    Exclamation Elementary School Project: Priceless Photo

    My sister just sent this to my email; not sure where she got it from:

    This is one of those classic occurrences in life that just seemed to go wrong even when the intentions were so honorable. A class of elementary students started a class project to make a ceramic pot with some sort of plant in it to take home.They wanted to have a plant that was easy to take care of, so it was decided to use cactus plants. The students were given green ware pottery in the style of a clown plant pot. They painted them with glaze and had them professionally fired at a class outing so they could see the process. It was great fun. The cactus plants grew nicely in the clown pots, but unfortunately the children were not allowed to take them home. The cactus plants were removed and a small ivy was grown to replace them. The children were then allowed to take them home. The teacher said cactus seemed like a GOOD idea at the time......."

    I encourage everybody to check out this website any time somebody sends you anything like this, or especially the virus/illness/bad food/etc. "pass this one to everybody in your address book" type emails.
