. It is white and usually cooked with tomatoes or tamarind gravy. It has a milky taste and is alkaline.  It is high in vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, K, B6, calcium and iron, and the seeds are a good source of protein.
Purslane:  It may be eaten as a leaf vegetable, but is considered a weed in the United States. It has a slightly sour and salty taste.  The stems, leaves and flower buds are all edible. Purslane may be used fresh as a salad, stir-fried or cooked as spinach is, and because of its sticky quality, it also is suitable for soups and stews.   It is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and is high in omega-3 fatty acids.  Purslane can be found growing in all 50 states.
Dollarweed: (also known as pennywort) is an aquatic plant that thrives in a wet, sandy habitat.  It is native to North America and parts of South America. It can also be found growing as introduced species and sometimes a noxious weed on other continents. It is an edible weed that can be used in salads or as a potherb.
Before using any weed as a food source, make sure it is correctly identified and that it is free of herbicides and pesticides.  Research the safe edible part of each weed and find useful cooking and preparation tips.

National Little Red Wagon Day - Last Wednesday in March 

The last Wednesday in March is National Little Red Wagon Day. This is a day worthy of making memories and celebrating the power of imagination, as adults and children alike can enjoy time together with a little red wagon.
For nearly 100 years, Radio Flyer has been bringing smiles to kids of all ages and creating warm memories that last a lifetime. As a brand, Radio Flyer has always supported unstructured outdoor play and its positive impact on children. With their 100th anniversary on the horizon, Radio Flyer would like to establish a day that not only celebrates kids’ imaginations but the vehicles that help them explore it – their wagons.
This iconic toy is one of the most enduring toys of all time. For generations, children have led little red wagons down Independence Day parade routes, carried out infinite imaginary missions and voyages of childhood fantasy. It is not unusual for a little red wagon to be handed down from one generation to the next, treasured like a family heirloom.  The adventures are enjoyed by all, regardless of age.
As the weather gets warmer and spring officially begins, use National Little Red Wagon Day to encourage kids to get outside, get active and go wherever their imaginations take them.  Use #LittleRedWagonDay and tag @RadioFlyer to share on social media.

Toy and Product Recall Finder

We hear about recalls so often, but the term itself can be a bit confusing. So, what is a recall? It's the notification that a product poses a potential hazard and either needs to be removed from use, have its use limited, requires a replacement part, requires repair or otherwise has to have the safety issue addressed. A recall can begin a number of ways, but often follows a complaint from a consumer (or many consumers) who has experienced a problem. That complaint typically is lodged with the manufacturer, although thousands of complaints are filed with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC); and starting in 2011 a database of the consumer complaints became available for searching on the website. Companies are obligated under federal law to report a potential product defect or hazard to the CPSC. The CPSC then determines whether the problem requires notification of the public. If it does, the agency then negotiates with the company about how to resolve the matter, and whether the product needs to be removed from homes, repaired, or provide a warning about its use. Depending on the company and the situation, the process can drag out for weeks, even months. In theory, the greater the risk, the quicker the recall moves. But this process involves lawyers and lines of products and therefore can cost tens of millions of dollars. "If CPSC has taken the action to recall a product, it means [the product] presents a real risk of injury or harm," says Nancy Cowles, executive director of the safety advocacy group Kids In Danger. "If you miss the recall when it is first announced, in all likelihood, that product, with its dangers, will remain in use for many years." It is rare for the government to recall a product on its own, although it can when a company won't come to an agreement with CPSC or if the company has gone out of business. Typically, when you hear about a recall, it is an announcement from the agency of the agreed-upon terms. Recalls can start in other ways. Sometimes a company will discover a problem on its own. The most responsible companies report an issue immediately, when no injuries or incidents were involved.

I have been watching movies on Pureflix for about 2 weeks now. Goodby Netflix. I am tired of trying to avoid movies that push sex, violence and language. Pureflix is so enjoyable in that a person does not have to work to avoid much of the trash that is on some of the other streaming services.

My advice is check it out today and really start to enjoy film entertainment the way it is really met to be. Something to note is that some actors partipicate in the types of film I do not like because if they do not they do not work. Please tell all your friends about Pureflix.

Joni and Friends Brings Awareness to the Mobility Crisis During March with Wheelchair Collection Month

Donated wheelchairs are restored and gifted to people with disabilities around the world.

Joni and Friends, the leading global ministry serving people impacted by disability, has designated March as Wheelchair Collection Month to bring awareness to the mobility crisis around the world.
More than 70 million people worldwide are in need of a wheelchair, yet only 10% have access to one.* Throughout the month of March, Joni and Friends is hosting a nationwide campaign to collect wheelchairs and other mobility devices for their Wheels for the World program. Wheelchair drives are taking place across the country, culminating with an event hosted by the Joni and Friends Headquarters in Southern California on March 29th.
“The need for wheelchairs is immense,” said Jason Holden, Director of Wheels for the World at Joni and Friends. “Tens of thousands of wheelchairs are thrown out each year across the United States, while more than 70 million people around the world are in need of one. In less-resourced countries, a person with limited mobility is often relegated to a back bedroom with no access to attend school, go to work, or be part of their community. But the gift of a wheelchair changes everything – a wheelchair literally lifts someone out of the dirt and into a seat of dignity and opportunity.”
The Joni and Friends Wheels for the World program was founded by Joni Eareckson Tada in 1994. By the close of 2019, Joni and Friends will have provided more than 165,000 wheelchairs and Bibles to people impacted by disability around the globe. This month, the ministry is encouraging everyone to donate used manual wheelchairs and other mobility devices to Wheels for the World for a tax-deductible receipt. Donated items will be restored to like-new condition and distributed by a team of physical therapists to people who could otherwise never afford a wheelchair.
“We hope Wheelchair Collection Month will bring more awareness to the mobility crisis around the world. Instead of ending in a landfill, a wheelchair can be donated, restored, and given to someone in desperate need. Right in your community, you can make a difference. Get involved by bringing a wheelchair to a local wheelchair drive or join our team of volunteers to help collect wheelchairs around your community,” Holden concluded.
If you are not able to attend a wheelchair drive, Joni and Friends will gladly accept your mobility device donation at any time. For more information about wheelchair donations or to arrange a donation drop-off or pick-up, please visit or call 818-707-5664.
Joni and Friends accepts donations of the following mobility devices:
  • Manual wheelchairs
  • Aluminum walkers
  • Crutches and canes
  • Wheelchair parts such as footrests, trays, and seat cushions

About Joni and Friends: For 40 years, Joni and Friends has provided the hope of the Gospel and practical resources to people impacted by disability around the globe. Life-affirming programs include Wheels for the World, distributing restored wheelchairs in developing nations; Family Retreats, respite in a camp setting for families impacted by disability; the Christian Institute on Disability, training and policy center for issues related to disability; and church ministry training. Joni and Friends also delivers inspirational media via radio, television, and podcasts.
