Would You Like a Cheesebooger?

Yuck! This article debates the legal repercussions of placing body fluids and other assorted yummies in other people's food items. Is it a misdemeanor or a felony? It depends on where you live!

Once, I was in our local Pizza Cabana picking up an order. Behind the register, I could see the teen worker dropped one of the breadsticks he was about to bring out to the tables and accidentally stepped on it. He looked up at the manager inquiringly. The manager gave a slight nod. The young man picked up the breadstick, put it on top of the others and proceeded out to the tables.

I followed him.

The manager saw I was about to inform the customers at the table of what was transpiring. "(Name!) Get back here! What were you thinking!??"

Um, yeah, he was thinking he was following orders. What else happens at restaurants that is unseen and unrecorded for YouTube? Maybe we don't want to know, but we'd like someone ELSE to have an idea and minimize it. Yuck.

  1. I just saw a report somewhere of the top 10 most disgusting behind the scenes at a restaurant videos

    was pretty disturbing

    then again - Nana used to say "there's clean dirt and there's dirty dirt" and if we dropped some food she'd tell us to "kiss it up to God" and eat it

    love the cat's new look, I'm sure she's much more comfy now - I might consider that for Mia at some point

  2. Eeew, you watched all 10? I don't think I'd be that brave!

    Yeah, there's clean dirty and there's dirty beyond the usual dirty.

  4. My mom and dad lived in Phoenix when young man made headlines, was fired and I believe charged with assault and adding a harmful substance to food for blowing his nose in a burger served to a police officer. He was caught because the police officer noticed snot on his burger.

    My mom and dad have never eaten at that fast food joint again, no matter what its location.

  5. Eeew, eeew, eeew! Another good reason not to eat fast food. Not that it couldn't happen in a nicer restaurant... I'm with Ganeida. Let's not go there.

  6. That's one of the reason I don't like sending food back if there's something wrong with it. What's wrong with me people?

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…

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…

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!
