A friend and I saw it yesterday, and both of us thought it was extremely well done. I especially enjoyed it because years ago I read a biography of Harriet Tubman, and I was amazed at her courage,...

Previous posters are right. You can't do everything, nor can you continue to miss work. Your mother is being selfish by demanding that she be taken care of in a manner that will cause you...

I'm sorry, but

I don't believe you! Your statement that you could actually pull out what you needed without effort is just too incredible. In my extensive experience, that has never happened. LOL

When did teachers become punching bags for angry kids? Why are teachers now expected to accept being victims of verbal and physical abuse? So sad! And so wrong! :mad:

Who agrees with Hifi. I ordered a product (Tepe go-between toothbrushes) directly from the manufacturer and then later ordered more of the same product from Amazon. I noticed a distinct difference...

The parent said, "You can't expect him to resolve these issues on his own."

That was your cue to respond with, "He will NEVER learn the skills he needs to stand on his own if HE doesn't start...

Like me, or not

There's a great saying in Spanish which, loosely translated, says, "You are not a gold coin to be loved by everybody." I remind myself of this whenever the need arises, and that helps me to just let...
