Thirteen Special Things About You!

Hugo Diaz Guenchur Bob and Larry close every show with saying “God Made You Special, and He Loves You Very Much” so I thought I’d list for you 13 ways you are special.

  1. Your DNA is so unique that it can be used to identify your parents.
  2. Even identical twins are different in some ways.
  3. Of all the different kinds of living beings on this planet, only humans have a soul/spirit.
  4. Although millions of people have come and gone before you, you are unique.
  5. People that were born over 200 years ago had no concept of many of the things that you use right now and take for granted.
  6. Your talents and gifts and the way that you use them are unique.
  7. If you’re a blogger, you’re the only one with your content—unless it’s being scraped!
  8. Your identity is your own, and now more than ever you are in control of it.
  9. God knows who you are by name, knows every hair on your head, and sent His Son to die for you.
  10. Your parents love and care for you.
  11. Your children love you.
  12. You have value and worth to your friends around you.
  13. You’re special for coming to this site—for not everyone will today!

Thirteen Summer Safety Tips

It’s that time of the year again, when people are outside enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.  It’s also the time when some specific safety tips could come in handy so you can enjoy the weather and all that goes with it.

We interviewed the nurse from the belly button silly song, and she needs to tell you something: these are the hints she gave us to have a safe summer…

1. Wear sunscreen if outside.  Don’t forget to cover ears, hair parts, the back of the neck, and the tops of feet.  Some of those areas are liable to be forgotten.  Too much sun may cause over-ripening.

2. Refrigeration reminders:  food that contains mayonnaise, eggs, milk, and some other quick to spoil ingredients should be put in the cooler to keep people from getting sick and ruining picnics with the little veggies.

3. Keep water with you at all times.  Dehydration is a serious thing.  So keep some water in the car, and make sure you’re drinking plenty of fluids.

4. Yep, it’s the time for bugs as well.  Bees’ and wasps’ stings can be very painful, so keep some benadryl on hand, or some other kind of allergy medicine that can be taken in case of bites, stings, and rashes.

5. If you’re near the water, remember to pay attention to the little veggies around you.  Make sure, if they cannot swim, that they are wearing life jackets. (Not all veggies float naturally.)

6.  Also, don’t leave them at the pool or lake unattended.  Knowing when there will be a lifeguard on duty is also a helpful thing to keep children safe.  Keep in mind to have the little veggies wear appropriate swim attire– watch out for tan lines!

7. Remember, when outside, hats and sunglasses are your friends.  Squinting for long periods of time can make you have a headache.

8. While you don’t want to stay inside watching veggietales all day, you don’t wont to be outside for too many hours and become over heated.  Heat rashes and heat strokes can occur if one is outside for long periods of time.  Especially when in direct sunlight without access to shade.

9. When the temperature gets very high, make sure all pets have an adequate source of water.

10. In hot weather, don’t overeat, it might make veggies (even those who don’t have belly buttons) feel sick or lazy.

11. If it is too hot to go outside, stay in a place where it’s cool, this will prolong shelf-life, and prevent premature rottenness.

12. When camping, take flashlights and first aid supplies.  God is bigger than the boogey man, but flashlights can certainly shed some light on scary subjects.

13. Remember to have fun, but be safe as well.  First aid and cpr classes are also helpful to take!

That’s it from the veggietales nurse!!  (And if there’s something missing in your midriff’s decor, that’s perfectly normal for gourds!!!)
