Crazy Comment Monday!




Today it isn't so much a crazy comment so much as a crazy thing to do. Though the hosts seem to be making a good income having MILLIONS of people watch them microwave things like spray paint cans, video game systems, and the like. Patrick warned me not to watch it because there is a lot of swearing on the videos, and "they swear like men swear. Just so you know." I didn't see that on this video (one "God" that was pretty indiscernable in with the blowing up stuff commotion) but you're forewarned before clicking through the whole series. WHO WATCHES THIS STUFF?? Patrick says that he watches it so he doesn't feel he has to do the experiments himself. Well, ok then. I suppose that these guys are making millions of Americans safe. I wouldn't want to be working for their local fire department, and I wouldn't want to be their neighbours, though...

  1. My thoughts?

    How old are these fools? If they are under 18, where are their parents. If they are over 18... they probably don't live at home and some landlord is going to be ticked.

    I predict one of their experiments is going to backfire and they end up in jail for arson or vandalism.

    I don't think I am going to show this to my kids... or my husband.

  2. Why is it these morons strike me as the types to think this is great entertainment until something goes wrong and one is mamed or worse, then they would be the first people to try to sue the manufacturers of either the microwave or the fireworks? Or both...

  3. Well, I am really glad that Patrick doesn't feel the need to do the experiments himself. Better those idiots than him. But that was a little bit scary! Wow.

  6. He he he. Sorry to go against the tide, but I love these videos. And the "Can you blend it?" ones.

    I think it comes from being married to an electrical engineer. Sometimes, his job requires him to test how far you can push something before it explodes/breaks/electrocutes everyone in the building, so I can see that by doing these video's, people can learn "what not to do". Which is very valuable.

    Yey, Patrick for having the sense to wait for someone else to do it, instead of him.

  7. swearing like men do - Patrick hasn't met me ;)
    although I always watch my language around kids

    there is so much of this nonsense on TV and the net
    I saw previews for a new show called 'Ridiculousness' where supposed regular folks compete to wow the judges on how they can come up with the most stupid and dangerous thing to do

    thanks for thinking of us during Irene
    hugs to all

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…
