“Every teacher should have a fund of ready information on which to draw; he should keep that fund supplied regularly by new experiences, new thoughts and discoveries, by reading and moving around among people from whom he can acquire such things.”-Sidney Poitier as Mr. Thackeray in “To Sir With Love” written by E.R. Braithwaite
My mom and I went to see “To Sir With Love” together in 1967, I was 14 years old and of course in love with Sidney Poitier…OMG, he was sooooo breathtakingly handsome! The theme song quickly became a favorite around the world and a fave of mine. Lulu, who sang the song, was born today the same year as my bro’ (May He Rest In Peace). HAPPY 65TH BIRTHDAY, LULU!

“The first time I heard you sing, Lulu, I knew we were born in the same pond.”
LuLu AND the song…still great after all these years, please take a listen:
