Member Names

<br />Just curious. How did you choose your Member Name? Some of you have interesting names!<br /><br />Mine is rather boring. Middle name, last initial.<br /><br />

Oooh...

Some people give up smoking. Others give up drinking. I think I'm going to give up checking Amazon.com. I've just found Wheelock's 6th edition...$14.67. (Only $14.66 more than I have right now in spending money!) I"m practically salivating.

Libraries

From Klewlis, in the post "Do you Use Book Covers"<br /><br />In north america *most* houses are wood. Only the old (or rich) ones are made of brick, and I can't think of any made of stone.
