I can't believe I missed the anniversary of the opening of King Tut's tomb. When I was a kid I loved the pyramids and everything Egyptian. I thought it was so cool!
I will still have to get a lesson in, even though I am a few days late.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
