    I'm saving up to buy a used car, which I'd like to pay cash for (not finance anything). I'm just confused about whether I should go via private sale or from a used car dealership. The reason I'm confused is the huge price differences I see posted. Dealership vehicles are around 1-2 thousand...

    Our DS15 has developed a passion for the keyboard. He kept begging for one for Christmas. Thinking it was a passing fancy like so many other short lived interests we did not buy him a keyboard, his DGM however did. Well since the day he opened his present he's spent hours fiddling around with...

    I can't help but wonder how other people stand on the type of school they have chosen for their children? How did you chose, and why did you chose the way you did. I also have to wonder what strengths and weaknesses you have experienced in what you have chosen? What type of school have you...

    ~I'm a very private person. There are soooo many subjects I won't discuss on a public forum. I won't use the Geo feature because 'South Jersey' is all anyone needs to know. I'm extremely guarded about what I put out there for the whole world to know(not like they'd care or anything!). I don't...

    We just came home from Parent/Teacher Conference and after much discussion with my son's teacher we decided that he needs a private math tutor. He is getting extra math help at school in a group setting but that is not helping him. He is currently a low C and very close to failing math. We...

    I am curious as to why sometimes it says Private in the last posts column. Sometimes that's what is in the Simple Living or Natural Living last posts column & it will not show any posts at all if you go there. are there problems with those forums?
