Why I shake things

No, I am not crazy, and yes, there is some logic to this strategy of mine. I shake things so that I can easily tell if a cup or glass is empty or not, and in addition, I can also get a handle on how much liquid or anything else is in said cup or glass.

I shake cups and glasses.I shake bottles, jars, boxes and bags, and I shake tins and cans. That is, I shake them all after I make sure that they are securely closed.

By shaking things, I can not only tell how full or empty they are, I can also tell what is inside of them. I listen carefully to the sound that emanates from said thing in order to determine what it is I am shaking. The sound of liquid is different from the sound of powder and the sound of grains is different from the sound of jelly.

By shaking a tin I can determine if it is soup or beans. By shaking a box I can determine if it is packages of tea or something else. Fun, and lots of fun for me!

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud, those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
