I wrote this letter back in 2014, and with a new school year approaching, I felt the urge to post it here on my blog. To all parents: we teachers support your children’s learning every day, even in the face of mandates that seem out of reach. And to all teachers: I salute you in the job that you do every day, in the face of seen and unseen hardships.
I wish every one a safe, fun, and positive school year!

Oysters are usually known as a powerful aphrodisiac but they have plenty of benefits when you add them in your diet.
A cup of raw oysters contains 650 percent of the recommended daily value of zinc. This essential trace element is only needed in small amounts, but it is important to the system. The main function of zinc is to boost the body’s immune system, which is advantageous for cold prevention. Because of the zinc content, oysters also have a libido-boosting effect, according to celebrity dietitian and author Tanya Zuckerbrot.
The B vitamins are known as energy-releasing vitamins because they break down carbohydrates for energy. Oysters are very high in B-12, known scientifically as cobalamin, and they contain moderate amounts of riboflavin and niacin.

It’s National Ice Cream Sandwich day!!! The original ice cream sandwich sold for a penny in 1900 from a pushcart in the Bowery neighborhood of New York. The vendor, who was never identified in the article printed in papers across the nation, sandwiched the ice cream between milk biscuits. Soon, pushcarts popped up around the city and country during the summer months selling the portable treats.
The modern version of the ice cream sandwich was invented by Jerry Newberg in 1945 when he was selling ice cream at Forbes Field. There are pictures from the early 1900s, “On the beach, Atlantic City”, that show Ice Cream Sandwiches were popular and sold for 1 cent each.
There are alternatives to the classic ice cream sandwich using chocolate cookies, oatmeal cookies or a rice crispy wafer in place of the original chocolate one.
Ice cream sandwiches are known around the world by a variety of names including the Monaco Bar, Giant Sandwich, Maxibon, Cream Between, Vanilla Slice and many more.
