Ahhh the date is nearing! June 10-18th! My daughter Rylee and I flying to WA State for a week of non Floridian activities. :o) This includes a Vans Warped Tour trip in Auburn WA on June 15th, I am still a little scared about that. I am hoping that she will love this state as much as I did when I first visited in 2009. The difference in the atmosphere, the people and the scenery. She has never flown, and is excited about that as well, and I hope she retains that excitement on the LONG FLIGHT…Continue

Even a screw up like myself, was able to help create such perfect human beings,two people whom I would without a…Continue

My name is Stacy and I have a beautiful 3 year old daughter named Copeland. We just moved to Polk City from St.Pete to be with my wonderful boyfriend Nick. Unfortunately, we don't have many friends with kids out here and we have been looking for a way to connect with our community. I found this site and thought it'd be the perfect opportunity for us to get some helpful advice, resources and hopefully a way to meet new people!

My name is Heather Hollingsworth, and I'm a reporter for The Associated Press. I am writing about the proliferation of student retention policies. I want to talk to a parent whose child has struggled on the FCAT in third grade. I know that can lead to students being held back, and I want to hear firsthand what this is like for children and families. If you've been in this position, please call me at 1-800-852-4844. Thanks in advance for the help.

In my experience I will not recommend Verizon Fios over Brighthouse. I was told if I signed up my bill would never change for two years. The sales person even used Brighthouse as an example. My first month was $152.00. Next month $156.00. Third was $163.00. When I called I was told they had an equipment rental increase and when I said mine was not to change for two years the answer was SORRY. I went back to Brighthouse and Verizon can take me to small claims court for the charges they sent…Continue
