I am sooooo happy for this as he is so not ready for the environment of middle school.


I totally agree with this statement. She seems very safe at the moment.

Chet, if we were in any other local school district Eli would also be in middle school next year. Fortunately, our town keeps 6th grade in the elementary schools and middle is only 7 and 8. I am sooooo happy for this as he is so not ready for the environment of middle school.

This is what we have here, K-6 is elementary, though 6-9 is junior high (I guess what you call middle), and 10-12 is high school.

When I was a kid, all grades went to the same school. In fact, we all sat in the same room. We sat on wood benches, and the floors were dirt. Windows had no glass in them, and every week or two, a bear would come and eat one of the kids (two of the small ones)


I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!

Didn't you read from stone tablets and write on a board with a piece of burnt wood?

They didn't have fire then. For that matter, the "windows" were also the sole entrance.They just scraped into the walls of the cave with smaller rocks.

I see you learned nothing from the experience. How's your hunting and gathering skills?

No doubt you had to walk 10 miles each way to school too, and uphill both ways. :lol:

Nah. They'd invented fire by the time John came along. And my generation developed "bricks". :{)#

Greetings all, I have been bit of a stranger around here lately as things are really busy at the moment and I am spending nearly every day in London with an early train in and not getting home till late

One advantage of the train ride is that I am getting through a few books. I read "
The girl with the dragon tattoo" last week, it's a very good book so yesterday I downloaded the recent film of it (with Daniel Craig) not a great film and to be honest, if I had not read the book I don't think I would have known what was going on.

The first snow arrived yesterday so I am looking forward to taking the dogs out in it a little later on.

I have just spent a good hour catching up on the thread, too much going on to multi-quote. Stay well and have fun all xxx

Hi stranger

Hello everyone - just as Neil, I've been quite busy lately. We've had extremely (for here) cold temperatures as well as a bit of snow. Perfect skiing conditions! Being - for once - at home today, I've played a bit with the plants on my balcony ;-)a

Sad tomato....

Yeah weird, Europe is getting record lows, while we are basking in the sun. Temps peaked at (15°C 59°F) yesterday, it was absolutely gorgeous.

It was 70F here the other day :shock:

G'MAE, All!

As this is a very important day of celebration for us US'ers, and as I'll be busy in the celebrating later, I thought I'd post this now.

I want to thank all of you for being so encouraging during this series. It's been so different from all the others, I wasn't sure how it would go over.

Just goes to show you guys are tops.

*claps like Zane* Great series Dan! Thank you :)

I have just posted a gallery of pictures on Facebook of the girls in the snow. Its our first snow of the year, the dogs seemed to like it. It is really strange yesterday there was no snow and it felt so cold today we have a full covering of the stuff and it feels almost mild.

Harely is a great looking dog and Teresa is stunning in any setting. Sookie has an interesting look to her. Kinda like sea weed, lol!

May not be back on for a bit. I have been selected to set up a different area, and have about 6 weeks to get everything ready, including training volunteers for the job. I think I am ready for the challenge, but it may take quite a bit of my time. We are also having the vet come back on Wed. for Spike - he has lost weight again, and was not eating, so our vet ran some blood work (which luckily came back in good shape), but he is dehydrated, so starting Wed, we are going to be giving him some injections of fluids and steroids for other issues he is having, and see where it goes from there.

I am sure we will be here when you return. Skritches to Spike.

Hope he feels better fast.

Shooting theatre with the 5DII means freeing up hard drive space with approximately 8 G per performance. So I've moved all but the 2011 "fun" pictures...they will commence when we leave for the SB party this afternoon since 31+G will take several hours to copy over.

Feels good to have over 100 G free space again on the C:/drive.

Trifle bit of useless information on what I've been doing this weekend.

Good to know what you are up too ;)
