7 Friday Quick Takes

7 quick takes sm1 7 Quick Takes about charade fails, $100 centipedes, and six word novels

Where has this week gone?! It's been very busy and probably can't salvage much for today since I have to deal with another day of car repairs. I seem to be trying to make up for the unproductive week through internet reading insomnia which results in interesting things I saw on the Internet and thought I'd share. 

We are still praying for the Philippines. Such heartbreak and devastation.
Did you see/pray Jen's beautiful prayer?

One of my favorite things to listen to while I'm walking/jogging to keep a pace is Paror Stelar
Watch this guy dance to one of his songs.

Weird Sea Animal caught on video of Oil rig cam:

A list of what foreigners would tell about America.
Big portion sizes, food waste, credit score and credit cards, dependence on cars, friendly people but cold in friendships. Interesting.

Ever think of what would be good to have in a disaster bug out bag?
Amazon will do it for you, although I am sure it could be pulled together for a fraction of their cost:

I just hope I'm home to have access to my bug out bag or that my home is there... Just can't worry too much about it, and will instead count my blessings and pray for those in need.

Are you keeping up with the Common Core discussions?

And the way our president thinks he can change laws without Congress because Congress isn't stopping him and the American people are cool with it?

And this...the reason I hate discussing time travel with my kids:

want more...go here.

Happy Friday!
