  1. Wow! Thanks! Both Gatorland and the Alligator Farm look like the low-key kind of places that would work. St. Augustine also has a National Park, I think, for the oldest settlement. And the ocean.
  2. Anyone from Florida have any experience with zoos, etc. where DD11 could pet/hold an alligator? There seem to be a lot of such places when I google it. Most seem quite expensive. She isn't a large-group person with her ASD and ADHD, so we're hoping for something low-key. We aren't from Florida, so we aren't familiar with the cities there.
  3. Yay! I finished my library books before they are due! 46. "The Rational Bible: Exodus - God, Slavery, and Freedom" by Dennis Prager. Yes, THAT Dennis Prager. I assume his interpretation here is a fairly typical Jewish interpretation, so it was interesting to compare (& occasionally contrast) it to my Latter-day Saint interpretation. 45. "A Better Heart: The Impact of Christ's Pure Love" by Tom Christofferson. (LDS) 44. "That We May Be One: A Gay Mormon's Perspective on Faith & Family" by Tom Christofferson. (LDS) 43. "Surviving Columbine" by Liz Carlston. (LDS)
  4. 43. "Surviving Columbine" by Liz Carlston. (LDS) There were several Latter-day Saint students who knew each other from church who survived Columbine. Liz was one, and she interviewed several others to tell the story from their perspective. 42. "The Right Side of History" by Ben Shapiro. 41. "Guerilla Learning" by Grace Llewellyn and Amy Silver. 40. "Don't Burn This Book" by Dave Rubin. 39. "The Madness of Crowds" by Douglas Murray. 38. "The Case of the Gypsy Good-bye" by Nancy Springer.
  5. 41. "Guerilla Learning" by Grace Llewellyn and Amy Silver. 40. "Don't Burn This Book" by Dave Rubin. 39. "The Madness of Crowds" by Douglas Murray. 38. "The Case of the Gypsy Good-bye" by Nancy Springer. 37. The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline" by Nancy Springer. 36. "The Case of the Peculiar Pink Fan" by Nancy Springer. 35. "The Case of the Bizarre Bouquet" by Nancy Springer. 34. "The Case of the Left-Handed Lady" by Nancy Springer. 33. "Stuff Matters" by Mark Miodownik. Audible Book. 32. "Temple Grandin: How the Girl Who Loved Cows Embraced Autism a
  6. Whoopsie! It looks like it's been two months since I posted books. I got to read the second Enola Holmes book when my "hold" turn finally came up, and the others were just on the shelf. The last one was slightly unsatisfactory, as it seemed sort of abrupt. 38. "The Case of the Gypsy Good-bye" by Nancy Springer. 37. The Case of the Cryptic Crinoline" by Nancy Springer. 36. "The Case of the Peculiar Pink Fan" by Nancy Springer. 35. "The Case of the Bizarre Bouquet" by Nancy Springer. 34. "The Case of the Left-Handed Lady" by Nancy Springer. 33. "Stuff Matters" by Ma
  7. Unfortunately, that seems to just steer back around to the same bot I can't get through.
  8. The WTM is the biggest community I'm part of, so I thought I'd ask. I got hacked, and FB disabled my account "for my security," but not before the hacker changed my email, password, etc. Now I can't get past the FB help bot to fix it, because it wants to send the authentication to the email that's not mine. I need a real person! Grrr!
  9. I've started a lot of books since I last posted, but didn't finish many. So many books back to the library half read! 26. "For the Love of Europe" by Rick Steves. I read the actual, physical book this year, so I could enjoy the pictures. 25. "Animal Farm" by George Orwell. Audible book. We did "1984" in AP English back in the day, but I never got around to Animal Farm until now. 24. "The Case of the Missing Marquess" by Nancy Springer. 23. "Harry Potter und der Stein der Weisen" by J.K Rowling. Audible book. 22. "Blackout" by Candace Owens. 21. "An Excellent Mys
  10. Thanks, all! I'll pass them on to her.
  11. All Knowing Hive, My niece is about to start Advance Life Support training, and is just finishing up a pre-course through the Red Cross. She says she had a hard time learning the material, "especially for ECG and arrhythmia." She's looking for something other than quizlet she can use to help her study. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  12. Missed posting last week while I babied my dying computer along to preserve my data until my new computer arrived. Everything seems to be safely transferred over, and I'm back in business. Let's see if I can find all my reads and listens, two week's worth, probably not in correct order. Thanks to Audible, I've "read" more fiction this year than I have in years. 24. "The Case of the Missing Marquess" by Nancy Springer. I put a hold on this right after I saw the movie, and it finally came in. Hopefully the hold I just placed on the second book doesn't take as long. 23. "Harry Potter u
  13. He's not sure what he wants to major in. He used to always say Mechanical Engineering, but he's not crazy about math. (He does okay with it, but doesn't like it.) We thought he might get started with General Studies and see what catches his interest most.
  14. For those who might have done both, if DS18 (2E) and I want to see if he's got the executive skills to handle college classes (we are looking at an online degree), would working through an open courseware class or two give us a realistic feel?
  15. I didn't know there were so many! I read "El Dorado" years ago, and I'm just finishing "I will repay." I find it funny every time she describes her heroines as having "tiny" hands. Even though I am a short woman, I have to buy gloves in the men's department to get them to fit. But the mobs in the street don't sound as foreign as they did when I first read her books 25 years ago. This line from "I will repay" sounded a little too real: "One word from Déroulède now would have caused an open riot, and in those days of self defence against the mob was construed into enmity against the pe
