    Not Telling
  1. My daughter told me a great joke with respect to group projects: My dying wish would be to have all of my former group members lower me into my grave. That way they can let me down one last time.
  2. We just got back from staying at the Poly resort. We have been to Disney and stayed at the resort numerous times. Let me just say that we are definitely NOT a fan of the new fastpass system. We had to say ahead of time which 3 rides we wanted and then the website would give us 4 options that would work with those rides. You can not pick to fastpass across parks and you only get the three a day. We found that often we went to the park and found that we didn't really need the fast passes that we asked for and would have much rather choosen something else. They have removed all of the normal fastpass machines at the Animal Kingdom and according to the working castmembers were shortly removing other machines from the parks. ARGH I would much rather have the old fastpass system! The only parts of the new system I like are the braclets for room keys/charging/entering the parks/pictures. We are seat of the pants planners and thus don't really plan out our whole vacation and restaurants 60 days out. We actually stopped using the online restaurant reservations and just walked up to the restaurants to ask for openings.
  3. Living close to Quebec I have definitely heard from many families about their issues with attempting to home school in Quebec. No matter how good they are at organizing and providing their curriculum plans, they seem to be rejected. There has even been mention of attempting to go "over the head" of the school superintendents to try to have their problems recognized. They are often threatened with a call to Child Services.
  4. Interesting, creepy and actually kinda funny all at the same time. I couldn't help but chuckle at someone without a head being such a good shot. Not to mention, the policeman saying " Do you think he can hear us? He doesn't even have ears!" :001_smile:
  5. I have a BS in Cognitive Science (combined Computer and Psych degree....back when AI was such a popular concept) and an MBA. My husband has a BS in Computers.
  6. When you initially multiplied through by m, you have to multiply the whole left side by m. So you end up with: m * (n/m - p) = r * m Multiplying each term on the left by m you get: n - pm = rm n = rm + pm
  7. No butter tarts don't have any custard. As I believe someone mentioned before, they are pretty much tart versions of pecan pie (without the pecans but sometimes with raisins). I'm in Ottawa and must say that at most restaurants we eat the same foods as any American restaurant. Even though Ottawa is just across the river from the province of Quebec, we don't really eat tortiere or poutine very often at all. I do however LOVE salt and vinegar chips (especially salt and malt vinegar) and would definitely miss real maple syrup. Now I have a question for those below the border. What is barbeque? Here it is a thing we do. We have hotdogs and hamburgers or steak cooked on the BBQ and we call it a barbeque. I have heard the word used as a noun sometimes in the States. What is this?
  8. Tennant is a favourite here as well. I like Clara. It always seems like she and the Doctor are playing together (best friends). I haven't been really impressed with the episodes though. I'm not sure why but they are just sort of meh....
  9. My daughter and I like the right one as well. The bookshelf appears to hang low on the other one. :)
  10. I am so not looking forward to this with my teens. My daughter (gr11) has already pointed out to me that there are things called "promposals". She says you can catch some on Youtube. Boys asking girls to prom with an airplane banner. She heard about a girl nearby who was asked by following rose petals into a room that he had decked out at the school. I've told her to please not expect this kind of thing (her boyfriend is very down-to-earth). I don't know where all of this comes from. I asked her what kind of wedding proposal these girls expect if this is just being asked to prom! Very strange.....I guess this is the generation gap....
  11. Ouch......that sounds incredibly uncomfortable. I hope all goes well today.
  12. Thank you all...it is great and heart-warming to have this response. It has been a bad new year here with very sick parents and now this news. My husband hasn't been without a job in 20 years. With 3 kids and 1 applying to universities next year, things are very stressful. I'm sure I'm not the only one going through these types of problems so thank you so much for the thoughts/prayers.
