BlogDay 2006...

Today is BlogDay. According to the website, BlogDay was created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries an dareas of interest. On this day, every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs. In thsi way, all Blog web surfers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, previously unknown blogs.

Ok. Five blogs from other countries and areas of interest way outside of quilting or crafting.

Scared to Health is written by an RN. Imagine seeing everyday health care from the other side of the chart. Hey, you've got to love a woman who knows all the words to SchoolHouse Rock songs.
Laila el Haddad is a journalist and the mother of Yousif. She blogs about their life at A Mother From Gaza. I started reading her blogs and just kept scrolling down and reading more.

Soul Kadee lost the love her life in 2005. So she decided to do a lot of inner work.. and writes about life with her new perspective. What is Soul Kadee? It's based upon a Western Indian dish known at Sol Kadi which is an appetizer or digestive. She hopes that her blog will "whet your appetite for life and give you something to ruminate on."

Check out her recent post on creativity.
Something lighter!!

NorthernGirl is a newish blog about life in Alaska. The photos are stunning and like nothing in the lower 48. The writings good too! From a long and changing day off, that included a hike along a glacial trail:

Exit Glacier as part of the Harding Ice Field actually has this great interpretive aid for its visitors. All along the road in are signs with dates on them. If you think of the Berma Shave signs of youth, this will give you an indication of the same type of signs. But the reality is the signs hold dates. The dates? Are where the glacier used to lay. I was amazed at how much the glacier has regressed even in the past 50 years. One must see it to believe it. And even in the past few years since I was last there it has melted quite a bit.

Hmm.. I'm a little peckish... let's wander down to the Kitchen Wench and see what this Korean-Aussie is cooking this week. Yum! I found the perfect nosh... even if she does call them golden little hockey pucks.

So we've travelled the world and seen how our lives are more alike than different. Hope a good time was had by all!!
