You Learn Something New Everyday

Cruising around on the internet, I stumbled across a reference to "guillemets" in reference to punctuation. Having never read or heard the word before, I looked it up. Ta da:

From Meriam-Webster online: either of the marks « or » used as quotation marks in French writing.


In the mail today, an art book: Grant Wood: An American Master Revealed. A friend recently sent me a postcard with a Wood image and it reminded me that I've long wanted to learn more about this iconic Iowan. PS: I love being able to buy used books over the internet!
