re: Tween and early teens with smartphones - Hammond Tiger Fan
[quote]The HS kids use social media to share notes and work on homework in groups. There are no paper party invitations, just posts.

[quote] Yet you come and start threads on the OT for literally just about every life decision there can possibly be. I have no idea how you can be such an authority on parenting when I look at the threads you’ve started over the past 5 years and it scares me to think you can even get out of bed...

re: Tween and early teens with smartphones - Hammond Tiger Fan
[quote]Good luck[/quote] Thanks, but it's not needed. I don't give empty threats when it comes to disciplining my kids.

re: Sedge weed/nut grass - Hammond Tiger Fan
I just tried Sedge Hammer about 10 days ago and it seems to be working. It's sure as hell taking a long time to kill it off though. On the package it said it will take 7-14 days to kill it and it possibly will take at least two applications if the infestation is bad. ...

Trying to see if I'm on the right track for retirement.... - Hammond Tiger Fan
I'm 40 yrs old and when I input all of my accounts into this retirement calculator it's saying I'll have $105k per year when I retire at age 67. I don't know how long they are assuming the payout at that rate. My guess would be somewhere between 85-90 years old. They are also taking into account tha...
