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!

We just don't measure up!
The elephants on this card (and the writer who sent it) wonder
Why does the USA not convert to the metric system?
We were supposed to... some time ago! Whatever became of that initiative? I remember studying the metric system, but it was more like a curiousity than something that would have an impact on my actual life.
The only everyday item that seems to have been affected is the "2-liter bottle" of soda.
What DID become of the drive to convert to metric?
