  1. Wow I’m sorry you had to go through all of that.
  2. Super big puffy heart for the Prince episode. I'd also recommend the Juneteenth episode. It's a great show with a lot of social commentary. You could pick and choose episodes. I definitely would not recommend Grown-ish until later.
  3. Yeah my power company installed a smart meter. My bills break down power by type (using an algorithm) as well as compared to my neighbors. Cooling is at the top of my list, next is Always On (Always On includes "plugged-in" devices such as personal computers, monitors, printers, stereos, and televisions that consume energy even when they're turned off), then Lighting, Laundry, Refrigeration, Entertainment (Entertainment is comprised of two main appliance types: consumer electronics (TV, DVR, game console, stereo) and home computing (desktop, monitor, printer, modem)), Cooking, and finally Othe
  4. I'm only just finishing Chapter 2. I got the audiobook and struggled through chapter 1, but chapter 2 compares child-centered classrooms to knowledge-based classrooms. If you liked The Knowledge Gap by Natalie Wexler, then this would be your next book. I've bookmarked a couple of passages in chapter 2 already. How to Educate a Citizen: The Power of Shared Knowledge to Unify a Nation by E. D. Hirsch Jr.
  5. Just contacted a local carpenter to make me a target. It can go against my back brick wall which is much taller than the side wall I was thinking of originally. I want it go the full length because brick walls are hard on knives. I asked him to make it pretty like maybe stain the wood since it needs some weather protection anyway. It needs to survive the desert sun more than a year. We’ll see what he comes up with. I sent these pictures along. I’ll post a picture when it’s all done. It’ll be a nice birthday surprise.
  6. I bought BlueAir purifiers. I stick with the + version. They covered a little more sq footage than the others. They can get about as loud as a regular fan when on high but are practically unnoticeable when on low. So for an office, I’d get a bigger size so I can keep it on low but still have it replace the air a little quicker. That’s my completely unscientific opinion though. It’s consumer reports rated. I can’t get to the list online ATM but it was top spot I believe. With the fires, they may be difficult to find. I bought mine from amazon because they had 2 packs for $50 less. I t
  7. Hello neighbor. 🙂 I might complain a lot about Vegas, but I also acknowledge it's been very good to us. It's an interesting city where most everyone you meet is from somewhere else. We've been here for 17 years and my grandparents lived here so I visited a lot growing up. I trust this city will get through these hard times as we have a history of boom or bust. Vegas is in a constant state of renewal. It is a place where second chances are a part of the culture. I hope it's as good to you as it has been to us. 🙏❤️
  8. Sort of? I started making playlists for school and they got shared a couple of times. I don't have anything original though.
  9. My school district just cut back the hours required to be online. It is the same district that had those schedules I posted up thread. K-2 is 9:1130 now instead of until 1:30. Grades 2-5 also cut back with core classes being scheduled as a block at the beginning of the day. It took a couple of week but they have some relieved parents.
  10. I think I’m listening to it right now. The Joy of Vax?
  11. Does anyone have a link to a good article or video that goes in depth into the different vaccines? How each one is different? Thanks! 🙂
  12. I've always struggled with where we live, but the city has been good to us even through this. We were looking at homes closer to dh's work. They are still too expensive so we're fixing up our house and enjoying what we have.
  13. https://www.consumerreports.org/cro/microwave-ovens/buying-guide/index.htm Just found this. https://www.consumerreports.org/microwave-ovens/best-microwaves-of-the-year/ Best Countertop Microwaves AmazonBasics Works with Alexa S9N29R GE Profile JES2251SJ LG NeoChef LMC1275SB Panasonic Genius Prestige NN-SD681S Panasonic NN-SE785S
  14. Online version. I still have a subscription from when I bought my fridge.
  15. Oh 🤦🏻‍♀️ I thought they were fully built in. On Consumer Reports Panasonic took 7/10 Large Countertops. Panasonic Ann-SE785S took top place.
