It was about making a Barack Obama lapbook. While she's famous on Squidoo for them apparently, I had no idea of what a lapbook was until i read her LOTD. Way to go girl!!!!! Oh, here's the link. http://hq.squidoo.com/lotd/lens-of-the-day-president-barack-obama-lapbook/

Oh dear! Surely Wizzley is not a platform to promote Squidoo LOTD's? This is most disturbing!

This general chat box is for exactly that - interesting and informed banter and discussion  - personally I am offended that someone can hijack it and promote a Squidoo LOTD, which by definition is synonymous with cupcakes, knitting and all things equally trivial. 

I thought we had escaped all that. Bad form I say!

It is a platform to promote our friends' work and to congratulate them. But if I've done something wrong, chefkeem can tell me. I still think it's great.

You are mistaken. This is not a platform to promote your friend or anyone else's work if it sends a link to Squidoo. What makes you think that this forum is a method of advertising?

Oh shush, Paul, don't you know your notoriety may not have preceded you onto this forum yet?

@Digby, Prospero likes to stir up a bit of controversy for the fun of it.

Dear nightowl, receiving a reprimand from you is like being kissed by an enchanting zephyr wrapped in a gossamer veil. It's glorious and I shall say no more!

Before I go, I'd just like to say how honoured I am in the company of such wonderful women!

There's a shortage of blokes here, but fear not - I can hold my own!

Oh, thanks Digby and everyone else! 

Can you believe that I've had to delete quite a few negative comments on that lens today? Yeesh! It's an educational lens for teaching children about the biography of our President. I got some very angry comments like "Did you teach your children that Obama is a liar?" and "Why are your honoring that immigrant?"

I'm so flabbergasted by such disrespect and stupidity that I hardly know how to respond (except just to delete). I have to hand it to one lensmaster who wrote that it was a great lens about a terrible president. Okay, I can accept that. Thanks for being able to see the difference between an educational lens and a man!  

A couple of people lambasted me for celebrating Obama on Presidents Day since it is reserved for Washington and Lincoln alone. Even if that is true (and I don't see why it should be), I didn't select my own lens as LOTD. 

Thanks for a place to vent my LOTD frustrations. I really dislike politics, and this is exactly why.

Congratulations, Jimmie.

Sorry about the negative comments. Best thing is to just delete them. Don't let those spoil your moment :)

There's one thing you can depend on like death death and taxes, and that is lies, damn lies and politics.

Jimmie some people just can't leave their politics alone for a second. It gets so tiring. But be proud of your LOTD honor. I'm not a squid, but I get an email each day alerting me to it. You're in very good company. I always enjoy reading them. I was just so happy when I realized it was "our" Jimmie.

Congrats Jimmie!  Anytime one of your homeschooling lenses gets promoted it's a plus for all kids and parents who homeschool, no matter what the subject matter.

Bravo - job well done as always! Laughing

Interesting - thank goodness they hadn't invented lapbooks when I was a kid -  I could write reports all day long - but once got marked down because my cover was rubbish - I refused to spend any time on the cover because I knew it was a waste of time, that the content was the important bit! 

But even more interesting - what age group would learn about a current president in the US? In NZ current politics isn't part of the education system - maybe it would come up if you did Politics 101 at uni/college - but I can't see it being discussed at high school level. LIttle kids might do something about elections in an election year - but I can't imagine learning about an individual -  particularly a living one!
