Realized my last post seemed like spam…it wasn’t I promise. I’m actually up for an award. 

Gazette.Net My Favorite Teacher -- Gazette.Net


Need some help Tumblr. I’ve been nominated as part of a contest as one of my student’s Favorite Teacher. There are over 9000 teachers in my school system, and I’ve been picked as one of the 10 middle school finalists. I’m the 7th one down, with the initials WNL. I’d love if you would please vote for me at least once. You can vote as many times as you want. If you have any questions, please ask…please send this along to as many people as possible. This could be a real feather in my cap. Not a huge amount of perks as a public school teacher in an “urban” school…but this could be one.  Thanks

A Chat with Mr. Alton Brown…

Some people only seem to know Alton Brown as a food guru, famously from the Food Network.  Mr. Brown is a huge part of the Food Network’s success, as he hosts a multitude of shows and has an incredible following.  Personally, I know Alton Brown for his demeanor and style — he has become my personal “Style Icon”.  
 
Alton Brown is much more complex than his ability in the kitchen, and most people understand that.  What most be people miss (well they’re missing it less…) is Alton’s impeccable taste for quality and elegance when it comes to his wardrobe.
 
Mr. Alton Brown, I found out, is more complex than I could have imagined and that is a wonderful thing.  Find out more about Alton’s sartorial mind-set for a minute and learn about the man outside of the kitchen…

Elegantly shabby…or maybe shabbily elegant.

The jellyfish evolved in the lake without any predators, and over time grew vegetarian and lost their ability to sting. Their red color is a result of an algae diet. The water in the lake is salty and connected underground to the ocean but not even the tiniest jellyfish can get in or out.
