Errand Day

This morning, I took my Mom to the pharmacy, the post office, and the grocery store. Since the store that she has patronized for thirty or forty years is closing, we went to another.

I mowed the front and back yards today to dispose of all of the leaves. The lawnmower mulches the leaves quite nicely, and I prefer the lawnmower method over the leaf blower method.

This afternoon, I took my Mom shopping for some flannel pajamas and some fleece-lined bedroom slippers.

U.S. on Lonely Mission in Sudan

Follow the money.
America is on a lonely mission to end the crisis in Sudan.

The United States is pushing for U.N. sanctions against the east African nation. But U.S.-sponsored resolutions have met resistance in the U.N. Security Council -- particularly from China and Pakistan, which have major oil deals in the African country. Algeria, which is a fellow Arab league member, also is an obstacle.

Too much food, not too little, plagues U.S. children

The other day, I heard a public service announcement, which had been recorded by First Lady Laura Bush, regarding hunger in America. In the announcement, Ms. Bush said that one out of four (or it may have been one out of five) children in America "face hunger" every day. The statement concerned me. There was no definitation of what to "face hunger" meant. I did some research on the Internet, and found an article on the web site of USAToday, the gist of which is that the problem is not hunger, but too much of the wrong kinds of foods.
