Following the Yukon Quest has been exciting! And finally the gates are open.
The mushers hit the starting line yesterday 🙂
The race is on!
Mr. Jé and I, envious of the adventurers, decided we’d go to the Yukon and embark on the Quest ourselves (in our dreams). Off to the races 🙂
On your mark, get ready… GO!

I was reminded today via CBC radio that studies prove learning and speaking a new language is a bonus for your brain.
In researching more on this I found a headline that must be shared:

Did you know that 1 out of 3 words in English come from French? That’s right!
It stems from Guillaume le Conquérant’s reign in England and the Norman french he brought with him, from the French’s love of food, and many other points in time of travel and trade.

Language is fun! Enjoy 🙂
Thanks for the share Mr. Simon

I am using it to learn Spanish, and I love it.
