    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.

    Salt Lake City is listed as the most conservative city in Utah. Is that not a big enough city for you?

    If you have ever stood in front of a classroom and spent 15 minutes trying to get the students to shut up so you can teach, duck tape would sound good to you, too!

    I used Math-U-See with my kids when I home schooled them. I highly recommend it. I was sold when I saw a demo video and for the first time, I could SEE a polynomial! Manipulatives are great for teaching the basic concept, but once it is learned, the student can move on to using the just the numbers to solve the problems.

    You don’t need a high school diploma to go to college. Pass the COMPASS test to get into a community college, then after you get your AA degree, transfer to a four-year college. It’s less expensive that way and you can thumb your nose at the high school.

    I choose to dress modestly because I am more comfortable that way and I raised my daughters to dress modestly. How? I never let them wear sleeveless clothing, shorts, bare midriffs, or low necklines, even when they were toddlers. They never were allowed to have a chance to feel comfortable in immodest clothing when I still had control over what they wore. Looking at someone’s armpits does nothing for me. And if I look down and can see “the Grand Canyon”, then my neckline is too low.

    When will people realize that some high schoolers ask permission to use the restroom and never come back? Elementary school is one thing, but the same problem exists at the high school level. If I am not up in front of the classroom actually teaching, then I give them permission to go if they are doing seatwork, but some never come back and then I get in trouble from the administration because my students are wandering the halls. So… I really the problem?

    Been there, seen that, had a Tokyo businessman in my face just millimeters from my nose. Not a pleasant situation.

    My son’s graduation from basic training at Ft. Jackson was annoyingly disrupted by Pres. Bush deciding to show up for a photo op. It delayed the graduation by a couple of hours and that day was supposed to be all about the soldiers, not about the Prez.

    I grew up in Napa Valley and I was surprised when I learned about 5 years ago that that was a picture of Napa. The valley is actually more rocky than that, but it’s very beautiful. I didn’t appreciate Napa until I moved away. Unfortunately, “Falcon Crest” turned it into a tourist trap and it’s no longer the sleepy little town I grew up in.

    Where’s the show called Bad Student? I did a long term sub job at a junior high in a big city and I spent most of my time trying to get the students to sit in their seats and stop talking to each other long enough for me to teach them anything. Someone forgot to tell them what a teacher standing up in front of the room is for. He/she is up there to teach them something. And they don’t care. That teacher was probably frustrated out of her mind at the behavior of the students in her class. Over 50% of new teachers quit the teaching business after only 5 years. They can’t do the job they were trained to do because the kids won’t sit in their seats and behave.

    If you saw the actual show, you would know the odds were a bit in his favor. He said he looked at the used letter board and the first thing unused was the letter B in the consonants and the letter A in the vowels, so he started with those letters in his line of thinking. It was the first time I recall them ever showing what the used letter board actually looks like.

    How do I fit into all of this? My ancestry is typical European, mostly English. BUT….by my own free will and choice, I decided to study Spanish because I thought languages were interesting (kind of like a secret code) and I became a Spanish teacher. So, because I chose to learn Spanish simply because I liked it and I chose to teach it to others, who am I? Am I a good guy or a bad guy? I’m totally confused as to how you all expect me to fit into this issue. By the way, if it helps any, I am a supporter of the Constitution and do not support illegal immigration in spite of the fact that I can speak Spanish.

    “No other success can compensate for failure in the home.” – David O. McKay

    I got out of the Army on a pregnancy discharge and was a stay-home Mom for the next 20 or so years, even homeschooling my kids. After the kids were raised, I went back to college to get a teaching license and now I am a teacher.

    It’s amazing that these kids can be indoctrinated with anything at all. I am doing a long-term sub job at a middle school and I can’t get them to sit down and shut up long enough to teach them ANYTHING!!
