"I think it's here that I read that a shorter commute means greater happiness, statistically.
I'm about 15 miles from my parents and see them about once/month. I work long hours, and my husband and I plan outings well in advance. My parents…"
"Lots of tradeoffs, to be sure. I can make a few observations:
* I'd guess that the difference of being 15 min away from family and 30 min away, say, is not big. You'll not see them w/o some planning, but planning is minimal.
"You should not look 10 years out in terms of school. When my daughter was in kindergarten they were using creative spelling; spelling words like they sound instead of the actual spelling. The teacher was writing words on the board like this and she…"
A little background my self and my family. I am just about 26 years old, and my wife is 24. We have a 16 month old daughter, and a second daughter due in a few months.

Once my blog is…"
"Nukes arent really an attractive option for most nations. It's like having a tank in your driveway. It seems like a good idea, but its expensive to maintain just sitting there, it leaks all over, it's ugly, every cop in town drives…"
"I responded to what interested me, and I'm not sure I can even find your original post.

"I stated Nukes weren't part of the speech already. However in every follow up, he states that nuclear weapons would be on the table when it comes to them defending themselves. His speech says, basically, pay up or defend yourselves.…"
"Oh I see. In that instance I agree. Shane just had me riled up and I over stepped. I apologize for insinuating you meant something different, when you were just interpreting what I posted.
If you don't have an opinion then…"
"If it's the foreign policy speech, I just checked. There are 3 mentions of nukes: Iran mustn't get them; PDRK mustn't; and our arsenal must have "modernization and renewal," whatever that means. No mention of wanting our…"
