Hats off to Dr. Seuss!

Theodor Seuss Geisel, also known as “Dr. Seuss,” was an American writer, cartoonist, animator, book publisher, and artist best known for authoring children’s books.

Dr. Seuss took along young and old alike into his whimsical storybook adventures.  His birthday, March 2nd, is a significant day; and is now celebrated as the ‘Read Across America Day.’

This day of reading is literally exploding at Lomond View Elementary School! Librarian, Virginia Miller, who has a boundless amount of energy and talent, organizes a celebration in honor of Dr. Seuss’s legacy each year.

Valentine’s Day Isn’t Just for Love Birds

When I was a teenager my Mom did something I’ll never forget on Valentine’s Day—she bought me a Big Hunk candy bar, my Favorite! When I came home from school I found it sitting there on my bed with a note attached, saying, “Someday you’ll find your own Big Hunk!” I loved that Valentine! My Mom knew I needed a “pick-me-up” because dating boys, at the time, was going nowhere!  And nothing beats the blues for a teenager like chocolate and candy! But most importantly, my Mom showed me LOVE.
