This Week's First Grade Spelling Words are "QACK" and "THA"...

Each week, the kids in Maddie's first grade class copy down a short list of spelling words and sight words from the white board in the front of the classroom (chalk boards are sooo seventies). The first graders practice the words all week at home, writing each word three times and using each word in a sentence or two. On Monday, Maddie brought home a list of words that included "QACK" and "THA." I sure hope she doesn't need eyeglasses, but if she does, I know where I'm going to get them: Zenni Optical. Chalk boards aren't the only things that apparently went out in the more ugly glasses and outdated frames for kids, either.

You might have seen some positive reports on Fox TV News about the inexpensive glasses available online at, or heard about them on the radio. Clark Howard, the popular talk radio host of a nationally syndicated consumer advocate program, recommends ZenniOptical's stylish prescription glasses, available online starting at $8. For eight bucks, or not much more, how can you go wrong, particularly with children's glasses? The children's metal alloy frames on the left, available in silver, blue, purple, scarlet, and pink, are only $15.95. Whether you're shopping for adults or children, you'll find a huge selection of frames, with single vision lenses, sunsensor (photochromic) lenses, tinted sunglasses lenses, bifocal lenses and progressive lenses. The secret to Zenni's low prices is that they use no middlemen and have virtually no advertising budget, selling only their own manufactured frames direct to the customers like you and Rex....but not me and hopefully not Maddie.

Hey Roxy, I've got a brand new post. Now if I can only catch another string of Jobosity's challenges to see how it does. And while I don't have any new ink, I've been keeping up with the tats.
