Agree on the vinyl...My sister did that with my parents old 8mm movies. It is a hoot to see them. When I see myself as a teenager, with a flat belly and non-sagging skin all I can say is Wow... was I ever good looking or what! But, that would be vanity and that would be wrong. So let's say I looked about normal for the time. They were all pretty good unless the camera was operated by my Mother. She operated a movie camera like a regular camera and only held the button for a second so all you got were tiny little snippets of scenery or action. She also had a tendency to cut off everyone's head. I should look around an see if I can get the VCR tapes put on a DVD. I have the same problem with a big stack of Cassette tapes and a bigger stack of vinyl records. I understand records are coming back in certain circles and that means that turn tables are still being made.
Nah, it's not so much that it's uncomfortable. It's just that I hate it. I HATE getting sweaty for transportation. If I'm going to get all sweaty, I want to be home so I can shower when I'm done. But a couple of minutes on a bike, even going at a moderate speed, I'm sweating and red-faced, and then when I stop, my body temp completely crashes and I can't warm up. I would much rather walk, but my work and DS's school are both too far to walk it. It takes us about an hour and a half to walk. So the bike is a necessary evil.
Because, in a world where it is more than likely both parents work, and the kiddo(s) can't be left home alone, and you have already maxed out your time out of work covering other snow days, you need some time to come up with a plan. This is just one scenario. If you work a job with no time off or sick time, are a single parent, well things get more complicated.Rant: This really irritates me... why don't they just wait and see what happens like they did when I was growing up. More than once they have called off school here and then we don't get the weather predicted. Waste of a day!
I agree that it is frustrating when a school system cancels school on a given evening because of a forecast snow for the next day....then that now canceled day materializes and it doesn't even snow or it is just an inch.Because, in a world where it is more than likely both parents work, and the kiddo(s) can't be left home alone, and you have already maxed out your time out of work covering other snow days, you need some time to come up with a plan.

A book? How exciting! Growing up on a school bus should make for an interesting story.I'm here! Limited interaction due to busy life! I have house guests who are competing in the Arnold Classic and A's FOURTH birthday party this weekend, plus I have a full time foster dog and house projects. So I've been keeping busy.
I sat down to start writing too. Going to write a book or two about my childhood living in a school bus.
But seriously.... A is four. FOUR. I feel like I just had her last year, LOL. Time certainly flies.
Thanks for the input from both you and @ajrwdwgirl . We will give it a go as a book study in April. By then she should be done with her grammar book.Number the Stars is and always has been one of my very favorite books. I think you'll find it very mild for the subject matter. It is such an incredible work of art.
1-3 inches overnight tonight. We had 2 inches last night. 4-8 inches expected Sunday into early Monday!!! Have to drive to Hershey at 6 am tomorrow. This is just nuts.There's already talk of calling off school for the whole day on Monday. Come here little groundhog
