Skip the homework if you've got a concussion
Sun Jan 5, 2014
How about other kids in school with neurological issues? My kid with epilepsy is now in a university and her seizures are mostly under control, but when she was in high school, she had absolutely no time to recover after a seizure. She had some seizures during tests and quizzes--you coul …
Tens of thousands likely without power until Saturday; more snow is on the way
Thu Dec 26, 2013
When a home, school or business uses a private well for water, the pump does not work when the power goes out. It's not about the heat, it's about the indoor plumbing. Outhouses are frowned upon in many suburban neighborhoods and centers of commerce.
From Mary Poppins facts to kid appeal, an insider's guide to 'Saving Mr. Banks'
Fri Dec 20, 2013
Nope, "mom" got through the movie with dry eyes just fine--it was "dad" who needed the kleenex! I think men will find more reason to tear up than women over this movie, and my husband proved that. Our kids are college-age, all enjoyed the movie. We liked the roles played by Paul Gi …
'Gilligan' sets sail on sea of movie hits and misses
Thu Dec 19, 2013
I thought the "Scooby Doo" movies were scary bad, only saw them because they were part of a double feature at a drive-in (we still have a few of those). For the Movies that Worked: what about "The Naked Gun", which was taken from "Police Squad!" tv show? Leslie Nielsen played the sa …
Washington state woman live-tweets husband's fatal auto accident
Wed Dec 4, 2013
My 20-year-old daughter has seizures and they are mostly controlled by meds; she is down to one brief absence seizure per month (sort of like a brain re-boot). She has never had any warnings with her seizures, and she has had every type of seizure on the spectrum.
Thanksgiving shopping? Not in states that ban it

I haven't seen this mentioned here, but the Canadians already had their Thanksgiving holiday in October.
Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift win big at American Music Awards
Sun Nov 24, 2013
My 22-year-old daughter is still talking about the Arlo Guthrie concert she went to a couple of months ago, and she is still complaining about missing out on John Prine tickets, since all but the most expensive seats were left by the time she heard of the concert. Her 20-year old sister likes …
Oxford Dictionaries names 'selfie' word of the year
Mon Nov 18, 2013
"Selfie" is sure to be near the top of another list, the Banished Word list released by the good people of Lake Superior State University. The list comes out on New Year's Day. I'm going to guess that "twerking" will make the Banished Word list, too, and none too soon.
Emergency meningitis vaccine will be imported to halt Ivy League outbreak
Fri Nov 15, 2013
In reply to: LadyK2000 #18The article is about an outbreak of meningitis, NOT hepatitis. Hepatitis B is not likely to kill you in 36 hours. Hepatitis is a liver disorder; meningitis affects the brain.
Parents of Renisha McBride on charges: 'I hope he spends the rest of his life in jail'
Fri Nov 15, 2013
Dearborn Heights, where this young lady was killed, is a suburb of Detroit, it is not in Detroit. My kid lived in Hamtramck for four years, which is completely enclosed by Detroit, but has its own police/fire/EMS.
