Another week, and another letter. This week we focus on C.
C is for Compassion and courage..
As we make connections with people, we come to care for them and show compassion. It takes courage to love, to share our lives and hearts with others. It also takes courage to live an honest, compassionate life, one where others are treated with respect and dignity.
In this day and age, we need both compassion and courage – to face down the hate, the bigotry that surround us.
There are many role models for us to be inspired by: – Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr., Desmond Tutu, Anne Frank, Helen Keller, Eleanor Roosevelt ,Princess Di, Jimmy Carter.
Step up. Actively cultivate compassion and courage. Make our world a better place.

…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night
A creature that gives lots of people the creeps I guess… not me though, I find them very interesting.
In my hometown zoo we have quit an extensive number of them… 24 to be exact, all males because there are lots of them and they want to prevent growth of that numbers for a while.
Generallt speaking one could say that there are 2 kinds…
one kind is mostly a herbivor and eats meat etc and is quit small in size
the other one is much larger in size and does not eat any meat at all, just fruit and vegetables.
The little ones… we in The Netherlands call “vleermuizen” (English = Bat)
The large ones… we in The Netherlands call “vleerhonden” (English = Flying Fox)
As we don’t have the little ones and as they are related to the big ones, I thought it would not be a big problem that the English name for this creature does not start with a B… It looks exactly like a Bat, only much larger.
I’ve tried to catch them in flight, that prooved to be very difficult but his photo is acceptable to show you, isn’t it?
Welcome to Round 24. The number 24 is so magical that several people have created games involving it, such as this one. “Be the first player to make 24 with all 4 numbers on the card. You can add, subtract, multiply or divide. You have to use all four numbers.”
Since I’ve done this letter before, maybe once or twice, let’s get back to basics: A is for an apple a day, an old Welsh proverb.
Apples: Health benefits, facts, research
Apples were ranked first in Medical News Today’s featured article about the top 10 healthy foods.
Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavanoids, and dietary fiber.
The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.
What’s New and Beneficial About Apples
Researchers have long been aware of the potential for apple consumption to support balanced populations of bacteria in our lower digestive tract. However, two areas of recent research have taken our understanding of apples and gut bacteria to a new level.
The Best Apples, Ranked
My favorite eating apple is the Macoun, which is related to the MacIntosh. What’s your favorite apple to eat or bake with?
My favorite meme is ABC Wednesday, which was cooked up some 11.5 years ago by Denise Nesbitt. It was fried up by me for five years (Rounds 11-20) and for the past few rounds, Melody has been at the oven. ABCW is tastier and more nutritious when you visit your fellow bloggers and leave comments
