  • how to stop my screen from scrolling when i use my arrow keys?

    My arrow keys were working fine all day. I was playing a computer game, must have hit some kind of button or something, because now when I use my arrow keys, which normally cause my character in the game to move and jump, now it just scrolls my screen. Frustrating!!!

    I have tried:

    left clicking in the game

    F11

  • What are those worksheets called where you plot a coordinate and color to make picture?

    They are more for older grades, but they give you a bunch of coordinates like A1, D5, etc. and then show you a square and tell you what color to color in the square. Some of the squares are divided by lines and then once you have drawn each square and colored it according to the key, it reveals a picture?

  • Looking for an old scary chapter book for kids from the 80's or so?

    I think it might have been part of a series - like the Goosebumps, but a different series. They weren't really part of each other, but more possibly about the same town or something. Probably a 3rd grade reading level or so.

    This particular book was about this girl who goes to this school in some town and purchases a full length mirror for her room. At certain times (according to the moon phase I think) the mirror showed pictures of a girl from the past like churning butter times. This girl in the mirror is bad and pulls the modern girl through the mirror into the olden times and then the modern girl has to find a way to get back to resent time.

  • should I keep my kindergardener home for a stomach ache?

    My 5 year old is complaining of a stomach ache. She went to school today and told me her stomach hurt really bad this morning, but I sent her anyways. I never got a call to pick her up. The stomach ache is the ONLY symptom - no throw up or diarrhea. If her stomach is still hurting tomorrow, should I keep her home or send her?

    Yes, I know its my choice, just wondering how many would send their kid to school and how many would keep them home

  • how to print a coloring page from the web?

    When I try to print an image (like a coloring page), it only prints a small version of the picture - like a snapshot of what I want and it also has the URL and page number at the top and bottom. i want to be able to print a coloring page that fills the entire sheet of paper with no URL.

    I have tried to find the right settings, but can't...HELP! I've been trying for almost 2 hours!

  • Am I overreacting to fathers parenting?

    My 5 year old daugther put up a fight about going to her dads last week but ultimately ended up staying night and coming home next morning. This week she didnt want to go at all and nothing was swaying her mind. I left the room while her dad talked to her about it and they talked for like 20 minutes. I kept hearing bribes of going to buy her new dolls, candy, slushies, etc. to get her to come home with him.

    He ended up leaving and she was extremely upset and crying after he left.

    Now when he calls he tells her he has a "surprise" for her when she comes to her house...(even though she has already told me she does want to go to his house next week)

    This really upsets me 1 for him making her feel like crap just becuase she didnt want to go to his house (I understand he feels bad, but he is the ADULT in this situation, not her) and 2 because of all the bribes.

    Just curious on some other peoples thoughts. Is this a big deal?

  • Are some keys unable to be copied? Please HELP!?

    I am renting a unit and the locks are the brand 'Defiant". I have one house key for both the deadbolt and the actual handle of the door.

    I have tried contacting my landlord, but they NEVER call me back. I am leaving on vacation and need help now.

    I went to walmart and made a copy of my one "Defiant" housekey that I have. Howevever, when I got home to test the key, I found out that it wont work at all. I matched it up to my housekey and it does match, but it still wont unlock the locks.

    Is this like a special key so that duplicates cannot be made, or does the duplicate have to be the same "Defiant" brand? HELP!!

  • how can I prove I was hurt by a grocery store negligence?

    I went to a grocery store ( a smaller chain in the midwest that has like 6 stores in MO only) and their parking lot is AWFUL! it has tons of cracks and some of them are rather large. On the way out, I was pushing my cart and it got caught on one of the larger cracks. Because the cart wouldnt go over the crack, the entire cart tipped over with my daughter in it.

    My daughter was fine and my groceries were all good, so I ended up leaving. Later on, I relized how bad my wrist hurts (I assume from trying to keep the cart upright and failing). I cant put hardly any pressure on it without being in much pain.

    So...How can I prove this happened? I called the store, and had to leave a message for the manager, but so far no call back. What if they don't have a video camera outside? Can I do anything (Like if I need to get my wrist X-rayed? I have no insurance)

  • Why is my female cat acting mean?

    There is a neighborhood cat that comes around and I beleive that she is in heat. My indoor female cat has started acting strange and very mean - like hissing at my daughter. My cat has never hissed at this cat before and now she sits at the door and hisses and growls when she sees this cat. They have come face to face when my daughter opens up the door to go outside. Could this other cat be the reason why my fixed cat is acting weird and mean (territorial maybe??)

  • What type of word puzzles are these?

    I remember doing these in school - where there would be a picture and then from the picture(s) provided, we were supposed to figure out the phrase or saying.

    For example, if there was a picture of the number 1 and a hole taken out of the middle, the answer would be "Hole in One"

  • Health Insurance Question?

    I work in a very small office with no human resource department and my boss is extremely unhelpful.

    I am quitting my job and my last day of work is 12/30. My pay period will be from like 12/11 through 12/24 leaving 5 days on my last paycheck. I am trying to find out when my insurance coverage ends and have been told that even though my paycheck ending date will be 1/15/2012, my insurance coverage may actually end 12/1. How can I find out the exact end date of my coverage?

    Would my insurance carrier know this or would this only be known or based on my employer?

  • Anyone have any experience with chalkboard paint?

    I am thinking about painting the top of my kitchen table with chalkboard paint but have a couple of questions from those who have used it before:

    Does the paint peel? Is it just like any other wall paint?

    Say a drink, bowl of soup or grease gets on the paint - can it be wiped off without ruining the paint?

    Thanks!

  • Health Insurance coverage?

    I am looking into health insurance for me and my daughter. I am a single mother who will be out of work for a minimum of 6 months (I will be student teaching). I am looking into Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance and need some help.

    The plans that I am looking into are 5K and 10K deductible, the 10K is about 50$ cheaper than the 5,000 deductilbe.

    Neither plan has emergency room coverage. I have only been to the emergency once since mfy daughter was born (she is 4 now). Should I have to go to the emergency room, I would have to pay the deductible.

    Is emergency room service that important? I cannot decide on which deducitble or if I should keep looking. Jsut want some thoughts on this. I've never been without a job so never had to shop for health insurance before.
