Assuming we finish Van Gogh sunflowers (which I suddently need for an exhibition next week), we'll be doing pinwheels ourselves.

&gt;Hi every one,
&gt;I have been so busy with school that I haven't even been reading my list
&gt;digests so if this has been a discussion I have missed it. However I did
&gt;want to thank Ellen&amp; Ann again. The pinwheels projecthas taken off again
&gt;bigger better and with much more spinning technology than last year. We
&gt;have triangle and circle shaped heads as well. My school is in a
&gt;collaboration with a k-3 school across the river with our traditional
&gt;sports rivals. That art teacher and I wrote a press release. It appears I
&gt;can use the front lawn of the school. I have put information in our
&gt;teachers mail boxes twice about the event. We have grid enlarged Gandhi,
&gt;Mother Teresa and Maya Angelou...Found quotes by them.... I found a
&gt;chilling and sad quote about peace by Anne Frank. What was the biggest
&gt;surprise for me last year is to what an extent Peace seems to be a dirty
&gt;word for many of my co-teachers. Like if you say peace you are
&gt;automatically against the troops in Iraq. I just found my self saying the
&gt;other day "Just because I am married does not mean I am agains't all single
&gt;people" yeah I know it is a loose connection but it seemed to work.
&gt;It is not too late to spin a wheel next Thursday Randy in Maine
