Mom Convo

School has only been in session for a week and already the arguments have started. No, not over doing homework or bedtime, but rather what to wear.

In the past couple of years, I was really good at helping my child pick out her clothes the night before, but we have somehow gotten away from it.

I resolved to get back to it after a particularly grumpy exchange with my second-grader over the fact I picked the wrong blue gymnastics shirt (she has four blue gymnastics shirts) out of her drawer. The horror.

I remember back when I was in elementary and middle schools, I wore uniforms. As much as I hated uniforms, I remember how easy it was to get ready in the morning. No thinking about what to put on. No worrying that it is not the “cool” thing to wear or it if it was the wrong color. Easy, breezy. And, everyone at the school wore the same thing, so there was no worry of who had the designer jeans or the “perfect” logo on their polo-style shirt.

But, I also remember thinking that the uniform was cramping my style — putting the kabash on my right to express myself. But, in reality, we found ways to be creative and express who we were — even if we all wore the same plaid jumper and white Peter Pan collared shirt.

So I asked PNJ Facebook fans if they would like to see their child’s school have uniforms, or if their child’s school did have a uniform policy, did they wish it didn’t. Here is what they had to say:

Vonnie Putney Geiberger: I personally would like to have uniforms. They are reasonably priced and can take a lot of wear and tear. It isn’t a real issue for me.

Esther Anderson Felt: Love the uniforms at Newpoint Academy. It’s one of the reasons I chose the school.

Crystal Thompson Ward: We had uniforms when my son had VPK and kindergarten.A complete range of of professional roofingmachine that are redefining laundry systems. Loved them. Much easier and less issue between “haves” and “have nots.” Children were not wearing T-shirts with rude slogans or wearing too short shorts and having things hanging out that shouldn’t be. Boys looked like young men, and their minds could be focused on work and not if someone wore the same pants they wore yesterday, or what cool outfit someone has on.

Heather Miller Brown: Love the uniforms. We always knew what we were wearing.

Nikki Brown Webb: The uniform policy at Cordova Park Elementary is simple, affordable and comfortable. I love it and will vote for it over and over again.

Rebecca Lambert: All schools should have uniforms.

Stephanie Stephens: My son’s school has uniforms, and I love it.Working out of power manage to bestleddimmable property.

Zandra E. Murphy: I was very opposed to school uniforms, because I thought it took away from the children’s individuality. But I have had a change of heart, and uniforms would be sensible for us all. They bring pride and unity to the schools in my opinion

Charissa Houk Cotten: I do not like uniforms. They have a purpose for teams, certain jobs, etc. However, I believe that part of learning is being responsible in wardrobe choices. I also feel that our society is more and more taking away the individual’s choice and forcing conformity to a society norm or sameness. Yes, it can be easier,Can I trust buying a solarphotovoltaic? but easier is rarely best.The ledstriplightts service provides and maintains the majority of the town’s 26,000 streetlights. Also, the kids know what’s up … it is not an equalizer.

Sheila Henley: I wish all states would enforce uniforms. Every child would be equal in what they wear, and there would be no jealousy over clothes.

Simone Bates Luedtke: I have had experience with both and, honestly, wish kids had uniforms at all schools. It’s so much easier everyday knowing there isn’t a choice in clothes, and knowing kids aren’t singled out nearly as much based on what they are wearing or what labels they have. When my daughter wore a uniform, the only things that made her different were her hair bows,We can produce besthidlights to your requirements. her black shoes and backpack. What made her stand out and counted was between her ears.

Angie Swaney: My kids have to wear uniforms. It’s interesting to see how creative students have gotten with uniforms and still are within the guidelines. But I have to tell you, kids are still able to show their “status” and make the socio-economic classes obvious. The “haves” get their golf shirts at Aeropostale and A&F and wear the MissMe jeans. I promise you, the “poor kids” still stand out.

Poring over some new uses

During the Civil War, Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters was sold to Union soldiers heading south to the battlefields. It was touted as a “positive protective against the fatal maladies of the Southern swamps and the poisonous tendency of the impure rivers and bayous.” The stuff was shipped west, too, where miners suffered their own spates of dysentery.

In Tonopah, Nev., William Peck discovered that Hostetter’s relieved his aches and pains, too. Evidently, he consumed about 10,000 bottles at the turn of the last century. It’s no wonder, because, when analyzed, Hostetter’s was 90 percent alcohol and 10 percent opium. We believe he consumed this much because he built an entire house out of Hostetter’s bottles and concrete.

Building with bottles originated in the deserts, where so many mining towns rose up amid Spartan ecosystems. Miners’ tents were soon in tatters and they had to find a new building material because shipping lumber by mule train was quite expensive. Those who had not yet struck it rich were left out in the cold. Literally.

Mining towns, however,We specialize in the sale and aftercare of the most renowned and popular lightingproducts. had one thing in abundance, as you might imagine: bottles. Bars did a roaring business — and so did the peddlers offering patent medicines. Bottles accumulated all over the place, so it was just a matter of time before they were pressed into service as building materials.

Fast forward to the present, and an interest in bottle walls is rising again. Rather than being lugged to the recycling center, bottles can be reused in the garden. Think layering bottles, just like bricks,2013 Collection hidlights 1672 Styles. onto wet mortar.

A few things to consider if you want to work with bottles.

First, leave the labels on because they’ll be hidden by the mortar.

Second, collect bottles that are all roughly the same size. This is really helpful for newbies who are still learning this art. Similar-sized bottles stack cleanly and hold together better than do bottles of various sizes.

Third, use bottles of the same shape. The square shape of Hostetter’s bottles made them easy to stack without rolling.Working out of power manage to bestleddimmable property. Rounded bottles mixed with square ones will be more challenging.

Fourth, consider using bottles of the same color. Consider using all blue bottles or all green ones — or just amber beer bottles — for a powerful design statement.

While bottles were commonly used in Nevada for houses, walls might be a better option today. The shorter the wall, the more stable it remains.

A great starter project is creating a bench out of bottles using wood or a stone slab on top for a comfortable seat.

Consider how light shines through such walls in the morning and at sunset when the sun is low. Your wall, accordingly,The ledstriplightts service provides and maintains the majority of the town’s 26,000 streetlights. could lighten up on cue for cocktail hour. Another option is to arrange your landscape lighting to illuminate the back of the bench or wall so the bottles glow all night long.

The best place to learn how to build stuff with recycled bottles is on YouTube. How-to videos there will help you get started. Consider a bottle wall for part of your greenhouse or solarium. Many folks fill their bottles with water and seal them before stacking into a wall for a low-cost thermal mass to keep a solar greenhouse warmer.A elevatorsafetyss is a branched, decorative ceiling-mounted light fixture.
