Love the pic -- it will tickle the sensibilities of my students, I am sure! I just had spinach on my pizza, so naturally I had to run to the mirror to look. Thanks!

Thanks for visiting!

We had a dish with spinach last week, and I was a victim of Spinach Teeth. Good thing I was at home. Great work!
