  1. :iagree: One of my all-time faves. We also really enjoy Sequence. Besides regular Sequence, there is also a States and Capitals version and a Bible version. My kids have always liked Pictureeka. (not sure if I spelled that right...)
  2. A few that we like: Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken Fly Away Home Secondhand Lions Savannah Smiles Labyrinth Annie
  3. I can't fold a fitted sheet or whistle either, but also can't: make Jello peel potatoes (without cutting off some of my own skin) mail a package without mummifying it with tape ...and probably several more things that I can't think of right now :tongue_smilie:
  4. These are two of my favorite resources: Deconstructing Penguins, by Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone All Through the Ages http://www.nothingnewpress.com/atta.shtml
  5. They were for him. Snickerdoodles are the only cookies he will eat. Sometimes I wonder if he is really my child... :D
  6. Might have already been mentioned, but these are things that my son was happy to get: those little cans of cheese dip that you can find on the racks at the check-out (like at WalMart) glow sticks water balloons and small water guns Bomb Bags (If you don't know what these are, google it. They are a BIG hit with boys. You can buy a box of them on amazon) card games water-proof, disposable camera flashlight batteries After-Bite (or something for itchy bug bites) you may want to send extra bug spray, sunscreen, or chapstick in case he has misplaced the original candy that won't melt Pepperidge Farm Snickerdoodles :D
  7. My daughter did TT4 and TT5 in one school year.
  8. I wonder if that is something new that they're doing, because I know we've been streaming on 3 or 4 different devices at the same time before... :bigear:
  9. I play Cityville and Frontierville occasionally; but I am totally addicted to Farmville. :D
  10. Hello everyone :) I haven't been here in a while, but I'm stumped on a math problem and knew that someone here would be able to help me. I really ought to be able to figure this out, but I have no clue... :tongue_smilie: If the total price of something (cost + tax) is $92.75; and the sales tax is 6%, how much was the original price before tax? Please tell me how to figure this out so that I can explain it to my son, lol.
  11. I'm not a smoker - never have been - but I do work in a tobacco store. So far, we don't have any packaging or signage with graphic photos; and I haven't heard anything about it. That doesn't mean it's not going to happen; I just haven't heard anything about it. The major changes that happened in 2010 (that I know of) were that no tobacco products could be self-serve (all have to be behind the counter); they are no longer allowed to use the words "light" or "ultra-light" on their packaging or signage; there are large, bold warnings about the effects of using these products on the packages and signs; and they are still working hard on getting rid of the menthol cigarettes. These changes didn't apply to cigars because they are not regulated by our government. I have customers come in every day and tell me that it's the last time I'll see them because they are quitting... and then they're right back in there again. They know what it's doing to them, and they complain about the prices constantly going up.... but it's a highly addictive drug. The graphic pictures may help some, but probably won't make much difference to most of the smokers.
  12. They are non-fiction companions for some of the books in the series. I think they are usually $4.99 or maybe $5.99.
  13. I hope it is okay that I am bringing this thread back up... I got my WV gift catalog in the mail today, and the girls are really wanting to donate something. We do things for local charities every year, but so far never anything like this. I wanted to check it out; so I googled and found some good things, and some not so good things. How do you know what to believe? Is it a scam or not? I'm glad that I searched through the forum here so that I could read that some of you have had good experiences with WV, but I still wonder what you all think about the reports of it being a scam... :confused: And thank you to those of you who suggested a possible alternative. That would have been my next question. :)
  14. I'd probably put some sort of chocolate in there for most days, but add a bit of money to some of the drawers for a nice surprise.... maybe $5 or $10 here and there. :001_smile:
