  1. We enjoyed all of the sci fi that has been mentioned. We also loved Hell on Wheels and Deadwood. For humor, we love Letterkenny. We recently started watching Schitt’s Creek and love that too.
  2. I am so sorry you are in this situation. I know how it is to feel short, unconnected and invisible. I wish your partner would realize you need to be seen as a person who is more than just a caretaker to your children, and that you need to be on a team of more than one. Hugs.
  3. All the girls and women athletes should be speaking out as a unified voice. “Sharing the platform” is ridiculous. I don’t see why the federal government should have anything to do with this. Athletic associations can govern this realm and leave congress to the important work of taxing and militarized international meddling.
  4. Anyone who has ever been male, or taken hormones to transition to male, should be included in male sports only. That is inclusive- they can play, as males. It is also the only arrangement that is fair to the genetically, hormonally female athletes, which is who female sports are intended for. This is such basic common sense. It’s baffling that the feelings of athletes who should not be eligible have taken priority over keeping women’s sports a fair competition between women.
  5. Lotion. I’ve tried all kinds of hair products for this problem. None work as well as just the tiniest amount of lotion on my fingertips.
  6. I would not check yes unless it was something that caused me a current disability. IMO these answers are used to discriminate against applicants. They should only be allowed to ask about current conditions that cause a disability. In the USA:
  7. I get PG Tips at our grocery store. IMO there are no American brands of tea bags that make a good strong tea that tastes good. The closest I've found is Numi Pu-ehr, but it's Pu-ehr so a little mushroomy. If I use Republic of Tea, I need to use about four bags and it's expensive. So I use loose tea instead. But I order it. Mountain Rose Herbs has affordable loose black tea that is nice - I like the Vanilla black - the vanilla is very mild and not sweet. Lately I've discovered Plum Deluxe teas - they are so good I'm drinking through the rest of my teas to get rid of them, and after that I'm only buying Plum Deluxe. I make loose tea in a Bodum mesh diffuser. But when I feel lazy I just throw the tea and water into a cream pitcher (it has a spout) and after it's brewed, I pour it through a strainer into my mug. Unsweetened almond milk and no sugar.
  8. I have a relative who went through something like this. She is very bright, and I think she just couldn't stand being a kid anymore. She ended up dropping out of high school and working, I am guessing multiple jobs since a teen can't work full time. She did get her GED once she was old enough. Last I heard, she was enrolled in a trade school and doing well. I believe the behavioral problems stopped once they stopped trying to make her continue living as a kid and attend high school.
  9. There are private, regionally accredited distance schools. They have nothing to do with public schools. A student enrolled in one is not homeschooled- they are a student of a private school. There are also regionally accredited distance high schools through some universities. Our son is a student at American School (the one in Lansing IL.).
  10. I use paper from our shredder. It’s multicolored and white (junk mail). Festive and free 😃
  11. I love creamed corn ! Just warmed in a bowl - yum ! I also love canned lima beans and canned butter beans. Also canned beets, pears, and peaches. And mandarin oranges. The worst canned item I can think of is spinach - revolting. Canned cooked carrots are my second worst.
  12. I think they still sell that. You can definitely buy canned chop suey vegetables 😬
  13. My mom makes this with cranberries put through a grinder along with chopped celery, apples and walnuts. I can not stand the texture. I like just jello and marshmallows. I used to help her make it so I could steal a mug of hot liquid strawberry jello with no stuff in it, and melt some marshmallows into it .... I drank it like cocoa 😂
  14. I love this when it’s made with leftover turkey and white gravy on toast. It’s pretty much the only way I like turkey that isn’t in deli meat form.
