    I can’t believe Locust Street didn’t show up on that list. Every town around here has a Locust Street.

    The Japanese have been doing this for years. But thanks for the video. It reminds me how it’s done.

    I am on staff with a convention that includes furries and people dressing up as various characters. They are ordinary people just wanting to have some fun. You know there ARE other ways to have fun besides going out and getting drunk.

    I went to see The Book of Life. It has a Día de los Muertos theme. Disclaimer: I am a red, white, and blue-blooded, Constitution-loving American….but I am also a Spanish teacher (I love languages!). I don’t like Halloween because everyone seems to focus on the blood, gore, and guts. But Day of the Dead is like Memorial Day with a party! Much more fun. The movie was cute and I loved the idea of the Land of the Remembered. The story was good and I liked the music.

    The article failed to mention that the real name of the school is Wahlert Catholic High School. It’s a private high school and most of the families are well-to-do. Students were taking vacations with their families that the teachers would never be able to afford. I know because I once worked there.

    I absolutely loved the first Michael Vey book. Very interesting concepts for “super powers.” However, in each successive book, the villain got darker and darker and I don’t know if I can keep reading the series. Re-reading them was very disturbing to me.

    Where’s the bathroom?

    It’s not just that. Legal casinos are opening up around the country and people don’t have to travel to Atlantic City or Nevada to gamble any more. If those out-of-work casino employees are willing to move to another state, the fact that they are experienced could help them find a job at another casino in another state. There IS life in fly-over country!

    All I can say to her is that there is a time and a place for everything. I quit my job (the army) when I got married and started a family. Five grown children later I went back to school and got a teaching license and now I am a teacher. Woman CAN have it all. I just suggest they don’t do it all at the same time. My mother was home for me, I was home for my children. Being a mother is an incredibly important job.

    King David did that and look what happened to him.

    Seriously? You really believe homeschooled kids live in a protective bubble? I homeschooled all five of my kids and we regularly went on field trips and they spent a lot of time interacting with adults. As teenagers I encouraged them to do a lot of on their own when I felt they were ready. My daughter interviewed for a job when she was a teenager and the interviewer said she was much more mature and self-assured than most teens he interviewed. Instead of being boxed up in a school room, my children were out seeing the world before the rest of their peers. So, yeah, bubblewrap your kids and never let them leave the school room.

    I live near the border of a good state and a bad state and I refuse to cross the state line and take my business to the bad state because they will not honor my state’s permit.

    I homeschooled my kids and I can’t stand the thought that someone might be “watching” us simply because I chose to homeschool. My five children are all in their 20′s now and good, upstanding citizens. Not everyone who homeschools needs to be “watched.”

    I don’t know what everyone is freaking out about. Genetically it’s not a good idea because of possible birth defects to their children, but other than that these people didn’t know about their connection, so what’s the big deal?

    I like this. The only real jewelry I wear is my wedding band. My watch has a calculator and stopwatch. My necklace is actually a yarn cutter. And my bracelet has moveable beads, so it is actually an abacus that I can use to count rows while I’m knitting. I kid you not, all my jewelry has a practical use.

    Be sure to burn the typewriter ribbon. There was an episode of NCIS where McGee was using an old-fashioned typewriter to write his novel, but someone was still learning the plot almost as soon as he wrote it. He finally figured out they were digging his typewriter ribbon out of the trash and reading his novel off that. Of course people often re-use the ribbon a few times until there isn’t enough ink left.

    I’ve always said that any game that requires that much padding to play (American football) shouldn’t be played at all, especially by children. I like soccer because I can see what those handsome studs look like. American football players look like mindless robots.

    A Furry is a person dressed in a furry costume. A Plushy is what we used to call a stuffed animal, like a Teddy Bear. Now they call them plushies. Maybe that just sounds classier than “stuffed animal.”

    And if you want to easily memorize the Declaration of Independence, the Fifth Dimension set it to music and recorded it on their album Portrait. The track is actually called “Medley”, but it’s a combination of “Declaration” and two other songs back to back. You can download it for 99 cents from

    Very good chance that this is a hoax. The last I heard, soda cans are filled in the factory upside-down. It’s really hard for anything to accidentally or on purpose be put into a soda can.
