I discovered that my gluten free/dairy free bread was falling because there was too much liquid in it. The dough has to be much thicker than it appears in by the recipe ingredients. Have you tried reducing the liquid you add?

Added: Whoops! If I had read further I would have seen you've already tried this. (Sometimes I have to post before I forget what I was thinking. ) Gluten free bread is sooo hard!

This website: http://www.carseatsak.org/Links/inde...ion=BoosterLaw says that the new law will go into effect on Thursday. So that's a little more time for people. But really they need to be making this very well known. Reading it here is the first I've heard of this new law. Although I thought it was already the law quite honestly... but my dd is only 1 so I wasn't too worried about it at this point.

Where is the tues night race series and what is it all about? I've never heard of it.


Are there any other places with pumpkin patches were kids can pick their own pumpkins?

Here's the entire safety seat law: http://www.carseatsak.org/Links/inde...tion=AlaskaLaw

To me it sounds like if they're over 8, it's recommended but not required (if they're under the height or weight limit). If they're under 8 and under the height or weight limit, they're required to be in a booster.

Thanks for the heads-up on E's age. I'm braindead today.

Ever have one of those days you *SET ASIDE* just to stay home and get some housework done? Ever have those days infiltrated by fifty things to do outside the house? Grrr.

I meant to give my room the kind of cleaning I gave the rest of the downstairs, and all I got done was the armoir w/ the TV in it...at least I have about three boxes of movies to get rid of!

I loathe making plans to get chores done on a certain day for just this reason.

A. went to her boyfriend's bday party last night and very probably has a broken nose now...they were all playing hide-and-seek in the dark, and someone jumped off a garage freezer onto A's face. We ran into her karate master in Fred's right after the party, and he was hard pressed not to laugh...hour after hour in Tang Soo Do, sparring, kicking, running, etc., and she goes to a birthday party and gets her face all bruised up.

Hope everyone is enjoying the autumn. It's my favorite season. Not enough thunderstorms yet, though.

Karen, I'm sorry you and Emma have been ill. Hopefully you got the easy virus and now you're done!

love, p

Okay, now I'm re-re-re-reading this part:

"If your child is younger than eight, less than 65 pounds, or under 4 feet, 9 inches in height, the child must be in a child safety seat to ride in your car. "

And I'm seeing that if they are any of those things (under 8, OR if they are under 65 lbs, OR if they are below 4 foot 9), they must be in a car seat.

I'm pretty sure that's how it's meant to work, because the lady in the article talks about how seat belts aren't made for people under 4'9", etc.

So E does not meet the requirements, in my reading. Isn't one of our mamas a CPST?

love, p

Okay, never mind, the Alaska Child Passenger SAfety site says this:

CHILDREN OVER 4YRS OLD AND UNDER 8 YRS OLD (WHO ARE UNDER 4'9" OR LESS THAN 65 LBS.) SHALL BE PROPERLY RESTRAINED IN AN APPROVED BOOSTER SEAT OR CAR SEAT.

The wording there is much simpler. Sorry to babble on and on.

love, p

Hard to understand article regarding child restraints. This is from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety http://www.iihs.org/laws/childrestraint.aspx

Quote:
4 through 7 years who are at least 57 inches or 65+ pounds; 7 through 15 who are shorter than 57 inches or weigh less than 65 pounds (effective 09/15/09)
So it looks like you kids in a restraint until they are 15 if they skinny and/or short. My best friend in high school and my SIL are just 4'9" - they would have to be in a booster until they were old enough to drive - odd. Both drive with pedal extensions though.

And I hear ya on the tender bust...I was so worried about this time because I was still breastfeeding when I became pregnant...turns out it wasn't a problem at all until I weaned. Now if anybody touches they are tender. Go figure.

So, I heard that all the schools showed the president's speech. Any thoughts on it? Did anyone go and watch it with their children?

No sticky again. Started feeling the little contractions come and go about 6:45 pm. Had no warning this time.
Then on top of that, I twisted my knee again
So, I took some Advil, and dh is running to the store to get me some Ben and Jerry's, and we are going to curl up and lose ourselves in a good movie.

I'm so glad we did not tell anyone in real life this time.
Makes it easier I think.

Well none of those helped! I'm still confused!
I read it as you have to hit all 3 marks to pass into a seat belt, DH reads it as you only have to hit one.

My son is 9, 76 pounds and 50 inches. So??? Good Luck getting him into a car seat!

I saw at least one child who had "opted out" left in a room where it was "running"... now the speech kept freezing, as the "live" feed wasn't really working, but if I were that parent, someone's head would have rolled. Not cool.
