The peanut butter assignment is done…finished for this year.
Our church is amazing, in that we have our own system for feeding those in need. There are canneries all over the US that produce a product for the Bishop’s storehouse system ( our food pantry). Here in Houston we make peanut butter for the entire system. It goes to all the Bishop’s storehouses all over North America. Last Friday morning we started at 10:00am., working around the clock, till Saturday evening at 6:00pm. We produced 32 pallets, with 66 cases to a pallet, with 12 jars to a case. If you add that all up it comes to 25,344 jars of peanut butter for that run. There are eight shifts of workers, working four hours each to keep the “run” going non stop. It was my job to organize the workers for this peanut butter run. It is a lot of work but it is totally amazing that we can pull this off every year. The people work hard and are cheerful in their work. I think they understand the service that they are doing for those in need. I can’t say that the run went smoothly. There were several glitches with the machinery, but nothing that kept us from producing our peanut butter. Just so you know! There are 10 to 12 stakes/groups that will work this year. If just 10 groups work, that makes 253,440 jars of peanut butter for our system this year. FYI: We also make peanut butter for the Houston Food Bank. I suppose I shouldn’t be tooting my horn, but I am so happy that we can do this.
A change of note: Technology! Quite Amazing!
I sure don't know how they do this! When you move the mouse around, her eyes follow the pointer. When you write something in the left space and then click on "Say it," she says it! You can also change persons doing the talking and the language they speak.
I found this in this mornings email from Richard Sutton and I played with it for a while. My cat Bubba was sitting on the rug so I typed in, “Bubba, where did daddy go?” It actually spooked her and she ran in the other room.
