Good morning, Chairman.

EX-president Carter is running his mouth again....criticizing PM Blair for slavishly following President Bush in sending troops to Iraq.

I used to be undecided about whether Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter was the worst president...But now, Carter has won that dubious distinction.

Carter is indeed worse than Clintoon. Clintoon is a narcisstic womanizing short-sighted bubba.

There is a malevolence about Carter. The man is sick in his soul.

Dittos, Newsbee, on prairiebreeze's request to hear about your GardenFest!

There is a malevolence about Carter.

That sentence, prairie, captures the essence of this man who purports to be a Christian. I despise...no, make that "loathe"...hypocrisy.

Good morning Chair, everyone. We have another beautiful day in paradise down here. I would say we need some rain, but if I do so, so close to hurricane season, we'll get three of them right in a row.

And I'm not superstitious...

One of the conversations we had with daughter-child at her graduation time was listening to her “fears” about her ability to support herself on entry-level teaching salaries.

After being reassuring to her and her ability, hubby and I reminisced about all the second hand furniture we started out with, how we built what we have on our own, without help or capital from anybody.

We then marveled at how we survived in starting out in life together in the aftermath of the Carter years.

Same here, prairie. One of my favorite lines from an Irish poem is "We clambed the hill togither."

It is exhilarating to accomplish anything on your own. Your daughter can do it if she decides to do it...just as you and your hubby have.

Good Morning!

I can relate to your talk with your daughter in regards to starting out in the field of education.

My first teaching job was in the Catholic schools. I think my starting salary was $13,000 in 1984. My wife and I lived in a small apartment after we were married. A hodge podge of furniture was the best we could muster; but we were always happy.

You make do... I see colleagues today, who are just getting married, and start in a nicer home that we have now. They still complain about finances, and have never gone through the apartment, duplexes, and starter home phases.

Would you remember the title of that poem? It sounds like something I might like to use on the invitations to our 40th Wedding Anniversary celebration.

And absolutely FACINATING how I'm pulling stuff out of the rafters of outbuildings that we purchased in the mid to late 60's at household auctions, having it refinished and now use it as 'the GOOD stuff', when we could easily afford to purchase NEW.

Among my treasures are 2 solid walnut fern stands, walnut display cabinets, round oak tables, square oak tables, buffet mirrors, side chairs, you name it. I just wish I still had the stuff that I considered NOT good enuf to hold on to which would 'only take up storage space'. I especially long for the walnut buffet I sold for $60 in 1979 when we moved.

There was a time that I thought that Carter was the worst president, but one of the best “ex-presidents” in his behavior.

No longer.

He now wins “worst” for both categories, after the way he shafted both Bush’43 and Clinton(his “great” North Korea negotiations)

It is very important to relate to your children, continually, how important for them to realize that all the “stuff” you have was NOT there when you first married... that it was ACCUMULATED over time - as your stability and wealth increased.

I think that lack of understanding that is what has gotten so much of our economy into credit trouble, and possibly (quite likely) into marital trouble. The process of giving dollars that SHOULD be put into saving for the future goodies which will accumulate, instead going into the pockets of the banks, condemns people to never being able to accumulate wealth, and to a life of stagnation.

We have to continually preach this truth to the children who have respect for us (and even those who don’t).

Good Morning Chair.

"Tony Blair is being considered to head the World Bank after Wolfowitz leaves.

"The president of the Bank comes from the largest shareholder, which is the United States, and members are represented by a Board of Governors. Throughout the year, however, powers are delegated to a board of 24 Executive Directors (ED). The five largest shareholders - the U.S., U.K., France, Germany and Japan - each have an individual ED, and the additional 19 EDs represent the rest of the member states as groups of constituencies. Of these 19, however, China, Russia and Saudi Arabia have opted to be single country constituencies, which means that they each have one representative within the 19 EDs. This decision is based on the fact that these countries have large, influential economies, which requires that their interests be voiced individually rather than diluted within a group. The World Bank gets its funding from rich countries as well as from the issuance of bonds on the world's capital markets"

Wonder why the choice would not be someone from the United States.

I should write a bit of a follow-up to my request for prayers and suggestions of a couple weeks ago regarding changing my daughter's school.  Briefly, I determined early on that I would be taking her out of the Catholic school system at 7th grade (no Catholic high schools within 50 miles) and therefore the question was where to place her for 5th & 6th grade.  The choice is continuing the school she's in now, which is over 20 miles from our home and in a different school district, or going into a quite similar (though stronger) Catholic school in our own school district that is only 5 miles away.

After much thought, and writing down all the PROs and CONs, much tended to balance out.  Teachers and counselors (I talked to eight!) thought she'd be fine, academics and academic ratings similar, music and sports pluses and minuses each way, after school activities balance out, evening opportunities in communities near the school community different but balance out, no compelling factors when I spoke with her... 

Always standing out is that with our life now so totally oriented around the present school district, that ALL of her friends, save one, live over 20 miles away from us.  None are in the school district she'll be in at 7th grade.  When we spend afternoon/ evening at home, she has zero neighborhood friends now.  She doesn't mind her time alone with me, but it would be nice if she had a choice of walking or biking over to someone's house.  I didn't see that changing, if she remained in the present school.  That would mean that when she entered the Jr.High, she would be utterly alone despite having been raised here all her life.  That, added to the complete change of culture from the very gentile atmosphere of the Catholic school and the very Christian friends we now have to the extremely coarse environment I saw at the Jr.High, shifted the balance decidedly.  Despite really looking, I saw no similar items shifting it the other way, at least not from the most important point of view of what is best for daughter.

So, I registered this week for her going to the other school for 5th grade.  On Thursday, she spent the day there, and it went OK (I lurked there during the afternoon, observing the classroom)... She'll be accepted just fine, she'll do just fine.  There will be adjustments, of course, for her to make, but I saw no major problems.

Since the "new school" is on the other side of our home from where I work, I'll be having to drive an extra 10 or more miles 1-2x/day.  Probably will entail some extra child care costs the next two years, at least.  It will definitely mean needing to coordinate with her mom about visiting times, and given that mom is in total opposition to this decision, that will be a great challenge.  I said above, "I saw no similar items shifting it the other way, at least not from the most important point of view of what is best for daughter", but there definitely are items that would have shifted it if the parents' comfort was the most important part of this equation.

In addition to her changing friends and operating communities, though, I will be doing the same over the next years... I'll change the church we attend to the one of the new school (it is about the closest to us anyway), we'll probably change piano teacher, etc... as my life has also been oriented around the community where I worked, and she was going to school.  We'll be reorienting toward the new church, school, and our home rather than the area I work.  Going to be major shifts for both of us, but I'm sure this is the right thing to attempt now.

I thank you all for considering and reading, commenting both on threads and privately to me, and the prayers. 

Oh: the other clinching factor that I only realized because of the discussion with all of you, and possibly the most critical factor of all:

Now, at this age, my daughter is quite accepting of my parental authority and that I'll do my best to make this decision in her best interest.  Two years from now, who knows the fight I may have had with her! 

Without you FRiends, I may not ever have had that most important insight.  Thank you all.

Ah... fooey... doesn’t matter how much I proofread - something always gets left out... grrrrrr...

Should have included, “Placing her in the ‘new school’ will assure that when she gets into Jr.High, there will be at least 20 (probably many more) children who she knows from school, church, and the activities we’ll take part in over during the next two years.”

It's a Robert Burn's poem, IG, entitled "John Anderson, My Jo".....Jo meaning sweetheart and hill being the hill of life.

A dear Irishman, visiting in our town, came to my class at my invitation and recited it in his Irish brogue.

All but one of my students were delighted....the one? A rude girl who put her head down on her desk. (If I'd had a 2 x 4 handy, I would have laid her in the aisle and taken the consequences. Needless to say, she felt my wrath in words later.)

Good morning! Beautiful day here and more yard work is on the horizon. I am going to early mass (hubby is sleeping in because he went last night while I was finishing cooking for our dinner guest). Lots more work to do in the garden, but since it is a lovely day it won't be a chore.

I have to agree with everyone; Carter is an evil man. How he ever got the presidency I do not know...maybe a pact with Satan.

Good Morning ladies!

We'll be heading to a later Mass, as my usher crew has the 11:00 Mass.

Excitedly awaiting for the return of our eldest daughter to return from France. (This week!)

Youngest daughter has had dance recitals the past 2 nights. The dancers are from 5 years old up to 18. Some of the dances by the little ones were just precious!
