Seems like there are a lot of new posters, introductions?.....

-what does your poster name mean?

-what is your favorite room in your house?

-what is your favorite sandwich?

I don't remember the lasagne debate, but I remember the meatball and spaghetti sauce, There's the missal and the still debated, private school vs public krapola, Lol.

Yes, I have seen those for girls but not the larger totes.

I remember the lasagna one, the whole it doesn't take long to make one from scratch and real Italian cooks don't use a recipe...of course when asked, one couldn't provide the one they use, lol.  The meatballs who were slow, then quickly made a few months later was really funny too.  I don't remember the missal one or really the private versus public school either since there are good and bad of both.  It would seem silly to make general comments across the board in regards to public and private schools.

Actually, I have never seen any public school vs private school DEBATE, Just every once in awhile some people needle or harass people for using private schools. Why, I haven't a clue.

There is a very, very select market for VB around here.  I'm going to try not to ruffle feathers by calling the group by its locally-known name, but the market is basically comprised of women who have lived in bedroom communities since before they were bedroom communities (or even communities at all) and wear too-tight sweatpants to WalMart while their husbands are out at the races or shooting (hopefully just) deer.

That is what I remember too and really there are really good private and public schools, really bad private and public school and lots in the middle.  I don't know why there is such an issue here with people who send their kids to private schools, I don't have an issue with public or private in general.

I am going to save myself the time of replying to this, and just copy and paste.

Because test rats aren't offnesive to those whose kids aren't in the schools..  But it's nice to read one kid is back, Seriously. 

Edited for spelling correction, Also ato add the conviction that school success really isn't about the school but the kid..  Have at it!:-)
