hammer and tongs

How do we put the hands back in schools? I guess we have to go after it "hammer and tongs," meaning "with great energy and force." The phrase comes from blacksmithing.

As we now have little opportunity to see men at work except on TV, we can expect our language and metaphors to become less colorful, and few children will know what the heck Zippy is talking about.

Today the 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students at Clear Spring will continue making toy cars for distribution through our local food bank.
