“What if just knowing what a word meant could help feed hungry people around the world? Well, at FreeRice it does . . . the totals have grown exponentially.”
- Washington Post
I have found a great web site that not only improves your mind but helps to feed the hungry people of the world. Warning: This web site is very addictive.
FreeRice is a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Program. Our partner is the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.
FreeRice has two goals:
1. Provide education to everyone for free.
2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on this site.
Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your education can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.
Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide. Thank You

Hello all. I have missed writing. I had some life circumstances that have kept me away. I was ill and in the hospital. I am now on the road to recovery. As if being ill wasn't enough my single daughter just gave birth to my new grandchild. My daughter lives with me so I have been playing the role of grandmother and baby daddy. I will be writing more soon.
