I remember a commercial where Big Brother (BB) is taunting Little Brother (LB). BB is in the shower and LB flushes the toilet in revenge. We watched a cartoon where Deputy Dog was flying a helicopter and the bad guy handed him a pair of head phones with an ice pike in each ear piece. The problem with the props is that they are common household things. What child in the Midwest does not own a pair of winter ear muffies? And how easy is it to find a toy screw driver or pointed lego to put in the ear muffies? They can easily assemble a pair within minutes! You have to reason a lot of these things out for kids.....and Home Alone was a major event in our house! The bottom line is, if you don't have time to watch TV with kids then they should not be watching it without you. I am a firm believer that TV is not a babysitter. I remember watching a talk show where a parent was being interviewed in regard to her child's death. He had hung himself by a piece of rope or clothing from the top of the door or his bunk bed. He and his brother had just seen it on TV. It was funny and they decided to do it. Their mother was in a nearby room folding laundry.

You apparently have a thick shower curtain around your tub and now all you need is a bathroom fan. Spend time with your kids, after all, it's a temporary job. How will they learn to handle all the big stuff?
uuuuuuh, I am sorry if it sounded like I was livid with my child. I actually wrote it while laughing about it. It was an accident, not a scheming planned out attempt to burn me. It's just funny, well afterwards, how kids keep our lives interesting at the least expected moments!!!

An anagram of Fascist?

Went to the Doctor yesterday and she diagnosed " Plantar Fasciitis"

An extraordinary name for something that afflicts a very small part of the body.
Plantar fasciitis - MayoClinic.com

Any Latin scholars out there who know what the words mean?

Be assured ( if anyone has this) the exercises really do help.

You might want to consult Superman about heel problems since that was the only part of his body which could be penetrated. I wonder what prompted the author to make his heel vulnerable? Maybe Plantar Fasciitis.

Plantar Fasciitis.....my son pulled all the "stuff" (nerves, muscle...etc) from his heel upwards when he was in an athletic stance on the football field a few years ago. It was extremely painful for him. I call them "ice bag" injuries. Ice it...Ice it...Ice it. He had to soak his foot in a tub of water & ice. He said the ice water felt good. That must have been some cruel pain.

I read your MayoClinic but it did not say anything about treatment for these heel afflictions. Did the doctor recommend anything?

Plantar Fasciitis: A sheet or band of fibrous connective tissue enveloping, separating, or binding together muscles, and other soft structures of the heel.

Yes SB. She gave me exercises to do and they do seem to help. Getting up in the morning is the most painful bit! especially for someone who actually likes getting up Once I've statred walking around it's not so bad.

Thing is luvs, I'm not at all sure I want to be cured. No wonder I'm a 'tubby rounder!'
