Off-Topic / Re: home school system info

Idk what the answer is but a lot of times when kids are home schooled they are at a huge disadvantage if they want to get a good job.  And most kids who are home schooled end up being a social misfit and can't function because they are sheltered from ever dealing with other people.  Maybe having more private schools that do not cost $30,000 a year to attend? But at the same time it costs a lot to run a school and a private school does not get state funding.  A private school where you can have rules and if you attend here you will abide by the rules.  I am truly afraid of what our country has become and what the far left are trying to turn it in to.  People had better wake up.  But honestly some things have just gone to far and it isn't going to change.  I honestly cannot believe what has happened to our country.  I never dreamed I would see some of the things I am seeing.  :(

I have a friend who homeschooled her daughter from grade 1 to grade 11.  During this time I remember many many times she and her daughter would be out shopping, out eating, going to get haircuts, etc when she was suppose to be Ďin schoolí. I also know sheís allowed to sleep later than Ďschool startedí. Anyway the daughter decided she wanted to go to regular school for 12th grade.  She wanted a graduation ceremony, a prom, etc.  So off she went to Ďregularí school.  The first month or two were great, made a lot of friends, etc.  However, the newness wore off and she could not accept having to show up and stay all day, 5 days a week.  Could not get up out of her seat anytime for a drink, eat, or turn on tv.  There was NO way she was going to listen to some idiot teacher all day.  All this was new to her and by December grades were all failing and she cut so many classes she finally dropped out.  She could not accept the rules of school.  Today she is bar tending, has 2 children by 2 different men who are not being raised by her, and countless men in her life.  If you decide to homeschool do what country girl said, donít do it yourself, go either to an online school or a school in your district, either one but make sure it has a curriculum they must follow, and make them follow

Yes, happened to me many times, frustrating!

Thank you.  At least it is not me.  I just wanted to make sure it was not something somehow with me.  Apparently not.

No, itís not just you.  Itís so frustrating to spend the time doing the survey, and then seeing something went wrong!

Seriously I would ask him.  He might say no, but he might say yes, you won't know until you ask.

That I let my first big love slip out of my hands.  I did fall in love again with a great guy and we had 2 wonderful children, but I still often think of him and wonder what my life would be like if we married.

Off-Topic / Re: Genetic Testing For Breast Cancer
« on: January 11, 2020, 03:57:08 pm »Message ID: 1308722
I have breast cancer and had the genetic testing and found I am a carrier.  My both girls and my sister had the testing and thank God none have the gene. 

So you are saying if you have this "testing" and you do not have the gene you cannot get breast cancer?

I don't carry BRCA2 gene!

I  carry the gene. if you carry the gene there is a greater chance of getting cancer.  That was why Angeline Jolie had a total mastectomy.  She had ovarian cancer found she was a carrier of the gene and took the surgery to avoid breast cancer.  You can get cancer if you have or dont  have the gene but if you carry the gene your chances are much greater.   It may seem like a waste of money/time but if you were lucky enough to never have cancer it's not a waste.   Had I known about this test years ago I would have jumped at the chance.  Now I have Stage 3 cancer.  went through a double mastectomy, 4 months of chemo every week, and 36 rounds of radiation.  Trust me that's not fun, and now praying every day it doesn't spread because it it does, it becomes Stage 4.

Thank you.  That answers my question.  If you are lucky enough to have insurance and be able to have tests then you are a step ahead of a lot of people.  A lot of people have to just pray they stay healthy because they can't afford to go to the doctor.  And def cant afford any tests.  That stuff is expensive.  Even something as simple as going to the eye doctor will run you close to $1000 if you need contacts and glasses. 

The only person in my family to have had cancer smoked like a freight train for 50 years and THAT is why she has cancer. 

Youíre welcome.  I agree, Iím very lucky I have good insurance from my job, but without the insurance I couldnít afford many tests.  I think itís a shame the cost of medical/dental/prescriptions.  Thatís why many people canít get the help they need or the medications they have to take and something should be done, one of the riches countries and thousands of Americans are suffering.

sfreeman8 said it the best -  I also read online she has spent more money in the relatively short time she has been in the royal family than anyone else.  Gold digger and is bringing him down -hey just my opinion. :moneymouth:

I agree 100%. I think Harry is making a huge mistake and one day will regret it.  Iím wondering if in time they will take his title away and his income from being Ďroyalí. I think heís a fool.
