retired history teacher & medical "something"
I’d did, and it was. Thank you, Geophyzz.
Send your kids to trade schools, not law school. We have so many lawyers they have to advertise, but not nearly enough electricians or plumbers. Good pay, make your own hours, and it’s an honest profession.
Amen! And again I say, AMEN!
I also knew how to read when I started school. If my sister or I were getting on her nerves (that happened a lot, oddly enough) Mum would ask us to look up something in the encyclopedia and we’d be gone for hours. But if it was an assigned book, my mind would drift, and I never got it finished.
A friend of ours said that to her own daughter who was in the middle of a tantrum. Kid stopped cold, gasped, and then cried, “That’s . . . That’s a terrible thing to say!”
My dad always said if coffee was supposed to have milk and sugar, The Good Lord would have put them in the bean.
Sad, but true. When TFG was hoarding Covid supplies, Gov. Hogan’s Korean born wife managed to get Maryland the things we needed from her home country. They were flown in and delivered to an “undisclosed location”. When you have to hide medical supplies from your own government, lest they be confiscated, things are really bad.
I just turned 81, and most people do not believe me. I could easily pass for 50.
And that’s the truth. The Iranians held the hostages only until Carter was no longer president. Reagan had nothing to do with it.
He was the one who closed the mental hospitals. I’ll agree some of them were real snake pits, but closing them rather than cleaning them up was not the answer. A LOT of the problems we have now are directly related to that decision.
