op - what do you mean about the tissue continuing to grow? can you clarify? i never loved my nose, but i think after playing a college sport - i got hit one to many times in the nose with the ball. its been fractured twice.... but i notices this year is kind of grown and almost tilts to one side. it didn't used to do this, but i guess all those knocks in the face finally caught up with me.

Recovery is not fun. its not the pain but more discomfort with the packing for the first few days and then just wearing the cast. Do you have kids? Bec keeping them away from your face also difficult. Took 2 weeks off work, most bruises gone by then or coverable with make up. Depends on how drastic the change. Whats wrong with your nose?

thanks for the info. i posted above. i never loved my nose, its a little big for my face, but just decided to live with it. over the past 1-2 years it seems like its grown and almost tilts to one side (slightly). it never used to do this, but perhaps playing a college sport and getting knocked in the face repeatedly and having a couple of fractures finally caught up with me. i'm just not happy with the way it looks and it really bothers me.

You absolutely can - although it may be late now bc of Kindergarten connect. I'd still give the parent coordinator a jingle. If you liked Success, you will not like MSC. Absolutely do SA for a year. You might really like it, and then your school issues will be resolved (for both kids!). If you don't love it, you can try everything again (except Hunter) for 1st. Many, many people move between K and 1st. [ Reply | More ]

I think you should try Clomid or injectables, or, if you really want to, IVF. The issue is most likely that you need a GOOD egg -- not that there is something wrong with your uterus which is rejecting the embryo. And with all three of those methods you will produce more eggs than normal. More eggs equals more normal eggs. Hence, you raise your likelihood of getting pregnant substantially. [ Reply | More ]

I actually would think that grades are more indicative of how a student will perform in college. Grades show that over the course of time and various subjects a student can learn, comprehend, and apply various concepts. I don't think the SAT really measures that in the same way. in coolege students take courses that they are graded on, not standardized tests. [ Reply | More ]

In my town they did this for a family who had a fire set by their housekeeper in their $2 million house a few years ago. The house was in really bad shape, but come on. If you're paying $45,000 a year in property tax alone you probably don't need my $50 Shop Rite gift card. While of course the public support and sentiment was very appropriate, I thought that the solicitation (and acceptance) of money by surrogates of that family was a bit tacky. [ Reply | More ]

you didn't say what is your budget and "affordable" means different things to different ppl (esp on UB which is heavily skewed by higher HHI tri-state area users). I posted above - try Costa Rica, Belize, Panama or Honduras. Alternatively rent a villa on one of the islands, might be better suited than hotel. IMO, Caribbean is overpriced and quite boring (esp for two wks or so). St. John is known to be beautiful, so is St. Lucia but both not the cheapest. Anguilla, St. B and T&C are both expensive and more couple/UMC family destinations. [ Reply | More ]

We like it. The Dutch side is very urban in that it has a lot of casinos, restaurants, stores, nightlife etc within walking distance like a city.

I have been going for years. It depends what you are looking for. I love it. I love st barths more, but there is a really big cost difference. The nice thing about st maarten is that there really is quite a bit to do, the beaches are great and there are many wonderful restaurants. Anguilla is boring as hell. You really need to know where to stay...if you want a nice place thats affordable check out grand case beach club. Its a good location in grand case, near lost of good restaurants and still close enough to marigot to head in for dinner or the day. The beach their has tiny waves so its good for kids. Parts of the french side are very nice, and parts are an absolute dump. Dutch side overall is better maintained....but is more urban and has only become more developed or tourists in recent years....so its still a little lacking. [ Reply | More ]

I have a summer birthday boy, youngest in his private school class. If I had it to do over again I would NEVER put him in that position. In K the curriculum is geared towards six year olds, in 1st it is geared to seven year olds etc. A year matters. Part of the issue is that a lot of summer kids are redshirted, making my DS the youngest by 9-12 months. It's purposeful, the schools KNOW that the oldest kids handle the academic demands better and their acceptances skew old. Lots of old summer through Nov/Dec birthdays and very few spring through young summer. [ Reply | More ]
