No it's not an April Fool joke. And it's not just the name calling, although I know that's a big part of it. There's been some "behind-the-scenes" action on this as well. Many of us have been in...

The only way we ever cook fish is on the grill, because as much as I love the taste, I hate the smell. We usually put it in some foil, drizzle it with lemon juice, and grill. I don't like a lot of...

If it was in the constitution and the parents signed it, they agreed to it. In that case, no question, they need to participate. At this point they are not teaching their children anything about...

He did when we had a dishwasher, but I'd have go back and redo it because I could get WAY more dishes in than he could.

We don't have a dishwasher in our new house and he's pretty good at sharing...

I keep mine in the kitchen and take them with dinner. I leave them right out on the counter so I don't forget. I've never gotten nauseous from them, but have always taken them with food.

Usually anything with an SPF of at least 15. Chapstick and Burt's Bees both have good ones with the sunscreen.

I agree, consider the Outer Banks. DH and I went last spring and we loved it! It wasn't beach weather yet when we went (April) but it is such a cool place to visit.

That's so cute! I've also heard of teachers hanging a picture of the President up in their room and directing kids to "tell the President" when they have a problem.

I've carried mine on, but always in their original bottles. No one even glanced at them though. You'll be fine-- it's actually recommended that you keep all prescription meds with you in case your...

I've had to white-out grades during years when all my best students were back-to-back in the alphabet. I'd just start writing A-A-A-A.... then all of a sudden I'd realize I went a little too far...

Me too, me too! I thought it sounded like such a good idea, but it drove me NUTS. I especially hated the e-mail telling me what time it was and to go to bed. I'll go to bed when I feel like it,...

I don't think I was ever sweet. I was probably mistaken for sweet for a long time, but the truth is I was just incredibly shy. Now that I've come out of my shell, I'm still (I hope) caring and...

I have to laugh because posters have mentioned just as many books that I enjoyed as books that I dislike. Just goes to show how subjective the idea of "a good book" is. I hope we all remember this...
