  1. There's lots of drama in our neighborhood as well. We take bets as to how long certain signs will stay. During the last election, one of our neighbors put his candidate's name on his grass by only fertilizing that area so the name was in his lawn. Can't steal that. 🙂 One of the signs in our neighborhood now has two cameras pointed at it, but it was defaced anyway. I am sorry that elections are so polarizing.
  2. If you're part of a homeschool co-op, what is your co-op doing in response to COVID? Are you meeting? Do you have any restrictions?
  3. Thanks for the suggestions. We have a large age range, but the specific group that I'm hoping to make happy is the teen to young adult group. I'm not even sure where we're staying in the area, but we have transportation so we're willing to travel around.
  4. Our family will be spending a few days in Orlando in early December for a family reunion. Any suggestions for things to do with a large group that aren't too expensive? We're more of a beach/hiking/natural beauty kind of family than a Disney/crowded places kind of family -- even before the virus, and now we definitely want to avoid that type of place.
  5. I wouldn't count on a fever being the best indicator. A family of five who are friends of ours all got COVID this summer and none of them ever had a fever over 99.
  6. We installed one last year in the addition of our house. Our addition is over 2,000 sq feet, is well insulated and has new windows, so those could be factors. We only have one unit and it takes care of most of the addition, although we sometimes turn on a propane stove in the basement. We live in PA and needed no secondary heat source for last winter.
  7. We loved the Tetons and did lots of hiking there. We had a 2 year old at the time who talked non-stop, so that kept the bears away. 🙂 Seriously, just keep making noise. They do try to avoid humans, although we did end up running across one on the trail. It just waddled away. Read up on the precautions that are posted and you'll be fine. The only place that I visited in Jackson Hole was the laundromat. My dh took the older kids rafting. They had fun. We're pretty low-key on vacation. Hiking, fishing, more hiking and the Tetons are great for that.
  8. The murder was true. It happened near me, but it was a murder/suicide and I'm not sure it was related to the virus. Sad though.
  9. You must be in my co-op!! Yes, it's all the co-op moms sharing it. (sigh) I listened to it, evaluated it, listened to counter-arguments posted by trusted sources and then shared those. No one wants to read the counter arguments -- so frustrating.
  10. Sorry if someone already said this.... I don't have time to read all the comments; but do those people buy insurance? Life, health, property, etc. ?? If they follow the same logic, they shouldn't buy insurance either. They should have faith. They also shouldn't have any money set aside for an emergency. They should have faith that God will take care of them. Did they get any vaccines? Do they seek medical treatment when they have a health problem? At least be consistent.
  11. We have a dog and three cats PLUS two extra cats that have appeared and hang out in our barn eating all of our cat's food. 😞 And, we added a baby bunny during the SIP.
