Moms At Work – English grammar question: Hi, Mom!?

Moms At Work

Question by Alice: English grammar question: Hi, Mom!?
What is the difference between saying: Hi, mother! and Hi, Mom!
Who say “Mom” ? Only children? Until which age is acceptable to say Hi, Mom in America?

Do we need to capitalize the first letter of Mom?

Best answer:

Answer by violet
Mother is the person who gives life to a child. Mom is the person who gives her life to the raising of a child. A person who willingly accepts the burdens, responsibilities, heart breaks, and joys of raising a child. In comparison to being a Mom, it takes very little to be a Mother. It takes only nine months to become a mother. On the other hand, to be a Mom takes a life commitment to hard work, worry, and the giving of one’s self for the good of a child.
yes, u need to capitalize

The Fireworks Explosion at Disney During the Pirates and Princesses Party!
Moms At Work
Image by Stuck in Customs
There is a special night at Disney when they close the park for everyone except for the people that bought special passes to the Pirates and Princesses Party. Things were still pretty busy as we scurried around from one stop to another to collect treasure and engage in the booty-like festivities.

They even had a bunch of Johnny Depps running around (one of them rather convincing), taking photos and giving impromptu sword-fighting lessons. I had read a story about a Johnny Depp-lookalike that worked at Disneyworld that had a secret blog… about all the crazy things that would happen behind the scenes with all the randy moms.

Anyway, the finale of the night was this massive fireworks display on top of the Cinderella Castle… it was more than my 10mm could grab!

This is what we do when mom is at work. I love that kids give you new eyes on the daily!

Goodbye, Sammy. (With Flickr notes)
Best Home Jobs For Moms
Image by Earl – What I Saw 2.0
We have been a lot of places together, but that’s all over now. I couldn’t fix what was broken about you, so I had to let you go – even though I didn’t want to.

When I found you on the luggage carousel at BWI, this is what they had done to you.

I love to travel.

My parents gave me my first real piece of luggage in 1970, for my high school graduation – an American Tourister hard side three suiter, in green. (Green was a cool luggage color back then. You have to trust me on this.) I used it all the way until 1994, when a bottle of Jamaican Jerk Spice Rub burst inside it on the way home from a trip to Kingston. Jerk spice is pretty pungent, and I like it on chicken and burgers, but it’s not so hot on clothes. So I bought this one.

Hard sided luggage is kind of expensive, but it really protects your stuff – that’s why I like it. I got a Samsonite because it was the best there was at the time (maybe still) and I didn’t want to have to worry about my stuff getting broken or stolen while I was traveling. I always keep my can’t-afford-to-never-see-it-again stuff in my carry on.

Some places where Sammy and I have been:

Some good times:

Jamaica, 6 times
The Bahamas
Las Vegas, twice
LA
Colorado Springs, CO, twice
Williamsburg, VA 5 times
Washington, DC, 5 times
Richmond, VA
Ocean City, MD – too many times to count
Rehoboth Beach, DE (see above)
Boston
Disney, Orlando
Outer Banks, NC – 4 times

Some sad times, too:

My mom’s and then my dad’s funerals, in Wilmington, DE
My Uncle Bill’s funeral in Wisconsin
My father-in-law’s funeral in Hagerstown, MD

It has traveled in the bellies of buses and airplanes, on trains, on roof racks, and in car trunks from everything from VW’s to Mercedes – and it never let me down. Not once.

I love to travel, and I even love packing for the trip. I guess it’s the old Eagle scout in me. I’m one of those guys who start to get excited folding, packing, adjusting all the stuff that’s going with me because it means I’m going somewhere, anywhere, for a fresh experience and to see something new, or to see something I’ve seen before and loved, again.

I love the way luggage feels when it’s empty, because it’s going to be filled soon, and I love the way it feels full, because it means I’m on the road or about to be in the air.

I love packing the car trunk with all of our bags, getting it all in right, and maybe getting it all in a little better than the last trip.

I love the hustle of airports, leaving early because I never sleep much before I travel – I’m too excited about it. I love seeing all of the people, and talking to other travelers.

I love customs lines, entering another country or coming home to this one, trying to guess where all of the other people are from, and seeing the different look of passports.

I really love getting my passport stamped, because that means I’m somewhere else, ready to get into a fresh culture and a fresh part of the world.

I guess – no, I’m sure of it – that when this bag was broken, somehow I felt like all of those other places and experiences were broken, too. I got mad about it because no one seemed to care.

I know "it’s just a bag."

I also know it’s a whole lot more, too.

I wanted to keep it, even though it didn’t and wouldn’t work right. I thought I could still use it for car trips. My wife said, and I’m sure she was right, that I needed to let it go. I know it’s just a thing. It’s just a thing that that has been with me for some special times, experiences and places, and more importantly, special people in my life.

So today I said goodbye. I put it out with the trash for pickup. And as I type this, looking out our front window at 9:40 a.m., I literally just saw the trash guys pick it up, toss it in the back with the rest of Ann Arundel County’s broken things, and drive off, back up our street.

Am I too attached to stuff that’s attached to good times, and good people? Maybe. Probably.

Yes.

Goodbye. And thanks for everything.

Best answer:

Answer by Christine
She is probably worried that it will affect your grades.

Maybe try and find something that is only a couple of hours a week to start with to. Prove that you can do it, or sign up for some short term volunteer work. Show her that you can do that well without having any problems in school and she may be more inclined to let you do more.

I want to work from home because I home school my son and need money of course. I’m afraid of all the scams and spam out there. Does anyone know of a truely honest way to work from home?

Best answer:

Answer by Gravy
You could try submitting articles to sites like eHow and Associated Content. Since you’re a homeschooler, you already have a jumping-off point for topics people would be interested in reading.

You could also start a blog on it, journaling your thoughts and experiences with the homeschooling life, and support the site with advertising.

Also, look locally for jobs which will allow you to telecommute, or, if you have any special skills like bookkeeping or communications writing, often times small companies and non-profits need someone for occasional work but don’t have the budget to hire someone full-time.

Nope, Death Star… That’s not at all what I suggesting. Didn’t know what color the perps were, and really don’t care. Wouldn’t give a rat’s rear end if they were black, white, green, or yellow with fuscia polka dots. What ever color they may be, they are parasites… Blood sucking, resource using ticks that are a plague to society.

What I WAS suggesting was that in such a public place (meridian and glenview, I believe) that it was too bad a motorist couldn’t have come to Mr. Gibsons aid while he was being beaten, pepper sprayed, and robbed by this vermin. I ( or probably mr Gibson ) wouldn’t care what color the assistance giver was either.

This is not a racial thing… It’s a pest problem. And I never mentioned or implied anything about vigilantism.
.

— Death_Star Ray • 2 hours ago −

Then you also didn’t read the article and were just "shooting" off your mouth since a description of the subjects, including their race, was part of the article. So in the end you are a vigilante wannabe – a GZ waiting in the wings for his 15 minutes for fame. Own it, don’t deny it.
.
.

— Ray Death_Star • 2 hours ago −

SInce you are obviously trolling for a response, let me oblige you….

Definition of Vigilante – any person who takes the law into his or her own hands, as by avenging a crime.

Again…. I did not call for vigilanteism (avenging a crime), I merely said "it was too bad a motorist couldn’t have come to Mr. Gibson’s aid while he was being beaten, pepper sprayed, and robbed by this vermin." Vigilanteism implies I wanted these perpetrators hunted down after the fact and harmed, I have never said that at all. I am not a "vigilante wannabe", I assume by GZ you mean George Zimmerman. I have no ambitions to be like him at all. However, I would certainly come to the aid of a 90 year old man who was being beaten and robbed in is own driveway by two punks if the opportunity presented itself.

Obviously you see the world through a very racial prism and that affects your perception. I do not.

I have read the article. I don’t see where it mentions the race of the criminals, I couldn’t care less what race they are…trash is trash.
.
.

— Ray • 7 hours ago −

Couple of thoughts … What a brazen place to commit a robbery. It’s a shame a passing armed motorist wasn’t able to lend a hand and lead!

Second, it pains me to know that I have to share air with trash such as this. Some folks don’t deserve to be among the living.

A community fixture known to passing drivers as the man selling produce out of his Tallahassee home’s garage is said to be the victim of a Friday robbery.

“I am shocked and angered,” said City Commissioner Scott Maddox of the robbery of Lloyd “Hoot” Gibson, who runs a produce operation out of his home at the corner of Meridian Road and Glenview Drive. “And rest assured, the Tallahassee Police Department will do everything in its power to bring these people to justice.”

Police responded to the area of Meridian Road and Glenview Drive on Friday afternoon where Officer David Northway, spokesman for TPD, said one person was reported to have been robbed.

Maddox identified the victim as Gibson. While TPD said Gibson was not injured, Maddox said he was sprayed with pepper spray during the robbery and had been taken to the hospital.

Maddox’s interest in Gibson and his produce stand extends back 16 years, when in 1997, the city shut down his produce operation after complaints from neighbors. But city commissioners, led at the time by Maddox, unanimously approved a new law allowing him to continue selling produce from his home.

The yard, still filled with signs alerting passing drivers of “Tupelo Honey” and “Mayhaw Jelly,” with all invited to “Pull into Drive Way,” was full of police activity as investigators worked the crime scene Friday afternoon.

TPD spokesman, Officer Robert Grasso, said Friday that police are continuing to work, but no one is yet in custody.

“They are still pursuing leads and interviewing the witnesses,” he said.

— Let’s show support for Hoot Gibson

Re: “TPD investigating Friday robbery” (news article, Oct. 12).

Lloyd Gibson, who was the victim of an assault and robbery Friday, got his nickname “Hoot” from fellow soldiers while serving in the Korean War. The original Hoot Gibson was an old-time cowboy film star, and our Hoot is a North Florida county-western music legend. One month shy of 90 years old, Hoot still performs and has his own CDs for sale alongside the produce that he sells from his home at Glenview Drive and Meridian Road.

If you place 2¼ pounds of produce on the scale, he will say, “Let’s just call it 2 pounds then.” But if you tell him to keep the change, he will graciously accept, saying, “May the Lord bless you.”

Hoot still drives around our region buying tomatoes, squash, Georgia peaches, watermelon, tupelo honey, pecans and many other delicious fresh products. He has no plans to retire and was back to work the day after the robbery. Please rally around Hoot and help him stay in business for as long as he desires.

And to the cowards who used pepper spray on this elderly veteran, a generous and lively gentleman, then stole his hard-earned cash: Shame on you.

— Southerland flunks art of negotiating

Steve Southerland asserts that refusal by the Senate and the president to negotiate is setting a dangerous precedent for the country. Well, it may be time for Congressman Southerland to take a refresher course in both English and civics.

There are two types of negotiation. One type involves two parties with disparate points of view who sit down and hammer out a compromise that neither is particularly happy with but that results in moving forward. This is pretty much the way the nation had managed to advance over the past 230 years.

The other type of negotiation involves two parties, one of whom is, let’s say, a kidnapper or hostage taker, with whom there is little hope of successful compromise.

Which type of “negotiation” is currently favored by Southerland and his colleagues? Let’s just say that their strategy reminds me of nothing less than that commonly employed by Communist North Korea — first create a totally unnecessary “crisis” and then demand that “both sides” find a way out of it.
