awesome!!!...parents would have card games with their friends till the wee-hours of the morning..I used to sit on the stairs and listen to them talk about all their "adult" life-stuff...I would fall asleep listening to laughter and good times. Then they taught me..hahaha, would LOVE to have card nights!! Not too many people are pinochle players..guess it is more of a generational thing..

They have my 4th grader doing stuff I didn't learn until 8th grade & I was a year ahead of most & was in the advanced math classes.
Exactly! They skip teaching the basics so kids can't even add, subtract, multiply & divide & then wonder why they can't do the algebra & trig & geometry.
such way & the teacher would check it & say yes.

agreed. My son is in 3rd grade and they just learned their multiplication facts, started division, still practicing adding and subtracting and they're already being introduced to square roots, fractions and decimals! It amazes me. I was also in the higher math classes and he's learning stuff WAY earlier than I ever did. I feel so bad, even though he's doing really well, he sometimes mixes up whether he's adding or multiplying. It's crazy!

Did you all know that is not mandatory for schools to teach cursive writing anymore? That made me SO mad when I found out. Our kids' school does teach it but only during second grade but then they don't really practice it anymore afterwards. What's happening to our schools? Cask me a conspiracy theorist but I think it's a clever scheme to dumb up our society under the guise of advancing them faster to be able to take away more freedoms with few people questioning it. (You all heard that police no longer need search warrents to search vehicles in PA now right? )

I SO desperately want this! We have 4 pallets sitting in the garage. They're not in the best shape but I'm going to see what I can do with them

My son never learned cursive. They don't teach that anymore. He said they sorta went over it when he was young but they didn't have to use it and they always print. I feel bad for when these kids go to college and the professors only write in cursive and these kids won't know what they are writing about and they won't be able to sign their own names.

Heard that...so nice huh?!

Right now there is actually a school district considering removing some Dr .Suess books because some of the stories "promote abuse to animals"...they apparently had a parent call the school and ask that particular book be removed. My daughter was just telling me this today, sorry I can't remember the specific details, I think she said "Hop on Pop" book...yep, hurt my feelings and I will have it all taken away...get real.This is what it is all about now. Glad I have my own slice of heaven that I can hide in till I go...heaven help anyone who trie to make me leave it too!

*I have that pallet canning thing Pinned ....looks cool...would need like a dozen or so of them! hahahaha....

I'm not sure it's about taking away our freedoms (though that does seem to drive other policies), as it is to ensure a populous "working class". Some children have always gotten better educations than others because their parents can afford to send them to private schools. This parental investment of time and/or money, certainly tilts the playing field for those kids, and they up (generally) with far more lucrative careers. The middle class is shrinking as they move either up or down.

There is huge demand for certain skills (computers, engineering, medical) and those graduates start at salaries several times that of a liberal arts major, or someone with no skills. I wish there were good post high training programs in computers that led to tax advantaged appenticeships. It doesn't help that companies have so thoroughly destroyed any sense of loyalty to their employees that all employees have little loyalty back. Those same companies are now forced to pay very high prices to steal talented people from other companies because developing their own talent is too risky, the person they train can easily leave for more pay. Once an individual acquires these skills, they are courted by multiple companies much like college athletes. If our society could figure out how to give a company incentives to train people for these roles, everyone would win (well, maybe not the people with those scarce skills now).

Truer than ever that the rich are getting richer and the poor poorer. As long as that's true, it's a good idea to raise our kids to move into those positions and "get richer".

I'm thinking of getting ducks not sure what kinds. Does anyone have suggestions? Also need a dog box to keep them in? I'm going to go to green Dragon Friday looking?

So far they either hatch like that or a solid yellow.

But if I remember correctly, the mille fleur had mostly yellow as chicks

Wheaten is the classic "yellow down" chick. White birds also of course. I'll have to try to look this up, but I expect MF is also wheaten based, probably with mottled genes and mahogany to darken the buff of wheaten.
I think Mottled is recessive, so all the chicks from the wheaten roo will probably not show any MFpatterns.

Do you have only the wheaten roo, or a MF roo also?

3 roosters, 1 wheaten, 2 MF
5 hens all MF

I can't tell which are males and which are females. I'm located between Harrisburg and York. Where are you? I get a kick out of them when I look into the brooder and all I see is tiny itty bitty fluffballs scurrying about in this large bin.
