11 Good
  1. I remember now it was called Study Dog. Not sure why I remember the Elf more so than the dog.
  2. Anyone remember what the phonics software that had a cute little elf? It seems it was free if one qualified for free or reduced lunch. Then it seems it was put on AOL Kids or KOL. If I remember correctly he would also knock on some door. Anyone remember this? This was software that you had to download, but on AOL you didn't have to download. It would progress to more letter sounds too.
  3. I remember a few years back someone posted a site with details on the history of public schools, and how education was better before compulsory education. I can't find the link, would know it if I saw it. Does anyone have any idea which site it could possibly be?
  4. Could be an allergy, even to ear drops. Think carefully about anything that you could have used.
  5. Thanks everyone for understanding. It appears someone opened the package and didn't reseal or put that it was opened for inspection. I emailed asking for a replacement, hopefully they will send it soon. I got a few items from the book Depository in the past, they were a little slow, but the price was good. I just find it unbelievable that all my packages lately have been inspected where as in the past they weren't.
  6. A bit ago I read a thread about the PO inspecting media mail packages. Since then I have got packages that were opened for inspection, packages from businesses not just individuals. Everything was in the packages, until now and I can't quite figure this one out. We ordered "The Art of Argument" from The Book Depository in the UK. We ordered from them because it was cheaper. Today we get an opened envelope with only an invoice no book. This has never happened before, I can't believe opening a random package someone would hit the jackpot with this book. I can't imagine the envelope opening itself and the book walking away on its own. It will just delay things with the one subject. Money is beyond tight right now, we had a couple of major setbacks with our budget that will take about 2 months to get back on track, so we can't spare the money for a replacement right away. Please keep an eye on all those media mail, and international packages. I can't believe the PO has all the extra time to inspect so many packages to make sure people are being honest with media mail, or that the book we ordered was wanted by an inspector somewhere. When books start to come up missing from packages it sets off alarm bells for me.
  7. My son does not enjoy social studies at all. We did a VA last year to discover that instead of K12's history they used social studies. When he first got the book and looked through it he was disappointed. He wanted to know why it was important to put slang from other areas into a textbook. According to him the textbook was full of gibberish scattered with bits and pieces of real information.

  9. I've not read this thread in its entirety but the flag is part of history, and not about slavery. The Civil War was about so much more than just slavery. When you did really deep you learn more than you knew before.
  10. I read about this a few months back from other sources. These special economic zones do not sound like a good thing at all.
  11. YES! Strong durable fabric, and quality paper could be made, hemp has many industrial uses. I think it was known only as hemp long ago.
  12. Years ago I knew a man who had a business in one location, then in other surrounding areas he had a phone number that was nothing more than a local answering service that would take messages for him. Thus giving the illusion of having business in these other locations. Often in construction type businesses, the business is located in one area yet services other areas out of town. So here is my question, suppose there seemed to be another area where there seemed to be some work available. In order to save money, do you get a phone number in this area that will ring to your current location, placing ads in the yellow pages to get some exposure? Then if it seemed like a viable location get a small cheap office in that location? Just curious, wanted to get some input. We want to move to be closer to other relatives. We would just need to propose a plan to my husbands boss/brother. He seemed open, as he would get to keep his best employee in the process. We are not keeping all our eggs in one basket, or counting chickens before they hatch. We have made up our minds that moving is best for our family for many reasons.
  13. Hemp can also clean radiation from the air and soil, and bring nutrients back to soil.
  14. I think hemp gets a bad wrap, and is not exactly what we have been taught about it. Our FIRST FLAG was made from hemp, the first Levis were made from hemp, superior paper and fabric is made from hemp...... Hemp makes a supstance strong enough to build a car and fuel to run the same car. There are strains of this plant that will not get anyone high, one can only guess why this stuff is not legal, it would create too much competition for certain industries. One way to make sure you don't have competitors is lobby for laws to quash your competitors, seems to be the American way.:tongue_smilie:
