    The state of schools in south Florida

    I'm sure that I've made it clear previously that I feel that the school districts down here, well, suck balls.  Let me relay a tale which proves this point. First, let me say that I know that my child is not perfect.  She's a normal, sometimes forgetful 15 year old.  I'm over that part.  I'm used to reminding her of things a million times.  About a week and a half ago, she told me that she needed $5.  Of course, it's like pulling teeth, so I have to follow up with 'for what?'.  Long story short, the teacher "made" them all take at least one raffle ticket to sell. (it's…

    The week in review, btw ROCO

    Hiya loyal readers <snicker> and those who just stumble upon.  On with all the nothing that happened in my world this week. I think that we're all growing increasingly tired of politics.  I'll skip over all that jazz, except for one little photo to be posted a little later. It's been a quiet week in la casa de MiamiShyner.  Lots of exercise going on and I've managed to get down to 125.  I am still shooting for 120, but hey, I just don't think my body is interested.  There are officially 2 weeks until I go under the knife. (Double S, if you're reading this, yes, I know how you…
