Thanks for sharing. I just updated and it seems pretty fast so far.

Maybe something like this designed for both concrete and gravel…
What is your budget? Maybe you can find something on Craigslist.

Oop - I meant we’re making strides with gay rights, not combating guy rights…

Very true, in my country we’ve made progress with racial and gender inequality. We’re slowly making strides to combat gay rights. I think we’ve made the least amount of progress with mental and physical disabilities. If you are poor or elderly and also have a serious disability, then it’s pretty easy for society to ignore you.

[quote pinocchio][quote Lawn]Do you mean to vote for issues that coincide with your own personal religious views? Or to vote for or against a candidate based on his/her religion exclusively?[/quote]
I don’t think the first one is wrong at all - should be able to vote for issues that coincide with your views regardless of how those views are derived. Even the second one I don’t think is necessarily wrong.
In this past election, I was undecided about two local candidates until I noticed one had the following quote listed on his website: “Education is useless without the Bible.” I decided to vote against that candidate, not due to his religion, but because I strongly disagree with that quote.
In reality, I think there are scenarios where I’d vote against a candidate exclusively because of his/her religion. Say, if the candidate was a member of scientology or some such.

That’s pretty weird. I wonder if it’s a typo.
I’d use both sites. I like variety.

“Using a scale of 1 to 5, the researchers rated parental warmth and affection toward the child, criticism of the child, expression of doubts about a child’s performance and ability to complete the task, granting of autonomy, and parental over-control.”
I think the remedy is to be conscious of these things and err on the side of being warm and affectionate toward your child, both at home and in public. Avoid being too controlling - don’t try to do everything for your child or overcompensate for what you see as weaknesses. Be patient and let the child make mistakes and learn from them, at home and in public.
Here’s a bit on childhood fears:
