    Caroline, what a good lesson idea! It works so well with my other posts. (Where would I be without an Egyptologist to help me?)

    You made my day! I seriously WAIT for these.... And, I'm glad Fefi is ok too! He's obviously feeling well enough to take a "dig" at Egyptologists (pun intended) Thanks so much for this series!!

    No. YOU made my day! I loved your email enquiring about Fefi's well-being. Our ancient friend was fortified by your voice offerings and, no worries, he will resume his blogging activities shortly. And I might pitch in from time to time.

    Students will love doing this. Can we use modern name nick names - to research or their names such as mine: Deborah that mean teacher or bee? Then find out how to write it in hieroglyphics?
