my mom fell again and broke ribs, shoulder, stuff in her face... of course they didn't go to the ER immediately but waited until after breakfast the next day to go to an urgent care... just like my grandmother - horrible osteoporosis
but my mom was conscious of it and did weight bearing exercise (casually) and ate calcium and had dexa scans and shots and whatever... but she's still breaking bones all over the place - Christina Pikas

Cute! - Anne Bouey
Girls dresses are so short these days. We went to several stores and this length is all they seem to carry...it's cute but I would like it more if it was a few inches longer. - furrworld
I know a lot of young girls who wear shorts under their dresses of this length. The dance/exercise spandex type seem to be a popular choice. - Katy S
Yes spandex shorts are a definate...I'm not at all about her having her lunch hanging out all over.... - furrworld
Audrey wears leggings under dresses quite a bit. They have inexpensive ones at Old Navy. Some are plain and others have cute lace around the ankle. - Rochelle
She will wear stockings/pantyhose for church and then she can take them off for the party afterwards since its at our house. I have a feeling she will want to change anyway when we get home to something more comfortable. - furrworld

Ugh, I just realized his fever seemed kind of unexplained and came about a week or so after he got a tick bite. Better go to doc. We saved the tick, but I just found out I was supposed to keep it alive. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
oh man. hope it's not related. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat

Hopefully a total coincidence. There are always regular viruses going around. Think I will not panic and wait until his annual physical next week to ask about it. He's still having stomach pains, but he just had the one bout of fever - no rash at the site of the bite, so that's a good sign. - Laura Norvig

Just got quote back for redoing front yard (my body can't do concrete/paver/extreme digging anymore). It is quite a rude introduction into the not-do-it-yourself world.
:( Maybe the FIL will be healthy enough again soon to help? - Anne Bouey
Yep. I had some estimates on redoing my front yard when I first moved into my house. Two of the four estimates were more than my down payment. I've had to do what I can, bribe friends, shop around, do littler projects and drink more so the cost doesn't hurt as much. - Kristin from iPhone
Yeah that might be the solution Kristin I'm way ahead on the drinking more. We'll see two more quotes to go. Fingers crossed at least one of them is a hell of a lot lower to give me some wiggle room. Or worst case we continue life as we know it and i keep the lawnmower. - Steve C
The paver patio we just had put in cost more than if I'd bought materials to landscape the entire backyard and did it myself. Needless to say, it'll be a while before there's yard to go with the patio. But I guess at least there's a place to barbecue now? We can just invite guests to look at our dirt! (clearly we all went into the wrong business - landscaping is where it's at!) - Hookuh Tinypants

Student claims college instructor spent months teaching class the 'wrong' course | khou.com Houston - http://www.khou.com/news...
Student claims college instructor spent months teaching class the 'wrong' course | khou.com Houston
"For college students, a straight-A average is a crucial building block on the road to success, but imagine having that average jeopardized because of a teacher’s mistake. That’s what Lauren Firmin claims happened in her Fall 2013 semester at Lonestar College- University Park in northwest Harris County. The class she had enrolled in and thought she was taking was an ‘Intro to Chemistry’ course, a study of the basics of the science. Yet this student with a 4.0 grade average found herself unexpectedly struggling with the material. “I was getting 40’s on every test,” said Firmin. “I studied as hard as I could, did everything in my power to try.” Then, shortly before the class’ final exam, Firmin claims teacher Thao Shirley Nguyen admitted something. “She told her mistake in class to all of the students,” Firmin told the KHOU 11 News I-Team. And the mistake: “She was teaching general chemistry, another course, all semester.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Uh-oh. - Anne Bouey
And in all that time not one student asked for clarification, asked a tutor, went to the dept head, checked the syllabus, researched the textbook..... - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Sounds about right for people taught to do as their told without any critical thinking skills. - Anika
And that's what happens when we teach to the standardized tests, folks. Rote memory is all we care about. Can't be having generations of youths with critical thinking or analytical skills, now can we? - Hookuh Tinypants
I mean, honestly, I sympathize and all. The teacher made a huge mistake. But there were how many kids in that class? And not one single student took it upon themselves to question the situation? I mean, there's a huge difference between Intro to Chem and General Chem. HUGE. The fact that the class assumed that they already knew things should have been the big tip-off. Also, didn't... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
(Also? The instant that student realized she couldn't get above a 40 on the tests, why didn't she either drop with a W or switch to credit-no credit grading? I notice that the school does indeed offer that option. What, did someone else have to think of that for her too?) - Hookuh Tinypants
My second semester of Chem was tough, but after every test we went over it briefly. One test was particularly hard and no one did well, so the teacher went question-by-question to see where the problems were. Having 4 questions no one could answer was pretty obvious. I'm blown away that the teacher didn't notice how poorly everyone was doing and that none of the students got together to try and figure out their issues. - Heather, 30k Camper
That entire class, professor included, is a study in Darwinism for sure. - Hookuh Tinypants
We had a lecturer in my 1st year at uni that was truly dreadful, so much so that we all banded together and lodged a complaint, a meeting with the disgruntled students was arranged, which I also attended and we made our concerns clear. He was eventually replaced, but what's tragic about our story is that the end result was exactly what he wanted, he didn't want to teach and so sabotaged... more... - Halil
My son is a math major at UTSA, and he has a similar problem this semester. He's taking two different statistics classes (upon the recommendation of his advisor) that are teaching identical content. Basically, the same stuff in both courses, with different textbooks, for two course credits. - Glen Campbell
Also, I rolled my eyes a little at this: "For college students, a straight-A average is a crucial building block on the road to success". It really depends on your field. Yes, grades are important, but for some grad programs, work experience is a bigger factor than whether you got A's in all your classes. - Jessie
M9M, Hookuh: That was my immediate reaction before getting to your comments. "Really? You're getting straight A's in everything, suddenly you're flunking exams...and you don't bother to find out why?" - Walt Crawford
Also, re that straight-A claim: Damn, I'm glad I've been away from college for 45+ years. Straight A's at Berkeley in the 60s usually meant you were a superbeing or a jock. - Walt Crawford
what I thought when I saw this was how the hell did the professor not question the fact that so many students were failing the class? also i get that she's new, but...how did no one explain to her the difference between intro and gen chem? and what everyone else has already said about the students...i mean geeze, i would have been asking questions on why i was flunking and not just... more... - Sir Shuping is just sir

Is it real or is it Hollywood? - SFGate
"We all know that movies are inaccurate - to time, to science, to logic, to history. We also know that sometimes it matters, and sometimes it doesn't, but we disagree there. The line between what matters and what doesn't is not only different for everybody, but it also varies within every person. For example, if you're an expert on something, small errors will leap out at you that you might otherwise not notice, or ignore. In October, the astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson made some Twitter comments about the movie "Gravity" that were repeated everywhere. Some of what Tyson called "Mysteries of Gravity" were the kind of things that only an astrophysicist would care about: "Nearly all satellites orbit Earth west to east, yet all satellite debris portrayed east to west." Other mysteries were just funny: "Why (Sandra) Bullock's hair, in otherwise convincing zero G(ravity) scenes, did not float freely on her head." Obviously, that mystery isn't a real mystery to anyone, including Tyson. A... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"Sometimes a little knowledge can get in the way of an experience. As someone who grew up in New York, I sometimes have to remind myself that not everyone in an audience is driven up the wall by an inaccurate New York accent. On the other hand, sometimes it does matter. If it's one character sounding strange, fine. But if you're making a movie about an entire subculture - as in... more... - Anne Bouey
"Alfred Hitchcock had a pet name for critics. He used to call them "the Plausibles," because they often criticized his films for being "implausible." You still see that word pop up in criticism today. Its synonym, "believable," isn't used nearly as often, because it sounds too naive, but the sentiment remains naive, no matter what the word. Movies are not about the plausible. We get... more... - Anne Bouey
"And then there are anachronisms, such as the kilts in "Braveheart." Scotsmen didn't wear kilts until hundreds of years later. Who knew? Or the Granny Smith apples and the sweet bananas in "Pirates of the Caribbean": They didn't exist in the 18th century. In "Gladiator," archers are ordered to "fire" on the enemy, but apparently no one said "fire" until the invention of firearms. (What... more... - Anne Bouey
"Historical movies are known for editing out or changing whatever is inconvenient. At least today, most movies make a vague stab in the direction of accuracy, but in the studio days, they didn't seem to care at all. See a biopic from the 1930s or 1940s, and chances are all of it is fake, conforming to whatever was the convention of the time. For example, "A Song to Remember" (1945),... more... - Anne Bouey
"Movies need not be slaves to truth or to accuracy - at least not until they make claims to truth or accuracy. Fiction is great, not in spite of itself, but because it's fictional, because it's untethered. The only caution I'd add is that sometimes accuracy can imply an opportunity worth considering: What would have happened had Bullock given Clooney a little tug? What might have happened if the butler were allowed to really like Nancy Reagan? We'll never know." - Anne Bouey

Mongolian girls becoming eagle hunters to help keep ancient tradition alive | GrindTV.com
"A photographer seeking to document the next generation of Kazakh eagle hunters in Mongolia discovered a 13-year-old girl who has taken to the male-dominated tradition. Photographer Asher Svidensky made a four-month trek through western Mongolia, mostly on horseback, and found Han Gohadok and his daughter, Ashol Pan, who had expressed a desire to take up the full-time profession that is centuries old. Good thing, too, since the ancient pastime is said to be a dying part of Mongolian culture, as young men are leaving their families and the hunting duties behind. As a result, more girls are becoming eagle hunters to replace their brothers, according to the Mail Online. Gohadok told the Mail Online that his eldest son was to become the eagle hunter of the family but was drafted into the army. That’s when Ashol Pan stepped forward. Eagle hunter Ashol Pan of Mongolia holds her golden eagle, giving perspective on the size of the bird. Photo by Asher Svidensky/Caters News Agency, used by... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet

"A fox in the hen house is usually a recipe for disaster. But having crept into a coop while its eight residents were pecking about outside, this cunning customer just curled up on a nest of their eggs for a nap. Maybe he was tired and it was the closest thing he could find to a feather bed, or perhaps he was slyly dreaming of a chicken omelette for tea." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Bank Accidentally Deposits $31k in Teen's Account, Hero Teen Spends It
"Earlier this month, a bank teller accidentally deposited $31,000 into a teenager's bank account. The teen did the sensible thing and immediately started buying shit, spending more than $25,000 in just ten days. On March 7, a customer at a Athens, Ga. bank attempted to deposit $31,000 into his account at First Citizens Bank. But, as it turns out, there was more than one customer at the bank with the man's name, and the teller accidentally deposited the money into the wrong person's account. The lucky recipient, an 18-year-old kid, apparently checked his account, saw the huge balance, and decided to go on a spending spree. Within ten days, he withdrew $20,000 in cash and spent another $5,000 with his debit card." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Georgia! - Jessie
That happened to a classmate of mine in HS. She spent it, too. (In California.) - Spidra Webster
SMH - Anne Bouey
I think if it were a minor the bank might be more lenient, but since the guy's 18, he spent money that he clearly knew wasn't his, and he doesn't seem to have any intention of returning it, I can see why they'd want to prosecute. - Jessie
I am just glad it wasn't my kid :) - Eric Logan from FFHound!
That happened with my dad, and he called the bank back as soon as he noticed - but that's as a 50+ something adult. Slight advantage in the impulse control department (one hopes.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Washington Mutual once deposited an extra $10K to my account. I told them. They froze my account for a month. - Anika
They don't know that the bank wants that money? - Eric - Watch Me Now
Happened last year to my coworker's husband, due to the same thing. Though I don't think it was that much. They contacted the bank and had it sorted out. - Not Me
It seriously sucks if they'd lock down your account for a month because of their gaffe. I think with my dad's it took about 4 days, but he found it doing the checkbook on the weekend, so there was some added time to sort it out. That was a local credit union, though. - Jennifer Dittrich
Oh geez. That's awful on WaMu's part if they lock your account because of their mistake. - Jessie
It was eons ago (1995). It sucked because they said it took time to sort everything out. The only other time my back account had been frozen for a month was due to weird charges from fraud. - Anika

I'll let you know as soon as I remember to charge my Kindle. LOL I borrowed the book from the online interface and then picked up the Kindle and went "Well shit." :) In fact, let me plug it in right now while I'm remembering....(I suck) - Hookuh Tinypants
I need to snag it tomorrow. Remind me! - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android
All set! Will read a little before bed tonight. I will likely be caught up by Wednesday evening, since I will be traveling by air. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
Is it not available for checkout now? All I see is $3.99 to buy (which is fine, but I want to know before I click). - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android
It should be free for Prime, Laura. Are you ordering on your Kindle? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I looked through the Kindle itself as well as the mobile site. I turned the last one back in, so I should be able to get a new one this month. - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android
Weird. Does it give you the free Prime checkout option on any other titles? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ah, it was user error. I forgot it wouldn't show the free option until I clicked all the way through, so I was confused by the $3.99. Got it now! - LB: Ratchet Bear from Android
Any thoughts from anyone? - Anne Bouey
I feel terrible, but I'm super behind - I'm hoping to catch up in the next couple of days. - Jennifer Dittrich
Same Jennifer, I haven't started. Been even more disorganised than usual these last couple of wees (and that's saying something...). I'm sure once I start I'll be hooked though. - Melly
I finally finished! I was very disappointed by the ending - not sure what I expected, but not that? The finale also seemed kind of .... rushed. But overall, I liked it a lot! - Melly

sigh. Today is going to be a roller coaster. Logan's birthday party - UP! Grandma in the hospital in NJ - WAY down. Cousins had a baby girl - UP! Grandma in the hospital in NJ - down. I'm all over the place with my emotions today and it's not even 9am. :-/
*hugs* Oh wow, I'm sorry to hear about your grandma. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
