I always wanted to learn a third language. For some reason, I’ve always wanted to travel to Spain and to be able to converse in Spanish. I am taking an evening class, and I’m really enjoying it.
I feel like I am learning a lot. I’m also practicing my Spanish with the library’s Research Databases using Mango Languages. Mango’s online language focuses on teaching actual conversation skills. It’s like having your very own personal instructor.
It’s almost time for my favorite show of the year, The Auto Show at Bartle Hall in downtown Kansas City. For anyone who enjoys seeing all the new cars & trucks, this is a don’t miss event. It runs from March 2nd – March 6th, 2011. Several of the brands I really like have made substantial upgrades to their models this year, and I’m anxious to see the changes.

Hi, my name is Mariah, and I am addicted to sending and receiving postcards.
I wasn’t always obsessed. I used to think postcards were something you bought on vacation and sent to friends and family. What would I need with them in my daily life?
And then, I found the amazingly fun, free service Postcrossing.com. Queue my addiction!
Postcrossing.com is a postcard exchange website connecting postcard fans all over the world! In the time I’ve been a member (2 years in March), I have sent 500 cards to 64 different countries and received that many back.
One day while I was greeting customers at the Liberty Branch, a lady told me she had just finished reading the book, Hannah’s List. Since I had never read a book by the author Debbie Macomber, I decided to give it a try.
Meteorologists use this term to describe weather that is a mixture of freezing rain, ice pellets (more commonly known as sleet), and snow. It's when three types of winter weather are all happening at once due to the temperatures in the air. To me, wintery mix is code word for "Not fun to drive in!"
Okay, so what do those three things mean on their own?
