    If you're lucky enough to grow brussels sprouts in a garden (and really, they're not tricky at all so try it!), the big leaves make the MOST HEAVENLY greens. Sauteed hot with a little olive oil,...

    alternate_universe, Texas doesn't require testing of homeschoolers either. Nor are private schools required to participate in mandatory testing. It's not uncommon.

    First and foremost, don't panic! Barring unusual circumstances, kids read when they're ready to read!!

    Well, you'd be better off than a bunch of Texans in terms of proximity to nice venues. Meadowcreek Park in Kosse, TX is gorgeous, and is about 45 minutes from Waco. 2 1/2 hours to Texas Rose Horse...

    I have had hubby in my life now for longer than I lived without him. A benefit of middle age. :)

    Hubby is not horsey in the least. He couldn't tell you how many even live on the farm.

    Brush your teeth immediately beforehand with a minty toothpaste. Kills some of the sweetness for at least a little while. (I looked for a barfy icon but nothing quite suited...)

    Thanks for the suggestion, BTDT. I tried Caprica but it didn't "stick." Worth trying again later for sure. The awesome glow was still on BG, I reckon, and that'd be hard for anything to match.
