For me, it is a priority. So we don't schedule anything else on sunday mornings. When dd was younger, I campaigned to change sports schedule to eliminate sunday morning games. It didn't completely work, but it got even nonreligious parents talking about the need for family time, and the number of games on Sunday was drastically reduced. Even though dh is not religious, he also keeps sundays mostly free, so we can have family time after church. We raised dc to prioritize church and to find ways to give back to church by serving in various ways. They know we tithe (DH supports this, even though he rarely goes to church. He usually describes himself as agnostic, but was raised in the church) and they know we give our time & talent, too. Many of our friends are part of our parish, so that helps too. [ Reply | More ]

op: for me this is the reason for panic. If we don't close our borders and don't make any precautions for protecting us from this disease, it is only a matter of time before pandemic begins. It is so irritating to me that people cannot see the writing on the wall. Furthermore, I am finding it difficult to believe that it's just spread through bodily fluids, if its then why are the health workers which are wearing full body gear are getting sick as well. Or perhaps it is that the virus can remain outside the host for a very long time in the bodily fluid. [ Reply | More ]

This. The answer is to actually enforce the immigration laws, stop allowing millions to sneak in from Mexico. Among the millions sneaking in from Mexico, some have Ebola [ Reply | More ]

We certainly don't have the cure and it is in no way close to being mass produced even if we do. Also we have no way of knowing the side effects for this "cure". The death rate in USA cannot be properly identifying because we don't have a pandemic yet. I pray that we don't find out. [ Reply | More ]

First of all, it is not Obama's fault. Feminists demanded the male secret service agents be fired to make room for Female secret service agents. Turns out the female agents were not as strong as the male ones that were fired (surprise!) and the intruder made it 300 feet in to the white house. Not Obama's fault [ Reply | More ]

Interesting that you don't wonder why our borders have not been closed and no precautions have been taken here. 100 years ago no one was allowed into this country before undergoing thorough medical examination for fear of spreading TB. In the very least we should not allow anyone in who has visited the afflicted countries without proper screening and quarantine period first. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] On average, where would a "K" reader place your child for Grade 1 - bottom of the pack or middle of the pack (I know it isn't top of the pack, as I hear some grade 1's are reading Harry Potter, which this book is nothing like!!!). I am new to the US system and my DD has basically gone from partway through K into Grade 1, so I just want to see whether grade 1 is a good fit for her (too early to be asking the teacher I think). 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
