We have been so many places so far this summer. I know how lucky we are to have incredible jobs that allow us to travel.
Iowa in the summer might be my favorite though. It is cool and green and lovely.
The farms here are family owned and have been here for generations. Most of the homes are 100 years old. It is beautiful.
I could stay here until it snows!

Is MS really Lyme Disease?

I came across an article today that postulated that MS, along with a number of other diseases including ALS, Parkinson’s disease, & fibromyalgia are all manifestations of Lyme Disease and its co-infections. 

The image above showing the parallel between MS & LD deaths in the US is startling. 

The article contains a lot of conspiracy theories, but makes you wonder!  Should long term antibiotics be a front line treatment for MS???

"… and to you, if you have stuck with Harry until the very end."

Here’s to book seven. Here’s to the years of anticipation before it and the years of discussion in its wake. Here’s to the boy who lived and how he changed everything.

And here’s to you, if you know that “the very end” isn’t happening anytime soon.

We are book eight.

Hemingway app

girlwithalessonplan:

If you don’t pass Hemingway on to your students as a way to check their writing, you’re a terrible person. (JK!)

This app is another type of “proofreading” app that highlights long or complicated sentences, adverbs, and passive voice. It also offers a “grade level.” It doesn’t tell them HOW to fix issues, it merely high lights them.

I had a few of my students’ papers still saved, and it was interesting to copy and paste a few in to see what came up.

It does have issues recognizing MLA, so keep that in mind.
