Free Rice

I know that we LeBarons like to think we have large lexicons. Click on the Free Rice logo to determine your terminology and fight hunger. It's addicting.


I'll bet everyone that served a foreign speaking mission will have an advantage when it comes to words with Latin, Germanic, and Slavic roots. My understanding of Canadian helped when I got the word toboggan. Anyway, I haven't been able to get above 36. Let me know how you do!

Bobby- I kept playing because I thought there would be an end. But, obviously I never found one. I did however score 42 and I never served a mission. Which by stating that obviously shows my insecurity of being part of the LeBaron family having not served a mission.

Whoa--Jess you rock! I love that site too--I got totally addicted about 2 months ago and have had to take a break :) Makes me feel smart when I get words right based on logic and reasoning--and when I am just lucky then I feel even cooler!!

Thanks for the b-day voicemail today--good to know you've got my back :)

I love this website. I found it on Flori's link one day and played it non-stop for like an hour. Anyway, I could seriously play all day long.

I made it to 41, but it looks like you're still the reigning champ, Jess.

Bobby,
I got a 42, right up there with my ol' friend Jessica, and donated over 200 rice kiblets to kidlets. It took me back to my GRE prep days. That is way more fun than the vocab builders I did. Thanks for the link.

By the way Bobby, my family is now hooked on free rice. My dad earned over 5,000 grains yesterday and has a score of 46. Impressive, I know.
Oh, and another thing. Am I allowed to comment here, even though I'm only half LeBaron?

Bobby said...

Andrew, don't worry about it. I'm only half LeBaron, too. Don't forget I'm half muppet.
