  1. Big Marvel fans here. The older boys and DH were big fans.
  2. https://www.johntaylorgatto.com/all/john-taylor-gatto-passes-away-but-his-spirit-and-work-live-on/
  3. My speech therapist won a couple of million. She and her husband kept their jobs. They remodeled the house and went on a few trips.
  4. Living in Canada, I can tell you that I and my relatives have experienced what Selkie mentions.
  5. The US funds a lot of research. More than Canada. Dh has always been envious how much the US government funds. That is why the company that dh used to work for move to the US. Better funding opportunites.
  6. And does anyone know how much it actually costs to get a drug(the ones that make it) to market, from concept through all trials and FDA regulation? My dh had tested (he out sourced it) about 11 compounds that have already been approved in other countries. He tested these compounds against known drugs used to treat various diseases. A couple of compounds out performed the standard of care for a couple of the diseases he tested. Price tag, $500,000. That was just to get started. The timeline to market is about 4-6 years spending 50-100 million to get it approved. That is one drug. If
  7. Tenby and Taliesin for girls. My husband wanted Llewellyn for a boy.
  8. It is hard to say nothing when you see adult children making poor choices. If it is something serious, I don't bite my tongue. Had I known how much the momma heart could hurt I seriously doubt I would have had as many kids as I do, if at all. Toddlers were far easier. Too bad they couldn't stay young forever.

    I will check out the book. Thanks. I have a degree in Classical History so I want to check out the sites i studied. I like beaches too but going in May not sure how warm the water would be. I swim in the Northumberland Straight every summer so can it be colder than that?? I also don't want to stick to only the main touristy sites either. Hubby wants to see a few places in Rome, and then Athens and Delphi. The rest is whatever I want to do.

    Dh and I are going to Greece and Rome in May 2019 for our 25th. We are going for a month. Any recommendations for must see besides the obvious? Anything off the beaten track? I am overwhelmed with info. Just trying to narrow it down.
  11. It's not my story to tell, it's my dad's.
  12. I have often thought about doing the DNA testing but I won't. it would open up a whole can of worms in my Dad's family. My dad was nicknamed 7 up because of the number of girls he had pregnant at one time. He married one of the girls he had pregnant. My mom raised me on her own. My maternal grandmother told me when I was a little girl about his nickname and that I had half siblings out there somewhere. One girl had twins that she gave up for adoption. Other women were in a relationship with another man and probably passed the child off as theirs and I probably was going to school with t
  13. I was always under the impression they were hs friendly. Dh didn't get that feeling. They can be directly admitted but it requires quite a bit of work proving that the student is capable of doing the work. Lots of hoops to jump through so most homeschoolers I know go U1. Then after that first year apply to their program of choice. I did just ask on a FB group and a mom said that her child got into U1 with her transcript and and letter of completion from Manitoba Ed. So far all U of M has asked of us is the letter of Completion. Ds is applying for U1.
  14. We are applying there now. I have known homeschoolers in the past who have gotten in without having a problem. When Dh and ds went down to admissions a few months ago it didn't seem like they were homeschooling friendly. They got a totally different vibe than what has been touted in the homeschooling circles here that U of M is homeschooling friendly.
