Hello Everyone,     

I had to feature this email from Tom, I found it to be quite 
humorous....I have found that most junk mail has a postage 
paid envelope.  Stuff the junk in the envelope and return 
it to the source. This has GREATLY reduced the amount of 
junk mail I receive and costs me nothing but a few seconds 
of time.

Gail asks: How do you clean a chalkbroad?

Chalkboards endure a lot, especially during the school year, 
and need to be cleaned on a regular basis. However if you 
don't use the correct techniques, they can be harmed beyond 
repair. Choose one or more of the methods below to clean 
your chalkboard without causing residual damage.

Apply two or three drops of lemon oil to a small clean cloth 
and put it in a sealed zipper bag. Leave overnight, then use 
the cloth on the chalkboard. This should clean the blackboard 
without streaks or stains.

Pour one half cup vinegar into a bucket of warm water. Use 
this mixture to wash the chalkboard with a window squeegee. 
Wash with one side and then swipe dry with the other.

Spray a cloth with a dusting and cleaning spray product such 
as Endust. This will take the chalk off the blackboard without 
leaving streaks or dull spots.

Buy a special chalkboard cleaning cloth from a teacher 
supply store. These dry cleansing cloths eliminate the need 
to use soap and water. One cloth usually lasts up to an entire 
school year per classroom.

Clean your blackboard in the following pattern, regardless 
of what you use to clean. Start in the top left hand corner 
of the blackboard and work your way across in an up and 
down motion to the top right hand corner.

Rid your erasers of dust and chalk by having your kids clap 
them out daily.

A great summer tip from Michael...Hey, I just got one heck 
of a sunburn and I was told that mustard rubbed in the 
sunburn will take out the burn. I tried it & it sure does. 
It makes it more bareable and I was even able to sleep at 
night. This could be a handy hint. Thank you.
