  1. ok, I'll answer this one as my oldest dd is a senior engineering major at a state uni, and gets straight a's. Here's my list: logical abilities - good at puzzles, likes mental challenge, very logical; good at math - this is a no brainer really, there is loads of math and physics in the undergad program. loads and loads. If you kid is not good with upper math, or doesn't like it, don't go down that road. ; persistent - engineering classes are hard. very hard. and a lot of work. ok, peripheral things would be creativity, inventiveness etc... but there are a lot of creative inventive kids that d

  3. Maybe start with having her learn to put one hand on your arm and the other over her mouth? That way, she's not talking, and she has a way to gently let you know she has something to say. So, say when she starts talking really loud, don't say anything, just go physically lead her to where you were, place one of her hands on your arm, and place her other hand over her mouth. Something physical to replace the habit with. I have just found that giving my kids something they can DO as opposed to trying to get them to STOP DOING something works better in the long run. ymmv. Once she has done that,
  4. Hi, I am mktkcb's daughter. Zork is a genius adventure puzzle game series. Nobody knows what a grue looks like because it devours you in completely dark rooms. Started a few of the text interactive games, but got really annoyed with the "tunnel" mapping system. Favorite one is probably Zork Grand Inquisitor. Love the humor and wit of these games, wish they would make more like them. **note from mktkcb: My dd is 21, and an adventure puzzle game fanatic. Most of the Zorks and Mysts are ones my dh had, but she has loved all of them. It would seem that Grues are creatures of some sort that yo

  6. esv MacArthur on kindle. love it, and it doesn't weigh 10 million pounds. can access all the notes etc. with one touch :o).
  7. We've had rats for quite awhile. My dd loves her rats. We had a pair of females first, from the pet store, but they both got tumors and died. After this dd decided she would only get males from a breeder next time. We got 2 baby males, both agouti color, one with dumbo ears and one with regular, which makes it easy to tell them apart. The breeder breeds for temperament as well as color, so she told us they would be big and sweet natured, and they are. DD 21 looooooves her ratties. They are great big fellows, but so sweet and smart. They are like little doggies, and they lick you all over. We i
  8. It sounds similar to a game we played when I was a missionary kid at boarding school, in high school. We had a large campus, and all the adults would fan out with flashlights to hunt down the students who were trying to get some stated thing...sorta like capture the flag, but in the dark being hunted. If you had the flashlight turned on you, you were caught and had to be out. We thought it was great fun, fwiw, sneaking around in the dark hiding behind buildings etc. Appeals to your inner criminal ;o).
  9. awww..so cute!! My dd 21 is totally in love with her ratties. They are agouti littermates, and big fat males LOL. One has dumbo ears, one regular, so she can easily tell them apart. She loves those rats to death, so I totally understand rattie love :o). They *are* very sweet...like little dogs ;o).
  10. shoot.....I say to heck with moderators. Give them both a list of questions, and let them go at it. It would be far more entertaining, and you'd learn a lot more about their true colors. They need far more unscriptedness, imo.
  11. Well, my oldest dd is a jr/sr engineering major, and your dd better learn to at least tolerate writing if she wants to go that direction. They constantly have projects/group projects, and they ALL require detailed write ups. I'm just sayin. Going stem is not a way to avoid writing.
  12. oh..and she always gets comments from people when we walk cuz she's so cute ;o)
  13. I have a good friend with one, and they love her to death. She's got lots of energy, but she's been great with their kids. They probably could have trained her more than they did LOL, but overall she's a great doggy. I walk with this friend & dog 3x a week. She's a sweetie & she loooves me in particular. Gets all hyper when I come, and runs up & sits right by me and leans her head on my leg. Anyway, she's very friendly in general, and has been a good dog for them. They got her from a reputable breeder, btw, and have bred her once.
