1.  What's the first news or event oI historical significance that you have a memory of?

2.  Describe the first item of clothing you remember picking out and buying for yourself.

3.  Do you remember your first post on I-Village/ParentSoup/ParentsPlace?  What was it about?

4.  Which former poster here do you miss the most?

5.  Bonus:  Do you have an all-time favorite post that you still laugh about?  What was it?

Elvis Presley's death, He died the Summer of some year in the 1970s and I remember my sister and I coming home from the pool and it being all over the news.  Not clothing but a funky pair of sandals I bought for myself when Saks Fifth Ave opened in downtown Cincinnati.  I used to post a lot on the SAHM board, early 2000s, I don't remember my first post tho.  I miss Ikat, tm, jorvia and finally.me.  Lots of memories, posts that stand out are probably church and shopping habits, Lol.

Speaking of police, a 4 year old getting her own self up and ready for the day, getting herself to school while mom sleeps away stands out as that one bordered neglect to me...

I liked sabinamarianne too, And the teacher that lived in Connecticut I think who had a disabled daughter.  I loved reading her bits about school and special ed.

You're thinking of Eileen. I "see" her every once in awhile on another site. I'll tell her you remembered her fondly.

I think there are a number of people who can't wrap their head around the concept of working for more than pay.

"I think there are a number of people who can't wrap their head around the concept of working for more than pay." I think my daughter is going to have the opposite trouble. She just wrapped up a summer-long internship with an organization that serves the homeless. It was a lot of fun, because she got to cook, write articles and redesign the newsletter, choose clothing for people going to interviews, and just chat with people from every possible background.

It was a great job for the summer before college, but she's in for a rude awakening next summer when she has to work for actual money!

DD1 was filling out a questionaire a couple of weeks ago and towards the bottom was what her dream job or goal was, she wrote that she wants to advocate for those less fortunate and for kids bullied.  This is my kid who went from horse person to veternarian to what looks like now social work, I hope she finds internship like that, paid or not.
