I went to a Montessori school and I was to do all my work in cursive. When it came time to do standardized tests later on in public schools I was the only one who could write the academic acceptance statement in cursive like we were told to.

What happened to my comment? I think it was the first one. I was surprised that R&L read my question.

AiryKritter on January 25, 2021 at 9:12 pm

Weekly vlogs are back! WOOT!!! Spread the word. :D

Knee to nipple batwing doors okay in the old west not okay when you have to stop at a rest stop in the midwest lol

I honestly think cursive is unnecessary. Even an average signature from someone who learned cursive is barely considered cursive most of the time tbh

yeah car blog!!! best Rhett and Link blog too! go mcmoa! even watched mythical kitchen!! great start for 2021

My mom recently gave a graduation card and money to a relative, and when he opened it, he said "I can't read this, it's in cursive!" in a rather annoyed voice. I think everyone should learn cursive, if not to write with it, at least to read it. There is a lot of history written in cursive that are national treasures. But they are too busy confusing kids with Common Core Math LOL

I love the CarVlog! The cursive question was great, and I hate to see it die out because it isn’t being taught. Your point about writing/signing prescriptions, and signing charts is a lost art as it is all digital these days. Very few prescriptions are hand signed much anymore, especially in large healthcare systems like Kaiser, Sutter, etc. I am sure there are plenty hometown doctors that sign their own, but they are quickly being outnumbered due to laws that govern patient documentation, billing, etc. Hoping they at least teach kids how to sign their names, and have an elective of cursive. Keep up the great work of entertaining the MBs.

I'd love it if I could cast this onto my tv. I'd watch all the stuff all day if I didn't have to watch it on my phone or computer.

I’m a teacher and while a lot of states aren’t requiring students to learn cursive, many schools still teach it around 2nd or 3rd grade. The children usually are excited to learn this as it makes them feel more grown up. However, they tend to forget about it and go back to print the next school year, at least that is what I’ve observed. Schools try to teach it though because it has many benefits. Not only does it allow students to read historical documents, write more efficiently and sign their names, but studies have shown it engages both sides of the brain. Neither typing or print do this. It helps with fine motor skills, tends to be easier for people with dyslexia and some other learning disabilities, but it engages part of your brain that builds memory. So, if you need to remember something, such as when you are taking notes for a class, it is best to take notes in cursive.

My daughter's are in 7th and 3rd grade and have not been taught cursive. I think its weird that its not taught anymore. i only write in cursive, I hate printing.

Ashley Love on January 16, 2021 at 6:03 am

My 3 girls refer to their v@******'s as a nana.

Pamela Warren on January 16, 2021 at 2:20 am

I think the cursive thing depends. My daughter was taught in grade 3 (a few years ago).

Malia Stoner on January 16, 2021 at 12:15 am

Cursive is good to know for reading historical documents. And things.

Michael Yournett on January 16, 2021 at 5:25 am

this is awesome! I love these! happy new year!

amy Petrica on January 16, 2021 at 3:32 am

OMG! My question was the first one of 2021! After I got over the shock of hearing my name I couldn't remember what I asked. Both pronunciations are fine BTW. I agree kids should know how to write in cursive. Did you guys print Hell and Dam on your desks or do it in cursive? Between my Q and a possible vlog tomorrow my rainy Friday has gotten brighter.. Thanks guys!
Happy New Year.

Laurie Owen on January 16, 2021 at 3:22 am

I was taught cursive in grades 1 to 4. In 5th grade teacher gave us the opportunity either print or write in cursive. I chose print. Turns out it was a terrible terrible choice as now the only thing I can still write in cursive is my signature. And sadly it looks like a childs!🙄

Kristina Glasgow on January 15, 2021 at 5:03 pm

So happy to hear we're getting a vlog!

Erin ONeill on January 15, 2021 at 4:53 pm

Did anyone else catch that it said Januray 2021? Must be my overactive editor brain.

Kristina Glasgow on January 15, 2021 at 5:03 pm

Saw it.

Robin Voiles on January 15, 2021 at 3:40 pm

That's good to hear about the new vlog; I'm looking forward to watching it. Those are always enjoyable.
Also, thanks for the lesson on saloon doors. I learned something new, and we all know that useless trivia is some of the most satisfying.

Natalie Jones on January 15, 2021 at 10:41 pm

YAAAAAAAY! 🎉

Nathan Moore on January 15, 2021 at 10:24 pm

Carpool vlog never gets old!!

Victoria Lawrence on January 15, 2021 at 10:06 pm

how can we get #findmynanaapp trending without getting in trouble somehow? lol

Jessica Mueller on January 15, 2021 at 1:45 pm

Eeeeeeeeeeee!!!😁😁😁

Nikki Smith on January 15, 2021 at 9:41 pm

The refrigerator question went down a road I didn't expect lol

Erica Darnell on January 15, 2021 at 9:37 pm

I squealed over that vlog being released tomorrow. Squealed like a little girl. 🥰
I write in cursive pretty much exclusively, the main reason being the fact that my handwriting has gotten sloppier and sloppier over time and my cursive is just more legible. My print looks like it was written by a 9 year old boy. 🥴
Man, I'd just be happy with a fridge that didn't see the 90s. 🥺 I guess I shouldn't complain. My fridge may be old and incredibly impractical but at least it works. Kinda. If I hold my mouth right. 😂

Sarah LaFlamme on January 15, 2021 at 1:10 pm

I love the cursive question! I definitely think it's important to be taught, at the very least, how to read cursive. Majority, if not all, historic documents are in cursive. Would be a shame to lose our ability to research and read such documents. I know it has helped me personally with my genealogy.

Robin Voiles on January 15, 2021 at 3:35 pm

I think this is probably the single best reason to learn it at this point. It's not really needed now in the same way that it used to be, but there's just so much history documented that way it'd be a shame to lose that.

Sarah LaFlamme on January 16, 2021 at 12:11 am

💜💜 I'd love your comment if I could.

Leena Pentti on January 15, 2021 at 1:09 pm

It would actually be really nice if all the elderly folks around my home worked as routers. If I'm not mistaken, they'd be 5G, and my internet connection could use extra speed.

Kids not learning cursive anymore is very unfortunate, because the skill helps you with hand-eye coordination. Not only artists and crafters, but also surgeons, benefit from developing good hand-eye coordination.

Karen Mauck on January 15, 2021 at 1:06 pm

So is the new vlog gonna be a demonstration of the Find My Nana app? Woohoo LOL I'm dying

Karen Dunn on January 15, 2021 at 1:04 pm

That was the Daddest car vlog ever and I absolutely loved it.

Burt Bacon on January 15, 2021 at 1:03 pm

Why would Rhett pull over when Link was searching for saloon door info? I have some thoughts, anyone have ideas?

Kay Shepard on January 15, 2021 at 4:55 pm

As someone who also gets horrifically motion-sick looking at a phone in the car, I recognize that move for what it probably is. The number of times I've had to say "If you want me to look that up, you're gonna have to pull over" is absurd, lol.

Sarah LaFlamme on January 15, 2021 at 1:11 pm

The Neal motion sickness.🤣

Rachel Black on January 15, 2021 at 12:57 pm

I kept waiting for Januray to be some inside joke...but I think it's a typo there guys in the intro!
So happy to have a blog coming!

Jacob Rosof on January 15, 2021 at 8:56 pm

So happy about the vlog tomorrow!

Laura on January 15, 2021 at 12:51 pm

hahaha just cried laughing at Rhett: "You can use her as a wifi router"

Anna Baldwin on January 15, 2021 at 12:45 pm

NANA WOO WOO BUTTON I'M CRYING HAHAHA

Rachel Black on January 15, 2021 at 12:58 pm

Reminded me of the Sims!

Anna Baldwin on January 15, 2021 at 1:04 pm

Hahahaha simlish sounds!!

Kirsty J on January 15, 2021 at 12:40 pm

Soooo excited!

Shaelynn Peters on January 15, 2021 at 12:37 pm

A vlog! Yes! I loved the vlogs, I hope we eventually get more.

Tamra Jackson on January 15, 2021 at 12:36 pm

“Don’t get your hopes up” Too late Rhett, too late

Bri Anderson on January 15, 2021 at 12:35 pm

Best news of the week!!

Danielle Renee Smith on January 15, 2021 at 12:46 pm
