Historical Vessel Vega Humanitarian Mission Update. Pls help to reblog and share their story

A heartfelt bonus, from the beautiful and talented Crazy Bag Lady! (Aka: Tiffany)

Earlier in the year, in March, I wrote about meeting the couple behind the Historical Vega Humantiarian Mission. Captain Shane Granger and Meggi Macoun were the most inspiring and passionate people I have ever met. I met them when they docked at Straits Quay Penang to collect donations for schools in the remote areas of Indonesia and East Timor areas. They were looking for school bags, school supplies, musical instruments and medical supplies. They had a list of things that people could donate. They didnt want money, they wanted specific things which involved people having to go out to buy or donate from their homes or schools. It gives people a sense of involvement. It surely did for me. I got a few of my friends to donate money so that I could go out to buy musical instruments for the school band.

(Cute pun!  None of the clue words were new today, but all but “ounce” are new jumbles.  The only jumble I hesitated on was “outlaw”.  The answer letter layout would have been better had “derby” come before “ounce”.    Neer is already poetic for never.  The cartoon is great.  A nice shipboard scene, with a goofy looking Peter, a tiny Tinkerbell and a splendid Captain Hook.  Lots of fun, for the whole family!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Both my horoscope and the Thought for Today were about making choices.  Very interesting.     YUR

(Tough) Cryptoquote Spoiler 08/22/14

(Well . . . yeah.  Sure.  Everybody knows that.  Actually, this might be the most appropriate Cryptoquote ever!  You really couldn’t take much of anything for granted in solving this one.  No single letter words, and only one two letter word.  Only two words ended with an E.  No double letters to play around with.  And, the only punctuation was a single period.  Even the author’s name wasn’t much help.  Albert, Alfred and Althea were not working out.  I know the author, but Aldous wasn’t even on my radar, until other things fell into place.  I almost threw in the towel on this one.  Great way to close out the work week!  Don’t take anything, or anyone, for granted, friends.  Life is too short.  Too precious and fragile.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
