   FL Homeschool Mom posted on Coffee Klatch  Gerry and Jacob on the same team (different divisions! ).

Sorry I've been a stranger - we have baseball 4 nights a week, riding lessons and homeschooling so I don't get much free time. The kids are growing up so fast, especially Gerry. He just turned 12 in January and he's already 5' 7". He got his first home run last week. Abby has her trot down and is hoping to canter soon. Jacob is trying to keep up with Gerry - thinks he should be able to hit and throw like his big brother and gets frustrated when he can't.

   FL Homeschool Mom posted on Main Page The Lobby  Saw the Thanksgiving thread on the mother site and thought of a great idea. A Lucianne cookbook with recipes from the cooking threads with all the proceeds supporting the Lucianne web site. Just a thought. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

   FL Homeschool Mom posted on Pet Peeves  Does Microsoft sell our info? I have been bombarded with calls from "private number" and the person on the other end is definitely in India and claims to be calling on behalf of MS. I lost it the other morning when they woke me up (I was still sleeping due to the flu! ) and screamed that I'm on do not call list and to lose my bleeping number. I've thought about buying a call blocking system, but will it work if there's no number listed on the caller ID? Some of these callers will call 5-6 times a day from a different number every time.

Any ideas would be welcomed!

   MeiDei  It's a scam - they tell you you have a terrible virus, worm or other and then they try to sell you their services to correct it. I think this group was once affiliated with a security company i.e., MacAfee or Norton. My guess is they left and took customer info with them.

   Gerty  It's the first step to total legalization.

Nice to see you posting Fl MOM!

   Surfhut  FL Mom, nice to see you again. I was born in 1954 and have seen how marijuana can ruin lives. I lived in SoCal when medical marijuana was determined legal and saw what a complete joke that became. However, I have known 2 very dear friends who had top-notch health care policies for whom marijuana was the only thing that let them have any quality of life during late stage cancer. It is a question you have to decide for yourself. Pray, dear FL MOM, and let the Lord guide you.

   Hollyhock  Hi Fl Homeschool Mom. Good to see you post again. If you want to know about what the future holds for your state when medical marijuana is legal look to my state of Washington and to Colorado. Gerty is right. This is the first step. Now can sell recreational pot. Anything goes. The pot they grow now is nothing like what was available in the 60's. I was born in 1949 and I have seen plenty of lives wrecked that started with smoking pot.

   Hollyhock  Thank you WW for explaining better than I could. I was thinking about my post and was getting ready to delete it. I don't want to come across as a self righteous cranky old woman. The question is about medical marijuana for people suffering with disease and intolerable pain.
I care about the children who are exposed so early in life. They are our future.

   FL Homeschool Mom  It's a tough one. I suffer from stenosis, arthritis, and bulging discs. They keep changing laws on pain meds and at some point, I wonder if this will end up being our only option. I smoked the stuff 20+ years ago - don't really think I could again. The stuff out there now is way too strong.

Still on the fence.

   Gram77  Are you speaking of SKYPE? That would be really great. My computer has this feature but I have never got it up and running because no one I correspond with has that feature. Would this be a difficult job for Luis to set up?

   FL Homeschool Mom posted on Politics  Hey strangers! Wanted to ask everyone what they think of Amendment 2 in FL? I'm a staunch conservative, but I'm leaning yes on this one. I deal with chronic pain from stenosis, bulging discs and arthritis in my back. I don't use marijuana, not sure I would ever use it, but I have a feeling chronic pain sufferers will have no choice but to go this route. I'm so sick of the DEA telling my doctor what medications I can take and doing their best to restrict and deny our medications.

What do you think?

   Alice  I think it's high time that chronic pain sufferers take priority over drug abusers. Eons ago, maybe 1981-ish, Scientific American had an article about heroin (for pete's sake ) not causing addiction when used for actual pain. I am far from an activist on the subject since I do not have a dog in the fight (yet, and please God never ) but amen to your comment about the DEA.

   Bettijo  I think the legality of pot should be left up to the states, just like alcohol. When I was in college, my college was located in a "dry" county. Fraternity brothers would drive across the state line to purchase booze for parties. That was probably illegal, but, nonetheless, it should be up to the states to decide. I think marijuana should be "legal" on the federal level. I have never even seen marijuana, so, like Alice, I don't have a dog in this fight. And, in my opinion, neither does the federal government.

   M2  I voted for medical use of marijuana here in Florida but the bill, as you know has failed. That is a shame because there are so many old, sick people in Florida many of whom are going through chemotherapy who could use any help they can get. What a shame that the elderly and the sick get screwed while the dopers get free stuff.

   FL Homeschool Mom posted on Pet Peeves  Parents at their kids' baseball games. I signed my son up to play travel ball for a season - will be the last time since the youngest wants to play t-ball in the spring and I can't split myself in 2 and travel all over central FL.

Anyway, at our last game on Saturday night, our kids were playing a Hispanic team. The parents were loud before the game even started and I suspect they were drinking. During the game they were yelling at our kids in Spanish and carrying on like they were at the World Series and not a kids baseball game. One of the Dads told us the following day about the obscenities that were being yelled and the words they used were truly disgusting. I can't understand why our coach didn't alert the umps about this and shut it down. He speaks Spanish and knew what they were saying.

Never again will I sign up to do travel ball. Most of those kids will be burned out and unable to throw by the time they reach HS. 10 year olds throwing curve balls! Some of the better teams end up playing 5 to 6 games a weekend.

One more month to go.

   Rake King  We have become obsessed with winning, fed by Mom's and Dad's who miss the point of sportsmanship. It's all right to cheer and root, but when the game is over "the shaking of hands may be the greatest lesson".
