When Did You Learn To Tie Your Shoes? Kids Seem To Be Learning Later Now For This Reason

I remember sitting on the stairs and having my dad show me the two different ways to tie my shoes.  I must have been about 6 or 7, when I learned about the bunny ears, or the rabbit running around the tree.  I realized yesterday that our 8 year old, going into 3rd grade, didn't know how to tie his shoes when we got him new ones for school.  How could this be!?  Here's the reason.

Why Is Rent So High In Duluth & Superior, Craiglist Rant About Rent Goes Viral

Yesterday I was looking through Facebook when I saw a post that linked to a Craigslist rant.  It's since been removed, but the message was "how do landlords expect us to pay $900-$1300 a month for rent?"   Also, "It would be cheaper to own a house."   In some cases, that is definitely true.  But why do landlords charge what they do for rent for homes?

Need a Summer Job, UMD’s Rec Sports Outdoor Program Needs Water Safety Instructors
