    Are you kidding? I was just saying the other day how lucky I felt to have grown up in an era when the Disney Channel actually played their stuff out of the vault. I own that one. (Also Candleshoe, Blackbeard's Ghost, and both Apple Dumpling Gang movies.) Or should I just call you Jake?

    In another thread, someone asked how we can attract younger people to BAUT. There's the answer, breed them.

    Congratulations, and thank you for sharing it.

    Really, it's nice to know that special things are happening to people that one only knows about because they frequent BAUT. We live in a science-fictional universe!

    lol! Well, to be honest, I am not familiar with any of those movies You can certainly call me Jake... my parents thought of the name while watching that movie.

    I am going to do all I can to direct my child toward the sciences... I was given no such direction and did succumb to the lure of the fuzzy disciplines to my great regret.

    Expose your child to many things and rejoice in the final path chosen.

    Congrats Zunar,
    In time your child will have several million questions for you. Take the time to explain those answers along with enough background to make things clear. It is important for a child to realize that there is always an answer if you take the time and patience to find it.
    And reading stories together is priceless. There are few jobs in life as important as reading to and with a child.
    Best regards,
    Dan

    Especially when the things one knows involve the people's future.

    Best plan. They don't respond well to forcing.
