  1. I think this book might be helpful. Instead if using the workbooks, you might be able to jump into each skill where your kid needs work. I use the workbooks sometimes because they are so easy for me to implement, but this book helped me understand the bigger picture. https://www.amazon.com/Complete-Writer-Writing-Ease/dp/193333925X
  2. Oh, no. I disagree. I think there is a place for hard and ugly things to be worked out in movies, just like in books. I'm thinking of a really rough movie, Girlfight. Actress America Ferrera does a fabulous job as a kid who finds a way out of a horrible life situation through boxing. She gave an interview once where she talked about not accepting roles where her only power came from sexuality. I have so much respect for that. Talking about horrible things in movies is not ALL porn. It just isn't.
  3. Thank you for your review. You swim upstream from everything else I've read, so I appreciate your thoughts.
  4. We like pretty strong coffee, and for us the key to good coffee with a cheap drip machine is a metal filter basket in place of the paper filter. I like my coffee to deliver a round kick to the head. After that, the flavor depends on the brand. I bought some Amazon brand that tasted like dirt. However, 8 o'clock from the grocery store is pretty good.
  5. It occurs to me that LU will save a lot of money in contract payout if they can find that Falwell's being removed for fraud, in addition to perviness.
  6. Oh, I hate that. I had to remove a set of cabinets over a fridge because of a similar issue. Could you find a way to just replace that one cabinet? Or make it a shelf?
  7. This has been an ongoing problem in the Netherlands. I wonder why these animals are so terribly susceptible? https://api.nationalgeographic.com/distribution/public/amp/animals/2020/06/covid19-forces-mink-farm-end-netherlands
  8. Follow that kid! Nothing too intense or too long, but give it a whirl! If it doesn't click, let it go for a few months and try again. I started teaching dd at 4 because she started spelling 2-letter words on her own.
  9. That's terrible! Have you tried the bucket of water ramp approach? If this ever happens to us, my cat is FIRED.
  10. I'd be interested in seeing the seeds tested for fungus, etc. Such a weird thing.
  11. We have a lot of them, because dd loves folk tales, but this one is my favorite collection. It's so attractive and beautifully illustrated. I bought it used (not this expensive!). https://www.amazon.com/TALES-FABLES-WORLD-Barbara-Hayes/dp/1869536673
  12. It might help to remember that Paul corrected Peter, probably pretty forcefully given the way it's written down. Was Paul hurting the unity? No. He was defending the church's destiny. Unity doesn't have to mean quiet submission to whoever's in charge when something is wrong. It had better not.
  13. I've been thinking about this. Yes, people are saying that because this person also believes some crazy things, and perhaps doesn't have the professional affiliations she claims, she isn't a good source of information. That could be ad hominem. However, she claims she's right, not on the basis of ideas that can be argued, or studies that can be evaluated. She's saying, "I'm a doctor, I know things, believe my assertions because of my credentials." So, no, I don't think this is an ad hominem fallacy. The thing in question is her credibility, if she isn't producing any other evidence
