  1. Here is one about Sweden: The Wonderful Adventures of Nils by Selma Lagerlöf. It was written as a geography book but it is a story. It might be a bit young it has been a while since I read it.
  2. :grouphug: Honestly I have no advice I just wanted to say that I have a pretty rotten relationship with my grandparents because of issues like this. My dad and my uncle used to work for the same company and when that company was bought by another company both families moved to the new plant leaving my grandparents where we used to live. Whenever they came to visit they would ALWAYS stay with my uncle never with us. And when they did come to our house they would bring my cousins. It hurt. A lot. So I just wanted to :grouphug:
  3. I did notice that but I still wont go over it again. Most because I am feeling VERY lazy today:lol:
  4. You are welcome. If he wants more details about Sweden or the UK feel free to PM me. I'm just not in the mood to discuss it again. My blood pressure doesn't need it:D
  5. Like others have said, this question has been asked before and many of us were told that we were brainwashed because we liked our systems. This is the last I have to say on the subject.
  6. Because friends don't allow friends to not know about lovely chocolate:D I second this motion. We got MORE snow today. I am in dire need of some vitamin D.
  7. This one. It has small crystals of sea salt in the dark chocolate. I don't know what it is but it makes the chocolate even yummier. I like salt and it seems to cut the bitterness of the dark chocolate in a great way. I always have some in my emergency secret chocolate stash.
  8. I can do that. I make a great white chocolate cheesecake with a gingersnap bottom. I also have freshly baked chocolate muffins in the kitchen. I'll bring them as well. We might be under there for a while.:D
  9. I like the one with sea salt. I don't drink, can I bring apple juice? (my friends always do this->:lol: when I order apple juice when they order cocktails) But yes I'll come with.
  10. I can't answer your first question, personally I would talk to someone in the medical profession. For the second question this is what I use Always Thin unscented pantiliners I have very light periods and these are the first pads that I really like. They are small but don't irritate my skin (like normal pads do). You might also want to check out this section on the website titled For Moms. HTH :grouphug: Oh and I am in no way affiliated with Always. They are just the only brand that have worked for me:001_smile:
  11. He is adorable! I want to kiss those chubby cheeks of his.
  12. I'm going to tell you a not so secret secret. Bricks and mortar schools rarely finish the book. They rarely finish all that should have been done. You know why? Because starting about now there are field trips, and senior days, and information about this that and the other that takes time away from school. Plus (and I am involved with PS) there is rarely a day when a WHOLE class is there anymore. There is always someone missing for an orthodontist appointment or a doctors appointment or or or... Your daughter can at least pick up where she left of without someone taking time to explain for the
  13. :iagree:Definitely a wrap of some kind. Theaters tend to crank up the air conditioning and you are sitting still, it can get quite cold.
  14. I've been doing if for a year and I LOVE it! I get edgy if I can't make it to class or there is no class for a week or two. It has helped me build muscles, tone my body and help with pain and stress. I am much better at letting those little annoyances go. My posture is 100% better. My back pain is much better. I go twice a week with my mum and she has also seen a great deal of improvement in her shoulder which she had to have surgery on due to multiple dislocations. I recommend going to a few classes to begin with so that you can get your postures right.
  15. Laura he should have, if he had top grades, been able to get out of first year classes at least. I went to one of the top Scottish unis and a friend of mine could have gotten out of Geography 1 with her Higher grades. And Economics 1 is a DRAG because it is also taken by non-majors so they have to get everyone up to speed. I had taken Economics in high school and I was bored to tears (didn't get to lectures at all after Christmas, 9am classes and I have never gotten along). I did the bare minimum to pass (Economics wasn't my major but a required course). It is probably to late for him to skip
  16. I've seen one episode of the US series and it was very good. No objectionable stuff as far as I remember but I wasn't looking out for it. And I can't remember any problems on the early Naked Chef stuff either. We love the shows and the food he cooks. Have most of his cookbooks :001_smile: And Jamie and Jools are having another baby. He just announced it yesterday:D
  17. 3. It would be a 5 if the initial outlay for the device wasn't so much. Right now I can't afford one of the devices. I do have Kindle for PC but it doesn't have the note taking facilities so I have to do that on paper. With a real book at least I can write in the book (WHAT?! SWB said we could!:D). I would love a Kindle though because that would save space in my suitcase when I travel (I'm one of those people who takes a selection of 10 books for a long weekend :lol:)
  18. Susan Wise Bauer herself ;) just posted a blog post on a very related topic, I thought it might be of interest: Thirdgraders, Saxon math, and elitism. Well worth a read.
  19. Not a total looser at all:grouphug: I think it is time for a long car ride. Just you and DS. Tell him beforehand that you WILL be talking about it so he doesn't feel ambushed. Car rides are great because you don't have to look at each other while you talk. Maybe have a fun treat at the other end.
