  1. My nephew lives in an inner city neighborhood. During recent heatwave, he decided to go outside to sleep on his porch. He awakened to being bitten by raccoon - three times. Many rabies shots later, he also no longer thinks they are cute. I only think they are cute on TV.
  2. Sorry it has taken me so long to respond because I haven't been around much. The hybrid battery is in a constant state of charging. You never have to wait for it to charge. The gas engine charges battery while it is running so when you are driving it just cycles between gas engine and battery. Our gas mileage is great. We own two hybrid vehicles and never plan to go back to a non-hybrid.
  3. I am a Toyota person and have never enjoyed driving Hondas. If she is a Toyota person, I would keep that in mind. Also, I have an older Highlander Hybrid and LOVE it. With a hybrid, nothing has to be plugged in. The gas part of the engine charges the battery. I am not interested in ever straying from Toyota again. ETA: My 2007 needs more cup holders though.
  4. My daughter has a very hard time letting go of some things and is completely opposed to just donating her things to a thrift store. However, if I can come up with a charity or something with more of a specific purpose, she is better about it. For instance, she feels better about donating things to the homeless shelter and currently survivors of a devastating tornado in our area. Then, she feels that she knows more of where her things are going and can feel better about their new purpose. Just a suggestion. I have a MIL and DH very much like this so I feel your pain. It even has me second guessing what to get rid of nowadays.
  5. My favorite topic. Just recently saw Waitress. It is now in my top 10 musicals. I loved it Another favorite is Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. This is probably the one I actually listen to the most often. Others include: Little Shop of Horrors Jesus Christ Superstar American Idiot Chess In the Heights Chicago An American in Paris Bright Star City of Angels Finding Neverland Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder The Lion King Dogfight The Color Purple Something Rotten Also, I haven't actually seen these yet but love the music for Come from Away and Hadestown. While not one of my favorites personally, the tour currently out there of The King and I is one of the most visually stunning things I have seen in a long time. It was a very good show. I am sure I am missing something. My 15 year old's new favorite is Waitress and my 17 year old's favorite is Les Miserables. The tour of that currently going around is absolutely amazing.
  6. The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper and other books by Phaedra Patrick The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan I really enjoyed all of these books. Not so much on the belly laughs but I liked them.
  7. Another Shriner's recommendation. They will pay for all orthopedic care including custom made braces and orthotics. No cost to you ever. Your local Shrine can also help you with transportation, etc. They were amazing when we needed them to treat my daughter's clubfoot.
  8. All is well here. I live in city of Dayton and we had no damage. We were only about 2.5 miles from major damage though. Scary. We heard sirens but our first alert was that all of our iphones alerted us of the warning and we went to the basement, where we followed the news until it was over. It was a first for my daughters and my youngest was very scared. We had several good friends in the immediate path but thankfully no one was injured.
  9. I haven't been on College Confidential at all so didn't connect there. She is really excited about Kent and I am very happy that she has found some place that she loves so much. She loved the town as well. She initially only looked at smaller schools for walkability and small town feel but she got the same feeling from Kent.
  10. DD is going to Kent State University in the fall. She did receive a Trustee Scholarship which covers about 1/2 of her tuition. Accepted: Kent State, Ashland University and Wright State University Why Kent? She loved it there on visit last year. She attended a Discover Theatre Day where she attended classes etc and just fell in love. Not the most financially viable option she had but its where she really wants to be. Major: Theatre Studies (Performance concentration)
  11. Zombie Dogz on Brown Street just added a poutine with tater tots to their menu. I have not had it but I saw it on their new menu.
  12. My cousin's four year old has Dravet syndrome as mentioned above. It is a catastrophic epilepsy but CBD oil has helped tremendously with his seizures although has not eliminated. We have already lost his twin brother.
  13. For my dd: Kent State University (no word on merit aid yet) Ashland University (merit aid offered but don't remember name of scholarship)
  14. My oldest is my first going through this. She applied to two schools, Kent State University and Ashland University,and has been accepted to both through rolling admissions. Both schools are in our state. Now we wait for financial information as that will likely be the deciding factor. She says she would be happy going to either although her heart is really set on Kent State.
  15. My husband is my one and done. There is no one who will love me the way he does (and vice versa) and I can't even imagine trying. Honestly, I don't even want to try. I certainly would never do it as long as my daughters are still at home.
