Three Ideas for Back to School

Could you even imagine teaching 20 to 30 children in one classroom? I can’t. I have tried to imagine doing it, but I always cringe after a few seconds. My parents were teachers. Why? I will never know, but they loved it. August was such a busy time of year for my Mother. She would [...]

How Many Times a Week Do You Make Whoopie?

New Awakenings Organic Coffee is Fighting Cancer in Ethiopia
