Show & Tell: Back in Full Force

By now, you all know that I love these show & tell posts. So here we go again. Click on whatever interests you, until you have one less tab open than will crash your computer. ;-)

THIS JUST IN: Men & Women are Different
ISSUES THAT MATTER: Politics and more
HERE, THERE, & EVERYWHERE: Interesting Miscellany
  • Puritan Prayers-- this link may sound dull, but I'm telling you-- these prayers are RICH, and (though very old) might just inspire you and challenge you in completely new ways.
  • Strategies to Keep From Falling: My favorite author, Randy Alcorn, writes about sexual purity.
  • Sharpen your brain: MENSA GAMES
  • Free IQ Test-- online and fun. I love this kind of stuff.
  • WHY AMERICA IS RICH, and other musings about world evangelism.
  • Top 20 Jobs-- the growth and disappearing of jobs. Good stuff to know, whether you're a homeschool mom or a young person, or in any way rely on jobs for any reason. Hmmm....
  • HEAVEN ON EARTH: Really. (And in my head Belinda Carlisle is singing, "Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth?")
As always, happy reading!!!

Sweet, my blog is on here! I honestly read through all the links twice before I realized it.

Does being pregnant kill brain cells? It sure seems like it. From what I heard it's temporary, so that's good.

The Happy Round-the-World Dancer is amazing! It does bring a big smile to your face, and it also makes you want to cry! Really neat!

As long as you're in Turkey, why not experiment with some Middle-Eastern meatless meals? There are lots of good dishes made with lentils or chick peas. I like red lentils cooked for a long time a seasoned with a little cumin and garlic. I also like chick peas cooked with tomatoes, cumin, coriander and turmeric, as well as the classic hummus and falafel (both made with chick peas).

I cook meatless dinners most of the time. Here are some standbys at my house:

risotto cooked with vegetables (I stir in a little pesto for extra flavor)
any number of Indian recipes--Indian cookbooks are full of great vegetarian dishes
Thai-style curries or Chinese-style stir-fries with tofu and vegetables.

If you don't like Chinese or Thai or Indian food, you can find a huge number of meatless meal ideas in Claudia Roden's World of Jewish Food. Traditional Jews do not mix meat and dairy at the same meal, so lots and lots of tasty recipes have been developed that don't involve meat.

I always love your Show & Tells. Here are a few of my thoughts on what I have browsed through so far:

-I agree that Boyhood & Beyond is a great book. My dh just finished going through it with our pre-teen sons. It really opened up some great discussion. Now they are going through Practical Happiness by the same author.

-I watched part of the Margaret Sanger interview. She just didn't have a peaceful countenance. How thought provoking and sad at the same time. Oh, and what's up with Mike Wallace's Phillip Morris commercial - LOL, time's sure have changed in that regard.

-Thanks for including the Happy World Dancer. That was hilarious, put a smile on my face :)

Keep up the great posts.
