    Greetings from the Editor
    by Carol Hall

    Greetings to all of you.....it is OCTOBER already! October.....the 10th month. That makes very little sense to me though. "Octo" in Latin means 8th....so why is that the name of the 10th month? That will give me something to ponder this month I suppose. If I run out of things to ponder....I can go to: Language Questions and waste some more time! 

    I hope you enjoy this edition of The On Ramp and spend some time clicking on the links and exploring!
