Re: Teachers can still beat students in 19 states

That word 'BEAT" bothers me so I'll interpret it as slap or hit with a hard object. As a retired teacher, I swear I did neither; however, to be truthful, there were times that I felt sorely tempted...... I learned in Teacher's College that touching a student was grounds for immediate dismissal....

Re: Do you have a housekeeper?

We've had a lovely lady clean our house every other week for the past 16 years. :appl: :wavey:

She's become part of our family. When we treat her to a nice lunch in our area, I introduce her as our friend. Really she is! :love:

I'm thinking of making adjustments to my princess cut to make it 'unique'. I've looked online at Bez Ambar pieces, and I think I might spring for my princess with the Blaze cut diamonds in a 'decent' size as a halo. The princess is 1.77c E VVS2 and I'd like the halo to use the same quality of stones...
