Some chocolate...and some links
Mmmm. I had a few things to talk about and was wondering if I should narrow them down or just do my own private carnival of random things I find interesting. But then, a little purple package began calling me from the other room.

It is "just" milk chocolate. Nothing special to it. But after eating Milka, I am not sure why America ever bothered trying to compete. And I wonder why Americans ever bought enough of the stuff to make Hershey's recognized worldwide. And I wonder why it is that any of our candy bars make it on to German shelves. The Germans really should no better than to eat that stuff we call chocolate.

Good old American socialism, for you. Hershey wanted a cheap chocolate, affordable to the masses, and we got it. Both in chocolate and education.

It is interesting to note that many Germans actually criticize the US model of education as "too egalitarian and socialist."

Anyway, before I stray too far from the far superior German chocolate in my ramblings, here is a digital piece for you to enjoy as you peruse a few links.

First off, tonight (Tuesday) at 10PM, BlogTalkRadio will be hosting a discussion on education. The show description is as follows:
School Your Children Well: We're talking about tot yoga, college prep school, homeschooling v. public school...featuring Alex Elliott, PhatMommy and Pundit Mom.
PhatMommy is the homeschool mom debating Pundit Mom who will be advocating for private school. You can tune in or check the site later to listen to the show. The homeschooling section should start around 10:30. Shannon would love for you to show your support by calling in and posing some thoughtful questions for Pundit Mom.

The Carnival of Family Life is up over at Be A Good Dad. Stop by for some family stories.

The Carnival of Homeschooling is up over at Corn and Oil.

And the Carnival of Kid Comedy is up over at In a Shoe.

I think that is it for the moment. I need some sleep. And more chocolate.
