My girlfriend's little sister has autism. She is 9, but her cognitive skills stop at a 1-year-old level. She can't talk at all and all she does is play with baby puzzle boxes that she puts random…Continue
I am 17 and my girlfriend is 16. She lives in a horrible house where everyone but her 9 year old autistic sister yells at her, especially her mom. Today my my girlfriend woke up feeling sick and her…Continue
My girlfriend and I have been together for over a year now and I am wanting to get her something special. On Valentines day, she gave me a note that had a key with a heart on top drawn on it and I…Continue
Last year, my dad gave me my grandfather's old jewelry box that is possibly 60 years old. It had tons of great treasures in it, but the watch bar on the top has broken off. I would really like to get…Continue
"As a relatively new beard grower also, I would say that you need patience to get good growth. Don't be put off by bald patches or slow growth. Leave it alone! I spent the first few weeks examining it, cutting a bit here, a bit there. After…"
"Hi there, itseems you're a year younger than me. :p Anyway I can give you the facts that a beard will be fully grown at the age of 25. So untill then I'd advice to go for a partial beard.
At the age of 16 I kept myself to some sideburns…"
I would really like to grow a beard, but when I have tried in the past, it is thick in some places, and I mean really thick, but in spots I am completely bald. Is there some way to get the follicles in those areas to kick in?See More
I work as a behaviour interventionist with children with autism so I may be able to help you a bit.

"William, to be fair to Hunter, he's the outsider here, and is probably not privy to whatever investigations/consultations that the young lady has received, and isn't in a position to make suggestions along these lines. I do agree, that…"
"Yes you did the right thing for him. The first and only dog I ever loved was 12 when his hips went. He couldn't walk. That's no way for a dog to live. I had him put down the next day. It was one of the hardest…"
""Transparency", how often have we heard that from this president? How can he promise transparency when he doesn't even know what is going on under his 'watch'? The president sets the tone of the administration,…"
"Jonny---so sorry to hear about your loss. Let me offer my sincerest condolences. I've lost beloved pets before, and I know how tough this can be. I'd encourage you to be good to yourself for the next few days--this may…"
"I don't think its so much that we are failing at spreading the Gospel- I think its that Christians are failing to be Christians. Its the quality vs quantity conundrum. Are those who are already Christians carrying their crosses…"
"Do you mind expanding a bit what you are looking for with "sound moral character"? I am with you that we are stupid to look for the god-like perfection of a candidate, but then what leaves us with then the far extremes or bland…"
"Unfortunately that is probably going to be a difficult and long process. Apparently nobody tells the president anything. His desires are not expressed to those lower down the chain except for his own special brand of transparency. This special form…"
