Food and Cheer and Song

Here is a list of retailers that are refusing to open on Thanksgiving, in order to allow their employees to spend time with family. Please join me in supporting them this year. Then, stay home with your family on Thanksgiving! 
"If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world." —J.R.R. Tolkien

The Children Must Have the Best Books

"One more thing is of vital importance; children must have books, living books; the best are not too good for them; anything less than the best is not good enough; and if it is needful to exercise economy, let go everything that belongs to soft and luxurious living before letting go the duty of supplying the books, and the frequent changes of books, which are necessary for the constant stimulation of the child's intellectual life." - Charlotte Mason, in Parents and Children
