Like’s are nice, but…

Most wordpress bloggers and facebook users know what a ‘like’ is, Right?

We click on the little icon that says ‘LIKE’ if we want the author/owner of the wall or whatever to know we came and enjoyed what we saw, one little mouseclick says so much – and takes so little effort on our parts. It’s unambiguous, both parties the sender and the sendee understand what is meant and everyone’s happy. Job Done! off to the next page. Don’t really need to write a comment that probably won’t really say what i mean to say anyway, and besides who has the time to write today?


Like’s are nice, but, if you really mean something about what you saw here gave you something worth while and you ‘like’d’ it, you could show me your intention much better by clicking the link over there:


and spend a couple of minutes helping feed someone who needs a few grains of rice to live till tomorrow.

If you REALLY like’d it you could put your own link on your own site – ask if you need the instructions, always glad to help out.

The starving, Bob and God thank you.

Being time rich and money ‘poor’ ( relatively) i don’t do a lot of charity work or feel all that comfortable giving money to charities – which is not to say i don’t do it, i do plenty considering, but i feel a little guilty having so much when some have less than  nothing.

So, i have recently been reminded that it is easier to do something for others than we may believe.. Take a look, if you would be so kind, at my latest PAGE ( see menu bar beneath ‘Soapbox’ banner) not post.

( or now you can simply click on the freerice banner in my sidebar.)

…and for those who may, like me, be somewhat ‘skeptical’ where such matters are concerned, take a little look here:
