In this ever-growing world of technology, people are going to need to learn more than your basic math skills. The business world is getting more complicated, and the employers are expecting their employees to come to them with a good solid education. It’s getting so that it is hard to get even a basic job with only a high school diploma. Largely, I think, because the public schools are not doing their jobs in preparing the children for employment nor to further their education, it’s more like bring them in and get them out as soon as possible for new ones to fill their spots.
Having said that, I think that many schools are trying. My friends have been telling me that their kids have been coming home from school in fourth grade asking them for algebra help on their math homework. Many of my friends have forgotten how to do it, or never learned it in the first place! So there seems to be a growing need for algebra tutoring services. Not every parent is able to help their kids with these kinds of problems! So I think that it’s great that people can access an online algebra tutor and get both algebra 1 and algebra 2 help for free.

My mother-in-law is the type of woman that can and will find a fault with everything and everyone, I can only take her in small doses and I’m so glad that her daughter, my wife, is nothing like her in that respect. My in-laws dropped by today on their way back from seeing a cousin’s vocal performance that was a big to-do for hundreds of kids in the tri state area. Four hours of sitting and listening to various songs and singers with only one short Intermission really was over doing, if you ask me, but of course no one did.
During the entire 4 long and boring hours the elation lighting was blinding my in-laws, and numerous others, for the majority of the lengthy performances and for some reason beyond any of us, my mother-in-law didn’t get up and complain until the entire performance was done and over with. I have to give her credit, because after 15 minutes of a glaring light in face would have sent me right over the edge and out of my seat trying to find someone to take care of the situation.
To make matters worse my in-laws only recognized 4 songs that were song the entire time.
She It just boggles my mind.

One of the things that most gun enthusiasts dread is hearing about how some mentally ill person got hold of some guns and used them inappropriately, injuring other people. Guns are tools that need to be handled with the proper respect, and need to be kept out of the hands of the mentally ill. There is bound to be future discussion about how we can accomplish this, and emotions will be running very high.
Schools are supposed to be safe places for parents to send their children, to learn the skills that they will need to use to have a successful life when they reach adulthood. Nobody in their right mind would violate this sanctity. What happened yesterday in Sandy River School in Connecticut was a terrible, tragic thing. Children are not supposed to be killed at all, for any reason. To be gunned down by a madman, well, that is even more unthinkable. My thoughts and prayers go out to those people who were murdered today, those that were physically wounded, to those that are emotionally traumatized, and to all of their friends and family. I cannot even imagine the grief being felt in Connecticut today.
Some people will use this incident to call for stricter gun control laws. Others will use this tragedy to encourage more people to buy and wear guns. This is going to get ugly.

I just followed orders and typed in “fender squier standard jazz bass music123” and badda boom, badda bing, I found what I was looking for and just in the nick of time. I need everything ready to go no later than September 1st because after that we have the Labor Day holiday and all the kids will be heading back to school and next thing you know it will be winter and after that we will all be bringing in the New Year.
Man time just keeps flying by doesn’t it.

It seems like there are just so many direct tv channels! My grandparents have Direct TV at their house so every time we go there, I will just look through the guide and every channel they have. They actually have a lot of what Direct TV offers, but there are just so many channels! One afternoon, my family and I went to my grandparents’ house after church. I knew right away that meant we would be there the rest of the day. While I was waiting for my grandmother to whip something delicious up for dinner, I just kept channel surfing. I think I spent that entire afternoon doing that. Just watching bits and pieces of different shows, looking at the guide while I watch shows and just taking in as much as I could. Right before dinner, I actually ended up settling on a show on the History channel. It was something about the Civil War. I knew I had a test coming up about the Civil War in school, so I thought the show might help. It was definitely more in depth than what I would have to know for my test. I got so caught up I almost did not hear that dinner was ready.
