  1. Are the teachers themselves at risk for any kind of IRS penalty?
  2. How about the real deal? Our Bojangles sells shaker bottles of their fries seasoning mix.
  3. Years ago, when I was working in the toddler nursery at church, one of the kids brought me the book "The Ugly Duckling", and asked me to read it. I was astonished to read the title character say, "No one likes me. I have no friends. I think I will kill myself."
  4. We live in SC, so I'm rooting for Clemson. I'm afraid that there are many in our state who believe that their loyalty to the SEC takes precedence over loyalty to the state.
  5. And here is an article with an explanation (possibly) of why some are having trouble accessing their results online without an access code: http://www.examiner.com/article/2015-psat-nmsqt-scores-debut-tomorrow
  6. Did y'all get the email from Khan Academy which tells you how to link your student's PSAT results to Khan for a customized SAT study plan?
  7. My oldest son is a strict vegan. He no longer lives with us, but when he came here for Christmas, he went shopping with me to get the proper ingredients. He made Christmas dinner for us, and it was pretty good. I must admit, though, that I don't get the whole idea of using fake meat stuff. My youngest son did a full year of being vegetarian to just prove that he could.
  8. In many places, the jury duty rosters are drawn from other sources, such drivers licenses.
  9. As a teacher at our Co-op, I was able to receive a postponement to serve during the Summer only. The week I was there, I think about 75% of the people in the pool were teachers. On the other hand, when I was in college, I was subpoenaed to testify in a criminal trial. The subpoena had a range of potential dates, some of which would have interfered with final exams. I showed it to the head of the department, who was also one of the professors whose exam I could possibly miss, and asked him what I should do. He told me I'd better hope I didn't have to miss an exam, because it would mean a zero for me. The attorneys were not at all open to working around my exam schedule. Thankfully, it worked out.
  10. Not exactly an educational app, but a game that does a fantastic job of developing logic and critical thinking skills: Zoombinis.
  11. For a variety of puzzle-type games, I really like Logic Games by Andrea Sabbatini. It was either free or very cheap.
  12. By 8:30 this morning, I had already driven about 170 miles as I took my oldest ds and his girlfriend to the airport. I have a terrible sore throat and headache today, both of which started yesterday. I'm just chilling out. If I go out anymore today, it will be to take youngest ds to hang out with some friends. On Monday, I need to get to work doing lesson planning for my co-op classes. But for today, I will veg and play Zoombinis.
  13. While combativeness may be an early indication of dementia, it is often something that develops as the condition progresses. My husband was diagnosed with probable Alzheimer's about 10 years ago, when he was 63yo. I had noticed cognitive decline over the previous several years, but it took a while to get the medical people to see what I was seeing. After all of this time, though, we are blessed that he has not become combative. My mother-in-law, on the other hand, who was diagnosed about the same time, is very much up-and-down when it comes to her demeanor. She can cuss me out like a sailor (very much unlike her pre-dementia self) one minute, and a half hour later be as sweet as can be.
  14. When I was in high school, we got a foster sister. From the very beginning, it was understood by everyone in the extended family that she would be treated just like the rest of us at Christmas and on her birthday. We did have to explain some of the inside jokes and traditions we had, but she quickly adapted to them.
