~ Carmen How the pig collection began I have never told anyone that I collected pigs.  On the contrary, when I have had to list “my collections”, I have always listed elephants or magnets, never pigs.  It all started the year I decided to change the theme of my 6th grade classroom.  Several other teachers......
  ~ Carmen For those of you who don’t know me very well, a little background history.  I have had chronic headaches/migraines since I was a little girl.  I keep a dull headache about 24/7 and have migraines 2-3 times a week.  Even though I always try to tough it out, sometimes it does put......
