I am: "The kind of woman who, when my feet hit the floor each morning, the devil says, "Oh Crap! She's Up!"
I am trying to learn French from a wonderful instructor, his project can be found here:
Check it out and if you don't want to learn French, it's good reading anyway. He has an awesome way of keeping my attention with humor and interesting facts.
Please give him some feedback (which I'm sure will be excellent, you'll see!)
and join in on the fun. It's an interactive learning process that even me, at my old age can actually enjoy while learning.
Breagadoir est un fantastique instructeur de la langue française! (Okay I used the google translator for that sentence, pardon!)
Parlez-vous français? Oui, très peu.
(Do you speak French? Yes, very little)
A good quote on a different note:
"Doubt is to certainty as neurosis is to psychosis. The neurotic is in doubt and has fears about persons and things; the psychotic has convictions and makes claims about them. In short, the neurotic has problems, the psychotic has solutions."
Thomas Szasz (1920 - ____) US psychiatrist, educator
The Second Sin, "Mental Illness" (1973).
Here's what I'm reading today:

Can't say I have any one or two favorites. I love to read, since I knew what a book was, always walked around with my nose in a good mystery or suspense novel.
Anywhere that is really quiet and where no one is going to bother me or interrupt my reading. In bed is actually my favorite, even more so I love to read while enjoying a secluded niche in a forest or on a beach.
"ThIs Is WhAt ThE InSiDe Of mY hEaD lOoKs LiKe"
Rita Mae Brown:
"The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they're okay, then it's you."
Intelligent humor facinates me.
Peter (the Bible) e e Cummings, and a lot more.
