Sallie! Congratulations! You are the winner of Cooking With Character


Thank you all for playing and I hope those of you who did not win, might find a book that inspires you on Bill's website, and send him an order. :)
______________

 My cousin Janet is married to an awesome fella by the name of Bill!  If you were to be her friend on Facebook, you would see how much fun this couple has romping all over the U.S.! Well it just happens that Bill is a writer and he has graciously offered up 2 of his books for me to give away this week!  I will be pulling 2 winners and each will receive one book each!

Please let me introduce you to Bill!
Bill Griffin is a retired educator who has a passion for children and children's literature.  He holds a B.S. and M.A. degree in early-childhood education and a M.A. and ED.S. degree in Educational Leadership. Bill began his educational career as a Kindergarten teacher and ended his career as principal at Florence Middle School in Florence, AL.
Bill has a passion for the outdoors and enjoys riding his motorcycle, fishing, and boating.  He is adventurous and loves to travel! His Droid is always at his side and many of his ideas for writing are created during his travels.  Bill, and his wife, Janet, have three children.  They reside in Florence, Alabama, along with their dog, JD, and goldfish, Griffin.
Bill travels across the country speaking on various educational subjects.  He is available to speak in schools and at conferences.  He can be reached at bill@billgriffinbooks.com.  
_________________________________________
I have not had the pleasure of meeting Bill yet but maybe this Christmas we can fix that! I know he would be very interesting to sit and chat with.

Although his books are oriented for use in classrooms to help teachers and administrators be able to interject "fun learning activities" into their lesson plans, he does have 2 books that he feels a wide audience would love to read!

And for those of you who are school teachers or work in a profession that surrounds you with children, check out Bill's website for some great books to add to your library!

These 2 books are up for grabs! 
Stupid Is As Stupid Does!
The title of this book should be enough to encourage you to want to read it from cover to cover.  Chapter one opens with the subject of kissing.  When a man courts his wife before marriage, he is all into kissing.  But, shortly after the wedding, he turns into a big "chicken."  The husband gives his wife a "peck" on his way out and that is the extent of his kissing.  They have gone from passionate kissing to pecking.  What a let down!  In Stupid is as Stupid Does, Bill has compiled a list of twenty-five things, especially kissing, that a husband can do to make his wife happy.  Cause, if Momma is happy, then everybody is happy!

Cooking With Character!
Who wouldn't enjoy a healthy plate of Wordy Durds for breakfast, perhaps some Angry Mush for lunch, or some Shake, Rattle, and Roll Salad  for dinner? These recipes, and many more, are found inside the pages of Bill's Cooking With Character. Bill has created some of the wildest, most tasteful, and just "plain" fun recipes everyone will enjoy. You may have experienced many of these dishes before, but Bill has added a side of character traits with entertaining stories to accompany each one. Everyone who experiences Wordy Durds will come away with an understanding of teamwork. When preparing Angry Mush, one will learn the importance of self control. Shake, Rattle, and Roll Salad teaches the importance of punctuality.

Bill's Cooking With Character is more than a cookbook. It teaches important life lessons, with a twist of humor. The recipes are easy and will be a hit, with the old and young alike, for many years to come.

These look like fun books. Lucky you to have a writer joining your circle of friends.

I see the title of the first book and have a hard time thinking a positive thought about myself. Just an hour ago, I was cleaning (my best thinking time) and recalled related quote: "I may not be a smart man, but I know what love is." Sometimes we are stupid about things we know.

Follow.
