OK....here's a 'heads up'  for any reader who may work with children: today (December 21st) might hold some unusual...some might even call it 'loony'.... behavior or events.

You probably already know why, but just in case:  between yesterday and today, there's a convergence of three major events: the  winter solstice, a full moon, and a total lunar eclipse.

Just sayin'.   If you work with kids, you'll know what I mean.

  (And if you don't work with children on a regular basis, let's just say that it's fairly obvious when the full moon occurs each month, or when a big storm is imminent.  I laughed, when someone first suggested that connection to me years ago.  After twenty years in the classroom, I no longer scoff at the idea...)
