  1. No, science does not say that.....not yet. Read your studies again. For every study you can cite, there is another that disagrees. MANY factors, including the pregnant mother's resistance to androgens and estrogens factor in. Identical twins with the same genome can have different orientations. Science can NOT examine a human genome and accurately predict who is gay and who is not. That being said , I fully support the community. My best childhood friend who was later my college roommate was gay and there was no question from the time she was a little girl. It was not a choice she made....it just WAS.
  2. Are you all watching the same show or can you watch 3 different ones?
  3. Oh no! I didn't know about either of these losses. I am so sorry. My prayers are with you and your family.
  4. She is a beautiful puppy! She won the lottery moving into your house!
  5. Against my better judgement, I am going to jump into this conversation. Having taught high school for over 40 years, I have some personal experience. I also broke up my share of fights "at the tree" ! I strongly disagree that corporal punishment should be reinstated in schools. That is a choice for parents to decide within the home, but not in the school. Intimidation is not discipline. Discipline is mutual respect within the classroom. I treated my students with respect and received respect in return. That is not to say that, being teenagers, they didn't make occasional bad decisions. My usual response was , " Do you want to walk that back and rethink that comment?" 99% percent of the time, it led to a deescalation and an apology. I also disagree that automatically sending a kid to the principal to deal with is the proper way to handle things. It is akin to "Wait until your father gets home!" discipline. It wasn't my style. In my whole career, I only sent two kids to the office for the principal to deal with. In the last case, I didn't even complete the write-up. I simply wrote, "Ask him if he deserves a detention." Because I NEVER sent them my problems to deal with the principal said to the kid, "Wow! I am not sure I want to know what you did. Do you deserve a detention?" The kid said, "Yep..and I will apologize tomorrow." He did and we started with a clean slate. Back to the original post...I do NOT agree that both parties should be suspended, but sometimes the back stories are difficult to sort out, especially with the social media involved. I told my students to make the best decisions they could but sometimes there are consequences to be paid. Sometimes they are worth it.

  7. I hope you have a great birthday!
  8. Look at that smile! You have much to be thankful for this year. She is such a blessing!
  9. Turkey, stuffing balls, mashed potatoes with gravy, homemade noodles, candied sweet potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
  10. If the guy cheaped out and didn't pay for coverage available then I cede the discussion to you!
  11. I am willing to bet that this is not a coverage available. The first guy was lucky. Even his lawyer said the insurance company had no obligation to cover the damage. I looked at my homeowner's policy ( which is excellent) and can find no clause under which this would fall. I am not an insurance agent though so I speak with no certainty.
  12. I agree, but what about the other house that had $70,000 worth of damage and insurance did not cover any of it. The insurance company has no obligation to cover it.
