December 26th, outsourced

The cold medicine racket. There are only a few ingredients that help alleviate the symptoms of colds, but the medicine choices are so overwhelming, am I right?

This story of a woman with six kids and a bike, but no car (well, her husband has a sedan) warmed my heart all the way through. I love that she's doing it not for some in-your-face, ultra-hip reason, but because she loves it and it makes her happy. Sometimes doing hard things make us happy. (Plus, riding a bike makes us happy.) [HT Cait]

English-language "international" schools are attracting more and more locals - this is something I have observed here in the UAE (who has the highest concentration of international schools in the world), so it was interesting to read that this is a thing happening elsewhere, too.

Office workers re-creating classic works of art. Those pictures remind me of these, which I could link to every week and never get tired of them.

The carpet at the Portland Airport. Sigh.

A Utah man had to be hospitalized for chugging eggnog!

In today's awwwwww news, Costco employees and others worked together to buy all the things on a little kid's Christmas list that got left behind at the store.

I loved that biking article. I have a friend who's car-free with her three kids and she loves it. I don't know that I love biking enough to do it, but one of my goals for 2015 is to bike more. We'll see!

Sigh! I don't miss living there. However, I miss sights, sounds, smells, and most of all people! Ya, know, certain people, not Oregonians at large!

I've been through the Portland airport plenty of times and I like the carpet, but until reading your post I never knew that it was designed to represent the runway layout.

I just read this article and kept thinking it was probably your ward, which was confirmed when you were quoted! So, you've probably seen this, but just in case!

Bridget said...

Yes, I saw it, and I need to blog about it! How ever did you come across it??

Every few days my husband does a Google News search for Mormon and that one popped up. :)

I have so many things I could say about the cold/flu medicine article. Maybe I'll bore you the next time you're in the states. :)

Bridget said...

Please do!
