It's a blog hop week - wohoooo!  Make sure to come back on Thursday.


President Carter once told a joke during a speech to a Japanese audience which caused the audience to erupt in laughter. Impressed, he asked how the interpreter managed to get such a laugh. The interpreter admitted that he had said, “President Carter told a funny story. Everyone must laugh”.

The reason students have summer off is because, in the 1800s, it was simply too hot to go to school, so students just didn’t show up anyway. Lawmakers eventually saw the sense in this and fought for a school-free summer for students.
