    Nice work, Gregg. It's always nice to know that we have a talent/ability that we may have initially been unsure of.

    catherine - your post makes me think of Tammy. I hope she is well.

    I "attended" a lecture by two local reference librarians who spoke about and showed slides on many genealogy sites and helps. So I learned about some really helpful ones I had not heard about before, or been reticent about trying because I hate having to sign up for access to sites---it just means more email. Some of these did not require a login.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Interesting. May I ask why an abacus?

    Okay, just found the answer in the Hobbies thread. Have fun!

    My husband is learning, too. As he said, it makes you think differently, which is a good thing as we get older.

    I remember hearing as a little kid that abacus users could calculate so quickly, and then when calculators came in, that they could to the abacus faster than a calculator (I'm doubting that) and I always wondered how it worked. Just curious, I guess.
