    My daughter is graduating this year. We just met with her recruiter and he believes she has to have an "official" transcript from the county because of new rules the Navy came out with in August.

Does anyone know anything about this? She is already enrolled in college and will have close to an AA when she graduates high school this year. She also scored a 77 on the ASVAB without preparation. She is retaking for a higher grade. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW, please do not answer. I am just looking for information while I wait for Monday when I will be speaking to the school to enroll her if necessary.

  • Can a small turtle be place in a regular fish tank with a floating dock?

    My daughter found a baby turtle, very little, that we think a bird must have dropped in our neighbors yard. We plan to release him after he gets a little bigger.

    My daughter found a baby turtle in my neighbors back yard. It is not even 1 inch in diameter. It looks like a yellow slider. I really believe it must of hatched within a couple of days ago, it just started eating after two days in captivity. Any way of telling if I am right?

  • Are we to believe that they don't fingerprint when you go to jail (Katherine and Marge storyline, Y&R)?

    I know its all fantasy, but its my guilty pleasure. When Katherine was booked into jail, they took her fingerprints. This would have put the mystery about who she was to rest. I hate it that the writers want us to COMPLETELY check our brains at the proverbial door when we watch this show. What do you think?

  • Is there an "Adopt a Marine" program in 29 Palms California, faith based?

    Our Marine can't come home for Christmas and is a little down being so far away (we are in Florida). Is there a program that a church sponsors to at least get him into a Christian home for the holidays?

    My daughter has taken Pre Algebra, Algebra and now Algebra 2 with Saxon Math. She is still struggling and I don't believe she really "knows" it like I want her to. I thought I would find out what anyone thought of this curriculum. Thanks

I am just curious, I don't want to bother his recruiter and his family is even more clueless then we are. He seems a little overwhelmed and doesn't seem to understand the process himself. Can anyone give us info?

  • Will making a planter box for flowers under an Oak tree, with dirt right up to the tree trunk kill my tree?

    Last night I was discussing this with my father and he said that my planter (which has dirt about a foot high encircling the tree about 18 inches out all way around) will kill my tree eventually. I have seen people around here with these planters before, but is this true? Is so, how do you correctly make a planter? The tree is about 18 years old.
