this is just a test…

Can you name all 50 US states in 10 minutes? I could, but it wasn’t easy (it took me 8:05 minutes) and I had to cheat for the spelling of Massachusetts.

I’m lucky if I can remember if a particular street is east or west of me. And if you take me out of the San Fernando Valley or my comfortable neighborhoods, I can’t even remember which way is north, south, east or west.

The brain, she be a-goin’…
