Feedback from yesterday's "Email is so 20th Century" post gave me a chuckle. That was all about getting most of your work out in the "cloud" where it's more likely to survive.
Today's suggestion to give 3-ring binders to each of your children or grandchildren. Once they are over that shock, then send a letter each week via snail mail or email. Now that may seem like a giant step backwards, until you realize the pure joy a child experiences when receiving something addressed specifically to him.
In today's video, you'll see documentary evidence that my father, ever the one to push us toward perfection, actually got a D on his high school report card. Yikes! He never owned up to that!
Be sure your top loading sheet protectors are archival quality. You will find some under "archival products" at DearMYRTLE's Favorite Things.
