30% considering homeschooling? And some randomness
I recently read an article which claims that a recent survey indicates that "30% of American parents are seriously considering homeschooling their children rather than sending them to public school." I don't have a lot of time at the moment, but my precursory search for information has turned up numerous blogs referencing this survey with no mention of its source. Some just make the statement, and others link back to this article on Buzzle. I don't mean to be skeptical, but that seems like a pretty significant claim to make without source documentation. Does anyone know what survey is being referenced? Maybe I'm completely out of the loop on something considered to be common knowledge (definitely not an impossibility for me).

I just sent Mr. Lim an email. I'll let you know if I find out!

Also, some of you may have also noticed that I have given up on my 3 column template. I liked how it looked on my browser, but could never get it to look right in anything else. So here I am with this. I want to ad a section on Principle Approach links, but I can't decide how I want them to look. At any rate, if you have any suggestions, please let me know. I still can't see my own pictures, but since I occasionally get comments on them, I assume that is an issue with my computer. I thought we might have figured it out the other night when I was trying to find out more information on our new appointee to be Deputy Assistant Secretary of Population Affairs.

Controversial guy, that Eric Keroak. But I'm just interested in the position. What a title...and why on earth do we need it and its little budget? Anyway, every site I tried to look up was blocked by my filter, as it thought I was trying to access pornography. Either the dot gov websites have gone X-rated, or my filter is set a bit high. Ironically, the only site I could view of the several dozen I attempted was Trojan's. One of the complaints against Mr. Keroak is his association with A Woman's Concern, an organization which states on its website that "the crass commercialization and distribution of birth control is demeaning to women, degrading of human sexuality and adverse to human health and happiness." I tend to agree, but then I realized I couldn't really back that up. It has been awhile since I've looked at those boxes in the supermarket, and I'm not quite ready to take my three small children on an expedition to Wal-Mart's pharmacy section to view the marketing of contraceptive devices. I don't even know how the things are marketed.

That is more information than you wanted to know, isn't it? Oh well.

Back to the point. Thing is, my husband lost the password (talking about my filter again). He got some help from some support techs and that is all fixed now. I can view pornographic government websites which mention "family planning," abortion, condoms and sex to my heart's content. (Oh joy). What does this have to do with my pictures? Once in IE, I got a pop up warning me that I did not have authorization to access that site, referring to wherever it is that Blogger sticks my photos. I thought that maybe there was something in my husband's settings that might possibly be affecting my pictures. But it didn't help. Oh yeah. And I can't view any of your pictures either. So if I never comment on them, that would be why.
