Almost always, when I've wanted to learn something, I've checked out children's books- usually good pictures and clear words.

Back from a weekend in Portland visiting my sister-in-law. It began with a trip on the Bolt Bus, a first. I even got the one dollar ticket! There was a worry that it would be a broken seat by the bathroom, but it was surprisingly swell. Especially for someone who... Continue reading

Yes, I think there's much of this going on for me, too. I hope it settles down soon!
