[ - ] What's the ultimate classic bag? I have YSL Muse/Downtown, Mulberry Bayswater/Alexa, Balenciaga City, Prada Saffiano totes, and Chanel Classic in various colors. I'm yet to buy a Birkin cause I felt too young for Birkin. Is Birkin still the holy grail of classic baga? If not, what's your suggestion? I haven't bought any new bags for 3 years except for a diaper bag. 24 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OK, I guess I'm the outlier. We have a spacious 3BR with riverview on RI and really love it here. We're a very international community and particularly good for families with young kids. Lots of playgrounds, children's activities and programs, with so much safe and open green space. The day nursery here is fabulous and the PS/IS has a decent G&T program. There's a nice international grocery/deli, wine shop, several restaurants, an ice cream/sweets shop, Duane Reade, Starbucks, etc. We take the tram and the F to get to Manhattan to do any major shopping. My commute to the UWS is 30 minutes. We are also actually very optimistic about the Cornell development. Keep an open mind and come check us out. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] California just issued a mandatory 21 day quarantine rule for any person with "personal contact" with ebola patients, e.g., that bitch nurse from MSF. This from a liberal state with a democratic governor. Obama/CDC are getting left behind as the states move to enact common sense protections. 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Cuomo didn't. He allows home confinement, which I think is fine. Post a cop, and arrest them if they leave their house. $30/hour in overtime pay to quarantine somebody. Much cheaper than quarantining in a hospital setting, plus a lower risk of contaminating a healthcare environment. [ Reply | More ]

IDA that most men would prefer a skinny woman with a meh face over a slightly chubby woman with a *drop-dead beautiful* face (and probably, big boobs).

[ - ] Is Speyer program more advanced than in other privates because it's supposed to be for gifted kids or is it just that they push more in early grades and by middle school it's on the same level with other privates? 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

it is a totally different kind of school than the other privates . . .its not about the level of advancement but more about working with kids who think differently than most others [ Reply | More ]

Thank you. In terms of academics is it possible to compare to any other private schools? Do you think it's more rigorous, more structure? [ Reply | More ]

Can't really compare but I think it is just as rigorous if not more than most top privates. . . the teachers and the curriculum are really geared to truly gifted, not just bright kids. . . My DD is so happy there because they get her and she doesn't have pretend to be like everyone else. . . also the pace at which they move through material is very quick. .. [ Reply | More ]

Just curious, how does your daughter differ in terms of thinking? Are all kids there more than just bright kids? [ Reply | More ]

They do a lot more work than other privates. The kids start 3 hrs of homework in first grade. They take away PE time to study. I am sure the kids are much more advanced in the early years just from spending so much more time on academics. [ Reply | More ]

+1 - finding the opposite - they really emphasize the whole kid, help these kids learn how to learn from mistakes rather than beat themselves up over it. We transferred DS from another school and he is just a different person, so much happier [ Reply | More ]

My DF has a kid at Speyer. 45 min homework daily in K, 1 hr in 1st. Drill and kill. Her kid is this stereotypical nerd who hates all sports and can't really play well with other kids. They are happy. [ Reply | More ]

^Also, they make kids take the ERBs every year starting in K and if your dc is behind they push tutoring. [ Reply | More ]

This is not accurate--definitely not drill and kill. Very integrated, enriched curriculum designed to get the kids thinking deeply. [ Reply | More ]
