Geographica: Asian Rivers

     How about a geography quiz on Tuesday?  Yesterday was a whirlwind, as Mondays so often are.  My mom and I were laughing on the phone over our need for a recovery day from our "day of rest."  Maybe the contrast between the two days is exhausting?  In any case as I piled through laundry, edited a letter to NASA, read books, weeded the garden, took my walk, cooked dinner, did some shopping and made time to show up at Bible study, I did not leave time for typing up the quiz.  This morning I complained to Bryan that I would never be a great blogger because I just can't post every day, which so many think is important to success, he reminded me I am a wife, a mother, a homemaker first and foremost and blogging is a very limited role in life.  Having my guilt thus assuaged, I blog today, guilt free.

Quiz:  Asian Rivers
1.  Which major Chinese river begins in Tibet and flows through southern China before emptying into the East China Sea?
