You can

subtitle it. We did, and it made it easier to follow the lyrics, and thus the story line. My girls love it and my grandson (4) knows the lyrics to some of the songs. I'm not sure it lived up to...

Well, I disagree

that's pretty rude. I wouldn't be debating with them, but I would not patronize them ever again. (Coming from someone who wears a mask, but hates the "holier than thou" mask wearing chastisements...

We stayed in a B&B

in Gettysburg which has been noted for being haunted. Still had bullet holes and bullets in the walls from the battle. There were seven of us, so we rented three rooms. I stayed with the two...

Wee Free Men

I tried reading a sequel (or prequel) to this book after I listened to it, but something was missing. The audio reading of this book makes it so much better.

I've seen people

use alternate names. Some of my friends use first and middle names, or nicknames, etc. One of my nieces seems to change her name constantly.

Do you know the team teacher?

The one that taught K and 1?

I would reach out to her, since she will probably be expected to assist your long term substitute (whether she's ready or not!) I would send HER your last year's...

American Academy of Pediatrics/COVID

I didn't know that.

I thought I was just being lazy. I like a clean detergent cup, so I used to dump the detergent then drop the cup on top. Then I'd fish it out and put it back on the bottle after the cycle was over.

My daughter

just bought a lovely drop leaf table and four chairs on Facebook Marketplace for $100. Since you don't plan to have this be a long-term purchase, you might consider looking at used furniture.

Even if you don't have a union

you might have a memorandum of understanding. For example, our MOA states that principals can use up to 10 hours of non-contract time for extra meetings such as faculty meetings. So at some point,...

She's a Master of Science!

My daughter sat for a 3 hour essay examination yesterday morning, and 2 hour multiple choice in the evening and passed them both with flying colors.

Of my five daughters, all five have bachelor...

Some experts

say 3 feet is acceptable. There's so much we don't know. We do know that children are the least likely to get COVID though, so 4-6 feet might be a reasonable amount. Four to six feet and getting...

Might not have a choice

Our school is getting 1:1 apple devices, and every room is getting a cart. The carts are the same size as the Chrome book carts they had before. (About 2x2 and 3.5 feet tall) You might want to...

I'd tell his parents

to allow him to experience the consequences of not engaging. Honestly, I did something similar with my daughter, who was bright, but not doing her homework and thus near to failing. (I don't think...

Johnny and Jimmy had difficulties last year in the same...

Good question...

I don't know about leases, because I buy my cars and keep them as long as possible.

But, one reason I've never leased is because I drive too many miles. Perhaps their lease is very limited in...

If you've bought fonts before

but now have a new version of Microsoft Office, you probably have to reimport all the fonts again. I have a school version as well, and I can see all the fonts I've imported since I got it.

She did?

Wow. The article didn't state that. The article you linked to made it look like it was all the idea of the daughter and her friends. Did you see that someplace else? Do we have a copy of the...
