hi rich,

thank you for replying. i am sorry that i have not heard of that one particular software title. however, i have another software packages for children age 3-12. i will go look for it tomorrow and let you know the details.but, rich. please consider the software that i post. it's a very valuable package because all titles are full version, none sharewares. and the retail value for all titles combined is over $ 400 . if you are not convinced, with your permission, i can upload you the image file for the package.

anyhow, hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Jay! Man, that's a bummer they didn't have "Professor Mora's Dungeon Chase"! I've gone through a bunch of educational software for my older kid, and hardly any have worked. Now he plays "Quake" a lot, and he's started smoking! He was almost arrested for stealing a car with his friends, and he's gotten expelled from school when he beat up another student (he says the student took his sandwich, but he didn't have a sandwich that day! It was BURRITO DAY!!!). I'm convinced that his awful, anti-social behaviour is due to the games he's playing on the computer, like "Quake", and I'm worried. That's why I'm looking for these specialized learning titles, so Katey, our younger daughter, won't grow up like Brad! I'm seriously thinking of sending him to a boot camp and have a drill instructor shove a boot up his ass to teach him how to behave! I'd like to see the list of educational software you have, because I want to teach Katey things like shapes and colors and the dewey decimal system and how a manual transmission works, before she starts playing games like "Quake" which promotes violence and satanism and voodoo. Here are some of the other titles I'm looking for, most are Japanese or Mexican:

  • "Winchell's Hungry Thirst" - It's about this aardvark in a zoo that teaches children about relationships and poetry
  • "The Best of Zesty" - Music program that teaches kids to read sheet music
  • "Nargarciaoppa and the Fundango Spinners" - Educational game, kind of like "Whack-a-Mole", but with brighter colors
  • "Nurse Squirm RayGun" - Program shows kids about all the different types of animals and flowers. Also shows kids about pesticides and garden upkeeping. I showed Brad his first rake on this game!
  • "Lick Parade" - Kids can learn about real life by working in a "virtual" parking lot

Well, if you have any of these titles, I'd be more than interested. As for sending me the image file, I'd like to do that, but my server won't accept those files in e-mail, and blocks out all e-mail attachments. I found this out when one of my friend's tried to send me a scanned image of Pat Buchanon, and the server and my e-mail got all messed up! But thanks for offering! I'll ask my wife about getting the software bundle (how do you get $400 of software and sell it for $39.99? I certainly hope it's not stolen!).

hi rich,

i am sorry to hear about Brad. i know how you feel, and i feel the same way about some of the popular games on the market nowadayz, and i find it necessary to teach youngsters from right to wrong. hopefully Brad will learn from his mistakes. i will try to find the titles you requested, and i will try to dig out what we have for children 3-12. and, don't worry, Rich. i want to make a little money before i get marry, but stealing is not what i had in mind ... ^_^ but stealing a wife might be a different story ... haha

just kidding
