[ - ] Does anyone live in FiDi or Seaport? Are helicopters a problem? Dh and I are considering that area when we move this fall, but we were down there yesterday and it was so noisy and there were a lot of diesel fumes. Was that just because of fleet week, or is that normal? What are the best areas of those neighborhoods to live in? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

She starts at 9 am and picks up kids from school at 2:45. Apartment is empty when she gets here and I cleanup b-fast mess and start dishwasher. In a way there is also time to finish up laundry or sorting dishes while kids are home from school but I would expect 9-2:30 is plenty of time to get everything done and take a nice long lunch break too [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My sister is working on her wedding guest list and asked me what to do on this one. She met future BIL in college and obviously a lot of their guests are from their mutual groups of friends. I guess it came out that one of her friends asked if a particular guy was being invited and my sister said yes. Her friend claims that this particular guy (who is married now) date-raped her after college (no official charges or anything like that) and that if the guy will be there, she won't attend. Nothing to do about this, right? You just invite who you want and let the guests make their own decisions? My basic instinct is to tell my sister she does not need to play judge and jury here when something happened so long ago and she wasn't aware of it? 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think it's her problem (the woman who says she was date raped). She can't turn the world against this one person for the rest of her life. (Well, I mean, she can try if she wants, but she apparently had her chance to make something more of it at another time and did not. She can't go back now for a do-over imho) [ Reply | More ]

One regret that I have with my own wedding is not inviting a college friend. I had been on the fence about inviting this girl b/c we had lost touch but she was still someone I liked a lot, I hadn't made a final decision (and it's likely I still wouldn't have invited her) but a bridesmaid was telling me how upset she was about how this friend was to her during a difficult time in her life. It's possible this swayed me but it shouldn't have. Your sister should invite everyone she wants [ Reply | More ]

The day if the show she called me and told me she had a huge fight with dh because he didn't want her to go with a friend on Saturday night. I told her its ok if she cancelled but she said she doesn't want to etc. As soon as we met up she proceeded to call him and offering him to get extra ticket and come with. I told her that if this is the case they can buy my ticket and I will go another time.... When she wasn't complaining about him and telling me how controlling and horrible he is she was on the phone calling him trying to meet up with him etc. What the hell is this?

McCourt is, JMO, becoming a choice for kids who do not do well enough or just miss schools like ElRo, Beacon, Lab, etc. Like an uptown iSchool. NYCMS seems great, good stats, great principal, but the general student body didn't seem particularly engaged, and dd and I left the tour underwhelmed (btw, this was not a school we considered, but the kids they had representing them at the HS fair were great and made us consider it), Harvest Collegiate had one grade when we looked, and like McCourt at that time, it was difficult to get a full picture of a school that had not had a graduating class, and as a new school may not have been able to be as selective (though Harvest is a lottery, which is a ding for some families). Harvest did seem to have an interesting take on courses, and the teachers were pretty dynamic (the students again, were a mix of terrific and unengaged). Judging by the 2nd round list this year, there are not so many under the radar schools...all the schools mentioned had 2nd round seats in 2013, I don't think any of them had gen ed seats in round 2 this year.
