When I travel, I base an unknown community's general safety by this barometer - how much of the Walmart is locked up.
When I travel, I use the local.Walmart's level.of locked up items to figure out the safety.level.of the local area if I don't know.
I only changed my registration from independent to republican to vote in Florida's primary first for Ron Paul and then Trump.
This reminds me of the stories about Saddam Hussain's people throwing babies out of incubators during the Bush era to get us drawn into the war in Iraq that later turned out to be false.
Ugh, I'm old.
I love my Brother Laserjet color. Starting up this homeschool year I printed off about 1,000 pages for the core stuff I need for the year. I've had this one about 4 years. My previous model I had about 8. The last one dying was more my fault than anything from the brand.
It isn't the right solution for everyone. I have a mix of friends some have tried homeschooling and it was not the right choice for their kids. But, if you choose to send your kids to school, you should be an active parent in what is going on in that school. You should know their teachers. You should know the admins. You'd be shocked at how many parents don't know the name of their child's elementary school teacher or even what grade they are in. My kids were in public school for a few years. I think the education they got was fine... but I was an extremely active parent while they were there.
Sounds like they were told what to think, not how to think and sheltered them too much. Protecting them from all this garbage does, unfortunately, mean teaching them about it at an appropriate age so they can protect themselves when we are not there.
I will protect my children, but I will not make them woefully ignorant and naive to the dangers that exist.
Homeschooled kids are the normal ones now.
Two words: Broken homes.
I f***ing hate shopping.
Some of my local breweries are worse than what the nationals are doing.
Busch Gardens is giving out free beer this summer. I noticed the pull for the draft was just a plain piece of wood. No branding. One sip and it was obvious that they are offloading their Bud Light.
FYI for those that don't know, InBev sold off Busch Gardens to Seaword over a decade ago.
Frankly, Grady catches Disney employees too often for comfort.
This shit is why I do not tell my kids to find an employee if lost. I tell them to look for a parent with kids.
Edit: I mean in general. We don't go to Disney.
Self-serve supermarkets were once considered an innovation. The first one that was true full self-service was the Piggly Wiggly and opened on September 6, 1916. Having a shopkeeper hand you everything is old school and moving backwards.
Yes, I meant a menstrual cup.
I have sought out alternatives for all.my CereVe products.
I specifically haven't shopped at Target in ages because I do not feel comfortable there because if my young daughters have to use the restroom I don't know who is in there.
That's the least of the massive issues with that industry.
Women used to have sharpened hat pins and they weren't just for holding hats on.
I'm about 95% to being a total teetotaler. I've never been a big drinker, just an occasional one. All this crap is making me wanna just forgo it all together.
100%. Many people are that stupid and weak minded.
I make my own soda. It isn't that hard once you have the setup.
Full disclosure, my husband did the heavy lifting part of getting the system all set up, but you can just watch videos to see how to do it.
At the risk of leaving enough info to dox myself... OMG! It was insane. You could feel it in your bones. The windows rattled so hard! About 10.minutes after it launched, it started raining sand down where I am staying.
100% worth the trip out here!
I did not know that.
