    Idog ownership is turning into something you can’t expect to do unless you have a nice cushion of disposable income. 

    >>>Basically, if you want a freakin Pit mix or a hound, you’re in great shape. But any desirable breed or mix, nevermind!

    I am very sad to see this but also validated.  I am looking to be a first-time dog owner, and with plenty of money to throw at the project, willingness to go through any type training necessary, and several young adults who can't wait to take any pooch along on runs, it seems I can't get the attention of anyone placing rescue dogs.

    Also, I am wondering what is wrong with hounds?  Seems I am not good enough to get one.

  2. I live in Massachusetts.  Our governor has explicitly not ordered shelter in place, despite plenty of clamor for it. Encouragement to not be out unnecessarily, sure, but it's very loosely defined.  It's an advisory.  Some towns have issued stricter limitations.  So, I am not sure what the criteria for that report are.   

    Our county has the highest case count in the state at over 2500.  My son left the house today for the first time in more than two weeks.  He wanted to take some pictures near a lake.  He came home without getting out of the car.  He was shocked at how thick the crowds were on the trails and just hanging out in general.

  3. My 16 yo daughter read this and has this to say:

    1st of all this David dude is messed up. like wHaT?!!?

    2) I agree with "Date" that somebody needs to kick David's a$$. I personally would've done it right then and there 🤣 He needs to get knocked in the head sooner or later.

    3) How can David think that he and DD have a "strong connection" if they never ever talk? That was like a 🤦‍♀️ moment

    4) I agree with everybody else: get a new phone and number. Or if the number is too hard since she does gigs and such, at least get a new phone. And maybe even get a phone that isn't an iPhone... okay and last thing... I promise:

    I think it would be awesome if you took her phone with you and went somewhere and see if he shows up. Then you would see if it's her phone that's allowing him to know where she is. I think it would be funny.

    Anyway this David guy is pretty messed up and if I had someone stalking me like that I would be way too afraid to actually still go on with my normal life - so kudos to her.

  4. Please do not quote.  Thank you.

    My daughter is in college.  She hopes to marry some day. She is Christian. She is a teetotaler.  She wants to marry a teetotaler.    

    She has found college males who don’t drink to be very scarce.  When I was in college I knew plenty of guys who didn’t drink at all. 

    Do you know any college males who stay away from alcohol?  How unusual do you think that is?

    cross posted here because you all might know more college students personally

    I've heard Georgia Tech is very picky about lab sciences for homeschooled applicants

    My son matriculated at GATech.  He didn't take any SAT subject tests, and they didn't ask about his lab sciences.  It could be because he had a year of engineering-track physics at CC.  They didn't ask about his other 4 credits of science.

    Maybe try a variety of campus ministry groups? Or you're saying even in those there's a lot of drinking? Ugh.

    She has been a student at two colleges and has been in several ministry groups, and the guys all drink.  They drink during Bible study.

    Ithere are probably a few guys who drink a beer now and then but don't get drunk.  How does she feel about that?

    Not good enough for her.  She can't stand the smell, doesn't want the substance in the fridge, just really against the whole thing in her family life.

    Is it unreasonable to ask a college student home for the summer, who has use of a family car to commute to a part time job, to let us know his work schedule for the week?  Would it be different if he didn't need the car?

    Same college son accompanied my minor son while he engaged in an illegal activity.  We have no knowledge of college student actually breaking the law on the trip but definitely knew younger son was breaking the law.  He doesn't know we know.   What would you do?

    Thanks as always.

    and that is when the judge STOOD UP! Actually stood up and very angrily said “What are you saying?? That she is supposed to live with her sister rent free while you lived in the big house and now in a $4000 a month condo in the city?? You can get down now from the stand!”

    HUGE grin as I read this.  So happy for you.

     if you're facing a cancer with a five year survival rate that's basically statistically insignificant...

    My friend, a surgeon, just passed 12 years after receiving a cancer diagnosis with a 5% five-year survival (or was it 3-year?) rate.  The last few years were hard but really only the last year was really hard, so he stopped treatment and was gone very quickly. 

    A relative died young of a cancer with a similar survival rate.  She fought hard but was gone within a year. 

    Really hard to know what to do, but everyone hopes to be in the 5%.
