Did you set your clocks back today? How late was it when you finally got all of them changed?
Now that that is done enjoy this week’s newsletter.

Numbers, math, fractions, equations, all of these play a very important part in our life. Human beings didn’t invent math concepts; we discovered them. The language of math is numbers, not English. If we are well versed in this language of numbers, it can help us make important decisions and perform everyday tasks. Math can help us to shop wisely, buy the right insurance, remodel a home within a budget, understand population growth, or even bet on the horse with the best chance of winning the race.
OK, so what am I getting at? A very interesting site that deals with numbers. The following link is all about probability.

“The best things in life are free”, “ There’s no such thing as a free lunch”, and many more similar quotes lead you to believe that there is always a catch that goes along with a free thing. To some extent this may be true, but this web site does it best to disprove the above quotes. Thanks to Yahoo for providing this link from August 25 that I am just now getting around to sending to all of you.
