Ms. Makers: My husband and I made the decision to raise our children to use Metric tools and measurements. Unfortunately, my in-laws are diehard Imperial users and refuse to stop trying to convert the kids. How do I convince them to respect my wishes, do we need to stop letting the grandparents babysit?

Gentle Reader: While keeping the whole family on a single system is simpler, your kids should understand their grandparents’ traditions as well. A little diversity in the workshop won’t hurt them!

We thought this song would be a fun end to this issue! Who remembers this song?

Dear Abby, by John Prine

Refrain:
Unhappy, unhappy
You have no complaint
You are what your are and you ain’t what you ain’t
So listen up buster, and listen up good
Stop wishing for bad luck and knocking on wood
