two completely unrelated items

One thing I like:

Fiber-One bars have changed how I view granola bars. My dear friend Rachel Blaine informed me of the existence of these wonderful food items a month ago, and after hearing her endorsement of these fiber-filled delectables, I rushed to Costco and bought a box. She wasn't lying, they truly are a healthy granola bar that tastes like a candy bar! And they come in a variety of different flavors, which I was pleased to discover while strolling through Target the other day. I seriously look forward to having one at work each day. Scrumptious.

One thing I don't like:

Focus on the Family, a Christian group I'm growing more and more disappointed with, asked their supporters in a YouTube video (which they now have pulled) to pray for rain of "biblical proportions" when Barack Obama gives his acceptance speech outside tonight at Mile High stadium in Denver. What's ironic to me is that today is also the 45th anniversary of MLK's "I Have a Dream" speech, a historic call for respect and unity within America. Forty-five years later, it doesn't really seem like some of the Focus on the Family folks understand this message.

Hi, Kelli, great post. If you liked "Pray for Rain", you'll love the parody video at YouTube: Pray for Diarrhea
