re: Year Round School - La Legislative proposal - Thorny on 5/10/21 at 11:52 am
Did something like this for first 4 years of school. They called it "45-15", meaning we had 45 days on and 15 days off, and it was done in part to help overcrowding in a fast growing county (Pasco County FL). All it really did was spread the learning loss around the year. Scores were not particu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Hypothetical if multiple Biden states are shown to be Trump states through audits - Thorny on 5/6/21 at 4:47 pm
Biden will remain president no matter what happens. 1) Each state certified a board of Electors. 2) Congress certified those boards of Electors as legitimate (this was the predictable and inevitable result on Jan 6th, which neither the protest nor the reaction to the protest was ever going to c...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Are you guys ready for Annual Vaccinations? - Thorny on 4/15/21 at 2:51 pm
I had Covid back in June. Knocked me down for a week and still feel some reduced lung function. Still, following the guidance, I took the Pfizer vaccine, with the second shot this past Monday. After both shots, I had a bad reaction and was tired and sluggish the entire next day. I'm not get...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
