    Our Nation's "official" Flag had 48 Stars from July 4, 1912 to July 3, 1959.

    The 49th Star, representing the State of Alaska's entry into the Union, was added on July 4, 1959 and was "official" until July 3, 1960. The 50th Star, representing the State of Hawaii's entry into The Union, was added on July 4, 1960 and is "official" to this very day.



    SO..... abcd_4_2009..... We're CURIOUS about your school experiences.....


    Hmmmm . . . . .


    You say you were IN SCHOOL on Wednesday, November 11th ???

    REALLY ???

    Wednesday, November 11th was Veterans' Day.

    Veterans' Day is a FEDERAL Holiday.

    There is NEVER any school on Federal Holidays like Veterans' Day, Wednesday, November 11th.

    You must either attend a really, really MEAN school that makes its kids go to school on a Federal Holiday, OR..... you have a VERY active imagination !!!

    And Your School Must Be Really, Really Mean Make You Attend School On A Federal Holiday Like Veterans' Day AND Capitalize Every Single Word You Write !!! :eek:
