  1. Thanks, I’m all updated now 🙂
  2. Can I change my signature with my phone or only on a computer? Pretty sure mine needs an update! can’t figure out how to do it, on my phone thanks
  3. Are you allowed to wear scrubs to work? I’ve heard other special educators talking about being able to wear them. I was just at a place that sold them and was impressed by the sizes and styles out how- they had stretch fabric and ones that looked nicer like dress pants. And plus sizes.
  4. The fort itself is awesome. there are small historical re enactments in the area in Sept- Fort William Henry in Lake George & one at Fort Edward (no actual fort- just a field) Yeah, Burlington is way better 🙂
  5. Um, there is nothing else nearby. At all. Except the Adirondack Mountains. Ticonderoga is not really much of a town- it’s a very rural area and then there’s a Walmart plaza. check when the fort closes for the year to be sure they’re still open. Plattsburgh is an hour North with a SUNY school, a mall, but not much else. An hour south is the Lake George area- touristy. There’s a 6 Flags there open on weekends only in the fall. And one of those indoor water park places. (I live nearby) and nope- not where pencils are made. But there’s a paper mill.
  6. I’m not Margaret but my son looked at Norwich too- not cadets. They offered great financial aid & he liked their cyber & comp sci programs. He attended their Gen Cyber camp the summer between 11-12 I believe. That was good. Ultimately he decided on a state school in our state, but Norwich was high on his list.
  7. I know some districts do accept that, but many require a detailed plan for your year and then quarterlies that report what was actually covered in each subject. regardless, the regulations are not difficult to follow. There is year end testing required at certain years it it is not difficult, even for kids below grade level.
  8. Thanks all! The bike itself is very good quality- it was just originally purchased for a different and lighter man. But it was pricey and well made. That’s why I’m hoping we can just replace the wheels.
  9. Looking for recommendations for bike wheels for a 300lb + rider. or a new bike with appropriate wheels. Local bike shop has no experience with this but are looking into it. Really would prefer to just replace wheels, for cost reasons. current wheels on the good quality bike are not sturdy enough and back wheel keeps getting bent. Bike is being ridden daily about a 8 mile trip for transportation in town. Or any other advice for a heavy rider. thanks.
  10. Well yeah, it’s an industrial old city, so not necessarily pretty. “the projects” are located right in downtown and there can be a fair amount of crime, probably no more than in any other inner city area, I’d guess. We lived both on and off campus and all our guy friends (Sage just went co Ed) were up the hill at RPI. Never had any issues with crime on or off campus. Oh wait that’s not true, my friends car was stolen one night. A lot of my friends stayed in Troy raising families there so it’s not that bad! I’m sure they address safety during visits/ open houses/ etc so I’d ask about what things are like these days.
  11. I love Troy 🙂 went to Russell Sage, bought our first house there, had my first kids there... I know people complain about it, but it holds a special place in my heart! And it’s definitely much nicer now than it was then- revitalization. I mean I still would not walk around downtown at night by myself- but the college kids hang out down there where the bars are on the weekend nights.
  12. Lunch on the deck over the river at Brown’s Brewing Company in Troy, if you’re visiting RPI or Russell Sage 🙂
  13. My ears are terribly clogged right now for day 4. Started on one just side but getting worse. Other than that I feel fine- allergies were bad a few weeks ago but not now. No cold symptoms. taking Claritin, Flonase, fake Sudafed (but just went out and got the real thing from behind the counter), and doing Neti pot. Doesn’t feel like a sinus infection does usually. At least not yet. This feeling is really weird and annoying and my kids are driving me crazy- I can barely hear them and it’s bugging them, lol. Suggestions? yes I’m putting off dr visit for now because it’s going to cost me $160
  14. Ds is at a small state tech school - when we visited the first time the nerdy/ gaming culture jumped out as perfect for him 🙂 its been a good fit. There r official clubs on campus but the dorm lounge is the unofficial gamer hang out.
