    Gobekli Tepe

    Steinhauer's post on the baltic sea anomaly made me think if this story that I've been reading about for a while. I don't know why it fascinates me so much, but it does: We used to think agriculture gave rise to cities and later to writing, art, and religion. Now the world’s oldest temple...

    Sign Language and the Importance of Early Language Learning for All Children

    And has basic common sense rather than book knowledge. Really, anybody who thinks signing would delay speech is somebody who just totally lacks real life, practical, common sense. It's outrageous that 'professionals' continue to deny a language to children until they've jumped through a series...

    Cereall boxes

    I just barely recognized one or two. My mother wouldn't buy commercial cereal, if we wanted it, we had to buy it ourselves. She bought oatmeal and generic cheerios, or we ate eggs and biscuits (from scratch). I also didn't have television until I was 7 or so, and then we never had cable, so not...

    kids bullied bus monitor..

    I think they should be in school, but no extra curricular activities at all- no sports, no clubs, just academics. The should also have to do a year of community service at a nursing home- not together, each one by himself or herself, with supervision. And their parents should have marched...

    How many kids do you have/want to have?

    That's really interesting. Are they a sibling group, or are you the go-to family for deaf kids in foster care?

    List USA states & countries you have touched.

    I've been to 41 states. I missed South Carolina and a few of the northeastern states. I've lived in about ten of the states. I've also been to most of the Canadian provinces, except, again, the northeast. I've lived in three countries, visited 6.

    Conflict in relationship over deafness.

    I think you're right about needing time to calm down and recover from what sounds like a very stressful weekend. But I also have no other advice to give, just my best wishes for a healthy, nurturing relationship for both of you.

    What did you do today? Part II

    Our godsons/foster sons are here for the 'week-end' (their week-ends often begin on thursday and end on Tuesday during the summer). We sorted seashells, worked on a sticker book, they went swimming with my older kids, and now they are pitching the tent in the side yard and my husband is...

    What are you thinking about? Part V

    My neighbor died in a car accident this week, leaving her husband of 25 years and two children, a 21 year old, or there abouts, boy, and a 13 year old girl. She was a lovely person. My husband and daughter were on their way home and got stuck in traffic (and we live in the country- there is no...

    what unwritten rule(s) have you followed?

    I wouldn't ask to drive somebody else's car, either, and I don't drop in on people. I also don't ask to borrow anything more significant than a book or a movie.

    Military Moms Breastfeeding in Uniform Stir Controversy

    I am totally in favor of breastfeeding. Have no problem with breastfeeding in public. Extended breastfeeding is awesome (the longest I was able to nurse was two years with one of mine, but the rest were breastfed until at least one). But not in military uniform, at least in public. If you're in...
