Weekend Forecast/Big Chill/Where the Teachers Shop/trees

BRRRRRRR!!!! A big chill is diving southward. Highs on Friday for much of the country will be in the 20s and 30s with windy conditions. There will be even be some highs only in the teens across the western Great Lakes. Look for snow to be a problem for the Great Lakes, Appalachians (as far south as Tennessee). There will also be snow in the higher elevations of the northern Rockies and the Cascades.

Houston will be chilly, blustery on Friday with lows in the 40s and highs in the 50s. Wind will make it feel 10 degrees cooler. Saturday will be warmer in the afternoon with light wind. Sunday, look for showers and mild temperatures. Thanksgiving Day still looks mild with a shower possible.

The word is trees or los arboles, pronounced lowsssssss are-bowl-ES. Hurricane Ike damaged los arboles.

Los arboles is one of the terms we teach in our award winning DVD, Volume 1 of Let's Learn Spanish with Frank and Paco from,,,,,,, and Remember, there are many benefits to early language learning including improved hypothesizing in science. You just need to cultivate your little Einstein.

When I contacted Scholastic about our DVD series, they told me about a neat web site called Teachers Pay Teachers. Historically, customers downloaded lesson plans etc. Just this week, they have started offering hard goods and our DVDs are available there. Be sure to tell all your teacher friends about the site. They might want to sell some of the fruits of their labors.
Here is the link:

Gordy and I ate at the elementary school today with Sarah. We volunteer and help during lunch hours. But this time we ate with Sarah. They were having a special day for Thanksgiving. Well, I have to tell you it was very good and filling. I was actually "stuffed". And for $1.80 (that includes the drink), you just can't beat it. The kids lunches are $1.35 per day. You can hardly make a lunch for that amount. Remember it includes the drink. It's too bad everyone doesn't charge that little.

My brother in the Rio Grande Valley has a tree farm selling live oaks and Texas mountain laurels. I heard that the mayor of Houston wants to replace 1 million trees. So, I started calling some of the City of Houston registered vendors. There was definitely an interest in what my brother has.

Don't forget the poll closes in a day. So, vote now!

Happy Friday!
