Benjamin Franklin gave guitar lessons.
Really? I wonder where this is documented. My husband gives guitar lessons. And he’s about as far from a Benjamin Franklin as you can get. However, from what I’ve read, Mr. Franklin was no Sunday School scholar…he was quite the party animal. yeahfacts: (The World’s Best Book of Useless Information)

In the age of technology we live in, it’s way too easy to expose them to other things we’d rather they didn’t know. And so far, none of my kids (I’ve graduated my own three and...
