The Drifters - Under The Boardwalk

cool old song...

Cute Alphabet Song from WWW.ThatsMEonTV.com

Sing along and never forget the sounds of the Alphabet!

My students in Basic 1 are having a hard time trying to remember the letters of the alphabet. Well, these four letters, I hope they will never forget: Y-M-C-A.

I played the Village People on YouTube:

Y-M-C-A!!!

HOW TO TELL THE SEX OF A BIRD

This Is AMAZING!!!

Until now I never fully understood how to tell The difference Between Male and Female Birds.

I always thought it had to be determined surgically.


Until Now.

Which of The Two Birds Is a Female??? Below are Two Birds.

Study them closely...See If You Can Spot Which of The Two Is The Female.


It can be done. Even by one with limited bird watching skills.

I was just thinking that a blog is a log, a journal. There should always be something here written on a daily basis. Well, even if not daily, there is always something going on. If I commit myself to writing everyday, I know I won't keep my promise.

Well, yesterday I had a very pleasant Monday morning with my students. We had a break at the Café across the street from the school. Here they are.

Daniel, Sebastian, Jesus, Rodrigo, Dani, Jonnatas and Roberta.
