I am leaving for Charleston, South Carolina and will be gone through Sunday, September 19th 2010. I will not be putting a Daily Journaling Idea in this Forum for the rest of the week. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused any one but as I am the ONLY person so far that has posted any thing on any of these topics, I guess it really won't even affect any other person but me.
Feel free to check out any and all of the topics from the past and post to those. I check them daily (except of course for the next week) and would LOVE to read someone elses words other than my own. I am feel like a team of one and hope that when I return maybe some others will have stumbled upon this the awesome-est team of them all!!
Thousands of rubber ducks to land on British shores after 15 year journey

The armada of 29,000 plastic yellow ducks, blue turtles and green frogs broke free from a cargo ship 15 years ago. Since then they have travelled 17,000 miles, floating over the site where the Titanic sank, landing in Hawaii and even spending years frozen in an Arctic ice pack. And now they are heading straight for Britain. At some point this summer they are expected to be spotted on beaches in South-West England. While the ducks are undoubtedly a loss to the bath-time fun of thousands of children, their adventures at sea have proved an innvaluable aid to s
Thousands of Rubber Ducks have been floating around the world on the oceans currents for 15 plus years. They fell off a chinese freight ship in 1992. Researchers have been helped by the ducks because people report them where ships don't report the floats that the researchers normally use.
Cool huh? Imagine you are one of those little rubber ducks. What would you be thinking right now? Write a little story about you, the duck. Or be a shark or natural wildlife in the ocean that encounters the ducks.
I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me! Philippians 4:13 Praise God!
