My house is still in chaos from the wallpapering adventure. I thought I would find a picture of my brother to scan and share. But where oh where can they be? It finally came to me to take a photo of the picture my brother made for me while he was still he high school. It was not a priority project (or maybe he was short on supplies) and he painted white over a couple of spots in the background. Even with these flaws I have always had it hanging somewhere where ever I have lived. Once I moved to my current location it has always had a place in my piano studio.
I am not a big number person. I count my pennies. I value a dollar. I can stretch myself to deal with things in the hundreds, even the thousands. But when it comes to a billion I am lost. And looking online to deal with today’s word I found out that I have a very good reason for my inability to comprehend a billion or beyond:If part of the world claims a billion has 9 zeros behind it but another part of the word says 12 zeros I don’t feel as bad. (And yes I know I skipped saying whether or not the concept of a million is in my range of comprehension. I’m waiting to decide on that one.)
