Because I'm a geography whiz
This one might just make my husband laugh. Out loud.



I picked it up from Everyday Mommy, who picked it up from someone else.

Wanna play? Here's the link (or check out these Google Hacks.)

I see a couple of states you missed - Washington and Oregon. We'd love to have you!

OOh -

and my WV is =sqkcim - which is a small town near the Olympic Mountains (Sequim)

And my hubby was in both places this summer (even my daughter);). I thought about you when I was marking that map (lol). Cool, huh?

how did you make it small enough to not mess up your blog? I tried it and it was huge!

This is a wonderful link. I plan to share it with my school-teacher friends. I had never seen the map "colored-in" with the states I had visited...only used push pins. Quite a difference in the way it looks.

That's really cool Robin, thanks for sharing.

This was fun - and very telling. I'm posting it on my blog tomorrow.

To answer Malissa and anyone else who doesn't know, just click the map, and drag the boxes on the corners or the right middle side towards the left. It's kind of elongated, anyway, so I thought it looked better after I resized. I wonder if any of y'all have been to all the states.

Hey swampwitch, I like to welcome the newbies :).

I'm not a geography whizz either, but I'm wondering how you got to Maine without going through New Hampshire, unless of course, you flew.

she jumped over it.

I've not had a chance to do that yet... as I've been out of my mind with Technorati. I have no techi abilities whatsoever... but I've added it to my blog and I lost it temporarily out there in the sphere somewhere.
I may have to add a State of hysteria on that map to color in

Fun exercise! My States map was fairly red (except for the mid-west: who visits the dakotas? must have family there) but my Country map was pitifully gray with just a few red spots. By the way, my geography lesson of the day - I didn't know that Greenland was considered North America. Yes, I'm an ethnocentric and dreadfully ignorant of international affairs.

I've been to a lot of the states. I might have to work on it later.

I really don't know if I can do the book meme. I've been thinking about it, and I get so stumped, thinking that I'm going to pick the "wrong" favorite or best book. I'm going to keep thinking, and I do love "book chat," but if you never see it, that's why.

However, I did just post the map thing and linked to you as my first sighting of it!

YAY! Someone who's been to West Virginia!

Married to my college sweet-heart :)...three GREAT kids I'm not selling to the circus today...I LOVE to laugh (& smile often)...love to read & cook, hate to shop (unless the store is very small and doesn't leave me dazed and confused). I'm scared of flying so although I'd like to travel more, I don't.

I've been pleasantly surprised to find life in my 40s to be an amazing time of transformation & discovery--of self, others, creation and the Creator.

Here's a partial explanation for my Blog title. I think it'd be cool if they really existed.

A Pensieve is a stone basin.... [One] can extract his or her own memories and place them in the Pensieve, especially to relieve the mind when it becomes too flooded with information. Anyone can examine the memories in the Pensieve, which also allows viewers to fully immerse themselves in the memories stored within...

A Pensieve first appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire...

For the complete explanation, see

It might not be "all about me", but I'm definitely...
In my mind's eye I'm a child again...
If the SBC had only known...
