Wednesday Medley - Help Someone Somewhere

Happy Hump Day Ya'll!!! 

Guess what today is...

NATIONAL GOOD SAMARITAN DAY – March 13

NATIONAL GOOD SAMARITAN DAY – March 13

National Good Samaritan Day is observed on March 13th.  This day is also known as Good Samaritan Involvement Day. This is a day for unselfish actions to help those in need and to celebrate kindness.
The term “good Samaritan” comes from the Bible parable where a Samaritan helped a stranger who had been robbed and beaten and left to die by the side of the road.  The Samaritan not only cleaned the man’s wounds and clothed him, but took him to an inn where he paid for the man’s care.
The term is used today to describe those who perform acts of kindness for those in need, especially those who are strangers.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Make an effort to help someone who is struggling or having a problem. Use #GoodSamaritanDay to post on social media.
Also, join in with the Wednesday Medley by answering the questions below and then heading over to Terri's blog (our gracious host every week) to add your link and make new friends!!!
------------------------------------------------------
1.  When did someone come to your rescue and can you tell us about it? My parents actually saved my butt recently! I was following them home from a Steeler's game and my tire popped! It was crazy and scary and my Dad came and put my spare tire on for me! If it were not for them I would have been there forever trying to figure out how to do it. I watched carefully so I CAN do it next time if a next time comes - fingers crossed there is not a next time...hee!
2.  When did you help someone out of a jam and can you tell us about it? I honestly can not come up with something which tells me I need to step up my game on Good Samaritan Day!!
3.  What are your thoughts on being a good Samaritan?  Some states (like Florida) have even passed Good Samaritan laws so you don't get into trouble with the law for trying to help someone. I am CPR trained so I really appreciate those laws...without them I may decline to help. FAR too many people are sue happy these days!
4.  Thursday is National Pi Day.  It's a fun play on the date 3.14.  Will you have some pie to celebrate? Nopper...but it is cute! :-)
5.  Did you know that Pi is the most studied number in mathematics?  Are you good with numbers? No I am not and I am also (not surprisingly) not good at math...ick! My sister and father made fun of me when we were installing my new floors: when I measured I would say "2 small dashes past the 8 inch mark" LOL!!! It worked for me!
6.  Tell us something random about your week. I am leaving soon for Florida and aside from feeling a little sick...I can not wait to leave!  My out of office for email is already set-up to turn on automatically at 3:30PM!  I will not even think about work ONCE while I am gone!
I can not wait to go read everyone's answers!!! Have a fantastic hump day and please go help someone in some way today! HUGS TO YOU ALL!

  2. 1. Hubby. I have a slow leak in one of my tires and he keeps adding more air. We get it fixed this Thursday.

    2. We're about to help someone get their boat from their marina and shadow them to Stockton. You have to have help if you only have one engine. Losing that one would be ugly.

    3. I think people need to be kinder to each other. Helping someone in need is a good thing.

    4. No Pi or pie for me.

    5. No I didn't know Pi was so popular. I didn't get that gene.

    6. Today I'm meeting our granddaughter at Costco so she can stock up. She's been off work due to her pregnancy of twins. She goes back to work in a couple of weeks.

    Enjoy your trip to Florida.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

    1. Thank you Sandee! How wonderful to shadow that other boater! That would be awful if something happened to the only motor! My family loves going to Costco together! Than we can share the box of 40 apples between us - HA HA!

  4. We were helped by the Salzburg Fire Department when we had a flat tire. We could have changed it ourselves, if we could just have gotten that little &*^^&*&$* cover off one of the bolts! But, they were quicker and didn't mind their dirty hands!

  7. Hope you are feeling better Ann. I am just home from our vacation home in Ga. I cannot comment on blogs there as I only have my phone and I cannot see what I type on it.lol But I have been reading everyone's blog and I know you want to be well for your vacation. It is a balmy 70 degrees here in North Alabama today and I am sure it will be great weather in Florida.

  9. Most recently my daughter gave me a ride to work when my battery was dead and then her and her boyfriend picked up a new one for me and he put it in. As for me helping someone else, nothing really comes to mind

  12. For decades, I was a first responder for medical emergencies. There wasn't a traffic accident or stranded vehicle I didn't stop at to check even when I wasn't working.

    Then it was my turn when I had my first stroke.
