Who else is done with winter? T-Bone is a Chow Chow, and he really would love for it to winter all year. The Chow Chow has been identified as a basal breed that predates the emergence of the modern breeds in the 19th Century. Originating either in China, or Mongolia, they’ve been around for a very long time. One Chinese legend mentions large war dogs from Central Asia that resembled black-tongued lions. One Chinese ruler was said to own 5,000 Chows. The Chinese also used Chows to pull dog sleds through swampy terrain, and this was remarked upon by Marco Polo.
Hope you all have a safe and warm day.
Ok. I’d like for the snow to be over with at this point. Fun fact, wood frogs freeze completely solid in the winter by producing a sugar based antifreeze in their blood.
Anyway, today is Lesson 68. Please do 5-20.
Also remember that Monday I will pass out the practice test that will cover Lessons 55-68. Start reviewing those lessons and practice problems over the weekend.
I try and leave for one week and we get snow again! *sigh*
When we are back together in class, please have:
Super proud of all of your hard work and persistence through this transition and now multiple snow days.
Just a heads up. Our next exam will be March 4th. We will talk about what it will cover next Wednesday. Enjoy your snowy weekend!
Looks like snow is in the forecast. To prepare for the likelihood of cancellations, here is the week ahead:
Homework for 2 Feb: Lesson 56. 1-30 all.
Homework for 4 Feb: Lesson 57. 5-15.
Additionally, you should begin preparing for an exam on February 11th. We will pass out the practice test on 7 Feb for you to review.
