      Remember that 'jumper' means 'sweater'.

  3. Problem only a homeschooler or English teacher would sympathize with: Shakespeare wrote the bulk of his plays in Iambic meter so when I needed an example of Iambic verse I looked in the poetry anthology under Shakespeare. Of course, the first example I found (the witches' chant from MacBeth) is written in trochaic meter. Drat!

      The non-iambic sections (songs, chants, prose passages, etc.) are often set differently in texts.

      I'm trying to make this the year I'm actually caught up with the garden. We'll see how long that lasts...

      What I find interesting is that I don't see many boy-based differences. Calvin's comment, 'Well, you don't have the most masculine of boys.' I do have bookish boys.

      I had dark brown with a purple tint once - I really liked it.
