"Where the idea for Harry Potter actually came from, I really couldn’t tell you. I was traveling on a train between Manchester and London and it just popped into my head. I spent four hours thinking about what Hogwarts would be like – the most interesting train journey I’ve ever taken. By the time I got off at King’s Cross, many of the characters in the books had already been invented." -Queen Rowling o-o by clarice

Morphine Bomb Recipe: Here's what some are saying about it. "Once I started sharing Carla's recipe months ago, I got the most amazing and comforting feedback from my followers. People who had been on useless pain relievers for their chronic pains were suddenly pain free for the first time in years." "My husband is in very late stage IV cancer in his bones. The oils are about all that gives relief. This is a God Send." by AislingH

"A staff member of my local Planned Parenthood told me a story about a woman who had 15 abortions. Her partner was abusive and wouldn’t let her use birth control at all, but she was able to sneak away from him for long enough to get an abortion every time she got pregnant. Eventually she was able to leave him and now has kids of her own with a much better partner. No ill effects from having that many abortions at all. Trust women* to make their own decisions, you don’t know their situation." by kari

Shane the little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, “I know why.” Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me.  I’d never heard a more comforting explanation.  He said, “People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life – like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?” The six-year-old continued, “Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long." by carlasisters

Each student had a sheet of paper with everyone's name on it. They had to write a nice sentence about everyone in the class. Then each student had 20 nice things written about him or her. We put those in a frame. This activity was great because some of the students in my class don't hear about how great they are everyday at home. Now they have a frame that will stay together rather than just some paper stapled.   The kids loved hearing about how great they are from their classmates :) by paige

I apologize! I said I would post a recipe yesterday BUT I had no power  starting Friday night through Saturday night so that made things kind of  difficult... Hopefully these granola bars can make up for my tardiness!  When I was a kid, I used to inhale those Quaker Chewy Granola Bars. My mom  would always have to stop me before I ate the whole box… I mean, they are  pretty much like “healthy” candy bars or at least they used to be. So once  I got started eating them, it was game over for those babies. I was an  all-or-nothing type of kid when it came to eating. I’d either eat  everything in the pantry (i.e., every piece of chocolate I could find) or  refuse to eat for days, especially when they tried to feed me squash (which  I surprisingly now LOVE). Unfortunately, this trait has kind of stayed with  me into my adult life, which is why I’m glad these granola bars are not  like candy bars! I can eat as many as I want! Though, I’m not going to lie…  The second bar I ate after making these may or may not have been smothered  in peanut butter with a few dark chocolate chips sprinkled on top (...  hello candy granola bar). I highly recommend trying that if you make these…  Normally, one would use all oats for the base ingredient when making  granola bars. However, I found that substituting some crushed rice chex  cereal for oats was fantastic, not only for texture but calories too! These  bars are low calorie and dairy free. I love swapping out butter for  unsweetened applesauce when baking! Applesauce is a great substitute for  butter and/or oils. Same goes for bananas (I have a recipe for you next  week demonstrating this). Yay for healthy snacks!  Rice Chex Granola Bars printable recipe  Yield: 16 granola bars  Calories: 95 calories per bar  Total Time: about 5 hours (prep time only 15 minutes)    Ingredients:  - 4 cups rice chex cereal, crushed (this should be about 2 cups crushed)  - 2 cups quick oats  - 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce  - 1 tsp vanilla extract  - 3 tbsp raw honey  - 2 tbsp PB2 + 1 tbsp water (or 2 tbsp normal creamy peanut butter - this  will add extra calories)  - optional: brown sugar (for sprinkling - I used about one tbsp)    Directions:  1. Crush rice chex cereal in a large bowl using your hands until only small  pieces remain. It’s okay if a few larger pieces remain but you want the  bulk of it to be small pieces.  2. Add oats to the bowl with crushed rice chex and stir to combine.  3. Prepare peanut butter by mixing PB2 with water in a small bowl until  creamy (skip this step if using normal peanut butter).  4. Combine applesauce, vanilla, honey and peanut butter in a medium  saucepan. Cook over low heat until ingredients are melted together and  creamy/gooey, about 5-10 minutes.  5. Pour warm gooey applesauce mixture from step 4 over the chex oat mixture  and stir until dry ingredients are completely intertwined with wet  ingredients (well combined).  6. Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper. Pour mixture from step 5  into the dish and smooth out using a spatula until mixture completely fills  the dish. Sprinkle brown sugar over the top then push it into the bars  using your fingertips. Refrigerate for about 5 hours to allow granola bars  to harden.  7. Once hardened, remove from fridge, slice into 16 bars and enjoy!  Note: I stored my granola bars in the fridge. I recommend doing the same!  Mine stayed fresh for about one week.  The recipe is very simple and you can definitely add your own flare to it  like dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, etc... The possibilities are  endless! I wanted to start with a bare minimum granola bar so I can always  add whatever I’m craving that day to it. What you would add to make these  granola bars better?! Tell me your thoughts!
