Re: This is too big to handle alone.

I love this clip from Neal DeGrasse Tyson talking about us all being connected through the stars. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9D05ej8u-gU I have heard other physicists say very similar [more]

Re: OT: A ramble about kids...

Awesome post! When I was a kid, my favorite Aunt and Uncle were the ones who didn't have kids. There was nothing wrong with my other ones, but they were busy with their own kids. This one Aunt and Uncle really had time for me. I have great memories [more]

Re: Two Sets of Ident twins mixed: Revelations

Thank you for posting this. I grew up in a family with two adopted sisters and one biological one. We were our own little nature versus nurture case study in many ways. Though there were no twins, and we all knew about the adoption, so much of this [more]

Re: Today is the day

I agree that you have to start early, but that doesn't mean you have to start having conversations about how god isn't real from the time they are infants.

For me, starting early meant "indoctrinating" my kids with my way of [more]

My kids are 5 and 7, so I am not too far ahead of you down this path. And the questions started around the same time, when they started school. I can also assure you that while location may somewhat influence the exact nature of these discussions, my [more]

Re: Homemade crackers

Hope I can get them thin enough. Pizza dough has a tendency to return to home base after being stretched, if you get my drift. Danged stuff seems to have a mind of its own.

When it starts pulling back, walk away for 5 minutes and then [more]

Re: Homemade crackers

A comment on one of those links mentioned using a pasta roller to get the dough thin. Some googling how to do that (like how thin to roll it) led me to recipes that use pasta dough for crackers.

I just happened to have some pasta dough in [more]

Re: independent kids

My husband lived in the Philippines until he was 14. When he was looking at colleges, his parents strongly preferred he stayed local, and very strongly preferred he live at home. They even went so far as to offer to buy him a car so he could commute, [more]

Re: 1DEG's cookbook recommendation

I finally made the aloo saag tonight. It was really good! I ended up putting in more spinach than called for, but I like a lot of veggies. And it could have used a smidge less salt for my taste. But overall I loved it.

Re: CDC caught hiding data on vaccines

I am truly sorry that you and your family have to deal with an autistic member.

Please don't be sorry for this. Autistic people are just as lovable and valuable as allistic people. They are just as rewarding to parent and to know. If [more]

Re: 1DEG's cookbook recommendation

Oh good, I am so glad people like it. I really loved the recipes when I did the testing. Since my copy of the book came, I have been going through making things that bypassed me when it was in the testing phase.

Re: CDC caught hiding data on vaccines

Before I waste my time, I need to ask a question. Are you actually learning about why this is not only incorrect, but also offensive to autistic people? Because if you are a hard core conspiracy theorist who is not interested in actual science, I [more]

Re: Millennial Parents Sink Under Weight of Debt

Nancy, I live in San Diego County and mortgages can be had for in the 3% range. To pay $2500/month you would have a home well over $2 million.

Re: Millennial Parents Sink Under Weight of Debt

I do live in San Diego, and I feel like that mortgage is not completely unreasonable for the area, but if you can't afford it, you can't afford it. Right now is also a great time to sell around here, so if they have decided they need to down size, [more]

Leftover frosting? What a concept. I vote to quit sneaking around and just take a spoon to it until it's all gone.
