[ - ] Any recs for very traditional overnight camps? Don’t want a place with pools, phone calls home, bathrooms in the bunks, etc. Prefer a rustic no-frills camp. Looks like Onaway/mowglis and Wyenogonic/Winona are this type but I’d prefer someplace coed if it exists. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think you are imagining these fictive "luxury camps" ... it's pretty common to have bathrooms in the bunks these days if only because it would be a nightmare of hygiene and liability if someone tripped in the dark outside just trying to pee. [ Reply | More ]

If you feel that you need to go to graduation, wish the nephew congratulations and head home. Or reach out in advance and find out if niece and/or nephew are going to be able to actually spend time with your kids...if not, say you won't be staying for lunch. You can always say that dd was sad that she didn't get to spend any time with cousin this weekend and you want to avoid similar disappointments in the future. Honestly, one of my kids' cousins pulled something similar. A few years ago we traveled 3 hours by plane to visit them for the weekend. Cousin's friends from the neighborhood were over the entire time...one even slept over. My dds had been excited to spend time with their cousin and were really disappointed. You can't really have quality time with extended family when others are in the mix. It's not like my kids and their cousin don't get along or anything like that, she was just too young to understand and her mom didn't understand that when family members travel great distances to visit, it's nice to spend some one-on-one time with them.

Wow. Flagged. It is irresponsible of you to accuse her of being a pedophile. There is nothing in the reports that give that motive to her. Or any other motive, except that she was trying to be nice to one kid. https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2019/05/24/new-hampshire-lunch-lady-free-meal-update [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My DD recently received recognition in a national academic competition, and her school did nothing to acknowledge it. DD was written about in various news sources and on the organization’s website, but meanwhile her school (which usually posts about every little thing students are doing) couldn’t be bothered to even write “good job!” on their blog. And I don’t feel like her teachers really cared either - they barely mentioned it. Is it silly that this bothers me so much? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I don't think so, I can't think of any American candy that has the honeycomb center. Closest I can think of is Clark Bar or Butterfingers but it's not the same center. [ Reply | More ]

Similar, but slight peanut flavor where crunchie has a slight honey flavor. Will do in a pinch. [ Reply | More ]

No, but Australia has its own version called "Violet Crumble" From Nestle, not Cadbury. I used to love Crunchies as a kid (British parents), but they are way too sweet now. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Any lawyers or legal experts on? Interested to know whether if there was a male freelancer at work who was rude to multiple women; and who excluded me from all his calls, meetings and emails to the point where i could not do my job and had to resign - and if multiple women reported concerns to male managers who did not address it, and if after I resigned he was actually hired full time - is there a case there? what would it be? 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Not an expert in this area and not sure what he’s done is actionable, but there seems to be a poster above who has a vested interest in convincing you that since you quit, you are out of luck. There is something called constructive termination. [ Reply | More ]
