"calling your kids ugly"

MSNBC: Homeowner denial: My home is gaining value

To a homeowner, a low, but realistic, listing price is "like someone calling your kids ugly," Ariely said with a laugh.
There are three homeowners I know who are trying to sell their house.  All three are in denial.  All three must move (military).  All of them think they will just rent out their house and wait it out.

Facebook for education

I've been playing around with facebook and twitter the last few days.

Got me to wondering how come educational software is so far behind the power curve.

Only one of my kids teachers bothers to use the district homework page, and even that is a pain to get to.  I can check grades online, much to my kids chagrin, but having something a little more interactive would sure be nice.
