  1. My son told me a couple of days ago that if I bought hamburger, he'd go out and cook them on the grill for me! I was like, "Isn't it a little cold?" (He's tough, you know.......he's a teenager, now) So, I'm looking out the window and It is snowing outside. Guess what he's doing right now??!! Oh! How I LOVE grilled hamburgers with the fixin's!!!
  2. I just don't like the loss of daylight in general. This morning I see some sun, but it has been mostly overcast and rainy for about 3wks here.
  3. The mods must have an alert set for this topic..........one!
  4. We'll definitely wait until you are NOT on-line!!!
  5. ????? Hubby is taking me out to eat before we do the big grocery shopping trip! (kiddos are getting frozen pizza, and I promised to bring the teenagers home a special treat for sitting! Yeah, Mama's night out)
  6. 1 Maybe a couple of people need to conspire together and post back and forth really really fast!!!
  7. Hello everyone! The sun is shining--yeah! (and we don't have any more snow)

  8. It may seem dark at the moment, but don't lose hope. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel, keep moving and you'll get there. God won't abandon you; let God be your light. It may take some time, but in the end, everything will be alright.

  9. I think what they did was just plain wrong. I'm not saying that we should pay for others who refuse to, but I think there are much better solutions than this. There are also further reaching consequences that need to be considered. That family DID have insurance. How will insurance companies pay for such expenses when local gov'ts allow houses to be total losses on purpose? They will charge the rest of us MORE. So, in essence, we will still be paying for those who refuse to.
  10. I find myself in the same situation sometimes, HC with the beat thing. It seems to me that music sometimes affects people differently. My hubby can be at a restaurant or store and never even notice the music, but with me, my brain automatically does. However, my husband doesn't really like music or is not inclined to it all that much, and I am the opposite. Like another person said, though, I have went and asked restaurants to turn it down when it was OBviously too loud, too. I'd like to say, as others have, that I would avoid completely all of those places that play the rock music, but it simply isn't possible where we live, and I DO think it depends on the state in which you reside to some degree. When we lived in Utah, where people were more conservative, it was much easier and fewer places played music that was OBnoxious and definitely not loud, but here in Michigan, we are literally bombarded by it everywhere, and it is often LOUD, in restaurants it is to the point that we don't go to certain places to eat unless we get carry-out, you simply cannot hold a conversation with the person across from you! I detest Mc D the worst here, because they not only have music playing, but they have tv's blaring all over the place as well. How annoying!
  11. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/09/29/city-officials-launch-inquiry-cupcake-denial-gay-student-group/ think about their reasoning, then look at this next article...........the guy tries to apply the same reasoning to a completely different situation.....It is a "public place". You can sure see where this is going..........and fast. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/09/29/florida-parent-protests-prayer-ritual-football-games/?test=latestnews
  12. Lovely. The 1st link to the Bible timeline is real neat to look at, but I know that at least at one time their chart included Mormon references. I e-mailed the company yesterday to inquire about this and see if it is fixed, but they have not replied as of yet. Anyone know more about the last two links?
  13. Do you know much about the "Great Adventures chart"? As in, how accurate it might be? (I found a free, more simple one on-line, but it isn't quite what I was looking for) Also, does anyone have any experience with any of the above charts by chance? It would be a great help before making a purchase!
  14. I have unsuccessfully been able to locate a chronological, Books of the Bible study chart for quite some time. Specifically, what I'm looking for is something that shows the Books of the Bible (particularly the OT) in a visual way in the order (as in the overlaps and such) in which the events of the Bible occurred; not the order in which they were authored. There are many LONG pages of descriptions and such that are written out in paragraph form, but I'm looking for something a little more kid friendly and straight forward......more of a chart type format. Anyone know of where I can find such a thing? I'm hoping for free, but at this point, I'm just hoping to find anything. So, far, the only thing I've come close to is a Catholic chart with all of those "other" books added in, and I'm not sure if it is even accurate. Help??
  15. It dawned on me yesterday how they are going to get away with this type of legislation. In a big city we used to live in, the garbage collection was indeed done by the city gov't. Not a big deal, no regulation except that you separate yard waste from regular refuse, but because of it, IF they chose to regulate matters in the way the article stated, it would be easy for them. What they could say is that "Once your trash goes into the city provided canister and you put it to the road at pick-up time, it is basically being 'sold' and no longer belongs to you, and therefore you have no right to claim 'privacy'." I'm glad I now live in the "sticks"......we can still burn our garbage if we want to.
  16. I realize what their goal is, but what about PRIVACY? I can't believe they are getting away with not only the ability to monitor your trash, recycling habits etc, but they can go through it bit by bit and then fine you as well..........for a service that YOU still have to pay for each month, no less. Then there's that little matter of stimulus money--that's your money, too. We already pay according to how much trash we produce--and it is not cheap as it is! What kind of increase will communities see with this type of regulation??
