I had a professor who had a baby over Chistmas and was back at work on our first day back. I thought THAT was something; but I guess not really. Now, she's president of the college.

I hate politics. I got involved in a few tussles before my son graduated from high school. Now the population has grown, and the district is not as conservative as it used to be.

When I asked a friend, after the conservative board fired the superintendant, "what are we going to do?" he said "It will be corrected at the next election." Level-headed guy.

To be fair... I had one friend who knew she was pregnant but when she was 9 months pregnant she was still wearing her regular size blue jeans. And I have another friend who was on depo provera and didn't find out she was pregnant until she was nearly 7 months pregnant. She went in for an ultrasound because of pain in her pelvic area then found out she was pregnant. She didn't look pregnant at all... ironically enough her stomach literally popped outwards the following week so I guess, even without the ultrasound she would have known fairly soon LOL.

Mine kicked up a storm in the later months... but some babies don't kick as much as others.

Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain.

Rooby nods in agreement with Babs & Ann. I knew I had conceived both my kids within 12 hours of conception. People thought I was nuts but I was right both times.

And holy cats by the 8th month they're trying to kick your ribs out. My rib cage (if I were thin enough to discern it) is permanently bulged on the right side, thanks to my ten-pound son. He kicked so hard I had to lie down to ease the sensation - lol. Yeah, he's the one who's studying the Israeli Army's hand-to-hand combat methods now. I wish you could see the surprised look on my face.

It boggles my mind how someone can be full-term pregnant and not know it. By the fourth month of my pregnancy, I was well aware that there was a large foreign object in my stomach that bounced when I walked fast.

Amazing. Impressive though, that she was able to deliver the child, pick up another one from school and then drive to the hospital to get everything checked out, before dinner. Super Mom!

Alas, I'm not very surprised.

Governents, including our own, have been rewriting history ever since "history" was invented.

I got one of my old world history books from 6th grade out when my son brought his 6th grade history book home. They were not even close!!

In Missouri, at least one part of it, they no longer teach about the founding fathers at all. Let alone separation of church and state.

I remember when there was a big government complaint about North Korea, the USSR and China rewriting their history books. One look at ours and no "stink" can be made by our government about what the others did!

Heck! The English kings even rewrote the bible to suit their agendas. If someone can twist something that is SUPPOSEDLY "holy" to them, our history has no chance in hades!

Politicians do it all the time. It's just that most of the time we don't see it.

Let the snow fall deep, the rain drive down, and the wind buffet my cloak. I care not for I've a road worth walking!

Hi, Sparkfriends. Allan just showed me this in the middle of our regular Saturday morning watching VH1 Top Twenty. I wasn't in a serious mood until I took a look at this. #^%*@#
How do they get away with this? Think of the long term effect of this. When you learn how Texas' votes can change the country's textbooks, it is not so easy to dismiss as a state. Note: AUSTIN is liberal, TEXAS as a state is very conservative!

www.tinyurl.com/yfvz25b

Explanation - because TX buys so many textbooks, the state board of education has input on the content. Other large large states do, too. Allan said something about because of the internet, TX votes will have less influence. We'll be out of TX soon and I was ready to forget the state of politics here. This article explains one of the reasons it won't be so easy.

Our son's school district was known as one of the most conservative in the country (north of Austin); then he went to the University of Texas in Austin, which we liked much better. . .rant over (breathe, smile).
