<quoted text>I told Kristen that none of the kids working at the place we get our Christmas candy could work at McDonalds' as they would all be way over qualified. Say you get 4 or 5 different things. Each thing is in a small bag marked with the price. You take it to check out, and they're going to give you a larger brown paper bag to put it all in. They write down all the prices from each of the little bags on the brown bag. Add it all up, plus figure the sales tax and tell you what you owe. You give them the money and they count the change back to you. No calculators, and no fancy cash register with pictures on it. Oh--and say you want a quarter of a lb of something--they measure it out and weigh it on a old fashioned scale and can actually figure out how much a quarter of a lb of something that's $6 a lb should be. I absolutely love it.
And forget going into Walmart, going to the yardage counter and asking them for a third of a yard.....it will take them 12 minutes to figure out the 12 inches. Am I dating myself now?!

Exactly. It's a fearful thing sometimes for kids to ask questions about WHY math is done a certain way, and what each type of equation means in simple terms.

It's really cold here. But I have someone to keep me warm. Can you send us some sunshine? Have a nice weekend.

Yes, especially when a calculator can't be used during certain types of math tests and the child can't do long division or multiplication......it hinders them and their success down the road!!!
Hope you are well and having a nice warm weekend:-)

Good morning, Lady J and Lady Cov. What y'all doing up so early on Sun. morning? Glad I don't need to go outside; it's 21 out there right now. It's come down 3 degrees since 4:30. Chilly, huh? Y'all have a good'n.

BRR. That's cold, perfessor. It's 32 here. I'm wrapped up in a comforter on the sofa and drinking some coffee. Trying to get up the energy to actually do something constructive today. Don't know why I feel the need to do anything, but I'm sure there's something that needs doing.

Did your washer get installed? You can keep the s---, people here have no idea of how to drive it. Although, it can make for a beautiful scene.

Morning, Kev! Thank you. Thanks to Perf, also!

Cov, dishwasher installed. Miss the old one, but this one does at least work, so no complaints.

The food recommended is Prescription Diet C/D. That would be ducky, except the pair of cats don't seem to like it much. I suppose if they get hungry enough?
Bad news from Sears. The dishwasher that I was supposed to have yesterday - won't be delivered until next year. Okay, really just another week (1/4)- but haven't I suffered enough? Rhetorical. No need to respond.:-)
Good morning Junket and friends ... Just passing by to wish everyone a Happy New Year ... it's going to be a good one, I just know it ... What happened in 2012 stays in 2012 ... Don't worry, be Hippie, LOL ... Hearts, FC <3 ...

Howdy Bellah! How you doing?
Greetings Russsh! Happy afternoon to you.
Hello Perse! Describe decent weather?

I know what I like - 60 to 80 degrees F, mostly sunny with the occasional soft breeze.{sigh}
