  1. I haven't read any of the other responses, but wanted to say that I have engaged in that exact sort of behavior more than once in the past few years when visiting childhood neighborhoods with my mother in MA and again with my husband in PA. We drove up and down a few times and pulled over on the side of the road to determine if which house is the right one, rehash old memories, talk about changes to the neighborhood and particular childhood house, etc.
  2. Amazing Grace And if you like historical fiction: The Hornblower movies put out by A&E featuring Ioan Gruffudd.
  3. It was GABA. It was really bad. I did some research which pointed to GABA, and the symptoms stopped when I went off of it.
  4. It's certainly possible. I developed severe shortness of breath from an over the counter supplement.
  5. Later in the metabolism process it is converted to a histamine, which in higher concentrations it will have a stimulant effect. If the drinking took place before bed, it can wake you in the middle of the night, or just make you sleep lighter causing you to feel less rested.
  6. Smoothies are known to be high in sugar. A sugar high releases dopamine in the brain. Sugar is more addictive than cocaine. A runner's high is also a dopamine release. There are also other endorphins involved. FWIW, NSAIDS can help (in a minor way) alleviate the effects of anxiety and other emotional pain.
  7. Never heard of it, but I have a hard time believing that my adult teeth all grew in my skull crooked before erupting, one in the roof of my mouth, due to poor tongue and neck alignment. Does it also explain why two of my permanent teeth were never created by my body at all?
  8. Yes. That's what the biomass plants near us burn to produce electricty.
  9. I'd say he has a dopamine production deficiency. Small amounts of alcohol will increase dopamine, but larger amounts will decrease it (hence, the depressive effect). I've tried GABA w/arginine to improve blood/brain barrier absorption - worked great on my mood problem, but caused severe dyspnea, which I found out later is due to GABA receptors in the epithelial lining of the respiratory system. I've tried theanine, lysine, tyrosine, tryptophan, l-dopa, & d-l phenylalanine - all did nothing. I'm now trying ashwaganda, glutamine, and a high quality B-complex with mthf. I also take a regular multivitamin, and additional potassium citrate. Results are meh. I refuse to go on anti-depressants. I took them about 8 years ago for 2 years, with detrimental life-altering effects lasting an additional 5 years after going off of them.
  10. It's been a long time since I prepared taxes for H&R Block, but unless you are legally divorced I don't think he can legally file "single". He would have to file "married filing separately", and so would you. After the divorce, if the kids are living with you, you should be able to file "head of household" which used to have its own advantages but may not now that drumpf has overhauled the tax code.
  11. Niece went for two weeks in the fall and had a great time.
  12. I really like these. They have a nonskid silicon pad on the shoulders and cross-bar to prevent clothes from falling off, plus the side-hooks, and also a swivel-neck. I've been slowly changing all of our hangers over to them.
  13. Academic probation isn't the end of the world. It might give the student the impetus to work closely with an academic advisor, come up with a remediation plan, and have regular accountability-check-ins. That said, I pulled it back from the brink a couple of times in my undergraduate years by sitting down with the professor and working out a realistic plan to pass the class.
  14. I disagree with the bolded. I think they need to be actively taught how to negotiate, including active listening and conflict resolution, before they are left to their own devices.
