Lingots & charity

I wish I could contribute my lingots - most of them - to charity in some way. Like if some big donor agreed to contribute to charity an equivalent amount of money for donated lingots. I'd keep some, for the classes that cost 30 lingots or so, but not to dress my owl, who is still naked.

what! you can dress an owl?! how? do you have to be at a certain level? I don't have any of those features and which owl?

In the app you can buy little outfits for the Duo owl . . . a golden tracksuit and a professor costume are the only ones available at present, I believe.

I will donate u some of my lingots for that owl

Many thanks for the thought and offer, but I have plenty of lingots, so I could dress my owl if I wanted to. I'd rather not. But I wish there was something I could do with them that would be worth more than a virtual owl's virtual clothes. I mean, besides taking the occasional extra class in flirting or whatever.

I get what you're saying, what an interesting thought!

I borrowed it from my credit card company, which gives me reward points worth a small percentage of what I buy. If the card has a mechanism for it, I donate my reward points to charity.

It's coming. I am slowly switching over to sign language now. I have a bigger pation for that and i have several deaf friends. :) How is your Spanish coming along?

June 11, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TO9L0Y05

it is going well... I keep resetting my tree though, because I am also doing Spanish out of a book and don't want to get too far ahead of myself. honestly, I already know some Spanish words, but putting coherent sentences together is hard. sign language also sounds fun- I know a lady at church who signs the sermon and everything else for a couple of her deaf friends. I only know a few simple words to communicate with toddlers (more, milk, please, all done, etc.)

Lol, I know the baby signs too! :) There is a lady at our church who does the same and some times I try to see what she is signing. :) What church do you go to? I go to a non denominational church, it is called New Testament Fellowship.

Wow, it sounds like you are getting really good with Spanish!!

I used to go to an evangelical covenant church-that is the one who had the signing (there were over 1000 people who went there), but we recently switched to a small rural Lutheran church-an AALC. [I don't really want to say the name of it so I may stay anonymous :) ]
