However, you can check out http://www.braingle.com./ This is a site with all sorts of brain teasers and puzzles.I especially like the fractured phrases section. It presents garbled phrases that, once straightened out, are well known sayings. I used to use this when teaching folks to cut and paste on the computer. It made a boring subject more tolerable.
Check it out. Bob----- Original Message ----- From: <james.homme@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

Hi, A couple of years ago now, my best friend passed away. His little girl really likes this sort of thing. Do we have any books in the collection with this kind of stuff, or fun facts or trivia that might interest people who are somewhere around nine years old? I'd like to read it and have funwith her when I see her. She is so quiet. I never know what she's thinking,and I'd like to help her if she needs it. Thanks.
