Re: Bugging Out to Wal-Mart, Costco, Sams Club: No!

This is one of the ZS epic threads. It is filled with lots of wisdom as well as its share of fail. It is almost worth downloading into PDF form. :D Is there a way to download threads as PDFs? Open it in Chrome. Print each page but instead of using your printer change the option to 'print to pdf'

Re: SafetyTat for Kids

Your story of the library just proves my point. Someone else left their child for another person to take responsability. This tat just allows this behavior more easily (oh, they'll call me if something happens...lade da). So try answering the question, what is the benifit? Just because YOU feel the...

Re: What training and certs do you have and maintain.

I start training for st John Ambulance on Saturday so I'll soon have some training, qualifications and the chance to use it while volunteering. The only other I have was my st John Ambulance young life savers award that ran out years ago and a little training I did on my door supervisors course.

Re: SafetyTat for Kids

I recently worked security at a festival. This festival was doing an extra wrist band for kids which you could put a phone number on in case the kid got lost. At first I was working in the main area checking wrist bands and anytime we saw a kid without the extra one we would tell the parents what th...

Re: Home made pet food

I've got two dogs - a two year old great dane and an 11 year old border collie/lab mix. The lab developed what we believe is a food allergy to grains some time ago (horrible, horrible squirty poops). We tried a dozen different foods, and finally tried home made food. The home made food helped, but ...

That's not cool to bring any weapon to school even if it is in your car. That is something the child should have left at home. A lawsuit is a little over the top.
