    That's awesome, Stephanie!

    Now here is my latest math problem that I need help with (kidding, truly): I'm going to make a raised bed garden with 8x8x16" cinder blocks, 2 blocks high, staggered/interlocking, and I don't want to have to cut them. I want it to be about 3' x 8'. How many blocks do I need and what size can I make?? Actually, I think I might have figured it out. We'll see when I go to put this whole thing together! ;)

    jdouglas -- Right out of high school, I was a math major at NCSU. I eventually figured out that, while I enjoyed numbers in high school (thus the major in math), I quickly ran out of numbers in college-level math. After a few years in the work world, I went back to school to get an accounting degree. THAT'S when I started working with numbers! :-)

    Stephanie, so glad to find a math geek! I am a math disaster and often need to get help from those more gifted than I when figuring things out! :p

    Thanks for the code, Vlynn! Just gave it a thread all its' own. :-)

    Thanks, Maalp. :-)

    Stephanie - I am impressed. I didn't even think about the geometric print on the dress.

    Thanks for the info Earlychd99!

    Faye, explain to your youngest that I'm a math geek, so really appreciated both the geometric print *and* the necklace!

    Thanks for the GB info Stephanie! I appreciate your insight. And my youngest daughter thought I was crazy to wear the abacus. I'll show her your comment. lol

    Love the abacus necklace, Faye!

    BTW, I have some info on the GB issues, and will share those later today. I had surgery 15 yrs ago, in my 40s, after losing 27 lbs. Yep, the age and weight loss are both critical to the story. :-)
