This isn't funny!

For those of you out there that can actually comprehend math that includes numbers and letters, my hat is off to you. I have decided it is a gift and talent that I am obviously lacking. Unfortunately, I have to master it enough to get up to college algebra to finish my degree. Right now am flailing miserably in pre-algebra and our first test is tonight. For those of you who enjoy math, I expect you to at least leave the room before you break out into laughter or giggles...at any rate, my husband who is an engineer does not understand my inabilities...he writes like an engineer, so I always keep that in my arsenal ready to fire....At this point I have decided that colleges require math from majors that will probably never use it simply because they want to see who the heck will hang in there! University santioned sadism....

On the lighter side, ther trip to Tulsa was wonderful as usual. For those of you who have never been to Tulsa, you ought to go at least once in your life of you can get there. It has wonderful museums, shops and eating places. I tried sushi for the first time at a Japanese eatery, although my eating companions pointed out that technically since it was a California roll, it didn't qualify as real sushi...oh well....it's a start...

I actually taught my friend's daughter how to do the knit stitch while we were in Tulsa, so she is working away on a scarf. It is fun to teach someone something that will inspire their creativity. I have finished 2 scarves this month and will start in 2 more this week after my math test today...Right now I am still learning the basics, so nothing complicated. I want to move on to doing socks-not for the socks themselves, but for the ability to do them my way and my colors. Plus it is the act of knitting something original that I enjoy.

I am seriously considering adding a couple chickens to my menagerie this Spring. Our city doesn't allow roosters (for the obvious reasons), but we can keep up to 6 hens. I love to cook with organic eggs, so I want to try my hand at raising my own.

I have decided we are getting to a point in our house where we really need to get a new computer to replace the one that recently crashed. It is inconvenient to have to trapse down to the library for internet access and there are too many times I need one for something late at night...My question is, what are the advantages of a lap top over a stationary one (other than the factor of portability)...please feel free to give me feedback on this. My oldest son wants a laptop, for the portability...

We like to refer to the California Roll as beginnere sushi, but as you said, it's a start. Good luck with your blogging and with your sushi.
