What a challenge. Makes you really work at those. Wed, 7 Mar 2007 08:50:34 EST New to the team http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x1983x5129727 Hi. I just joined this team. My name is Susan and I am from Indianapolis In. I started playing Sudoku around Christmas and have a hard time stopping once I pick up my book. Ok, so I have about 5 books around the house in different rooms. I try no to pick up my book if I have not worked out yet, it is a reward to work out. <BR> <BR> Susan <BR> <em>201</em> Tue, 27 Feb 2007 22:16:01 EST Wher is everyone? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x1983x5001519 Am I the only one here.
