The students at the Plum Borough School District are protesting. High school students are upset the lunches they are being served at school. The group ( #BrownBagginIt) has gained so much popularity that they are trending number two in Philadelphia on Twitter. The teens are complaining about the increased price and decreased quality of food. One of the student's complained about the food being soggy and disgusting. Have you eaten at your child's school? Several years ago I went to my child's middle school and got the school lunch with them. It is disgusting! The lunch ladies are saying it is the new rules that made changes to the amount of calories and other requirements in the diet that is fed to the students. I say, that is not the problem. When I went to my child's school I was served a meal that had been cooked earlier (not even sure if it was that day or the day before) and was microwaved. Who can blame students for complaining if that is what they are being served. You can read more on this story in the Huffington Post by clicking HERE.

It will surprise you if you have not thought much on this topic before!
I came across an article on Yahoo discussing the tend in baby names from today versus 100 years ago. I thought the article was funny because five years ago, when I went pick a name for my children, we purposely chose names from the family's grandparent and great-grandparents. I wanted names that were common enough at one point that people would know HOW to spell the name but the name was not super popular anymore. That is why my daughters were named Martha and Margaret. The boys were James (still rather popular) and Joseph. I LOVE the kids names. It is not like I say their names to someone and they have no idea how to spell it. The names are classic but not common. Interesting on how trends change!
Final news bit for the night. It was a busy day today....lol. I came across a page on 10 Wacky Science Project Ideas. It is fun science things to do with kids! There is the Coke and Mentos experiment. Lots of fun and messy! How to make GAK (slime) and your own lava lamp. Plus several other fun ideas. Science is fun! :)
Thanks for reading my news bits. I hope you found something useful!
