      To me the best way to deal with these school problems is at the local level. If parents yook back oversight and control of the local systems THEY OWN (they seem to forget that) things would settle down. You don’t think twice about letting your dog run freely without supervision but the oarents turn the schools loose and take scant interest in what they’re doing to and with our kids.
      Took us just over two years, lotsa meetings, doing our homework and getting Feds involved, finding a law group that specializes in education-based suits…but we got what our GGS was entitled to because we pushed back. At the same time we still run into parents who complain their kids aren’t getting what they should get, what they’re entitled to, but just ‘don’t have the time’ to do what we did.
      The mess is too big to attack from above, just like politics education is all local.

    People are funny. This morning on Facebook, I made a comment on a “friend’s” post that was mildly critical. The man proceeded to insult me, several times, in his quest to “beat” me and “win”. I commented that I would no longer be commenting on his posts.

    He sent me a very nice private message, saying he recognizes that I am a patriot, and that he values my friendship. [ADD: He actually apologized.] I didn’t answer that message, but I wonder why he didn’t say the same thing in public, while letting previous public insults stand.

    Report: NBC News Behind β€˜Access Hollywood’ Video Leak to Hurt Trump

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2017/02/23/nbc-news-behind-video-leak-to-hurt-trump/

    The β€œAccess Hollywood” tape that nearly derailed Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and got host Billy Bush fired was leaked by the β€œToday” show staff, according to a New York Post report. A source told the paper that the leak was planned by NBC News with the intent to hurt Trump.

    β€œAccess” had been working on airing a sanitized version of the tape, which revealed Trump’s comments but protected Bush by editing out his. But the full tape, which was leaked to the Washington Post, featured Bush goading the president. The leak got Bush fired from β€œToday,” which was, according to the source, part of the plan.

    The Hill, Politico, BuzzFeed, the Daily Mail, the BBC, the LA Times and the New York Daily News also were kept away.

    Well, my computer had the flu and just got it back after ten days or so…..that always seems like such a massive experience even when it’s not.

    So hi again everyone……I’m in a crappy mood today and haven’t been sleeping well and don’t feel good.

    All of the treatment combos and two of the individual chemo-entities I have received/am receiving, while wonderfully successful, are new on the scene (some since 2011 and one since only 2014) so I have also figured out that the aftermath, side-effects are NOT “the same as cousin Tilly experienced in 2005 or 2008. The way this stuff was/is used on Triple Negative breast cancer wasn’t even in view at that time – all new applications/outcomes in the last six years. I’m certainly not complaining – absolutely note. My sister-in-law died from breast cancer about 7 years ago, and my brother has said more than once that he recognizes almost nothing of the sequence and content of my treatments the last year – in terms of overall procedure.

    I’m just realizing that my expectation of “feeling all better” very soon has absolutely no basis in studies or experiences – and I will likely do better if I don’t assume that I will feel significantly better – open-endedly – any time soon. More contentment there, most likely. Just adjusting.

    Not feeling good is really not the end of the world. I’m just generally irritated by it and I think I need to get over that!…… (Lots of people haven’t felt good their whole lives so big deal to that….) I hope most of you know me well enough to understand these expressions. If you don’t – just ignore it! I still can’t taste or smell most of what I eat – and that’s tiresome….since August…..

    Successful research is moving so fast in some areas that the people who researched what I’m on now have already moved on to some other new exploration (which is wonderfully good) and there’s a new group of people now evaluating followup studies, etc. and looking for related applications, perhaps.

    The cancer industry (not meant to be derogatory – just think of what’s involved in the railroad industry – believe me, it’s an industry) is moving so fast. And a lot of it is just flat amazing.

      Good to have you back, Sharon, and I hope you feel better soon. Your computer problems weren’t too expensive, I hope!

      One of my cousins is undergoing radiation therapy right now for breast cancer. She posted a pic of her raw underarm, which looks extremely painful; she has two more of those treatments to go. She said she has DCIS which was caught with routine mammograms and ultrasounds (she has every six months), and it is very early stage but high grade. She had a lumpectomy at the beginning of December, I think, so this is part of her follow-up treatment. A few years ago she had some kind of blood cancer, which she beat, so I hope this is the end of it.

      You’re in our thoughts and prayers. And yes. this industry is moving at warp speed. My mother went through chemo 25-30 years ago for Non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and what they do today is light years different. Back then, the cure was more likely to kill you. Which it did in her case. None of it is “good”, but it sure has come a long way. Keep the faith.

    • It’s okay to feel bad.

      If there’s one thing I learned form being chronically ill though, it’s that it’s okay to feel bad, but try not to wallow in the feeling.

      I hope that makes sense. I don’t know how else to explain it. :/

        Oh, good grief, yes and yes. If I am EVER caught actually wallowing, get word to Weed right away and she’ll take her trusty shovel and- – – – well, she knows what to do. And if she gets way too enthusiastic about it (she and I sometimes relish such things!! πŸ™‚ ) stella will slow her down just time – love y’all.

        My wailing today is my choice to consciously acknowledge that it’s not all easy. It doesn’t all get better real quick. I have spent way too much time in life carrying on as though, “Hey! I got this~” and have learned in the last ten years or so that there is indeed an appropriate time to say, “Ya know what? I DON’T ‘got this’ and I think I’m just going to sit here with my friends for a few minutes and let them see that which I often conceal.”

        That’s all.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    From Lovely, β€œMay Jesus’ crown of thorns surround President Trump and may all evil that is cast his way be bound and dispensed in accordance with God’s will. Amen.” Especially tonight.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
