What a cool story that I didn't know about. Think I'll pick that up.

great review. being president would get in the way of knitting/having opinions about many things. think you'd be most effective re-doing one of those dysfunctional agencies, maybe FDA. just a thought.


Hey there,

Actually, the comment regarding the presidency was directed towards my young friend. I have no desire to engage in any more thankless tasks, at this age. The young folks can do a better job.

I will have to read this book. I recently learned there are possible slave ancestors who moved to Liberia in my background. I'm doing research about that bit of family history. This would be a good book to read to my niece and nephews.


I finally have a second to breathe! I love the tunic! It came out great and it's so sexy! I finally started posting my projects from last year on my blog. My needles are super dusty. The last time I knitted anything was in December! Can you believe it? School sucks!


Thanks for the review. I'm definitely going to check this book out. Sounds like it would make a nice addition to the class library.
