If they only knew! 😍 In honor of the very best media specialist I’ve ever known, one who broke the chains of illiteracy for thousands of children over her career.
I was wondering if you might have this kids book offering by a Mr. Smelt it and a Mrs. Dealt it? Asking for a friend.
I picked up a signed copy of an all time best seller!
Houston, we have a problem.😮 I get the following message when I try to log in on to docolib.org: Not Found The requested URL /eg/opac/home was not found on this server. Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu) Server at gapines.org Port 443
I wrote a book and was accused of plagiarism. Their words, not mine.
The Fate of Butterflies On that day had I turned right and not left then the world would be a different place; although I do not remember that particular day. Today I face a similar choice doing something doing nothing; active choices which have unpredictable consequences. Tomorrow will I turn right or left? such is the nature of choice but not of outcome. Outcome is somehow related to the day I turned left. Brian Lloyd
Well...I just dropped my copy of “The Christmas Carol” on my foot. It hurts like the Dickens.
Sure would help me! LOL.
