i'm hoping that we're beginning down a similar road. my boy got straight a's all year in first grade, got glowing reviews from all of his teachers (several mentioned that he was a very caring and had a good heart) and if he did well on the state testing, he will be eligible to go into the gifted and/or talented school next year.
How wonderfu BT. He is so much like you it's great. I am so proud of both of you. Like father like son.

WooHoo!

My gifted and talented 5-year-old (translated "husband") left for his official first day of work nearly an hour ago. He has about a 55 mile drive. The job won't be full-time until he has gone through up to 6 months of training. Part of the week he will be training (about 75 miles from here) and part of the week he will be working on "live" projects. We are both so excited about his new job!

That's great news, BT! The little guy must be a chip off the old block. The feeling of pride never goes away.

wow, babe, thank you. i'm humbled.

and thanks to selkie, kads, andy and barbara; humbled and thanful. he's my pride and joy.

but like rock, i have to give most of the credit to my wife. she spends far more time with him than i do, so she's both his greatest influence, and the seed of kindness in his heart.


lol, barbara, @ your gifted and talented 5 year old.

he certainly is...

I know I complained about FireFox 5.0 being incompatible with a couple of my favorite add-ons. They are all corrected.

What's new, or at least new to me is the fact that I can now control my tabs so that new searches, etc., appear in their own tab rather than changing the tab I'm on.

This will allow me to look up something and go back to the original posting I'm working on without coming back to find the whole post is blank.

I just right clicked on the tab and selected "Pin as App Tab". So now I have permanent tabs for DC, my TV listings, and weather, they are much smaller, showing only the icon.

I love it!

Today is the day I get my email electric bill and I was really dreading it because I've had to run the a/c a lot this past month. It's only $5 more than last month for a total of $30.xx! Whoopee! I guess now I can afford to let myself be a little more comfortable.
