How long until you turn 18?

I am turning sixteen in a week so I still have two years.

My brother is coming up on his 18th birthday so he is kind of running out of time. My dad didn't make Eagle because he played around with it, so he's pushing my brother to make his.

My brother is a life scout who is on the beginning stages of his project. He is re-doing the Christmas decorations for my town because my town has this huge Christmas celebration every year. I'm going to help him by painting some of the wooden decorations. Maybe there is some seasonial decorations that need redone for your town. I know that this isn't one of the more glamourous projects, but that isn't the point, right?

Wait, I don't understand why Ireland has so many dead. I thought the war was in the Middle East ... Eh?

Thanks Vickster and Wanderer. The sad thing is, last night, my mom just got over the migraine she's had for 3 days now ... and my dad's TDY again. (He the medic for TaCP’s and PJ’s, "The Green Berets of the Air Force" as the nickname goes.)


I wonder if your father's absence induces your mother's migraines...An adult version of separation anxiety? Does your mother get them more often when your father is TDY? Most migraines tend to have a trigger, but usually a physical one, e.g., bright lights.

No, I don't think so. I know that they started for her when she was about 14-15, I think. But after a while they stopped occuring until she got pregnant with my older brother when she was 23ish. But the stress of having Dad away so much doesn't help.

Every year I go to Applebee's for the free meal honoring Veteran's. But... I get evil looks and comment when I go.... isn't that sad?

Why you ask? Because I'm a female Vet. I fought just like everyone else, but while my son and I were being escorted to out table, an old man yelled out.."Veterans should be seated first!!!" Maybe I should have kept my mouth shut, but I turned around and looked the guy in the eyes and said, "I am a Veteran." funny thing was, his wife hit him and I over heard her say... "she is a Vet."

Then, I get to the table and the waitress asks to see my "papers" which I gladly showed... because I'm proud of what I did and she looked at them "forever" Now, two things... does she even know what a DD214 is? Secondly, did she ask every other Vet for ID? I left feeling very uncomfortable as if I was trying to "get a free meal and faking being a Vet." I thought about it and was disheartened by it. More and more woman are serving their country... When will people get it!!! Think

I know plenty of women in the military, some of them are family. My mom is a former Army Vet Tech, she never served in the war because she got out after she found out she was pregnant with my older brother, but she was going to if she wasn't pregnant. One of my Venture Leaders is a Navy Vet, I don't know exactly what she did, but I know she lived in a ship. I too want to join the military as a medic (Air Force or Army, still haven't decided which service). Both of my parents are proud that I want to join the service.

I have very thick and curly/wavey hair and I found that any Scünci brand hair ties without the annoying metal band works very well and doesn't damage or hurt, plus they come in different sizes, thicknesses, and colours. I also use bobby pins and clips when I just want my bangs pulled back or I'll just wear my hair half up/half down. I agree with Cat, a side-braid is very cute and keeps your hair out of your face.
Topic: Cursive writing vs Typing
Posted: Wednesday, November 10, 2010 6:54:57 AM
I'm a junior in high school and I remember way back in 3rd grade, we were taught cursive. I still use a little of it now, especially when I'm taking notes, but for the most part a use 1/2 print and 1/2 cursive. However, we don't have to use cursive, even though I remember my 3rd grade teacher telling us that we would.
So I agree with B355E, in this day and age, knowing both cursive and typing is very valuable, as teens use their computer for projects, homework, Facebook, ect.

My mom is 100% Pennsylania Dutch, and she makes this amazing pie called "Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Crumb Pie". This pic isn't mine, but it's the best I could find.
