    Here's a brief snippet from this article: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47543036

    According to the charging documents, Ms Huffman made a "charitable contribution" of $15,000 (£11,500) to participate in the scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter.

    She allegedly arranged to use the scheme a second time, for her younger daughter, before deciding not to do so.

    Ms Huffman was charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. She was secretly recorded discussing the scheme with a co-operating witness.

    The papers said the co-operating witness met with Ms Huffman and her husband, the actor William H Macy, at their Los Angeles home and explained the scam to them. The witness said the pair "agreed to the plan". Mr Macy was not indicted.

    Hummm...I wonder whatever happened to the day they could just fund a hospital wing or something to get their kids into these colleges? It makes me sad that Lori Loughin is a part of this...she was one of my favorites. :(

    I guess they wanted their kids to appear smart instead of people knowing their idiot kid only got in because they bribed the school.

    Hi guys,
    I've been MIA. On Friday morning I got a call that my son was in a serious accident. We've been at the hospital nonstop and now he's home with us. He can't walk for a minimum of 8 weeks. He has 9 pelvis fractures and broken ribs. He is lucky to have made it. If someone tells me how to post my own pics on here I'll show you some pics of the car/accident.
    Positive vibes appreciated.

    I'm sure @Flora will walk you through the posting pics (I would go to one of those online sites and save the URL https://imgbb.com/) but just wanted to ask how old your boy is and what happened. A parents worst nightmare. I'm glad he is on the mend!

    Sorry to hear that! That's scary. Hope he has a speedy recovery!

    I use Imgur. You can upload your pictures in Imgur. You don't need an account with Imgur I believe. Once that's done, you can right-click, copy the image address and click on the picture icon here next to the smiley face icon and insert the URL there.

    I'll try and figure out the picture thing.
    We aren't sure what happened just yet. He was on his way to work, it was approx. 5:30 in the morning and the next thing he remembers is getting pulled out of his vehicle by EMS and taken to the trauma center. He works at a Starbucks right next to a Level 1 Trauma Center and he was only about a block from each.

    @Flora there is another version of that fake/real image hit floating around it starts at $1 and if you're any good at it you go to the full task. I started out strong then had a long string of incorrects so I gave up and returned it.
