i think that is just a symptom of being in your mid-20's.
Genuinely sorry for your loss. For what it’s worth, I think you probably dealt with it the only way that you could. It’s healthier for your son to understand these things and to grieve naturally.
Our boys were six, eight, and ten when it happened and my wife lost her little girl. It was at 6 months, so it wasn’t really secret. Each kid had a different reaction. The youngest was more curious about what happened and it kinda “rolled off” that one. The middle kiddo really tried to please mom after and was really…
Is there a way to watch a foreign movie on Amazon Prime with the foreign subtitles? I read (I think it was on LifeHacker) that if you’re trying to learn a foreign language, then watch a movie with subtitles.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer is especially good for this, as the sequences where someone is watching others through a window while they talk inside a house (a regular occurrence in a show full of monsters), the captions show what the actors inside are saying, presumably based off the shooting script.
Lots of shows also…
Recently rewatched The Wire using captioning and my god, I missed so much! The show opened up in a completely new way for me and even though I loved it before, I don’t think I fully comprehended the true genius of the little moments until this
I got into the habit of watching ALL tv with the captions on years ago. I had a tiny shithole two bedroom apartment, a roommate who had to be up at 4am and had no heat in her room so had to sleep with the door open, and a VERY loud furnace. So when the fan kicked on I couldn’t hear the TV, and if it was loud enough…
Thank you. I’ve been trying to recreate the brief military history of an uncle who spent only a few months overseas in the Battle of the Bulge. I wasn’t aware that I might be able to see singed remnants of his military record. I’ll be planning a trip to St. Louis.
Just purchased the $99 package from the National WII Museum in New Orleans.
As a corollary: I think more kids should be taught the idea that families come in different types. My son is 5, and he gets very upset (understandably) when someone asks him about his “dad”, or if someone asks if I am his stepmom because they already met his other mom. It’s compounded by being the child of divorced…
I suppose it depends on your cortisone production, but usually a couple hours. It’s pretty good in combo with benadryl or other oral histamine, which suppresses the production so it lasts longer.
It’s because they potentially are not the same. My wife’s uncle who retired from, let’s call them, “Battery Company D” explained a few things to me several years ago about a production change that specifically accounts for this. Battery Company D used to leave about 0.040" (forty thousandths) of expansion gap between…
She prob just meant acid referring to battery acid as a generic term for the battery electrolyte.
Have to in Toronto, they use so much salt. Mixes with the snow and then gets stuck in the pads burning away at my dogs feet. If I dont go with booties, she will be limping within a block.
I lived in a smaller town for years that used sand instead of salt, and never had the problem once.
You gotta get them something like this, so their feet can breathe.
Hey, the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary brings back some nice memories. Many years ago, I lived in Windsor Castle (yes, that is the name of a Pennsylvania town) and spent many weekends at the Hawk Mountain North Lookout and at the Pinnacle.
Roadtrippers is good for picking out roadside attractions.
My kindergartner just wrote “My favorite team is the Huskers. Their colors are red and white. They are not good but I still like them”.
Better still, just have the smallest house you can get away with. My place in SW Florida is 770sq/ft, and even in the height of summer with the central air set to “meat locker”, my electric bill is less than $100/mo. In the “winter” it’s usually less than $50.
