The BBC series is just hysterical; both my boys loved it, although I don't think Andrew got a lot of it. Just tonight he was telling us he had taught his classmates lots of new words, like "depressed," which I am sure he got from Marvin (not that he doesn't hear it around, but that's where he really...

There's no spell check, grammar check, internet, or parents to help with this!

I've read a lot of back-and-forth debate on this topic; I am not convinced the grading of it is quite as simplistic (long=good, regardless of facts, for example) as some people have charged, and on the other side I know the evaluations can only be as accurate as the skills of the readers. I am incli...

Julie B, both my boys are totally into Star Wars; I know both can repeat substantial portions of dialogue from each and every movie, as well as talk at great length about the characters, weapons, and forms of transport. Andrew started watching the Star Wars movies a lot earlier than Stephen, because...

We had pretty much decided we'd let Stephen (10) see it with us in the theater and then make a choice about Andrew (7); sounds like he is going to have to wait for the DVD version when he's a little older. He's been warned about this already and is NOT happy. I agree that I'd rather have the movie b...

Looks like the crockpot is big tonight :grin: We're having crockpot cranberry chicken (really easy, really fabulous, liked even by those who don't like cranberries!), corn on the cob, and mango.

When I went to the library to get one of the Nursery Crimes series (or whatever it was called, by Ayelet somebody-or-other) that you had suggested, I also got the book next to it... The Feng Shui Detective by Nury Vittachi. Easy read, a little bit goofy and off-beat, learned some interesting feng sh...

It's Andrew's birthday and he got to choose, so it will be pizza :grin: I have a few strawberries in the fridge and will get more if I have a chance, but it's not essential. As of this a.m., he hadn't decided what he wanted for dessert. However, I am making hand crank ice cream with his class today ...

Funny you should mention about the bumper stickers...he actually had ordered some that had a derogatory comment (can't recall what) to go around sticking on SUVs and had just discovered that the order had been sent with one of the words spelled wrong! Check out this link; it's to the article I menti...

Kristy, this was not one incident; it was damage done to multiple cars on one neighborhood street and either two or three car dealerships. All of it occured on one night, but they stopped and did this stuff multiple times and did a moderate amount of driving in-between (the neighborhood and one deal...

And do I get to eat the rest of the container of frosting and the remainder of the bag of chocolate chips while I wait for whatever event the brownies were made for?

MONKEY BREAD Here's the recipe I use (sometimes I use white sugar instead of brown, but the brown is nice). Pretty much idiot-proof, but not good for the cholesterol level. 4 cans biscuits 1 c. butter 2 c. brown sugar and 4 tsp. cinnamon mixture Cut each biscuit into 1/4 pieces. Roll each piece in t...

Since this happened right near where I live, I've followed this whole story from the beginning. I have no love in my heart for SUVs, especially in a geographic area so incredibly smog-prone, but this was wrong, wrong, wrong. There was a big article in the paper a week or two ago about the claim that...

OMG, Rhonda...I am in a serious drool state here. This gets printed out; I think you are far enough away that my fixing it wouldn't be any competition for your title as the Ice Cream Cake Queen :D I'll call it "Rhonda's I.C. Cake"!

I will duck as I tell you that our irises have already bloomed and gone by, and our gladiolas are 18" high and starting to bud. Our tomatoes and peppers went in several weeks ago. We get the veggies from Home Depot or similar, and the bulbs have all been from people thinning out their gardens, so I ...
