[ - ] Ok, so here's my day - on easter we went to a Chinese buffet where I was reminded of how much I adore crab rangoon, so I am determined to make it at home instead of continuing to spend on takeout. I pull out my dusty deep fryer and clean the hell out of it. Once finished, I pour a gallon of oil into it, and realize it's not enough oil, so I go to Costco and buy new oil to top it off.

Now full, I make my filling and get my wrappers ready to form the crab rangoon while the oil is heating. Guess what. The appliance is dead. Either I left it unused too long or I got water in the works while washing it, either way I need to throw it out AND I have crab rangoon fixings waiting to go. Dd is home from school at this point so we go to Costco. No deep fryers anywhere, apparently it's "seasonal" ... so we drive to Walmart which is another 20 minutes away. [ Reply | More ]

We can both be right. Compare your $7 take out place versus someone grinding the grain to make the dough, culturing the milk to make the cheese, steaming live crab, shelling the crab, sniping chives or green onions from their garden or windowsill...to make the crab rangoon. Tell me which tastes better and is better for you and how much of it you eat. [ Reply | More ]

I would probably let it go. I grew up in a family where my parents really laid down the rules. I didn't dare do anything that they might not approve of--even mild stuff like putting Sun In in my hair (all the teen girls did it) or wearing overly large earrings. I freaked my mother out when I was 40(!). DH and I got temporary tattoos and put them on our ankles. Then we went to visit my mother. We made sure we exposed our fake tattoos. She freaked out! We had a good laugh, but it just went to prove that she had her rules and nothing was going to change that, despite the fact that I was 40 and she was 82. It's not going to kill your daughter to have a belly button ring. Relax. [ Reply | More ]

There is a recent NYT article on how coding is basically a way of thinking, of breaking things down into first principles and abstracting them somewhat. I'm not explaining it well but this really opened my eyes to why coding is a very useful thing to learn and with applications beyond computers. You should find this article. [ Reply | More ]

Hopefully it's learning how to code and teach yourself any language and create a language. Instead of learning how to code in a specific language with limited application of said language. Coding is important to create tech, like most intelligent and/or successful people, instead of being handicapped with tech as a tool, like her mother and most people. [ Reply | More ]

Why does she like to code? What does she want to do with it? It's "important" because the world basically functions on coding. But - she needs to apply that to her and her life and why she feels it's important. Helping people communicate, making the world smaller, safer, etc? [ Reply | More ]

His answer: "The evolution of Sunni/Shia power base politics in the face of a potentially burgeoning Iran and a transitioning MENA regional order" ... yeah I was not going to come up with that ...

The outside or actually in her V (people use the term imprecisely)? If outside, I would suggest not using soap and letting her soak in bath without soap. When you wash her hair the water gets a little soapy, that's more than enough then get her right out. Make sure she knows how to wipe well so it is try. For my DD, not wiping well led to a lot of this and she finally learned. Bathing every day but not in soap will help. I would also try desitin. Again this is all if it's external. [ Reply | More ]

if she takes a bath, no soap, and hair wash at the very end right before she gets out. My dd has same issue. If she says it hurts and is redder towards the inside, could be a wiping thing, use desitin and no underwear at night. [ Reply | More ]
