Re: High school honors courses?

That's a good point Sherrie - about getting into honors/AP in high school. Our middle school has an "Excel" program - an advanced (vs regular) level. Most of the time, you have to be in that level class to be recommended for honors or AP at the high school. I'm sure there are exceptions - ...

Re: High school honors courses?

Ben does honors - it is a bit more of a challenge, but can't get college credit (not AP). He has actually opted out of AP (as of now) in his graduation plan. I took all AP and missed getting college credit on all by 1 point. So I don't feel really strongly about pushing it. I know at our school - th...

Re: Printer/Scanner Suggestions

I got a new one in January - after *years* of limping along with a little Dell that only did printing. I got an HP one - scanner, printer, copier. LOVE IT. Why in the world did I wait so long??? It was a deal at Target which was even better! :D

Re: Kids in College - computer, laptop, ipad ?

All the college kids I know have laptops.

I'm not a fan of e-books either. I have a nook that doesn't even stay charged (though I will fire it up for a trip next week for convenience). Something about *feeling* a book that I like!

Re: Spinoff Deux: Smartphone=how old?

My kids all have phones - but no smart phones. Though with Verizon, the options for a good deal on a non-smart phone are quickly fading away. Guess that's the route they want everyone to go. I have told mine that when their contracts come up, if they want one, they can have one. But they have to pay...

Re: Do you think Newt is electable?

Well - I will be the dissenting vote and say I think he might.

He's not moderate - and many Republicans are looking for a more conservative choice given the current administration. Newt is that - certainly compared to Mitt. Just depends on how many far-righters show up.

Re: RSVP website

I have used signup genuis with our youth - mostly to plan things where the parents need to bring something (like a dinner). But I can see where you could use it to RSVP. We struggle with getting responses from people. Email doesn't seem to be effective. Not even Facebook really (we have a youth grou...

Re: ? About The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I agree with the others - not appropriate for a 7th grader. It's graphic - sexually and violently.

Re: Music/Playlist offshoot

I listen to my iPod when walking or cutting grass. Sometimes I will listen to the songs we have on iTunes when I'm working in my office. Radio is on at work, but it's just a low background noise. In the car, it is books on CD.

Re: Small pet peeves

My current biggest little peeve...

Laundry basket (with clean, folded laundry) sitting at the bottom of the stairs to be carried up. FOUR other people can walk right past it and not take it.

Re: (Re)Upholstering

Just the *thought* of doing that scares me..... There is a guy in town that does them for a very reasonable price. When I have done it, I have used him. I think that trying to do it myself is just one of those things that would frustrate me because I wouldn't be able to do it well.

Re: I hate it when... (fluffy)

I hate it when you are attempting to drive a "safe" distance from the car in front of you on the highway and 3 cars whip in the space in front of you.
