Our heads could do with filling....

An excerpt:

“Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts,
Teach us something please,
Whether we be old and bald,
Or young with scabby knees,
Our heads could do with filling
With some interesting stuff,
For now they're bare and full of air,
Dead flies and bits of fluff,
So teach us something worth knowing,
Bring us back what we've forgot,
Just do your best, we'll do the rest,
And learn until our brains all rot...”

~ from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone,
written by J.K. Rowling

My boys start back to school today and I thought that this Hogwarts school song would be appropriate for the occasion. :)  I hope that they -- and all the others headed back to school this fall -- will spend the year filling their heads with interesting stuff that's worth knowing!
