Lissa Explains It All



My niece, Elizabeth graduated from high school with honors last Friday night. I cried when she was awarded a scholarship to Arkansas Tech.

Today she showed me the neatest website for explaining all you need to know about HTML and a bunch of other things I didn't even know I wanted to know. This is what it is called and what it is. Lissa Explains It All

What is so great about it? It was written by a kid for kids. I can understand it....well parts of it. What is so funny about it? Our children and grandchildren already know this stuff.

I studied a fourth grade teacher's edition math book to prepare for my asset test when I started back to school after our kids left home. Let me tell you people something...fourth grade math today is what I did in high school.

It may even be a little more advanced than what I learned in high school. I failed the one algebra class I took. What is sad though is that I didn't care that I had failed.

You don't have to know algebra to get a marriage license or to have babies.

Maybe Lissa can explain which key I am hitting that wipes out the whole page I have just written.

  4. When we watch "Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader" I see subjects we never studied in elementary school. Kids know so much today! I'll have to check out this website.
