And that reminds me that we haven’t for some time asked you to share information that you think we all need to know. So I’m asking:
Ho! What news?
Even at my relatively advanced age I manage to learn something new everyday. Today, for instance, I learned that yes, it is possible to stick one’s toes in one’s nose.
What have you learned of greater or lesser importance? Share it!
