Old Fashioned Education

I’ve received several letters about my homeschool site and thought I would set things in order.

 I did delete the Yahoo Group. I’m honestly not able to keep up with it. I would love to be able to devote the attention to it that it deserves, but that simply isn’t possible. Posts were getting out of hand and realizing that I could not fix it, I let it go. There was probably a more graceful way to do it. I am not always as graceful as I’d like to be with these things and I apologize to anyone I’ve hurt or surprised or caused grief to through my decision.

The official Old Fashioned Education site is still up and will remain up for years to come. The Yahoo Group I started several years ago has been deleted.

A new Yahoo Group has been started that seems to be affiliating itself with Old Fashioned Education. I did not start that group and do not know who did, but am in the process of finding out more about it.

If you have started a group or message board that uses OFE and would like a link from my main page, please share the url addy in a comment and I’ll check out your group. I think several groups are a great idea so that people can choose the ones that are best for their methods.

I’ll update as soon as I know more. 

Please feel free to post your questions, comments (and even rants, frustration or well justified anger) to this entry. I promise to daily take the time, read and address comments from now until Easter. I will make it a high priority so that everyone who needs to be heard can be.

Thank-you–Miss Maggie

    I was going to unsubscribe from the OFE users group anyway, because it seemed to have so little to do with OFE anymore. But I wanted to thank you so much for all you have done for my family in particular with the curriculum, and also with HBHW. May God bless you and your family, and grant you much success with Frugal Abundance and future endeavors.

  2. Thank-you Kathy. I apologize for not being a better leader of the user’s group. I’m glad my websites have been a help to you though. Thanks for the well wishes. 🙂 MM

    Thank you for all you do. They bickering and the sheer volume were getting out of hand. I did join the new group. I’d like you to check it out. Some of your stuff (like the curriculums) has been uploaded into the files there and I personally think you need to give your OK. email me directly if you want more info. I might not see your note if you comment here.

  4. Karen

    Thank you so much for the information on your OFE website. It has been a life saver for me and for my son. I didn’t always agree with comments on the OFE group, but I could easily enough ignore what I disagreed with and concentrate on the tremendous ammount of useful information and support I found. Anyway, isn’t that the way life is? You take what’s good and filter the rest.
    By the way, I am Catholic. So not all the resources you listed were appropriate for my family. I simply use—-gratefully and thankfully—what God has led you to provide. Once again, THANK YOU!!!

    Dear Miss Maggie,
    I had not been on the computer for a number of months and do not know what happened on the OFE yahoo group. I went on the computer this evening when I found the group was cancelled.
    I know I left a note or two in the yahoo group before, but I feel sooooooooo compelled to thank you again for alllllllllll the work you have done and for freely sharing it with the rest of whoever wants it.
    Thank you so much!
    May the Lord richly bless you for your service in Him.

  6. CMD

    I forgot to ask, – what is the other yahoo group’s name that seems to be affiliating with the OFE curriculum?
    Thank you.

  7. Dawn

    Actually, there really wasn’t much bickering on the group. The recent event was very unusual; we had gone for a very long time without any problems whatsoever, but then all of the sudden, there were a couple of flare ups.

    And even when a mod asked people to be respectful and to drop the subject, people refused to do so; going so far as to start a new thread to have their say even when the old thread was deleted.

    I think, though, that the real problem is that a couple of moderators were unsure of how much authority they had to ban or put on moderated status and wanted clarification from Miss Maggie before doing anything drastic. Basically, they wanted some guidance on a game plan should another like situation arise in the future.

    Unfortunately, rather than discuss it or even ask what was going on, the group was just deleted. In fact, it was deleted AFTER the ‘bickering’ had already been resolved and everything was back to normal.

    The saddest part is that we had formed relationships and were like one big family. Not to mention, we have to look for old e-mails lying around on computers to try to rebuild the extensive links of free or cheap stuff that we used to supplement OFE. A warning would have been nice.

  8. Dawn, you are absolutely right. I acted quickly and without consulting anyone. It would have been better if I had done so. I apoligize for pain or trouble I’ve caused you and many of the other users. Thank-you for sharing your feelings and please encourage others to do so too.

    If you know of any groups that would like a link to their group on the main OFE site, please let me know. I would be happy to direct users to other groups.

    With sincere apologies,
    Maggie

  9. Lucy I’m not sure I have your email. Could you direct me where to find it please?

  10. Hi Karen, I’m so glad you’ve found it useful. I think each of us has to develop our own methods using materials that best suit our family’s values. It’s what I try to. Some days more successfully than others. 😉

  11. CMD, I’m happy you’ve enjoyed OFE. I’m not yet prepared to post links to any groups (don’t have all the links handy and haven’t checked them out as of yet.) I will keep everyone updated as I learn more.

  12. Dawn

    Note to Lucy:

    Miss Maggie’s curriculum has NOT been uploaded to the new group, although her 40 week schedules have. However, according to copyright law, the schedules are copyrighted, so she has been given clear credit.

  13. Jen in Budapset

    I just wanted the thank Miss Maggie for all the work she has put in over the years! Everyone makes fast decisions sometimes to fix a situation. I applaud you in making a decision and not just himming and hawing. In hind sight, we sometimes see a better way we could have handled things. But we are all the children of God and like all children we are still learning.

    Thank you again for the work you have put into OFE. Now sit down have a cup of tea and enjoy the day!!

  14. Sharon

    Maggie,

    I am one of the moderators Dawn was referring to who wanted guidance from you about the authority we had as a moderator. As Dawn mentioned the recent bickering was just that recent. As a result of that bickering the moderators of the group had already gotten together to form a plan on how to deal with those types of situations. Since you were the owner of the group, I felt we should get your approval. Because it was the right thing to do. Well it looks like my instance on doing the right thing was the wrong thing because you misunderstood what was going on and deleted the group. We as moderators understood that you were busy with another direction in your life and that was okay, but we did want your approval before acting. We did not want to do things against your wishes.

    As for your curriculum being uploaded to our group, it has not been. We are only trying to band together to recapture the lost files and links that were on the group you so hastily deleted.

    I’m not sure what you meant by your comment that the posts on that group were getting out of hand, could you elborate? There had been some recent ugliness, but we were dealing with it.

    When you deleted the group, at least 3 people e-mailed me personally asking what had happened. I had no answer for those people.

    I had been a member of the OFE group for a few years and I am very saddened by this situation.

  15. Jacee

    Ms Maggie, I am so thankful for your website (OFE). Obviously you did what you deemed necessary so I can find not fault in that especially if it brings you peace of mind.

    I look forward to seeing a new link listed on the website ASAP!

    As for the rest of us, this is just a bump in the road, ladies. Someone will pick up the banner and run with it. Patience is a virtue. (So Im learning daily)

  16. Beth

    I loved the yahoo group, and because of it got the confidence to begin the next school year completely old-fashioned education. I noticed this week there were no messages and when I looked into it, I found it had been deleted. I am trying to find a new way to find help and support with this curriculum, but I can’t find the new yahoo group made.

  17. Sharon, you did the right thing. I am the one who over-reacted.

    I have been feeling like the Yahoo Group was a burden to me for a couple of years now. I felt obligated to it, but had been unable to make it the priority it deserved. You and the other moderators have been faithful and honorable and you deserve a great deal of credit for your devotion. I don’t think I realized how important and vital it was to so many. As I already mentioned, I did not handle this situation gracefully.

    Sharon and Dawn, would you please post the link to your new group and if you’ll allow me to, I’ll share it with the other readers on the OFE site.

    Thank-you Sharon, for taking the time to explain things here and sharing your point of view.

    blessings, MM

    Miss Maggie, I don’t use OFE, but have gleaned many great ideas from this group. I, too, am an owner of many Home Education groups and understand that there are periods of time where they can be “the straw that broke the camels back.” Your decision was what was right for you and I applaud you for doing what you thought was right. Just as I miss your version of HBHW, I will miss the suggestions received from this group, but, we must listen to the voice in us that prompts us what to do for the benefit of our own circumstances.

    Warm wishes!

  19. Jen, thank-you for your support. I did make a fast decision, perhaps too fast under the circumstances. Like you said, I am a child of God. I still make mistakes and I’m still learning. I hate it when my mistakes affect so many good people. It’s humbling, bordering on humiliating, and makes me much more careful, realizing the ramifications of my choices.

  20. Jacee, “a bump in the road,” Yes. I like that. 🙂

  21. Beth, apparently there are a few (at least 2, perhaps more) groups that have sprung up in the ashes of the old group.

    I request that those with access to new groups please share the group addresses so that users can find them and I can visit them. I am hoping to provide links to new groups on the main OFE homepage. I have to know where they are first though.

  22. Dawn (and Lucy), I’ve always been pretty generous about sharing information with others. As long as there are no cash transactions involved, I think the more people who can be helped, the better off we all are.

    The whole point of all of this is to spread Christ’s Love to the corners of the earth. If the few things I’ve written are able to contribute to His purpose then I am honored to be of help.

    Also, remember that helping children today is an investment in the future of our world. When we are serving Him and working within our own abilities to improve the world (such as it is), then whomever gets the credit, is not so important in the long run.

    Dawn I’m glad you’ve been able to salvage things. It’s to your credit and the other moderators that you are so willing to do so.

  23. Another Beth, thank-you for understanding. We all make mistakes and I am no stranger to them. It’s hard to face the consequenses of bad decisions, but I think it’s the first step in mending fences. Better to face the consequences than dread them afterwards.

    I know HBHW was popular, but I no longer had the spark for it. Hopefully, as the years go by, I can develop Frugal Abundance into something that can be as useful as HBHW was.

    Thanks again for your understanding and support,
    🙂 Maggie

  24. Thank you so much all you provide for all of us. You are a true blessing to me and my family.

  25. Another Beth

    PS. I LOVE Frugal Abundance. I love your wit and the hominess of the sites you create. I was lucky, I had a prompting before you handed it over to copy all of the recipes. I now have a HBHW cookbook that I refer to often.

  26. Hi darlin’
    Totally off topic…wanted to let you know T. had open heart surgery 3 weeks ago. Been meaning to call you. We’re fine, he’s recovering very well….he’s a tough one….God is good.

    Love you,
    Maggie

    Hi Maggie, I am new to OFE, but familiar with Ambleside – so I understand the concept. My question is about the password for the math curriculum. Is there a standard password to enter the ‘P’ protected links or do I need to contact the developers in the UK for the password? Thanks for all your hard work!

  28. Dawn

    Dear Miss Maggie. Thank you so much for your response, and for the closure. We all appreciate it.

    The OFE mods were in touch with each other and when the group shut down, we quickly debated and decided to put up another group pretty quickly. Out of approximately 1300 members, we were only able to locate about 25 percent.

    I’m sure that many are still wondering what happened, but most importantly, worried that the OFE curriculum site will shut down. It is a big concern for many.

    We would greatly appreciate for you to link the group on the OFE page: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/3RHomeschooling/

    If at any point in the future, the curriculum site becomes too much, please feel free to contact me or any of the other mods, and we will work something out.

  29. Lori

    Hi again Miss Maggie – I am trying to choose what year I should start my oldest in. I don’t want her to think she is being taken “backwards”, but as I look at the ‘8th grade’ books, I don’t think she is prepared enough for this level. It is definately true how public school and our society is ‘dumbed down’. I didn’t realize it until I took a look into yester-year! Since you took your boys out of school at the ‘older’ ages, where did you START with them? Thanks, in advance, for any wisdom you may depart.

  30. Lori, the password is available at the Yahoo Group mentioned by Dawn. I started one of my oldest a year behind and my youngest a year ahead. Some things they do the same and some they do differently. My youngest is gifted, actually my oldest is gifted too, but in math and science more than reading and writing. I customize a lot of things for them. I don’t follow the lesson plans exactly but I do follow them for the most part. I recommend joining the Yahoo group, posted above. I think they will be best able to help you figure out what to do first, adn then what to next.

  31. Thank’s Jenn, Thanks Another Beth 😉

  32. Maggie Dear, Praying for T and for the rest of hte family too. He’s a strong man, with a strong faith and I trust all will go well. Holding yall in God’s Love.
    Hugs & Love Honey, M

  33. Dawn, thank you soooooo much!!!

    {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{3RHomeschooling}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

    I have joined and am waiting to be accepted so I can see how it all looks.

    OFE isn’t going anywhere but should it ever become a burden I promise to contact yall and give you the opportunity to take over. For now it’s pretty easy to maintain. It might be better served by a group than an individual though, and that’s definitely something worth considering. Thanks again. 🙂 Maggie

    Miss Maggie,

    I’m sorry to see the OFE group is gone, though I do understand your feelings. Even though you had moderators, you still, it seems, felt responsible for what was being posted. You seem to have a very generous and giving heart (based on you posting so much online for the rest of us, and at no charge), and I’m guessing it hurt your heart to see the bickering. The last incident (at least the last one I’m aware of) was especially bad. I try to keep out of such things, but I really wanted to tell them to grow up! I do understand you making a quick decision; I’ve done the same thing many times-maybe the way you did it could have been better, but I’m sure there is a huge burden lifted now that it is done. I had also considered unsubbing from OFE due to the abundance of off-topic posts, so in a sense I feel confirmation of that thought, in that you took care of it for me. Please don’t feel guilty, those of us that were on the list can, with a little effort, find other list to meet our needs. May God strengthen and bless you!

  35. Rachel

    Miss Maggie:

    Wishing you the best Miss Maggie: Thanks for sharing your hard work with us. I’m glad to have learned of your curriculum but to tell you the truth, I’m glad the Yahoo group is gone. I was a part of the last little “bickering” scenario and for that I apologize to you (not the big one, thank goodness, but I guess any is bad). I know that’s not what the group was originally intended for. I’m finding myself spending way too much time on these groups. I just unsubbed from quite a few of them. This whole thing has made me think about why I’m doing this in the first place. I do this for my kids, not to spend 2 hours a day on the computer reading posts from various Yahoo groups. The only groups I stayed on were the ones who limited the discussion to a specific curriculum that I’m using. Anyway, you’re a special one Miss Maggie and thanks for giving me the gift of your curriculum.

    Rachel Litmer

  36. Sharon

    Thank you for joining our group and listing it on the OFE website. We are grateful that you appointed all of us moderators on the old group and that in light of the recent bickering that was going on had banded together to form a solution to the problem. Had none of that happened then, we (the moderators and owners of the new group) would not have formed the relationship we have now. May God Bless you for all you do.

  37. Thank-you for understanding Stacy. I’ve received so much forgivness from so many. I’m not proud to have taken actions that require so much forgivness, but am filled with joy to have it given to me so freely and with so much love. For me, this is strong evidence of God’s Grace & Mercy.

    blessings,
    Maggie

  38. All is forgiven Rachel. With as much forgivness as I’ve received over the past week, it would be foolish of me not to hand it out with equal generosity. The slate is clean. 🙂 Maggie

  39. Aww Sharon, thank you. I may be getting sappy now, but I keep thinking of the bible story where Jesus says “Let he who is without sin among you cast the first stone.” I really feel like all of you have treated me with much more kindness and respect than I deserve under the circumstances. thank-you for being an example of Christ’s wisdom and love in my life.

    Blessings
    🙂 Maggie

  40. Nancy~Jane

    I was pretty new to the OFE group and was just wondering if the old emails/list is retrievable not to be reactivated but so that all the other free resources could be found? I have seen many Yahoo groups that are inactive. I assume shut down but not gone. Is it too late for that.
    I have not even had time to read all the comments here it may have already been asked.

    I also want to thank Miss Maggie so much for the OFE site and all the work she has put into it and making it available to use. What a blessing.
    Blessings

  41. Dawn

    Nancy, it is not retrievable unless Miss Maggie backed it up somewhere first. On the 3R Homeschooling group (see link above or the OFE homepage), we are working to recreate all of the wonderful links and resources.

    Some members still had archives of e-mails on their computers, so we will also be working to put together a “best of” file.

    This will take some time, but with everyone working together, we can get it done.

    HTH

  42. Nancy~Jane

    Thanks Dawn so this means I should join the 3R yahoo group then?

  43. Dawn

    Nancy Jane, Sure, if you’d like to 🙂 Our purpose is as a resource and support group to users of OFE as well as other types of similar curriculum (CM and such).

    You’re certaintly welcome to join us there.

  44. Nancy Jane, yes, you should join the 3R group.

    Nothing was backed up on my end. Hence my apologies and regret.

    I’ve visted the 3R group and heartily endorse it without a single reservation. These are a great bunch of Christian ladies doing their best to help other homeschoolers. They’re supportive, kind and understanding, plus they cover a broad range of topics. Easy to recommend on my part. 🙂 Maggie

    I just wanted to say Thank you! All the knowledge in your webpage has been such a blessing to me! I have been struggling with “what is considered modesty” for a long time! I recently met a friend who wears a covering and I have felt compelled by it. Your information and kind words about it have been so wonderful! Thank you somuch! God Bless you! :o)

  46. My pleasure Lacey, happy to oblige. 🙂

    Hi, Miss Maggie! I had unsubbed from the user group because it seemed to have lost it’s focus.

    I just wanted to say thanks for continuing to make OFE available. What a blessing it has been to our family and a couple of other new homeschooling mommas who were intimidated by the cost of curriculum!

    God bless you today and in all your future endeavors!!

  49. i left the OFE group because of all the bickering. I havent been back since. OFE has been a lifesaver for me. Thank you. All of your sites the old housewife and this new one have been. YOU are truly a gifted woman. I love looking at your site and like to glean from you as much as I can!

  50. jstme

    Wow. I am shocked. I have been looking for emails from the group for 2 weeks now. Finally today I decided to go to the group’s homepage to see what was going on and it’s gone. Wow.

    I am so disappointed that the entire group and all of the wonderful, helpful posts in the files and archives are gone forever. Wow:(

  51. Angel In NC

    DEAR Miss Maggie,
    THANK YOU! For everything. You are a blessing from God.
    Love-In-Christ,

  52. April Williams

    I am looking for the password to use for the MEP math. Is it still available?
    Thanks,

  53. Yes April, go to the new user’s group and ask them for it. They’ll be glad to share.

  54. Vickie

    I just wanted to say how glad I am I found this site. It is going to save me so much $ next school year! On the old group there was a file where a mom had put some of the books in a format where it had 1/2 page on each sheet & then you could print on the back to make a book. If anyone still has the link to this (if it’s still there) PLEASE email me. I only printed one off but it saved so much on ink & paper. Thank you all so much!

  55. Vickie, I don’t know which file you are speaking about, you can join the group and ask your question there. There are quite a few members from the original group, so someone there may know 🙂

  56. Hi Miss Maggie! I continually love your information – it seems we go through life at about the same points, I recently found I will probably need to live a gluten/casein free lifestyle, too. 😀
    Anyway, I found a site that though your boys may be a bit too old for, I instantly thought of OFE. It’s Bible lessons, completely free, with Scripture reading, memory verse, coloring picture, questions and puzzles. There are Old Testament and New Testament lessons, over 300! If you write in or call, they will send a FREE CD with all the lessons on it, as well! http://children.calvarychapel.com/site/curriculum.htm

    God’s blessings,
    Jess

  57. Cynthia

    Where is the best place to email if we find typos on the OFE site?

    Thanks.

  58. Trudi

    I also had a link update I’d like to give you, but have no idea how to contact you. I can just leave it here if that’s the best place. Thanks!

    Oh LOVE the OFE website, my son and I thank you. Also kind of miss the old Hillbilly Housewife website, but I respect your convictions to quit it.

    God Bless,

    Trudi

  59. Hi Maggie,
    I just found your homeschool website and blog today. I just wanted to share with you that I am VERY encouraged by all of the hard work that you have obviously put into this. I am going to be starting my first formal year of homeschooling with my oldest son soon, and have been overwhelmed by the choices out there. Your site will be such a blessing from the Lord! Thank you for your faithfulness. I look forward to this year!

    Help! Old Fashioned Education is not up and running and I still need the booklets for the overviews for closing out my school year. I cannot access the sight for the full curriculum for fifth and third grade.

    • I just saw it was down today, as well. Luckily I had previously downloaded all the curriculum schedules for all that was up at the time (it was lacking 12th grade). If you need the curriculum pdf, I have that for fifth and third grades.

  61. Anonymous

    Just tried to get onto the site and it’s not available anymore. Is it funding? We really neeed it back up it’s the curriculum we love and use.

  62. SAHMinIL

    Yes I was wonder about Old Fashion Education Site as well. I tried to access it and it was down. The only page I could get up was this page: http://oldfashionededucation.com/fullcurriculum.htm That is how I was able to find this blog. Is this a temp issue or is the site permanently down? I’m hoping that it’s just a temp issue.

  63. I was trying to locate your “Old Fashioned Education” Homeschool curriculum website, but was told repeatedly that it could not be found. I was hoping to find some resources on their to substitute for my son’s booklist from Ambleside.com, but was disappointed and dismayed when I was unable to pull it up. I hope that this is a temporary problem and will be fixed soon. Your letter states that the site will be available for years to come, and it would be a great loss to me if it was no longer available. PLEASE contact me ASAP and let me know if it will be fixed, thanks!!!

  64. Anna

    maggie,
    help old fashioned education has completely disapeared I was so looking forward to using it this year with my kindergartner please say you didn’t take it down!

    Same here. I just returned to homeschooling my children and have been meticulously combing through your site – only to find it suddenly disappeared!

  66. Stacy

    Miss Maggie, I believe there are a few willing to take over the site. We really enjoy the books and curriculum. Could you please contact someone in regards to this? There is a Facebook group started and the 3R group is still active.

    Thanks!!!
    Stacy

  67. Maggie

    It will be up as soon as I’m able to get the directory name to cooperate. My provider switched servers and the name of the directory I’m supposed to load everything into isn’t working the way it’s supposed to. I’m sorry for the delay. It will be up as soon as I can manage.

  68. Stacy

    Ahhhh, I see. We have all been scrambling to save pages and such. hahaha We didn’t know what was going on.

  69. Nancy

    Miss Maggie,

    I want to thank you so very much for your many, many contributions, insights, recipes, humor, convictions, and inspiration. I am so very grateful. I am thrilled to learn OFE is not lost for good. I pray your current season is full of blessings and selfishly pray that one day you may be moved to write and share again online. What a special treat. I simply love your style and wit. Thanks again and again, Nancy.

    • Gretchen

      Miss Maggie,

      I too want to thank you for all the inspiration you have given me through the years with your frugal living advice and wonderful Old Fashioned Education. Thanks for all you do and I look forward to more in the future!

    Dear Maggie,
    I’m so grateful for OFE! I have been trying to find out how to contact you or the hosting domain or anyone/anything to regain access to all your hard work and helpful information. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help or support. I am VERY grateful for your work. The fact that you’ve made it available to us all for FREE speaks volumes about your heart and spirit. Again, if I can be of any service to you in regaining access to your work, I would gladly do so. If you find you’re unable or unwilling to repost your site, would you consider giving or selling me access via e-mail? Your work is valuable and has been a great asset to me this past year and I’d like to continue being allowed the privilege of using it. Thank you so much for what you’ve given to us so far. I’m sure it wasn’t easy to compile and put this out in such an organized and thorough manner. You’ve done a FANTASTIC work!

    It should be up and running now.

    Miss Maggie, I love your website for An Old-Fashioned Education. I tried to look at the following schedule, which I would love to have a copy of to use, but they would not load at all. I even updated my java and my adobe reader. This didn’t help. Could you email me the charts for: Weekly Assignment Booklet and How to use it; Sixth Grade 40 week schedule; 1-12 booklist; and, 1-12 Curriculum Chart? I would sure appreciate it!

  73. tanya

    Hello…there are sites that aren’t active anymore and I’m having a really hard time teaching my children because of it. I’m going by the 2nd and 6th grade curriculum. A lot of the links are old and not active anymore. There’s also a concern that the material’s so old that it isn’t educational. I know what oldfashioned means…I had hoped it didn’t mean old itself because my kids aren’t responding well to this. Sorry…I had to break down and get a laptop and will be putting them in the time4learning online program. thanks for all your hard work though…I did enjoy using this site for the most part. Take care!

    Dear Ms. Maggie,
    Please help for I am not able to access OFE on the internet. It has been down since I have been trying to access it on 6/18/10. I am not able to open ANY of the “Subject” sections or from 5th to 11th Grade. Please refer to computer language I may understand – not very computer literate. It takes me to Yahoo, but cannot open any file. Your website is so resourceful, and really need to print out material—very desperate here.
    Many thanks!!!!!

  76. I think Miss Maggie has to switch servers and has been having some issues since the middle of June. Try to be patient. I’m sure she is doing all she can to get everything up and running again.

      She switched servers around this time last year. (2011). Looking at the dates of the comments shows this to be true. She hasn’t given any indication on why the site is down again this June. (2012). Seeing this happen right around the one year mark I have the feeling that she hasn’t paid the dues needed to keep her domain name up and running.

      That is just a theory. When she made this post in 2008 she said her site would be here for several more years to come. Now that it’s 2012 its also possible that she no longer want to run or keep the site active. That is also just a theory.

  77. My brother suggested I may like this web site. He was once totally right. This put up actually made my day. You can not consider simply how a lot time I had spent for this info! Thanks!

  78. “Old Fashioned Education | Frugal Abundance” was indeed extremely enjoyable and educational!
    Within todays world that’s hard to achieve.
    Thanks a lot, Otilia

  79. Can I ask if there is any schedule on OFE for 12th grade. I have searched blogs and have found no results. I have downloaded all books and files onto my computer. I’m just missing the 12th grade file. Thank you for all you do!

    I can’t seem to get to the education site . Every time I click on it I am taken to a search for and I just can’t get there. Is it me or is there a computer problem. Thanks

  81. I cannot access it, as well. I hope everything is okay.
