Karl Schroeder has been busy loading the family tree into the computer. You can see it from the Schroeder website by clicking on the Family Tree link. Great Job Uncle Karl!. (P.S. send all corrections and changes to him!)
Busy - Busy -Busy. There are 3 computers in the office in our house. I discovered awhile back that it was easier to dedicate a computer to a single job than to try and make one computer do everything. So one computer does all of the word processing and banking, one does picture scanning and editing and the third is used for trying new software - so I don't mess up the other 2 computers. We have had a home network for several years so the computers could share the printers. My employer decided in September to pay for cable modem service so I could work at home if needed. This resulted in rewiring the office. There are 3 computers, 3 keyboards, 3 monitors, 6 speakers, 2 printers, a photo scanner, 3 uninterruptable power supplies, 5 power strips, a fax machine, 2 VCRs, and 4 network switches in this room. Each piece has wires going to it - I have lost count, there are at least 60 wires in the room. It took most of September and October to get things working. The cable modem has me hooked though. Now on to the two computers downstairs for the kids!
I have a talking problem. Her name is little sister. She learning more and more words every day but learned some bad words like: "She hit my head", "Ouch! Ouch!" and "She took my car, dolly, teddy bear, etc". All this time out time is cutting into my free time. What can I do now?
Dear SS,Signed,Sweet but Slandered
I reading books on great smart people. One of them said, "One picture is worth a lot of words". You can't let your little sister learn a lot of words or you will live in that corner. Use Pictures. Find a picture of a kid's head. Show your little sister and say "ball". Then she tell mommy "She hit my ball" This not so bad. No time out for hitting her ball (heh-heh-heh). It be years before she get it right again. So start looking for that picture book.
Ooh I see that my younger sister Bridgit is happy playing with something so I have to take it away from her!
