2:54 am
jillibus

Oh? She didn't like it? Well, maybe she was expecting a toy.

good. My cousin just had me in tears. he is such a sweet kid. he is going to right a song for his Grandad, his hero (his Grandad was my Uncle)
4:34 am
Brookie

Aah, both hands free now.
4:34 am
Brookie

How are you doing?
4:35 am
Brookie

Aw, that's so sweet!
4:35 am
Brookie

How old is he?
4:36 am
herinfernallady

He is 18
4:36 am
herinfernallady

am good. Just getting ready for bed
4:37 am
Brookie

Sorry I asked twice... our messages got crossed. Hope you have a good night!
4:37 am
herinfernallady

I thought I would watch this and er and then bed
4:38 am
Brookie

How, ER is still on the air? (I don't have a working TV so I'm out of the loop.)
4:39 am
herinfernallady

Ok I stuffed my gramatics up. I will play this grid and watch tv. No Er finished. But we are still on season 14
4:40 am
Brookie

Gotcha. It's 5:45 a.m. and both my children are up and playing with toys... which reminds me, I need to check my older one's homework!
4:40 am
herinfernallady

HOmework???
4:42 am
Brookie

He's 7 years old. I'm now checking his math. He has to calculate perimeters.
4:42 am
herinfernallady

erk. Math sucks
4:42 am
Brookie

Especially when my son doesn't believe me that a perimeter can't be an odd number, such as what's happening now.
4:50 am
Atalante

a perimeter of a what?
4:50 am
herinfernallady

Don't look at me i ahve no idea about maths. Hi Ata
4:51 am
Atalante

and hi :) hi herin!
4:52 am
Brookie

of rectangles... i should have clarified. Yes, a shape with an odd number of sides can have an odd perimeter number
4:52 am
Brookie

and hi ata!
4:52 am
Brookie

i'm an oddball who likes math... but ended up a french major
4:53 am
Atalante

that makes more sense :D
4:53 am
Atalante

or 4 sides with different lengths
4:53 am
herinfernallady

I have been looking at these products something that you mentioned in your profile Ata
4:53 am
herinfernallady

Brook simple way of saying it is if it had 3 sides what would it be?
4:53 am
Atalante

it's early enough in the morning here brookie that I wasn't sure whether my brai was going very very wrong or not :)
4:54 am
Brookie

true, ata, i was thinking of shapes with the same length sides
4:54 am
Brookie

triangle
4:54 am
Brookie

my brain is never fully functioning, regardless of the time
4:55 am
Atalante

nor mine usually with maths. especially when you look at a statement and just think hang on, that's wrong. isn't it? or is it? and start doubting your entire maths ability (which isn't much to start with) LOL :D
4:57 am
Brookie

I'm also now administering a spelling test for my son. The words he's learning (like "definitely" and "persuasive") are words that most American grown-ups can't spell!
4:57 am
Atalante

wow! that's impressive!
4:57 am
Brookie

Of course, I'm happy he's learning them now...
4:58 am
Brookie

is herin still there?
5:00 am
Atalante

good question
5:00 am
Brookie

Ata, I looked at your profile. I didn't realize there are Babbler teams?
5:01 am
Atalante

for the folding thing yep
5:02 am
herinfernallady

Yes i am sorry
5:02 am
herinfernallady

No Ata the thing about sanitary pads for women
5:02 am
herinfernallady

No Ata the thing about sanitary pads for women
5:03 am
Brookie

gotta change a diaper... brb
5:03 am
Atalante

you can still see that? how bizarre. I changed it to help crossy. but yeah ... that still just shocks me
5:04 am
herinfernallady

No its not there.
5:04 am
Atalante

I should rewrite it and add it back
5:04 am
herinfernallady

There is a company that makes reuseable products and they also make donation
5:05 am
Atalante

oh good for them!
5:05 am
Atalante

I just can't imagine ...
5:06 am
herinfernallady

the company is called New Moon pads I found them via a baby website. Research for a friend
5:07 am
Atalante

will check em out!
5:07 am
herinfernallady

I think its a wonderful idea.
5:08 am
Atalante

sorry brookie, this was something else I alsways had in my profile about a charity providing basic sanitary wear for women in Zimbabwe who couldn't afford to buy any
5:09 am
Atalante

with the price of the product maintained deliberately too high for most women to afford them
5:09 am
herinfernallady

They had boob pads and since my friend is having a baby I was looking at the price
5:10 am
herinfernallady

I know that Coles doesn't have GST on feminine hygiene products as it really is a double tax.
5:11 am
Atalante

there, I at least put a link back up, I'll find the blurb I wrote and add it back up when I can
5:14 am
herinfernallady

Is that Hobbit boinging in the snow?
5:15 am
Atalante

yes :D
5:16 am
Atalante

I took a few more today, I'll change it when I download them
5:17 am
herinfernallady

very cute booooooing
5:18 am
Atalante

she's very good at boinging!
5:20 am
herinfernallady

I think she looks adorable. I can't believe how cold it is for you lot

5:29 am
herinfernallady

yer well
5:34 am
herinfernallady

question
5:36 am
Atalante

yes??
5:38 am
herinfernallady

Would it be wrong of me to send a letter to the Department of Ed about a girl that is now a teacher that nearly broke my jaw in highschool?
5:41 am
Atalante

she obviously didn't get prosecuted etc about it?
5:41 am
SamanthaJoy

Doesn't seem so much "wrong" as "pointless"--hi herin
5:42 am
herinfernallady

no unfortunatly
5:42 am
herinfernallady

but it is disturbing that a person like that is a teacher
5:45 am
Atalante

it is, but they won't do anything based on an old incident that could be entirely justified for all they know (obviously it wasn't, but they don't know what happened)
5:46 am
crosshair


i agree,it would be pointless,kind of like me ratting on a guy who beat me up in 3rd grade who now just happens to be in a government position lol
5:47 am

lol jmc. We have had these cats since about 4 weeks old and they have never eaten anything but Hills. They will not eat anything - chicken, fish, anything - except Hills. However, I have some emergency cat food and if they are hungry they will eat it. The only other thing they eat is mice, but I draw the line at going out and catching mice for them.

10:48 am
redturtlehead

Well, My icon is a clue then.
10:48 am
dcseain

love your icon, science :D
10:50 am
dcseain

huh. Argentina has a bumper corn crop, with an extra 1.5 million tons for export
10:50 am
sciencegeek

ty dc always makes me luahg since i am a teacher and a biker
10:50 am
redturtlehead

Perhaps they could send some to Africa.
10:51 am
dcseain

hopefully, red
10:51 am
redturtlehead

How goes your Job situation DC?
10:51 am
dcseain

esstset, not esset for the German double-s, yes?
10:52 am
dcseain

i have someone trying to place me for 3-11 at a low rate. :/
10:52 am
Angelsong

hi
10:52 am
dcseain

i'll have to see how it comares to unemployment.
10:52 am
dcseain

hi, angel
10:52 am
redturtlehead

low rate is not nice. COnsidering your experience. But if it has nice benefits or something...
10:53 am
dcseain

yes, esp with 3-11 shift
10:54 am
sciencegeek

my nurse friend says 3-11 is not a bad shift.
10:54 am
redturtlehead

yes true. I admit though I think 3-11 is a pretty nice shift. you sleep at night, and have some day hours too.
10:54 am
redturtlehead

3-11 for nurses is pretty rare these days Sicence! most of us are stuck on the 12's But I love having 4 days a week off..
10:54 am
dcseain

though it eliminates weekday social time
10:55 am
redturtlehead

true if its each day. I forget that would be 5 days a week...
10:55 am
sciencegeek

4 days off would be great. NPR did a whole thing on nursing yesterday - pay is good from what i heard = makes me want to go back to school for an RN
10:56 am
redturtlehead

Pay is very middle class income. I think Science it is about the same as my sister makes as a Teacher. maybea bit more, or a bit less.
10:56 am
dcseain

Tom works 4 days in 10
10:56 am
sciencegeek

need the me 5/12 and 6/21 please
10:56 am
redturtlehead

Vacation time is a pain though. I have worked so many holidays and during bad weather you are always having to work when everyone else is off for it.
10:57 am
dcseain

BSN RN earns less than a MA Teacher here
10:57 am
sciencegeek

nm got them
10:57 am
redturtlehead

The BSN really means so little. But, I think it does help in the long run.
10:57 am
sciencegeek

well i teach high school - no masters - a bs and a ba with teaching cert hours
10:57 am
redturtlehead

And people do do all sort of gross things to you.
10:58 am
dcseain

Tom's BSN got him a 10% pay increase
10:58 am
redturtlehead

I am sure Tom has some stories.
10:58 am
dcseain

not leat in getting the degree awarded 7 years after he completed it :)
10:58 am
sciencegeek

well i guess i meant a bsn! sure a lot of my pre med hours would transfer into that
10:58 am
redturtlehead

Thats the hospital decision, some offer a bonus, but most really don't care. I recall TOm works for a pretty nice system there.
10:59 am
dcseain

Inova, yes
10:59 am
redturtlehead

Well, Science, the thing is BSN or AAS degree you all have to pass the Boards. Otherwise you can't work.
11:00 am
sciencegeek

of course, but i am sure i could manage the boards with some prep
11:00 am
redturtlehead

The prep would be going back to school. The boards in my opinion are pretty simple.
11:01 am
sciencegeek

i love being a student
11:02 am
redturtlehead

Well, I would recommend doing nurse aide work, before you commit to school, if you can tolerate it you can tolerate nursing. there is some statistic that almost half if not more nurses leave the professionentirely after 5 years.
11:02 am
jmcnrick

hi red and dc
11:03 am
dcseain

hi, jmc
11:03 am
redturtlehead

hi jmc.
11:03 am
sciencegeek

why is that? that is also the stats for teaching
11:03 am
oodleberry

hi everyone
11:03 am
sciencegeek

hey oods
11:03 am
dcseain

teaching, one is not wiping excrement from people and stenting blood
11:03 am
dcseain

hi, oodle
11:04 am
redturtlehead

The pay is not that good. Each day we are exposed to diseases that may kill us, people curse at us, pee on us, vomit on us, on occasion they hit us and punch us.
11:04 am
sciencegeek

that was the down side on the NPR story
11:05 am
redturtlehead

Hi Oodle.
11:05 am
oodleberry

where on earth do you work red
11:05 am
Atalante

but there's not only hospital nursing
11:05 am
redturtlehead

oodle I am an Emergency Department nurse.
11:06 am
Atalante

and hi :)
11:06 am
sciencegeek

well er can be a trip
11:06 am
dcseain

hi, ata
11:06 am
oodleberry

well you need another profession. this is NOT acceptable!!ΒΈ
11:06 am
redturtlehead

I can not imagine doing what the floor people do all day though I would rapidly find a new job.
11:06 am
jmcnrick

a lot of lawyers drop out too
11:06 am
redturtlehead

Oodle, I am quite happy with my profession.
11:07 am
jmcnrick

I think a lot of people pick jobs based on TV and are shocked by the reality
11:07 am
sciencegeek

Red, do you work for a county hospital or private?
11:07 am
oodleberry

oh ok, well if you are happy...
11:07 am
redturtlehead

Private, it makes no difference Science.
11:07 am
sciencegeek

jmc quite right
11:07 am
dcseain

we don't have county hospitals here in VA. They do in parts of MD though.
11:07 am
redturtlehead

JMC, I think you are right. Tons of kids in the ER tell me they want to be "crime scene investigators" lately...
11:08 am
sciencegeek

Red- just from experience, i thought county er was harder because you get all the gun shot wounds and the auto accidents
11:08 am
sciencegeek

trauma center stuff
11:08 am
redturtlehead

Trauma Centers get the Trauma Center stuff. Private or Public. But with the EMTALA laws we have to treat whatever comes in the doors, patients are no longer shuttled to another hospital.
11:10 am
sciencegeek

in houston it appears that most of the trauma cases go to one or two hospitals that are full trauma er's.
11:10 am
jmcnrick

if i were shot in houston i would want to go to ben taub
11:10 am
Atalante

but there's also nursing work in dr surgeries / community nursing and stuff?
11:11 am
redturtlehead

Thats how it is supposed to work Science, there is a trauma system. Trauma centers have Surgeons in the building and an OR that is staffed all hours.
11:11 am
sciencegeek

me too jmc!
11:11 am
oodleberry

ok I only have 223 more words to go whooooohooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
11:11 am
redturtlehead

Yes Ata, but the pay for those jobs is a lot less than for Hospital stuff.
11:11 am
sciencegeek

or if you are in a bad car wreck
11:11 am
redturtlehead

I hope I never get shot!!! or in a bad wreck...
11:12 am
Atalante

but it's still a nursing option if you don't want sooo much puke and wee ;P
11:12 am
redturtlehead

But yes, there are levels in the US, Level one and two trauma centers, are the biggies, Level 3,4,5 are places that trauma should not go.
11:12 am
oodleberry

bbl
11:13 am
redturtlehead

Not if I want to pay my bills Ata!!! I mean the pay is really less, and there aren't that many jobs. Most MD offices hire Medical Assistants, and or the LPN's.
11:13 am
sciencegeek

31 left .....d, r, t, s

Anyway...

that sucks. it's certainly an option over here!
11:13 am
redturtlehead

Science, when you do the grid do you systematically do each letter?
11:14 am
jmcnrick

me either especially in Houston! lol
11:14 am
redturtlehead

I gotta admit though, i like my job. I like working with patients. And I like the occasional adrenalin...
11:14 am
sciencegeek

well, red, sometimes, first i get all i can readily see, then i poke around randomly, then my OCD kicks in and I list and go through each letter (not necessarily in alpha order) LOL
11:15 am
dcseain

i do random until i stall, then work from Z to A
11:15 am
redturtlehead

I pretty much get all I can then list and go from a-z with list. I was just curious... Everyone has a system it seems. some people start from the top corner...
11:15 am
jmcnrick

that is my method except for the OCD part
11:15 am
sciencegeek

well, takes one to know one, jmc
11:15 am
Atalante

I just do it randomly
11:15 am
jmcnrick

i try for easy ones then nbt
11:18 am

On occasion I have tried Z-A but I dont like it.

i've heard that from a few people, krysten.
1:10 pm
Atalante

I thought it was amazing
1:11 pm
Krysten

The story concept was good as was the underlying message but overal, it was so bad. My husband and I wanted our money back and we didn't even pay for it!
1:11 pm
dcseain

there's random ice around from the snow 3 weeks ago, and we're to get more tonight.
1:11 pm
Krysten

*overall
1:12 pm
lynxxx

I have just remembered what District 9 is, I really want to see that too. My Jess saw it twice and was rapt and another SF friend saw it too and was impressed
1:13 pm
Krysten

I guess for me, some of it was the "let down" of another "shaky camera syndrome" movie. After Cloverfield and Quarantine (not to mention Blair Witch), it's just too much.
1:14 pm
Atalante

well I didn't see Blair Witch or Quarantine or Cloverfield :0

you know barista isn't peculiar to Starbuck's Red, it is in general usage here. Italian in origin
1:56 pm
redturtlehead

I think the first it was introduced was at Starbucks in the US.... you know, un uncultured Americans!!!
1:58 pm
Atalante

starbucks -> common usage
1:58 pm

Hawkins

I just looked it up, and it is Italian in origin
2:02 pm
Atalante

horrid stuff!
2:03 pm
bojazz

my son-in-law sells Italian coffee (Bella Latte) - certainly equal to Starbucks
2:03 pm
torgone

Starbuck's uses the term because it adds to the snob appeal for the posers they rely on to buy their crappy, overpriced coffee .. imho ..

I thought that all Christians who were not Catholic were considered Protestant.
3:20 pm
Vicuna

I think it depends whether you define Protestantism by its theology, by its history, by its not-Catholocism, or what.
3:20 pm
jmcnrick

pooh I disagree with Bill Samuels about a lot of things
3:20 pm
redturtlehead

But these days, if you look at some Quaker sites it states you can be a Quaker and Not be a Christian. which I find a little ridiculous.
3:20 pm
jmcnrick

no, actually some Anabaptist are quite clear they are not protestants
3:21 pm
Atalante

baptists, methodists, definitely not protestants
3:21 pm
hego

I guess they mean philosophically.
3:21 pm
hego

the Quakers, Imean
3:21 pm
jmcnrick

I have no problem with not being a Christian and being a Quaker -- I kinda draw the line at not believing God in some form
3:22 pm
jmcnrick

well that's silly because methodists are low church CoE
3:22 pm
Vicuna

Amen, jmc! But of course there are those who would argue that, too.... sigh.
3:22 pm
redturtlehead

I find it a bit odd.
3:22 pm
redturtlehead

But then again, Quakers always must be doing something they feel is progressive.
3:22 pm
Vicuna

Well, we are a pEculiar People, redturtle! lol
3:23 pm
Vicuna

Peculiar
3:23 pm
hego

I don't know, jmc. Spend years in my business watching people suffer and die and it becomes difficult to believe in a benign, loving god
3:23 pm
redturtlehead

Vicuna, I don't really think of Quakers as Peculiar people. I'm one, and I am not peculiar.
3:23 pm
Atalante

do Quakers not believe that Jesus is a saviour then?
3:24 pm
jmcnrick

many do and many don't ata
3:24 pm
jmcnrick

the Quakers in England mostly do
3:24 pm
redturtlehead

Ata, I had always been taught growing up that Quakerism is a type of Christianity. However, I was doing an interview with a friend for her religions class, and some web sites now say that it is not that way.
3:24 pm
Atalante

how complicated!
3:24 pm
Vicuna

There is no lump "Quakers believe" of almost anything, Ata. Some definitely do, some definitely don't. Many believe in the teachings of the historical Jesus, without the Personal savior aspects.
3:24 pm
hego

I'm a dirty papist and I don't think Quakers are peculiar.
3:24 pm
redturtlehead

I find it a bit complicated Ata. I sort of stick to what I was taught in school.
3:25 pm
jmcnrick

well we are offended that you don't think we are peculiar!
3:25 pm
Vicuna

Then we must be doing something wrong, hego! Though can you be a papist without believing in God? Or only a dirty one? =P
3:25 pm
Atalante

you can not believe in God, just believe in Jesus and Mary and the Pope :P
3:26 pm
hego

I didn't say I'm a non believer, I just said it's difficult.
3:26 pm
redturtlehead

One of the reasons I stopped going to some meetings for Worship was that people tended to want to "be led by God" to discuss the situation in Iraq for an hour.
3:26 pm
Vicuna

Ah, an important distinction, hego, and one worth serious respect.
3:26 pm
jmcnrick

there are three primary (and several minor) branches of Friends. Two of the primary branches believe that Jesus is Christ and one of them doesn't really care one way or the other.
3:27 pm
redturtlehead

I guess I went to school at the Jesus CHrist branch. Ha!
3:27 pm
Vicuna

That's too bad, redturtle. I also dislike meetings that are too political.
3:27 pm
jmcnrick

wht and I are on the general board of one of the Christian branch
3:27 pm
Atalante

so what does the third branch think Jesus is?
3:27 pm
hego

LOL Red
3:27 pm
redturtlehead

I mean it's one thing to really be led to say something about current situations...but....
3:27 pm
jmcnrick

what school red and I can tell which one it is connected to.
3:27 pm
Vicuna

WHat branch, jmc?
3:27 pm
hego

I like the open minded attitude of Qualers.
3:27 pm
redturtlehead

In Orlando they have a good solution. they have meeting for worship and right after "Meeting for learning"
3:28 pm
redturtlehead

I went to Westtown. We do the silent silent meeting.
3:28 pm
jmcnrick

well the FGC (Friends General Conference) accept people regardless of whether they believe in the divinity of Jesus
3:28 pm
Vicuna

Are you on the board of FGC, jmc?
3:28 pm
hego

see open minded
3:29 pm
Atalante

and how do Shakers fit into Quakers? Or don't they?
3:29 pm
Vicuna

(Oh, not if you said it was the Christian branch you were on.)
3:29 pm
Enomis65

good afternoon, how is everyone?
3:29 pm
Vicuna

They don't. Mother Ann Lee had some Quaker history, but she invented her own thing.
3:29 pm
hego

Don't ask!
3:29 pm

Hello, Enomis.

Enomis65

oh my God, you guys are really serious and intense... trying to escape a tough grid?...
3:32 pm
jmcnrick

shakers, based on the dreams of Mother Ann Lee, believed in the absolute separation of the sexes and therefore you were never born a Shaker
3:32 pm

3:33 pm
redturtlehead

I want someone to cook me dinner.
3:33 pm

3:33 pm
redturtlehead

and then give me a cream pie!
3:33 pm

Anyone need clues before I go?
3:37 pm
redturtlehead

OMG, a street bonnet. Like ilicit street drugs?
3:37 pm
Atalante

it's really interesting - it's a mix between a modern-day story about a sect of extreme Mormons who practice polygamy and the "diary" of Ann Eliza Young - Brigham Young's 19th wife. It's definitely fiction, but theres a lot of fact in there too. It's quite fascinating
3:37 pm
hego

Anyway,yw car.
3:37 pm

Oh, is that what we're doing now? There are both Mormon and Wiccan babblers, I believe. But the real question is whether we have any Shaker Babblers. OR AMish.
3:51 pm
Sally-catlover

Amish don't use computers surely
3:51 pm
Vicuna

Well, that's why it would be quite a coup if we had one.
3:52 pm
Sally-catlover

None of us are that into housework surely.

3:53 pm

A very good clue, red, for a couple of nasty words. I've got 52 left and my brain is hurting so I'll come back later. I've been lurking, as usual. Is anyone getting a snow storm this afternoon except for Lynxx who is basking in 93 degree heat down under. We've gotten about 8 inches of snow in Chicago area.
5:16 pm
redturtlehead

thank you babbz, but it only works if you had one of those climibing roses and a thing on the side of the house growing up!
5:16 pm

2 thoughts -
6:34 pm
kje

1st - many viruses can cause a cough that persists for weeks after you otherwise feel fine
6:34 pm
herinfernallady

and wait to hear wether my friend has had her baby yet.
6:34 pm
kje

2nd - make sure you are not on a medicine that can cause it
6:35 pm
kje

wow, she still hasn't had it yet, herin?!?
6:35 pm
redturtlehead

yes, I think thats it. because I'm not on any meds, my problem is I cant sleep because of the cough...I am ok if I sit up...
6:35 pm
redturtlehead

I am going to take a tessalon.
6:35 pm
bojazz

kje - your icon looks delicious!!
6:35 pm
kje

thanks bo
6:36 pm
kje

red - ask your MD for codeine if the tessalon isn't working - only clinically proven cough suppressant - skip the rest of the crap and take codeine 30mg PO qHS at least so you can sleep
6:37 pm
redturtlehead

Ohhhh no, Codeine makes me projectile vomit. I'll cough first. tessalon I think makes me sleepy.

8:27 pm
lbdawger

8:28 pm
rururocks

No Swine before its time
8:28 pm

8:31 pm
lbdawger

STIDDY!! how's the tum? how was practicum?
8:32 pm
stidmama

tummy is good. (and very full) practicum was FUN!!!!
8:33 pm
stidmama

actually, I thought I was supposed to be there at 7 this morning, so showed up a couple minutes before that... but wasn't supposed to be there until 7:30! LOL next week I will sleep in an extra hour or so.
8:33 pm
featherbee

hi stid!
8:33 pm
stidmama

I always aim for a half hour early on my first day anywhere until I know how traffic really flows.
8:33 pm
stidmama

hey feather!
8:33 pm
lbdawger

a little anxious, stid? lol
8:34 pm
stidmama

anyway, will be there every thursday for the rest of the year, and really looking forward to it. I am worried, though, about the actual reading for this quarter. There seems to be an awful lot of it.
8:35 pm
stidmama

yes, I was very nervous! LOL but it was good. today was "just observing
'
8:35 pm
lbdawger

you'll do fine with the practicum and all the reading.
8:35 pm
stidmama

so I got to sit quietly in a corner all day long. 5 8th grade language arts lessons... fascinating to watch her adjust the same material from class to class.
8:36 pm
lbdawger

how long has she been teaching?
8:36 pm
JBV

[tuning in to chat on language arts lesson] hi stid!
8:36 pm
stidmama

several years. she is not as old as me (but close) but this is her second career.
8:36 pm
lbdawger

hi jbv
8:36 pm
stidmama

hey JBV! ((hugs))
8:37 pm
JBV

hi lbd!
8:37 pm
stidmama

looks like we scared off feather with our school talk!
8:37 pm
lbdawger

what did she do before?
8:37 pm
stidmama

i
8:37 pm
JBV

what are they reading?
8:37 pm
stidmama

I can't remember. It was something with literacy, but not as a certificated teacher I am pretty sure.
8:37 pm
rururocks

back.. sorry ... what did I miss?
8:38 pm
stidmama

everyone was reading something different in the class today, (silent sustained readings of choice)
8:38 pm
stidmama

I read John Dewey for the first time this week, though. It was interesting. And not nearly as hard to get through as everyone had said it would be.
8:39 pm
featherbee

oh, no, i'm just being distracted by shiny things on other pages
8:39 pm
stidmama

ooooh shiny things! *bounce bounce*
8:39 pm
lbdawger

silent sustained reading...wow, i'd love that class!
8:39 pm
JBV

John Dewey's genius was simple common sense - but it is still a rare commodity in education - and I am not part of the Dewey cult of disciples
8:40 pm
stidmama

actually I have to finish reading a really cool book by Elizabeth Cohen. "Designing GRoupwork" it's REALLY awesome.,
8:40 pm
featherbee

LMAO, specifically, about the color status thing on facebook, and how it's been figured out, which makes your bounce bounce especially funny!
8:40 pm
stidmama

color status? what is going on with facebook -- back in school mode I dare not go there!
8:41 pm
featherbee

it's a secwet! mostly to torture guys. not sure if i can let the cat out of the bag yet or not!
8:41 pm
stidmama

yes, that was what struck me about Dewey -- the basic honesty of his approach. I love the "pragmatism" in his philosophy. "If it doesn't work, it's not a good idea" sort of thing.
8:41 pm
stidmama

hoping that "pink" equates with "bounce bounce" then!
8:42 pm
stidmama

I find the methodology workshops WAY more interesting than strict philosophy or history!
8:43 pm
tijani

do5/16 please
8:43 pm
lbdawger

yes, methods are at least applicable. theory is just thoughts that may or may not work
8:43 pm
stidmama

do + "wanting word" or japanese money unit
8:43 pm
lbdawger

do + japanese money
8:43 pm
featherbee

you probably have a message about it from fran in your inbox. i don't recall much of dewey specifically. man, it's been a while.
8:44 pm
tijani

thanx
8:45 pm
stidmama

one of the things in this book that he said (over and over) was that teachers who really want to help students can't simply plan a lesson and then stand back and watch it come to life. They need to stay involved -- and in planning the lesson they need to take into account the student's prior experience as well as how that learning will be used and maintained in the future. HEAVY stuff. But important.
8:46 pm
lbdawger

boy that's true of any learning experience!
8:46 pm
featherbee

yup
8:46 pm
JBV

that's the hardest thing to learn, stid, it comes with experience, but some people have a gift - i mean the ability to go with the dynamic nature of the classroom, adapt to changing conditions, react to things on the spot, etc.
8:47 pm
JBV

really, it's a people skill- being able to "read" students
8:47 pm
stidmama

My question is, obviously we go into teaching because we DO care about children, and about their futures. AT what point do we then step back and not get too emotionally involved? The students who won't try for whatever reason, and the students who get into trouble.
8:47 pm
JBV

I say this on the basis of about 20 years of supervising teachers and seeing lots of the good, the bad and somewhat ugly
8:47 pm
stidmama

that's a good point JBV.
8:47 pm
featherbee

the latest push in our schools has been poverty and learning, and how there are hidden "rules" to middle class, which most teachers are, and poverty, which a lot of students can be, and how there are different expectations and rules for each
8:48 pm
stidmama

yes, we are talking about those "cultural encapsulation" things in our program right now feather!
8:48 pm
featherbee

i don't think you do step back stid. there's always an involvement with trying to reach those kids.
8:48 pm
JBV

an example of how methodology emerges from theory - that comes from ethnography of literacy
8:49 pm
featherbee

the better teachers are the ones who ARE involved
8:49 pm
stidmama

I hope that I will be able to be flexible in the classroom -- I know I can do it with single students, but 145 like my practicum teacher? yikes!
8:49 pm
lbdawger

you try to let the kids know you care, but you also have to try not to take them home with you, stid. It's a hard line to draw.
8:49 pm
JBV

and the kids know how to tell who cares
8:49 pm
featherbee

well not all 145 at once!
8:50 pm
stidmama

after years of hearing how teachers have to be careful to not hug or touch or... today I was very pleased to see this teacher high-five many, hug a few, and say "I love you" to a couple as well. They responded really well to that.
8:50 pm
stidmama

ah, here is the "frozen iguana" story on the ne4. apparently they are dropping out of the trees in florida!
8:51 pm
lbdawger

she obviously knows her kids well. you'll learn to be able to read them, as well as what their family situations are from parent teacher conferences.
8:51 pm
stidmama

I am glad I am in the Pac NW where it is "balmy" at around 43 F right now.
8:51 pm
featherbee

oh geeze, i got at the minimum 3 hugs today. of course, kindergarten may be different. i never (well, rarely....depends on the kid) but often recieve!
8:52 pm
featherbee

was meant to be i never initiate. oops.
8:52 pm
lbdawger

43!! i'm at minus2!
8:52 pm
stidmama

yes, the younger kids are spontaneous huggers! the older ones a little more reticent (though one kid I tutored last year gave me a HUGE hug when I gave him a book for summer reading)
8:52 pm
stidmama

well come visit, LBD! Lucky would be pleased to share his sheepskin bed!
8:52 pm
featherbee

awwww
8:53 pm
lbdawger

i'd love to share lucky's bed!
8:53 pm
stidmama

oh! wonderful! I
'
8:53 pm
stidmama

I'll have Lucky make sure he puts his extra to 4 away so there's room! LOL
8:53 pm
lbdawger

8th graders...not quite secure in who they are yet, but starting to get the feeling that teachers aren't cool.
8:54 pm
featherbee

heading off to bed, nice chatting!
8:54 pm
lbdawger

also hormonal adjustments...gawd, i loved junior high kids. they were so much fun to watch...and laugh at!
8:54 pm
stidmama

feather, it was lovely to see you! kisses to the boys, and hugs to you!
8:55 pm
JBV

bye feather
8:55 pm
lbdawger

night night, feather! sweet dreams
8:55 pm
stidmama

yes, they are very insecure (and quite awkward even when they are). Rather like watching lambs or colts try to figure out where their feet are relative to the shoulder
8:56 pm
lbdawger

yup, awkward! definitely describes that age group.
8:56 pm
stidmama

well.... *sigh* I have 56 words to find, but a short paper to write when I am done reading this Cohen book. ((((((Hugs everyone)))))) thanks for the chatter and the support!
8:56 pm
stidmama

I'll be back as soon as my "work" is done. *poof*
8:57 pm
