and one for the parents: the instant you say your child would never xyz....they do!
On Enjoying snippets of Janesville
I'd head to Skelly's for some fall farm fun. checking out what's happening at JPAC, even if it's just to see the art there. The community calendar at WCLO.com and the Janesville CVB have lots of events that I've never even thought about. I really enjoy O'Riley & Conways - they have some Janesville history in there and good food.
I think Carousel Consignments is a great stop -- even if you walk out empty handed. Someone said the Cozy Inn - for sure. And you are right -- RECAP helped Rotary Volunteers carve those fantastic pumpkins. The jack-o-lantern gardens were enjoyed Fri & Sat for the Halloween Walk.
On A 'different' Janesville
WOW -- I live somewhere else from tink and annimae! I have a hard time finding a night without something going on! Look at the community calendars at the Visitor and Convention Center or even at WCLO.com and WJVL.com
There are so many Halloween events for all ages going on-- Thresheree train - Rock Aqua Jay haunted house - Halloween Walk at Rotary Gardens - Enchanted forest...and decorate?? Have you driven on Milton Avenue?? the decorations are awesome!!
Get outside of yourself and you'll find that, like Steve says -- it's not bad...just different.
On Knilans camp mum on debate details
Are you equally concerned about Ryan not debating Kolste??
On An unsolicited commentary on food stamps
Great commentary Steve - I have often felt that those who get food support should have a pre-set (to some degree) list of what they can purchase. Much like the WIC program.
I would love to see it involve fresh food versus processed, but I know many of those families have parents working a lot of hours and using public transportation (which adds to your "working day" versus driving yourself) and they simply don't have the time or energy to cook from scratch. But healthy options, like WIC seems to be an easy answer.
On Lunch Box Lessons
I always loved packing my son's lunch, and with the aid of the microwave, putting spaghettios in his thermos from time to time!
I also loved when my dad would "decorate" my lunch bag for me. thanks for the grin!
On Partying in a different downtown
We went for a couple of hours - and really enjoyed it. There were many indoor venues, too bad folks were scared off.
On Can you identify with squeeze on middle class?
Trying to pay for health care or a health emergency pushes a lot of families over the edge.
On "Everyday terrorism"
NVgrf - You are right, men can certainly be abused by their spouses too -- but it's MUCH less likely so speaking about women is appropriate. But thank you for the reminder!
