It’s the 100th post.  Do you remember when you were in Kindergarten and celebrated the 100th day of school? Yeah, me neither BUT I do remember doing it when I was a teacher and I thought what fun it would be to celebrate our 100th post.  In honor of our 100th post I’m sharing 100 things with you, my readers.  Because if I could hand out 100 cookies and milk to all of you, I would…but the interwebs makes that difficult.
