Old Rock Day is an opportunity to enjoy and appreciate old rocks and fossils. Perhaps you can start a rock collection. You can go out on a field trip in search of old fossils (the rock kind). Or, if you choose, you can just play with old rocks.
Tempura is a basic yet popular dish in Japanese cooking. Seafood or vegetables are dipped in a thin batter of flour and water and deep fried in oil. Typical tempura can include shrimp, squid, yams, mushrooms or okra.
While you can find tempura in virtually any Japanese restaurant, it's a little known fact that the dish was originally introduced to Japan by Portuguese traders and missionaries!
1 cup cold water
1 cup flour
Resolve to see the world on the sunny side, and you have almost won the battle of life at the outset.
If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.
If you have money in the bank or in your wallet, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.
If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not
