if you have not used the khan academy website to tutor your child
you should try it
some schools are using this site as homework where the
students do a lesson on this website then work on it the
next day in a large group
how to do an algebra problem
the academy teaches the students online then the next
day the whole class works on the lesson
the kids seem to learn better this way

the website is www.khanacademy.org

a sugary drink a day increases the chd coronary heart
disease risk by 20% as well as the risk for diabetes
think about that when you grab your coke pepsi moutanin dew
or big red
just try h2o yes good ole water
a great non calorie drink that the body requires to survive

in texas a study followed a large group of eight graders until 6
years after graduating from high school
only 19.9% received any type of degree within that 6 years
thats no bachelors associate or certificate
that doesnt look very good does it
even ut researchers were shocked at their findings
were going wrong somewhere
maybe college degrees arent what the kids need

i will admit that i got my bachelor degree 8 years after high school
yes it took me awhile but i finally made it
i got my medical degree 14 years after graduating from high school
so the stats didnt fit my situation as being a bad thing

you would think though that with all we are investing or not investing
in our educational system that more kids would have their degrees
by 6 years post high school or at least a 2 year degree or certificate
so this means our work force is mainly only high school educated

teens are texting more and calling less
the average teen texts 50 times a day
how do they get anything done
if i did that many texts i never would get all my honey does and
country n work done
heck some older teenagers average 100 texts a day
only 39% of teenagers even make phone calls

i know its easier to communicate with people using texts
i find myself using it more and more every day
even my motherinlaw is a texting feen

yesterday i released the hounds
these are lady bugs being released in my garden
they were released late in the evening after watering my  potatoes
so they could have moisture to drink
heck theyve been cooped up in a bag in the refrigerator for awhile
and were thirsty and hungry

now they will go out and attack and eat those bad aphids and other
bad bugs
