Re: Worried about my daughter

when we first moved to Missouri we had 20 acres of timber pasture one year several men from St. Louis came and said do you mind if we hunt in your timber i said no we only had one cow and she was in the barn so they went on but before they left they brought me two cleaned rabbits oven ready the next year they came back but they brought a box of candy bars for the girls again they left me a rabbit and a squirell they did this every year as long as we were there never went down without asking never left without bringing at least two cleaned rabbits there were a few deer down there but i don't think they ever shot one i remember my dad talking about when he was in the army in northern michigan he said there was a pool there and the men would wait till the deer came and knelt down to drink and then shoot them he said i could never see any sport in that he never hunted and he never fished and once i had the shears and was cutting the hedge i found a big tomato worm about three inches long i was going to cut it in two but he said oh why do you want to do that it's not hurting anything and that was my dad as far as he was concerned everything had a right to die a natural death i don't think he would have killed a chicken so it's good we didn't live on a farm

a question for the teachers

what is the new math and how can it be different i thought numbers were always the same and the way we were taught to manipulate them were too it was never my best subject but i did learn to add subtract multiply and divide even fractions i found an old book of my husbands nephew once and there was a formula for figuring a square root without a calculator i could do it by following the formula but sure couldn't do it again and i know figuring astrology is different because you are adding and subtracting minutes and hours so what have they done with it and how have they changed it?

Math again i have said i never had any higher than the eight grade there is i think Algebra Geometry and Triginometry which just as well be greek but the men who plan to send a rocket to the moon or Mars they can't send it to where it is but to where it will be what kind of math do they use to figure that

Re: U.S.Requirements for Teachers in the New Millenium

i just got back from our sunday afternoon church service the sermon was on saying thank you and the lesson was the ten lepers jesus healed and only one returned to say thank you how often do the students or parents say thank you to the techers i know i was especially to our band director and the teacher who taught me to play the clairinet though the best way i could say thank you to him was to keep up my two hours of practice a day and i was thankful to the director for seeing i was included in the all city band that played for the special basketball games i got to go to the state contests but not like the year before us to the regional contests i was in high school from 1941 to 1944 no out of state travel but i still have the medels we won in the state contest

Re: U.S.Requirements for Teachers in the New Millenium

one thing i have wondered about butcant get any answers have heard there is a new math how can math be different i thought numbers were an absolute and didn't change i never had any math beyond the eight grade and still dont know my percents our seventh grade teacher was as bad at teaching math as i was at learning it but after i got got in jr high didn't have that much trouble i know how to find the area of things the circumference of a circle though i had a hard time remembering what pi was though did manage to
memorize the tables are they new or can i still depend on what i learned no calculators though i did struggle with the nine times till finally
passed out not kidding my mother came and sat down beside me the next thing her apron started to get big black spots on it then i was stretched out on the floor after that she said you quit for now math the only thing that ever took me down now they have changed it how? one of you teachers please tell me not that i want to start over
i just do it the way i learned and hope it's right though i don't have to balance books or keep a check book here always wanted to learn languages finally got a first year Latin and have worked on it the vocabulary isn't hard but the grammar will make you pull your hair out at least it hasn't changed got a chemistry book once and tried to study it but there again the math understood it till i got up no the higher valences should have learned spelling better but here i have a spell check

of Perdue in Indianapolis anyway he got me a sony $100 for the browser and $50 for the keyboard at first i was on web t.v. and that was $19 95 a month then they stopped having a local number so my son n law put me on socket and you got two months of web free but it didn't change my nic or addy well i'll leave the high tech stuff up to him hope someday maybe i can have a real puter my daughter says i'm too impatient she says even with a real one you have to wait for it to load and that can take awhile

Re: Bargain on PM MSN Plus System

thought for pics you had to have a scanner and if i did don't know where icould put it on the bed? have a table mate from QRS shopping center and it just has room for my keyboard and a bunch of books i keep out when i want to clear my bed i put them back on the table but yesterday one of the
girls put most of them back on the shelf of my bookcase i can't stand up and git myself so like a lot of other things i have to depend on someone else med nurse was just in here said it wasn't raining just very cold said she has a dr.s appointment in Columbia about 30 miles said her
husband took the day off to go with her but he decided to go hunting first she said if it rains she won't even go yesterday in the hospital
new they finally got Cortneys baby picture up nov 15th at 843p.m. 7 pound 7.6 ounces and 20 inches hope she gets home soon here she has a
six weeks maternity leave but at home she has a two year old daughter shehad planned to spend all day last sat with i know when my youngest was
born my oldest was a few daYS AWAY from two weeks from her secondbirthday Vickie was born July 3rd she was 2 July 21st she talked to me on
the phone and said hows Bicky sister when you going to bring her home then after vickie died just before her 15th birthday Mary said she felt
really guilty i said why? she said i was older i was supposed to take care of her and that was after she was grown well i felt guilty too i wasn't even supposed to get pregnant before Mary was two they warned me about that because Mary had been a c section then they said couldn't have
anymore after vickie i hated that too i always wanted more children now they do c sections different and you can have more but they were born in 50 and 52 medicine changes and will keep changing and improving i hope i have even heard now that there have been times they did opperate on someone that had the same kind of brain tumor that killed vickie back then 1967they wouldn't even touch it they gave her one series of radiation but said that would only give her 6 months to a year they said any more radiation would destroy too much brain tissue as it was the last picture i have of her she is very sober looking at the proofs when i chose it the pictures she smiled in only one side of her face smiled the
other side was paralised but i'm glad she died with faith and unafraid

Re: Fun Fact - What do you do?

can't touch while i'm sitting or after i stand up either hang onto the rail till whoever is helping me has my pad back on and my underware up
then i reach for my chair one day a new girl was helping me she forgot to lock it and i forgot to remind her wound up on the floor on my
bad upper arm and shoulder they pulled me out picked me up and put me back in the chair my lower arm and wrist were sure sore for about a week but they took exrays and thankfully nothing was broken but after that i'm sure they have the chair locked i know some of the new girls hate to have me remind them but i do anyway after everything is done they flush it if it is flushing we had a terrible time about a week ago the plumbers were here for about the whole week they got several protection pads some underware out too it that some of the people who are less aware tried to flush and they were back yesterday they got a pair of slacks i guess whoever tried to flush them thought they were putting them in one of the
laundry barrels anyway that one week was one of the few times i was glad i couldn't smell anything now you will notice that thanks to Mary Lynns
love and patience i finally have things back as i like them



Mon, Nov 19, 2001
Re: Fun Fact - What do you do?

i did too back in the good old days before i had to depend on everyone else at least i can still think though i do some foolish things like erasing what i had but at least i have it back and maybe someday in gods good time i won't be helpless but that will be his decision and i'm 75 so if he decides it will be for another 25 or 30 years i know he is still with me and one day i will be with him

Re: Stuff It?

when my mother was alive and we had diner at home she stuffed the turkey and made a casserole of dressing to bake along side other regulars were mashed potatoes candied sweets noodles cooked with the giblets for gravy
and apple bnut salad i think it's official name is Caesar and oh yes cranberry sauce and not the kind out of the canand pie usually apple
though i remember one time i had mince though i don't think that was at home and she always had drumstick for each girl it was a feast i won't
have again for awhile they did have a thanksgiving dinner here a couple of weeks ago turkey right off the bird mashed potatoes no sweets no noodles no apple nut salad and only about a teaspoon of cranberry sauce we had
our choice of pie lemon pumpkin or pecan the real thing every once in a while here they will have caramel oatmeal pie it's not quite the mock
pecan but it is good the menus and the recipes here are very nutritional according to the state dietary people they take good care of us as a
rule you can have substitutes they have a lot of green beans an broccoli hardly ever squash which i love and right they said no i could not have
breakfast three times a day i love my over easy eggs and my oatmeal one time the director asked me if i thought i might have been a horse in a
previous lifetime horses do love their oats

Re: Compulsive Cleaning

when my mother was expecting company she would clean the rug that was in front of the dresser then she would turn it over till they came one big event every month her sunday school class met and when it was our turn to have them it was like a regular spring cleaning i couldn't see it
needed much she was a compulsive 24 hour a day cleaner i asked her once why she was like that she said once when she was 8 year old she was reading the paper and saw where they put a woman in jail for keeping an untidy house that was in 1908 so i will leave it up to you to figure
out what an untidy house was i guess back then they coudn't use word like brothel in a public paper

Re: Compulsive Cleaning

as you know this lazy grannie don't clean but at least once a month housekeeping does what they call deep cleaning the girl comes in washes and dusts everything the guy sweeps and mops then another comes in and buffs they really do a nice job and sometimes one of the nurses will come in and straighten up my bookcases and sometimes will go through my closet and straighten things up there

a pair of brown suade pumps next a brown crepe dress and on the bottom a mink coat i will never forget how excited she was she had that coat for
years though she told me later after i was grown that she would just as soon wear a good warm cloth coat i remember at that same time my
mothers cousin had a raccoon coat they were the height of fashion at that time

Re: Prayers for Rob's family, Please!

i used to have very severe asthma to the point by the time i got to the drs. office my hair in back was soaking wet he knew i was an l.p.n. and able to give shots he gave me a bottle of adrenaline and said get the little insulin syringes if you have an attack give yourself a shot of a quarter cc of this it really worked too but when i got a little older
he said you cant have it anymore i had two inhalers that worked well if i was out driving and started to have an attack i would go right home i
had gone home to get them sat down on my bed i kept them on my bedside table i used them and could breath then i got up to walk out to the
kitchen where my husband was and fell on my face i couldn't even call him my mouth felt all funny but when he came in and found me i was able to tell him i'm sure 'i've had a stroke i couldn't get a hold of the bed to pull myself up i didn't realize that half of me didn't work he called 911 and i remember them putting me in the ambulance and that's the last i remember for the next month i hallucinated i would think my mother was in bed with me if the curtains were drawn i would be sure she was in the room on the other side of the curtain and couldn't understand why she didn't answer me but that passed though for long time i was afraid i would have another bout of asthma but i didn't till one night s few years ago here it has been either a blessing or a punishment that i have stayed alive this long i can't help myself or anyone else anymore but at least i can pray for them

was my wedding reception or can you consider a wedding dress formal i know if a man is in the service their uniform is considered formal did you ever see the movie or videoThe sound of Music and see the medals the captain wore at the wedding but of course most men and boys consider a tuxedo formal a young man came in here the other day wearing army fatigues his mother was the med nurse that day she said he had been hunting thought hunters were supposed to wear bright orange
