It's like dictionaries ...

Sunday, October 24, 2010

I love dictionaries. But I noticed many years ago that it sometimes takes me an hour to look up one word. Oh, yeah, I know how to spell it. But I always get sidetracked and spot another word I’ve always wondered about, then another, which leads to another, and before I know it, an hour has gone by and I’ve forgotten what I was looking up in the first place!

I’m the same way with encyclopedias, web searches and maps … MAPS! Have you ever used Google Earth when looking up a map of someplace? Ever clicked and dragged across the Red Sea? I have. (The little guy does NOT walk on water!) I’ve clicked and dragged over jungles in Africa (now there’s a drag - no signs of civilization … only trees), and the Panama Canal, which is interesting because you can see ships, plus they have a webcam. I’ve actually done a fair amount of traveling: 42 states in the US, several Canadian provinces, Aruba, Puerto Rico and several European countries, but my virtual travels are unlimited! In fact, I actually stumbled onto the SP website while searching for some nutritional info.

I’ve traveled a long way to get here and write this blog on Sparkpeople, and I’m very glad to be here! This website and all its members are a true microcosm of the world. I’m reading everything here my mouse can click on and I find I have a lot to learn about healthy living. But my interest in everything and anything knows no bounds, so I know I’m in the right place. Thank you for the warm welcome from so many members … I know I’ll enjoy your company.

Now if I could just remember what word I was looking up …
