The Great Fire Wall of China

As my regular readers know, I am writing from China these days, and have been doing so four years so far. Sometimes the blog becomes inaccessible to me, making it impossible to post regularly. In fact, starting in late September 2014, China began interfering with many Google-owned entities of which Blogspot is one. If the blog seems to go dark for a while, please know I will be back as soon as I can get in again. I am sometimes blocked for many weeks at a time. I hope to have a new post up soon if I can gain access. Thank you for your understanding and loyalty.

The New School House Rock

Give a listen to Georgia teacher, Crystal Huau Mills, her students and friends performing their version of Grammar: the Musical, entitled Grammar Jammer, available on DVD.
Crustal Huau Mills wrote the lyrics and her friend, Bryan Shaw, put them to music. When they were all done, they had thirteen songs.

The teacher, who is played by Crystal, falls into a dream world where her class and some of her co-workers are transformed. Many of the normal classroom objects come to life to help her reinforce the underlying lesson behind each song. The clock, the flag, the globe, a crayon, the computer, the ruler, her class pet, a goldfish as well as the dictionary all spring to life to help her teach the class.
