Um... Is This REAL??


The guy who is "interested in most phases of data processing" actually looks very normal.  Most of the other guys are... kinda creepy.  I have to wonder if this is REALLY a 1980's montage of guys looking for dates.  Please tell me we weren't ALL that weird during that decade.  Please?

  1. Ouch.

    Of course, we will look back on this decade and laugh at the clothes, the hair, and the 'isms' and laugh, too. Seeing what influences some today, Marilyn Manson, Kat Von D., Lady Gaga, etc....I'm sure we'll have plenty to laugh at.

    Thanks for the time warp. ;)

  3. My favorite: "What I'm not looking for is some big, overgrown monster that's always thinking about food."

  6. Blondee, you're welcome. I think.

    Virginia, Melvin actually seemed like a nice guy and I like bowling! The other guys... prolly not. Used car man is a heart attack waiting to happen!!

    Sue, I thought he was looking for an anorexic chick so he wouldn't have to spend much on their dates at Burger Barn...

    Tracy, I saw a video in the sidebar after another video, and another and another... and I wound up here. I had too much time on my hands this morning, I guess...

    Mama Burke, do you think the Viking thing was sexy? I'm thinking that opera with Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny... he's Elmer. (Bwuumhiwwda, you're so wuv-wee...)

  7. Oh my goodness. It kind reminds me of Love Connection. I used to love that show. I kind of liked the guy looking for a goddess. Particularly liked the chubby guy who said "no fatties...no juanitas...no dopers." What a catch! NOT.

    Too funny. Thanks for the laugh. I needed that today.

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!
