We look in our bathroom for help in figuring out what's happening in the world


This is a great way to follow world news and where it's happening

 It was love at first sight when I saw this shower curtain at Bed, Bath and Beyond.  It's a big map of the world that's easy to read and really helps when you're trying to follow happenings in the world.  

Before we got this, we'd have to either pull out our computer or an atlas or a faded National Geographic map if we could find it.

Most recently, we've been following happenings in the Ukraine.  When the Russians took over Crimea we were able to pinpoint where it was right away.

I can't wait for our four year old grandson to see it.  He is growing up in Eastern Europe and has travelled to several countries.  Now he can see them on a big map everyday when he takes a shower.

When we make our baby-boomer move to a smaller house, the shower curtain goes with us.  It has become indispensable.
