  1. The Color of Water: a Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother by James McBride - an autobiography in which the author recounts being raised by a Jewish mother and a Black father in the mid-20th century. He also came from a large family. This was a remarkable account of an extraordinary family.
  2. I see the store brands in RI tend to be white eggs. Most cage free and farm fresh tend to be brown, but I've seen some white ones mixed in and (very light) green. :)
  3. I have a similar problem (many ppl, mostly teenage girls I've been told, have my same first and last name on FB and friends who have searched for me have not been able to find me among the masses of them). I guess this is a case for making sure you have a profile picture of you so that if the potential employer does the now customary online search on your name, s/he finds the right person. :)
  4. :iagree: :iagree: :lol: cough! lol! Okay, I know this thread is old, but I was hunting around for threads about teaching on slavery and stumbled on this one. I will state for the record that I am black and if a teacher gave such questions like these in the school in Georgia, I would definitely be mad and offended. I think the other posters that I quoted above have already done an excellent job explaining why such questions were not appropriate. I will only add that one should try walking in the shoes of those who might be offended by such "slavery-related" questions to try and understand why someone might feel they are inappropriate, even if the teacher is trying to teach across the curriculum.
  5. Hi! Sounds good. I had leftover chicken sausage with green beans and goat cheese over rice. Wow! Kudos to you! Did you get out of the impromptu babysitting job that your hubs "arranged" for you tomorrow night? Took ds10 to our mini-co-op class (Literature circle). Making sure the kids are done w/ their co-op class assignments for tomorrow and making sure my lesson plans are in order for the classes I teach. How about a "talent show and tell"? Since we really can't "show" our talent, let's tell about it. I'm not very talented, but I can wiggle my ears. ;)
  6. :lol: :( I'm just about to join for the first time. I feel like I'm missing out on important "organizational" information.
  7. I chose "I live in a cool state... and would not live in a dorky state" but that's not entirely true. I've lived in three states: cool-dorky-cool in that order. ;) I grew up in an area of my "cool" state that upon mentioning it to my future FIL at the time, struck fear in his heart and caused him to ask hubby to "seriously consider" who he was going to marry! My hubby's response was that once FIL got to know me, FIL would love me like a girl from "an *I* state." (hee, hee!) I had some "say" about our move to the cool state I live in now and there were definitely some places I was not willing to even consider, but it was mostly topography and demographics that made certain places a no-go. OP, I don't know if any of this helps you. You have to decide what you can "live" with and what would absolutely drive you bonkers if you had to live in a place like that.
  8. You have amazingly good humor for such a visit. :D Oh-my-stars! I don't know which is worse -- the cavity filling or the unsolicited baby sitting job?!?!?!:ohmy::angry::eek: I feel pretty motivated. Been helping my 10th grader get through his school work. (He's a bit behind since he attended a youth retreat this past week.) Well, you've *earned* that fabulously eclectic meal, my dear! :w00t: I had leftover beef teriyaki stir fry and rice (and it was yummy).
  9. Maybe they meant *all the churches* in this particular denomination? :huh: It definitely ain't happenin' in the church I go to nor any of the sister churches. :iagree:
  10. How about Livemocha.com http://livemocha.com/pages/about-us/ It's not a curriculum. They offer free lessons and paid lessons, but what I like most about this website is the opportunity to interact with native speakers in a "language exchange" (for ex., you record yourself reading dialogue in the language you choose to study and a native speaker gives you feedback, then you might do something similar for someone learning English). I would say it requires a lot of self-discipline to use this website. I used it over the summer to prepare for teaching Spanish at the co-op, but haven't had the time to do much practice since then. The site could be used as a supplement (using the flashcards for vocabulary practice). :)
  11. http://www.yankeemagazine.com/recipe/for/one-bowl-lemon-poppy-seed-muffins/13724 I made these once so far -- good! I love just about everything "lemon." (I did not include walnuts as I don't like those and I reduced the poppy-seeds to 1 TBSP - that was more than enough.);)
  12. My kids don't like some of what has been chosen for them. Oh. well. :nopity:
  13. Awesome! Thanks for the update! :party:
