What is it?


Here is a little guessing game for you! If you live, or have lived in South Africa, give the others a chance to answer first  : )
Here are the brand names of some products (a couple might be the product name) we have purchased since arriving in South Africa. The first 4 are currently in our bathroom. The last three are in our kitchen. Can you guess what these items are?

Dawn
Kair
Fiesta
Doom
Yum Yum
Milo
Bubbles

Just so I don’t leave my South African readers out, can you tell me some inexpensive places to find furniture? Are there any second hand stores or resale shops? We are in a furnished home right now, but when we move, we will have to start from the beginning-beds, sofa, bookshelves, dishes, all of it!
Please leave your guesses in the comments section. Thanks for playing.

No guesses from your mom - I just love seeing what others think. I am about facts.
Thirty three years ago on July 20 a beautiful baby was born in Valpo Ind. We named her Jonna Michelle. For 4 years she despised the name and told everyone she was Joni. In seventh grade she decided to be Jonna again. To us she is the perfect JONNA. We are so proud of who you are in Christ Jesus-chosen, dearly loved, precious, loved. All those are true for us as well. I could write the book on you dear girl. You have a true servant heart and God will use you in amazing ways for HIS glory. Take it slow and let Him work out His good purpose in your life. We love you and cannot believe it was 1978 when God sent you into our family-what a tremendous blessing you have been to us. Happy Day with your precious family. Dad and Mom
