I love maps, maybe because I love knowing where things and places are. My kids laugh at me because I keep an atlas next to my side of the couch and at a minutes notice I can tell you what city is closest to another city or some other useless fact that only I want to know. My kids tell me to look online, don't rely on that "old" media, but there is something about a map that shows you where you are in relation to everyone/thing else. It shows you the BIG picture, not just a snapshot, and I think it is important to remember the big picture, don't you?
PS: Sorry I don't have a recipe ready for you, too much stuff going on that is out of my control. Please run over to Kathy's today and check out those who DID post recipes. Thanks
