Pearls Perhaps

Welcome to another issue of Starlink Extra. Bag of Pearls

We have no special theme for this issue - the links are a 'grab bag' of resources that may be of interest to Starlink readers.

We hope there will be a pearl or two here for everyone. :-)

One of the web links is for the Vision Australia website. Perhaps worth additional mention here are their Writing for the Web Workshops, one of which is to be held in Melbourne on 2 November 2006.

Lipstick Laughter

Some of you might have seen this one - though we hope it makes you smile again! Girl - Wry Face

In a Minnesota school, they were faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the washroom.

That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night, the maintenance man would remove them and the next day, the girls would put them back. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done.

He called all the girls to the washroom and met them there with the maintenance man. He explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night.

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, he asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. Girl - Wry Face

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet bowl, and cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

The moral of this story? There are Teachers ... and then there are Educators!
