All the teenagers and young adults I came into contact with while shopping today. Well, yesterday. They were all polite, but a couple of them went out of their way (one was even off-shift at the time) and were so very nice I walked out of grocery shopping thinking that there is great hope for the generation coming up today. You see so many negative stories on the news...even, sometimes, in your own neighborhood. But today made me feel good about youth.

In 1921, the Department of Pennsylvania created the School Award Medal Program for the purpose of instilling character and helping perpetuate the ideals of Americanism among youth. The award is given to a boy and a girl in the graduating classes of elementary school, junior and senior high school, and college. Those who receive a medal must exemplify six qualities that define character: courage, honor, leadership, patriotism, scholarship and service.
Candidates for the award are voted upon by a school's faculty and members of the candidates graduating class through a secret ballot casting. The local Legion post involved with the school makes the final selection upon receiving recommendation from students and faculty. Each awardee receives a certificate and a medal with the six qualities listed on the face of the medal, as the back bares the Marine Corps motto, "Semper Fidelis" ("always faithful").
wow, joann. that's really quite an accomplishment. congrats once again.

"doona", is that the same as a Danish/Swedish/Norwegian "dyne"? What we call a duvet in Canada?

After an all-day out of town meeting, I'm done with work for the summer! (leaps around and dances, gracefully knocking over a lamp)

I have actually always called them a quilt, but on all the packaging they are now called Doonas...yes it is what you have on the bed, you put a cover on it and it keeps you so snug and warm

Yes, it is like your duvet

Lightning Bugs .. they are back. I love those things and always just can't wait for them to show up. The hummingbirds came back today too. We have 4 baby robins in the nest on the front porch, the baby cardinals are beginning to hunt on their own, the finches have begun bringing their babies around, the chipmunk came out of hiding yesterday .. it's like a mini zoo around here today !

my boy saw a lightning bug tonight, too, mrs.

just to see how, in the middle of discussions of so many other things going on in his life (baseball, school, etc.) as we arrived home, he stopped and stooped to see it flash again like it was the only thing in the world at that moment that was important.

that made me smile.
