The Jewelry Drawer by Helen Brown
... “Let’s All Do the Wiggly Woo” was the only thing that kept our younger daughter quiet in the car when she was three years old. I put it aside in case she wants to hear it again. She probably won’t remember it. Deeper in the drawer I discover more manifested memories. I long to see them because they belonged to people I loved, yet each one of them plunges a skewer in my heart: a dress ring that belonged to a beloved aunt; chunky necklaces Mum looked great in but nobody has been able to wear ...
Back to School Checklist by Kathy Burns-Millyard
... Younger children often need crayons and paint for instance, while older kids may need markers and colored pencils. As children move into junior high, high school and college, they'll require a larger variety of the basics too. Instead of just blue pens for instance, they often need blue, black and red. It's good to know the teachers at this point by the way: Some do not allow gel pens to be used for instance, while others may forbid red pens or yellow markers.
R U Wurreed Cuz Yur Cid Kant Spel? by Jeffrey Hauser
... I fear less and less young people read the newspapers and magazines. Although, I would guess, many read stories on the Internet. But, ultimately, reading helps spelling. I could refer you to an article I wrote about using text-message shortcuts like ‘LOL’ and such, which certainly doesn’t help the situation. But the problem of spelling is spreading among adults in general. My thinking is that if someone goes to the trouble of posting a business website, get a proofreader.
23 Games to Play in the Car (or Anywhere!) by Brook Noel
... As always, give younger players a hint or two. You make the game more difficult for older kids by having each player recite the previous list of words before adding their own. Tongue Twisters:Choose a person that you all know, example, "Sara." Then start with a phrase about that person that uses only the first letter of her name such as "Sara says strawberries" take turns adding "S" words with as few "connectors" as possible (a connector is a word that doesn't start with S) to see how silly ...
Back to School Savings by Cheryl Johnson
... My oldest daughter has a Jansport going on it's 3rd year. That makes it the best bargain in the long run. Look for the better brands on sale or off season! I have found that sometimes two zip binders are better than one. Rather than pack one binder to a bulging breaking point, divide subjects into two binders and they will last longer. The Infamous TI83 CalculatorI can't imagine my father's face if the school had told him I needed a calculator that costs roughly $100.
Nokia 3310 Mobile Phone Review-Handset Features by Bob Arndale
... calls and send texts with ease and is the ideal phone for someone who is not looking for modern features such as a colour screen, bluetooth or camera. It is therefore ideal for someone that does not get on well with new technology, as well as the younger teenager who may be a little heavy handed and therefore requires a more durable phone. Also, due to the lack of modern technology the Nokia 3310 would not cost the earth to replace if it was stolen or your teenage son/daughter misplaced it.
Being 'Mummy Fix-it' by Lina-Marie Catto
... Before long, you might actually find your progeny experimenting with fixing things for the younger ones and observe them taking a more pragmatic look at material objects. It’s a lot of fun being the “go-to” guy or gal in the household when there’s an emergency opportunity to be had. You can play it as “serious” as you want to with the kids – all you need to do is get yourself a mirror and just watch an episode of ER or All Saints to perfect your expressions!
Death Calculator-How Long will You Live? by Barbara Kimmel
... FACT: Having friends from a younger generation counters an age-related decrease in your social network. Social isolation sets the stage for a variety of age-accelerating conditions. Those who live alone, for example, have a shorter life expectancy due to poor nutrition; the absence of companionship and someone who can intervene during periods of depression or physical illness; a decreasing need to get dressed and groomed; and safety issues (for example, the hearing impaired often ...
