Halloweens now and then!

Some classic Halloween shots over the years - and even a Halloween Christmas for your viewing pleasure!!

Every year I fantasize about some very cool Halloween costume.  I never get past just thinking about it.

Someday - maybe!!

You'd think I'd had enough of "the teacher wars!"

Even if you are not a teacher,  this book would be interesting to you I think.  The first couple of chapters just about teaching in the United States was fascinating - I'm wondering why they don't go over this when you are earning your credential!

At the point where I am now, they are giving the history of the unionization of teachers - and that is a pretty checkered past!  Of course, women's suffrage and women's rights - as well as the civil rights movement - figure heavily in the story.

It's a book you can pick up or put down, but it's worth the read.
