the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Because nothing rhymes with orange?

Oh, I don't know! But Marianna, from the United Kingdom, wants to know:

Why is a grapefruit called a grapefruit?

Girl's gotta google this one!

According to Wiki... it's because the fruits grow in clusters on their trees, much like grapes do on their vines. (Frequently, solving the mystery is a bit of a let down.)
