LOL.. I guess that passes the sensors! LOL!


Why Yes in my many years of working with many children I have myself ended up with lice! My daughter at one time came home from a week sleepover with it after sleeping on the infected child's pillow!

It's the pits! LOL!

Well thank you for making me itch! [>:(]

I had them once as a child and then as an adult I caught them from Ashley, who got them from school.  It was awful!!!

I have not had body lice but I have had scabies and it is a dreadful
thing to have as the worms thingies crawl in under the skin, I can't
post a picture. don't want to scare myself or others.
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

Being a Teacher, you see it all and you are in contact constantly with the kids, so it is really hard not to get things the kids have unless you are a robot teacher and have no desire to be around the children! LOL..
