I love basketball. But my career pretty much ended in 9th grade when I was 5'2" tall and had glasses--and though a pretty good shooter, I got cut from my junior high basketball team. Finally I got my growth spurt, and was about 5'10" as a senior where I tried out for my high school team. I made first and second cuts, but was the final person cut from the team and I've never fully recovered.
The worldwide reach of the internet never ceases to amaze me. Earlier this week, after the announcement of our World Collection, containing genealogical data from more than 30 countries, I received an internal company email that said:
We now have subscribers from 48 countries. We increased our country count by 5 in January. The bolded countries are new in January.
