Today would have been my mother's 95th birthday. A few days ago we passed the 20th anniversary of her death.
She was a high school English teacher, a full time working mother in a time when that wasn't very common.
So in her honor, let me direct you to a site with a vocabulary game called Free Rice. As you play it, every word you get correct (no one knows if it's an educated guess) earns 10 grains of rice to be given to someone who needs it. The site is an off shoot of poverty.com, which an educational site about world hunger. The rice is paid for with the small ads that appear below the vocabulary words.
And who knows, you might learn a new word or two.
Warning, it can be addictive...
