I know that ice fishing is much more a part of the culture there than it is here, but did you hear about the two teenagers in NJ who died last week? The problem is that people aren't paying attention to how cold it is (or isn't).

Wow, Just read the article, so sad!

I will cut slack to teenagers -- because they're kids. But here we have adults setting up their fish shacks on thin ice, near open water, etc. Heck, people will be out on the ice fishing in the spring, when it's so warm out, fish houses are falling through thin ice on the same lake.

That stinks :(

It was 11 degrees out when I dropped the boys off at school. I remember walking to school in the winter and surviving when i lived in Colorado, but I didn't complain that they let the kids go right inside instead of waiting for the bell :) I'll have to find some other character building lessons for them.

The igloo is really cool looking, but what did the girlfriend do during those five weeks? Her mom sounds like a controlling PITA and if they do get married, I hope they don't live anywhere near her (for his sake).

Did anyone see the clip of the child who got tossed from a car during an accident? Parents were driving down a snowy road, lost control, the rear of the car got creamed from the side by a semi, the child was ejected from the car into the oncoming lane, and another semi came along right away and missed the child by about a foot. Scary as all heck to watch, amazing the child is o.k.

OMG, no. I didn't see it, but I started shaking just reading your description.

My 4 year old, E, has been sitting in a booster seat since Sept (his bday). On Tuesdays I drive Ry's friend home from school, but I forgot to grab one of the extra boosters from my husband's car on Monday night. I told E that he would have to sit in his old car seat to pick up the first graders and he said "it looks just like the seats that the Little Einsteins sit in when they fly in Rocket!" and got in it without argument. This morning he asked if he could sit in his Rocket seat again. As long as he is not complaining, I'll let him sit in the car seat with the 5 point harness :)

Miscellaneous:

News Headline: "Michelle Obama wears bangs, Reed Krakoff dress to swearing-in."
News Headline: "Prediction: Michelle Obama will wear a repeat gown on Inauguration Day."
The day will come when we have a woman president--and a First Gentlemen will have to put up with all this endless fashion reporting.
Except he won't.

News Headline: "Man on probation for donkey molesting arrested on new charges."
Amazing what he was arrested for this time.

QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language:
S.L., a Chicago reader, writes:
"How many people do you think know the meaning of the word 'penultimate'?"
QT tested a sample survey on this, which means it asked around.
The final, or ultimate, person it asked knew the definition.
The person before that, the penultimate, didn't.
The person before that, the antepenultimate, did.
The person before that, the preantepenultimate, didn't.
QT will have to stop its survey there.
Unless someone knows what comes before "preantepenultimate. "

Reeeeeeeeeeeeediculous: University of Colorado study has recommended that teachers stop using red ink to correct student work because the color red subjects students to "emotional loading" that can make them feel "shouted at," damaging their self-esteem.

ITA. I thought, what do you think, that they don't have sex whereever it is they live together/near one another?

If mom was so concerned about daughter's virtue for five weeks, she should have given THE DAUGHTER the task to occupy her time. Why is the man responsible for your daughter's sexual activity?

I think we now know why the daughter lives on the other side of the planet...

So I've talked about Power Lunch here before. A few of us from work go over to church on Wednesdays where lunch is served and the pastor gives a mini sermon.

I just got hit on there. Is no place sacred? Am I safe nowhere?

Another guy asked one of my co-workers if she was going to finish her carrots, he wanted them.

Weird day.

Advice columnists often advise people to head to church to meet available people, but I think the idea is to get to know them, not hit on the first hot chick they encounter.
