Blog Post #200!

My how time flies! With your support, Mr. B Ed Tech blog has now reached its 200th post! To mark this occasion, I decided to do a little research on the number 200.

  • In Monopoly, 200 is the amount of dollars a player gets for passing GO.
  • In Racing, 200 is the number of NASCAR races that legendary driver Richard Petty has won.
  • In Health and Wellness, 200 or lower is the desirable cholesterol number that corresponds to lower risk of heart disease.

Thank you for your continued support!
