Last week we had a geography lesson and a religion lesson, today let's do history and reading/language arts.
Today March 2nd is:
Casimir (Kazimierz) Pulaski Day, a holiday observed in Illinois on the first Monday of every March. Casimir Pulaski was a cavalry officer born March 4, 1747 in Poland as Kazimierz Pułaski. He is known for his contributions to the U.S. military in the American Revolution by training its soldiers and cavalry.
The day is celebrated mainly in areas that have large Polish populations and Chicago has the largest Polish population of any city in the world, except for Warsaw, Poland.
Yippee, another day for PACZKI and maybe some golabki (stuffed cabbage rolls), kapusta (shredded cabbage and sausage) and pierogi (stuffed dumplings slightly resembling Italian ravioli).
Today is also Theodor Geisel's birthday! You're kidding right? Name doesn't sound familiar? How about this? I am Sam, Sam I am. I do not like green eggs and ham. Right! It's Dr Seuss.
Happy Birthday Dr Seuss!
In his lifetime Dr Seuss published over 60 children's books that to this day are enjoyed by young and old. Here on The Avenue we'll only be reading about
Here's a cute Meme I saw at Stacy's Random Thoughts.
"Make Your Own Album Cover."
Here's how it works:
1. Go to Wikipedia. Hit "random." The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2. Go to Random Quotations. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3. Go to Flickr . The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4. Use PhotoShop or a similar program to put it all together.
Here's mine, see if you can notice what a dumbass I am. I'll just call it artistic freedom and not worry. Spelling wasn't part of the lesson today!
You'll want to come back tomorrow for a special Tuesday's Tribute!
