My granddaughter's given name is Lucinda. From the day of her birth, she has been called Lucy. Her father felt that Lucy was a nickname and that she should have a "real" given name. Her mother...

It seems to me

that the teacher's lounge is a part of the school and therefore part of the responsibilities of the building custodian.

That being said, there should never be dishes in the sink. If there are,...

Drove three different versions

of a Dodge Grand Caravan and a full sized van. When the kids moved out and I reached 200,000 miles on my Caravan, I gave it away and bought a Honda CRV. I love my CRV. It gets great gas mileage,...

There's a student

in my school who needs a chair because he has a degenerative disease. He CAN sit on the floor, but his doctor recommends that he sit in a chair because it is better for him. If he does sit on the...

Not classics, but enjoyable

A. Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library.

So the blue

in blue cheese is mold. One has to wonder if the fuzzy stuff is edible or not.

I think I

agree with the coach. The meets are part of of being a team. I see it as encouraging sportsmanship and camaraderie. It can also give incentive to practice harder during the week.

Hot or cold

I like plain cereals like Rice Chex, Cheerios or Raisin Bran.

I like Cream of Wheat, Oatmeal, and Grits, all prepared the same way with butter, salt and pepper.

During the school year,...

I don't know anything about Flamingo

...but like anything else, there's a lot of variety of choices on youtube, and depending on your choice, youtube can be a good or bad thing.

For example, yesterday my seven year old...

Well, if DH

feels so strongly about it, perhaps HE can be in charge of the gas bill for now on. Or even ALL the bills.

Ummm. Suggest that the therapists provide you with the multiple visual schedules. If he needs sensory items, it should be in his IEP. If it is in his IEP, then the school district has to provide...

First, you might want to look at temporary employment agencies. I have been hired for full time business positions three different times after being placed by those agencies in temporary positions. ...

Before high school

my daughter's only sport was soccer. During HS, she added cross country and swimming to her repertoire. She wasn't outstanding at either of them, but she enjoyed being part of the team and working...

The "Normal" load is

41 minutes. If I do a load on hot water, extra deep cleaning, with a second rinse it's 72 minutes. There's an express wash that's 32 minutes.

Hair salons use it, so it should be able to handle your cat hair.

Double recommend

The Queen's Thief series. More fantasy than Sci-Fi though.

The following I would all classify as either YA Sci-Fi or a mix of Sci-Fi/Fantasy

The Trials of Morrigan Crow
What came from the...

Of the two houses

I like the location of the first one, but the charm of the second one. At a fraction of the cost, I'd go for the second one, kitchen and all. (If I were to win the lottery.)

Wait till she asks

It appears that your daughter doesn't have any real interest in learning to cook, or she wouldn't have gotten to the place she is with the skill set she has. I'm guessing you've always done the...

And the best thing

about outside duty is that you just greet and shoo them into the building. Very little crowd control or student management. You get to smile, wave, say good moring, have a great day! Maybe tease...

The weather's fine right now

I would start with the duty and enjoy the opportunity to greet the kids and parents cheerfully and get to know the population of your school. That's what will make a good impression.

Later on,...
