Reading real biographies is awesome!
But creating fake biographies sure sounds like fun!
This teacher suggests using a tool to study biographies differently.  The tool is called "Fakebook".  Just pretend you work for the CIA and you're making up a fake dossier. :)

American Presidents | Representing The Whigs

The Whig was a U.S. Political party that was in existence from 1834 to 1856. Four of the active and influential members of the party served as the President of the United States.




No More Whigs

The Whig was a U.S. Political party that was in existence from 1834 to 1856. It was formed in opposition to the Democratic party. They favored higher tariffs and a liberal interpretation of the Constitution. The members eventually united with the Republicans and their party, as we know of it in history, was no more.

- William Henry Harrison (1841) -
We will never of he would have served our country well because he died one month after taking office of pneumonia.

- John Tyler (1841 – 1845) -
Tyler opened up trade with China and signed bills admitting Florida and Texas to the Union.

- Zachary Taylor (1849 – 1850) -
Respected as a war hero. “Old Rough and Ready” was his nickname. Before he could implement his policies concerning the exclusion of slavery from newly acquired lands, he died.

- Millard Fillmore (1850 – 1853) -
Fillmore delayed the debate over slavery by agreeing to The Compromise of 1850 which gave each newly acquired territory the “liberty” to decide, on their own, whether they would be a slave-state or a free-state. We of course know that the final decision was settled by the American Civil War.

Presidents’ Day is celebrated every third Monday in February in the USA. Almost everyone knows all about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Just sharing a few tidbits about some of our less talked-about American presidents.

U.S. History Timeline: From Washington to Tyler

Jackson and Monroe were not the only ones who made time for romance. All of the others had romantic involvements that resulted in marriages. The first names of the First Ladies from Washington to Tyler are as follows (with husband's initals and the wedding date): Martha (G.W. - January 6, 1759); Abigail (J.A.

U.S. History Timeline: After Lincoln, Before Coolidge

by cmoneyspinner The Republican party was formed in 1854 by antislavery groups. Members of the Whigs, Free-Soilers and Know-Nothing parties merged their ideals of freedom with others in this new party that opposed slavery.

Presidents Who Served First as Vice-Presidents

What do American Presidents John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Martin Van Buren, John Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, Chester A. Arthur, Theodore Roosevelt, and Calvin Coolidge all have in common with each other? Two things. These nine men served as Vice-Presidents before becoming Presidents; and they are no longer with US.

Author Asks Librarians: Any Tips on How to Get My Book Into Libraries?

We're always talking about recycling and saving our environment.  I'm sure Mr. Dowd would not have minded if I had, but I'm not a librarian so I didn't add my two cents into the comments for the post below found via his Google+ stream, but here's a thought.


Library budgets are often tight.  

How about all book publishers decide to put a note or a sticker on the back cover of every book they publish that says:


"Done reading? Consider donating!
Gift this book to a public library?"

















Celebrate National Library Week April 8-14, 2018 with the theme, "Libraries Lead."

My Best of Halloween Posts on G+ - Superstitions

"Another Halloween superstition occurred at midnight. That was the time when boys and girls went into the garden blindfolded and each pulled a cabbage (some claimed it was kale runts). Supposedly, the form of the cabbage head and its stalk denoted the physical peculiarities of the person’s future husband or wife. There was also a belief that if the roots tasted sweet or sour, it reflected the future spouse’s temperament." 

Fun fact about holiday traditions during the 19th century gleaned from a link shared via Google Plus by Geri Walton.

Glad she shared.  Also glad it's not true!  ☺






Not related but of significant note, Ms. Walton is the author of "Marie Antoinette’s Confidante: The Rise and Fall of the Princesse de Lamballe". Just an FYI.

My Pick for Best of Halloween Spooky Scary Stories

In the mood for a really spooky scary story for #Halloween?

Or do you just want to know what human beings are capable of doing to other human beings?

This story is about an entire family who had an insatiable craving for consuming human flesh. The incidents happened circa 1400 A.D. They were finally brought to justice and executed. 

Executed??!!  Can't believe they didn't have a lawyer to plead insanity as their defense. For sure, they were all basket cases!!

My Best of Halloween Posts on G+ - Gothic Garden

A new trend in gardening is creating a gothic garden with mystical garden statues, and black and deep purple flowers.

In lieu of traditional pastel or brightly colored flowers, a gothic garden is becoming popular and these black (or dark purple) flowers are often included in the mix.

Happy Halloween! “Trick or Treat for UNICEF!” #BeScaryGood

When I was young there was a campaign/advertisement that came on television every year around or near the time to celebrate Halloween. It went like this: Children would knock on the door and when the neighbor opened their door, instead of asking for candy the kids would shout:

Trick or Treat for UNICEF!


UNICEF logo
The campaign began in 1950.  Certainly made an imprint in my mind. The idea was to get people to donate to the cause of helping children all over the world. This October 2017 will be the 67th year. I liked the idea THEN and like it NOW. Sharing this precious gem found via the UNICEF Tumblr blog. No doubt there are all kinds of ways one can contribute to such a worthy cause.

UNICEF:
Books, pencils, playgrounds, crayons – not all children will have access to these things going back to school. But they will be exposed to violence: http://uni.cf/1AbEGqt


Bless the children always.  Have to keep this charity work on the radar.  Always embrace an opportunity, especially when it's a holiday, and find a means to extend charity to those less fortunate. Trick or Treat for UNICEF!!
