Why wear odd socks?

Why wear odd socks?

What is the relationship between Odd Socks Day and Anti-Bullying Week? What does this fashion statement have to do with bullying? We wear odd socks today to express the idea that everyone is different, everyone feels like they are not part of the crowd for some reason, and we all ...

Excerpt from I Can See You

I had a tough time deciding which book to do an excerpt from today! I just finished books 1 and 2 of Michael Leese's Jonathan Roper Investigates series.
