  1. What a good problem solver! Yes, be proud. I hope you're feeling better.

    Agh. And eek.

    ((Pen)) I hope you get ahold of an electrician soon.
  3. If you want a variety of authors, but also want to give your slower/reluctant readers a break, short stories and novellas by world authors can be a good way to go. Here are a few we've enjoyed, in no particular order. Sholom Aleichem: “The Passover Guest” Jorge Luis Borges: “The Secret Miracle,” “House of Asterion” Franz Kafka: ”The Metamorphosis” (novella) Guy de Maupassant: "The Necklace," "The False Gems," "The Piece of Yarn" Saki (H.H. Munro): "The Open Window," "The Story Teller" Leo Tolstoy: "The Three Hermits," "How Much Land Does a Man Need" Chinua Achebe: "Dead Men's Path" (very different religious perspective)
  4. You handled it well by telling her she was free to use the closer one. Is there an exhaust fan she could turn on to make it more private for her?
  5. Thanks, but no, it isn't. I'm looking for actual scripts of plays, not commentary about the production of the play. Also, I'm not looking for scripts from musical productions, but rather scripts for plays without music. I'd like to find good contemporary plays, rather than "classics." Just wondering if anyone has seen or read anything good published since 2000 or maybe as far back as 1980. Thanks!
  6. Not novels, plays. Our library is allowing us to pick up books, and I want to read some NON-Shakespeare plays. Something written since 2000 would be great, with an added plus if it's clean. Any ideas?
  7. I don't think the doctors treating patients are trying to be political about it. I do think the media hype (one way or the other) makes it more difficult for them to do their jobs, as others pressure them to use or not use what they want.
  8. Edition matters, so be sure to match them appropriately. Check dates. Here's a more recent edition of the black book, if you are using the 2018 red book:
  9. Mother's Day for me means dh and dc work together to make me a nice breakfast, and dh usually buys me a bouquet of flowers. My youngest dc always makes me a card. My adult dc usually aren't home, but they visit, if possible; this year they called and texted. After church and lunch, we visit my MIL for about an hour and take her a bouquet, sometimes also a card. When my older dc were small, we spent the afternoon there with the whole extended family, but as everyone's dc got older, people started dropping in whenever it worked for them. I think dh and siblings all like it better now, because they get to spend more time one-on-one visiting with their mom, instead of having to deal with the whole clan at once. I do think she misses having them all together at once, though.
  10. And this is why we're staying home as much as we can. I'm hoping that the research being done now will yield better treatments by the time a second wave hits.
  11. Our VA hospital is using it, so I don't think there's a conspiracy to keep it for the elite. How about an alternative conspiracy theory in which a different "they" want Trump to be wrong more than they want to share the truth about the drug? The proclamations about it not working never seem to mention if it was tested it in conjunction with azithromycin, like the French doctors used when they brought it to everyone's attention, or with zinc, like Trump uses; supposedly, it helps zinc get into the cells to do something useful. Instead, the focus seems to be only on the possible dangerous side effects, as proven by the people foolish enough to take it without medical supervision after hearing Trump praise it. I wish this weren't an election year, so the various media could at least pretend to be more impartial in relating important info. The best medical info I've seen comes from a source people on this board have proclaimed as quackery.
  12. I know someone who used to get panic attacks who finally decided to deal with the strong emotions by acknowledging them and then choosing to ignore them and move on rationally. She said it was hard at first, but it got easier, and eventually she actually stopped getting panic attacks. Obviously, that's not everyone's experience, but it did work for her.
  13. Just to clarify, an answer key alone doesn't give explanations. If the online practice doesn't include explanation about the answers, try to find one of the official ACT red practice books. Your library probably has at least one, even if it's older.
