Hi Friends,
Went looking for a place to chat without all the frustration of those who love to troll.

Hopefully this will work this time, if not......then no place on topix will truly be troll-free.

Let's give it a whirl!!!

Hey there! Hopefully this place will stay troll free.
How are you feeling? The cold bug is going around here too and I know I'll end up getting it sooner or later too.

Gotta tell ya, that whole Gen. Petraeus scandal doesn’t sit well with me. I keep getting this feeling that he was setup because everything was just too convenient. Nothing is mentioned as to who is funding this book the mistress is writing. The other thing is that this type of sexual baiting setup was also used by the soviets during the Cold War for intel. Interesting that a good looking young chic shows up out of nowhere, who was in the military herself, and “voila” just happens to decide to write a book about Gen. Petraeus in the middle of a desert war with this lonely man who hasn’t seen his wife in many months. This whole thing smells of setup to me. The question is by who and why??????????

Yeah, I had 3 kids and they were all different. One was a disaster in school. The other got straight A's and the youngest was a B and C student. The great thing is, they all turned out really well.

And school isn't the deciding factor on how productive they will be.

It probably is, and that's really a shame considering some see it as a way to keep what supposedly happen in Libya quiet.

Damn conspiracy theories......lol!!!

Yes, we hold education at a high standard for our grandchild........but feel it is in their best interest, but not so high as to be outside of their ability!!!!

I'm a firm believer in kids being well rounded. As someone told me years ago, most education only teaches you how to act like what you want to be.

True, I believe school teaches us how to behavior in society as a whole......but then, I knew some kids who never did learn that lesson!!!

Good morning, Norcal and all. Thanks for the invite. Looks like a peaceful place. Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving? I don't even know how many people might be at my house, and no clue as to a menu yet. Maybe by next Wed. I'll have it under control. Have a great day!
