  1. I had a midwife-assisted homebirth with my third and fourth. Dd, my fourth unmedicated birth, had shoulder dystocia, and would have died if not for the skill of the midwife. If we had had a hospital birth, there is a very good chance they would have broken her collarbone.
  2. There is a severe housing shortage in Northern New England. People are cashing out their expensive housing in New York and Connecticut (etc) and moving up here to outbid locals, paying cash, so that people who have lived and work(ed) here cannot find a place to live. Lots of investors are also buying homes as AirBNBs, or vacation homes that sit empty a good part of the year. Add to that the skyrocketing cost of building materials, and even if you could find a piece of land a modest home will cost way more to build than what your average worker can earn in this region. A single-mo
  3. The very best pillow for support IMO is latex foam. I used to be able to get them for $35 each at JC Penney or Sears, but they seem to have gone WAY up in price! Here is an "inexpensive" one at Amazon. They do come in soft, medium, and firm. I think medium is just right, but YMMV and it's a lot to pay if you get it wrong. My husband really loves a hotel-quality feather pillow I got him for a Christmas gift after a stay at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando. I copied the pillow manufacturer off the tag in the hotel and found it online. It IS very comfy. Here's a link to that one. FWI
  4. Time spent together, doing community service and life-skills activities like cooking, building, etc. IMO, there is no better way to build character and useful skills than modeling and learn-by-doing with adult mentors who can guide through rough spots (in knowledge and skill AND inter-relational).
  5. I guess Texas has sued other states so frequently that I cannot find the particular law suit I most recently read about. It was 2-3 weeks ago. I'm still looking for it.
  6. https://www.ksat.com/news/local/2021/02/01/texas-secession-bill-formally-filed-in-state-legislature/ I'm looking for a link to the law suit...
  7. Reading through this exchange it strikes me that this is a perfect example of the problem in America with people being intentionally obtuse and refusing to understand facts put in front of them. It also strikes me as ironic that Texas was trying to sue the other 49 states and secede from the union just days before asking for this big handout to bail out their unregulated utility owners.
  8. Anything in particular that you want to know? My sister runs a ketamine clinic for the VA, and I could shoot her specific questions.
  9. We had used it to Freefile for many years. This year we are just over the income limit for their freefile, so we used TaxAct instead. No problem.
  10. Were the solar panels not built with the proper angle to allow the snow to slide off? There are snow-removal methods for solar panels.
  11. Not because they are renewable energy or windmills, but because they weren't properly built for weather.
