  1. I am in the Bay Area. There are plenty of appointments at Levi Stadium starting on Sunday, April 25. Gilroy High School and the Fairgrounds both have plenty of appointments starting on Wednesday.
  2. I don’t know if it is science fiction enough but Phineas and Ferb is totally child appropriate and might work.
  3. We are on the other side because the child is no longer a teenager, but I don’t know that it is any easier. Meds helped immensely. So did therapy with someone that they chose.
  4. Since my sixteen year old recently failed his geometry test on this very topic a week and a half ago, I vote yes. He told me he was confused before the test so I wasn’t terribly surprised, but...
  5. The little white boards and a good white board eraser! We used them for everything. We still use them for score keeping in board games and Pictionary and lots of other stuff.
  6. Have you looked at aleks math? It says it goes by mastery and it would cover the necessary material. It tends to be algorithmic and some people find it extremely dull. I believe it has a free trial so you could check it out that way and see if it would work. https://www.aleks.com/
  7. Re: the classes at the community college in California transferring to UC or CSU campuses. This is actually really easy to figure out. Look at the course listing it will say if it transfers or not. If is says it transfers, then it does and that is all. You might be best off making an appointment with the college advisor at the community college she is attending. They have the latest information on in state transfers. Both of my older kids took classes at a California community college before going to a four year school, one as a freshman the other as a transfer student. Neith
  8. I have two kids that did physics first. One is getting a civil engineering degree. The other has already gotten a computer science degree. Both had to take calculus based physics in college. Both say that doing algebra based physics first was a good thing. It separated out learning physics and learning the math. They essentially got to stagger learning the math and learning to apply it. I don’t know about the provider you are talking about but for us physics first worked.
  9. I am ready to part with books and games but I don’t know how. Just putting them in the trash seems horribly wasteful but I don’t want to deal with lots of people coming and going to pick them up either. I would love to have a place I could just drop the lot of them off at once. (Anyone in the San Francisco Bay Area want games and books?)
  10. I would get a really cool aquarium with bright colorful fish and have someone come in weekly or so to keep it looking amazing and the fish healthy.
  11. I saw the turkey vulture today. It seems appropriate. I did see a mallard pair a little while later....
  12. LiveOnlineMath does math classes. They meet three days a week. https://www.liveonlinemath.com/
  13. I don’t believe the quarantine is enforceable at this time. The sheriff in Los Angeles has more important things to be doing than monitoring people at the airport. But, and this is a huge but, Los Angeles is not currently in the super strict stay at home order that went out yesterday yet. If and when that happens I don’t know what the situation will look like.
  14. Amazingly, there was better news today. The doctors are going to do an angiogram and place a femoral stent tomorrow at about 10 South Dakota time. It was a conference with five doctors, K (mom’s sister who is a nurse), S (K’s daughter also a nurse), R (mom’s brother) and another specialized care nurse. They all decided that this had a good chance of being in grandma’s best interest. I have to believe them. No news on the second COVID test. If you have positive thoughts for grandma, her doctors and all the other people who are involved tomorrow that would be appreciated. Grandma is Betty
