Frontier life was difficult for all concerned but most especially for women and children.
One of the main things he did was to establish many national parks.
Peer pressure, boredom, a misguided sense of experimentation, a desire to appear older than they really are, a lack of responsible adult supervision, no sense of what harm they are doing to their long term future, no respect for the law or the consequences of disobeying the law, a failure to understand what harm they … Read more
I am sorry to be the bearer of bad new but there is no such thing as a "real" magic wand....at least not in the adult world of reality. In the children's imagination, anything is possible. Dreams and imagination are what all the great inventions of the world began with.
It would not be proper or healthy for you marriage to attempt to "make" your husband do anything. You might ask him or tell him that it is something you would appreciate him doing for you, but to make him would be wrong. Something of this magnitude should be his decision, not yours. He may … Read more
In her generation, my Mother had to be one of the first women's libbers. She was an independent person and passed that on down to me and I made every attempt to pass it to my daughter. My Mother worked not because she had to, but because she enjoyed it. Working gave her the opportunity … Read more
We (my husband and I) are very friendly with the neighbor behind us and next door to us. We know and speak to the neighbors across the street and several other of the neighbors on our block and the street to the side of us. I am treasurer and V.P. Of our neighborhood association (about … Read more
Your personal business is just that - personal. Your husband has no right to reveal any of your personal business to anyone....period. There are things that should be kept between a husband and a wife and not discussed with anyone else, particularly a X-girlfriend. You will notice that the 2 who said it was OK … Read more
Why does my husband always treat me like I am no one special? Are all men this way? No talking, no dating, like room mates. Totally miserable after 20 years of marriage, and two kids. What's to look forward to? Death?!
You obviously are very conflicted about the situation with your husband. You say the 2 of you tried counseling but he quit going. I will suggest to you that you go back and go alone if you must. Tell hubby that you intend to return to counseling because you want to make every attempt to … Read more
There are no advantages to water pollution. The disadvantages are fairly obvious. Without sufficient safe drinking water all animal life would cease. Even if the water is only polluted partially and not enough to kill, it can still make humans and animals very ill. Then...it can be so polluted that the fish and aquatic life … Read more
My Chevrolet Cavalier Car Is Stuck In Neutral And Will Not Shift Gears. I Can Move The Gear Shift Up And Down, But It Will Not Come Out Of Neutral. What Could Be The Problem?
It could be a problem with the shifting cable. Have you checked the transmission fluid? Worst news of all - it might be a bad transmission. There is no real way to diagnosis the problem via computer.
The main advantage of land transportation over air is cost. It is cheaper to ship by land than air. The main disadvantage is that land is slower.
I believe in personal responsibility. That does not mean that overindulgence of alcoholic beverages does not occur, of course it does. But, there is over indulgence of doughnuts also and that is not a healthy thing to do, yet we do not ban them. I understand that some people can not stop drinking once they … Read more
Hitler was viewed as a hero in the beginning. He was a very good speaker and made promises of change in a country that was desperate for a better life. It was a gradual take over of the country. He convinced the people that he could make changes that would benefit them. He started the … Read more
I am amazed that anyone would have a problem with blood donations. I have certainly never heard of it being an issue where girls are more fearful than the guys. The blood is literally a life saving liquid. The instruments used to draw the blood is (in the United States) sterilized. Well trained professionals draw … Read more
I would recommend that the 16 year old find someone nearer their own age. The 12 year old is simply not as mature as the 16 year old and is truthfully not as capable of making good decisions as is the 16 year old. I doubt the parents of the 12 year old would allow … Read more
According to science you are either born gay or you are not. "Turning" gay is a choice. It is a choice made in this case by a girl who is afraid to face being hurt again by someone she cares for. The unfortunate truth is, she may be hurt by a girl as easily as … Read more
My list is not all that long - elder abuse and child abuse (physical and verbal) heads it up. What is more heart breaking than have someone who is supposed to love and protect you (and who you love) be the person who mistreats and abuses you? Innocent children who are caught up in the … Read more
How important is a funeral? You might ask the parent's of the soldier who was lost at sea or the family of one of the 9-11 victims who was never found. A funeral offers the opportunity to say the last good-bye. Only in the recent years has it become common place for the deceased person … Read more
No, I have not. Like Socrates63, I have the problem of some asking for a friend's acceptance and then they disappear. To my knowledge, I have never failed to answer a shout in my shout box. I try to answer as many questions as I have time for on a daily basis. When I disappear … Read more
