Syllabication of Avery

I find it difficult to pronounce “Avery” as two syllables — Ave/ry. I can do it isolatedly, but I have to make a concerted effort to do so.

In normal speech, it always comes out with a very...

Historical Dramas

I really like Masterpiece’s Victoria on PBS. (You would have to “make a donation” to PBS to get access to the previous seasons. The minimum “donation” is $5 per month, but you can cancel at any...

My surprise peonies

My surprise peonies. Last summer — our second year in this house — we removed a bunch of large overgrown bushes near our back deck, and I discovered a peony bush that I had never known was there, as...

Doris Day

I always loved Doris Day too. I was intrigued with the 60s; and, to me, she was the quintessential 60s woman. Pillow Talk and Move Over, Darling were two of my favorite movies as a kid, and I liked...

Round Rock

Try posting this in the Lounge instead. I’m pretty sure we have a few teachers on here from the Austin area, but they may be retired and therefore not visiting the Busy Board.

LEGO Stories

Funny LEGO quote I overheard from my 11-year-old one day.... (He’s 18 now.)

“Hmmm. I can’t find my wife’s head.”

I hope to never again hear those words uttered in any other context...

German Girls Names

When I was an exchange student in Germany for my junior year of high school, my host family’s German Shepherd’s name was Ilke.(Pronounced EEL-Kuh) When Ilke eventually died, they named their new pup...

Bagpipes

So, an interesting fact... Those of you who have ever breastfed, you know how the sound of a baby crying — any baby, not necessarily your own — can cause your milk to let down?

Apparently bagpipes...

Not pizza-related, sorry...

Hey, twinmom! I’m a Texas (now Georgia) girl, but I’ve spent many summers of my life across the river from you, in Brattleboro. My mom grew up there so I was often there at my grandparents’ house; I...

Phone calls you supposedly made.

I had the same thing happen to me last year and few times,and once even had someone text me and ask who I was and why I had texted them. When I texted back that I hadn’t, they insisted I had and sent...

True

That’s true, I believe, about the edit not appearing in the displayed title on the board, if it’s the title of the original post in a thread. But at least it will show up correctly if someone...

How to edit the title of your post

Every once in a while on here, someone makes a typo in the title of his or her post and then can’t edit the title. Usually the poster adds a comment to the post, acknowledging and correcting the...

The points are for whatever is left in your hand when someone goes out, not for keeping track of as you play. Whenever your group is ready to quit playing, the player with the fewest points wins the...

Ski Pants

I used to see them at Once Upon a Child —- and that was in Houston! I’m sure you can probably find them at local thrift stores. But I know my sister in Ohio used to buy her kids’ snow pants / ski...

Activities for Economics

Try googling “home school resources economics.” When I tried, just now, a lot of listings came up. You might have to sift through and do a lot of skimming, but I bet you will find a variety of ideas...

Re: Subaru commercial

I think it’s timing and circumstance that determines whether that’s a long way to go for wood or not. True, half a mile is technically not very far; but if it’s a matter of:
— “Hey, we need to throw...

Mail Theft

There are apparently ways to “wash” a check so you can write over it and it is not noticeably altered.

In my area, there has been a rash of mail theft directly from the blue USPS mailboxes — both...

MAsped, I appreciate your concern, but no worries. We do have an equal relationship and an equal balance in whose “way” we do things in our home, lives, and relationship. More than anything, it’s...

Pros of garbage disposal

I love having a garbage disposal! In fact, the house we bought two years ago did not have one and I insisted that we get one put in first thing.

I can’t stand scraping plates into the kitchen...

Weird dog eating behavior
