    My 8-year-old niece showed me this site: www.freerice.com.

    It's sort of a vocabulary test and you can change the topics to geography, art or a few other languages.

    It's rather addicting, and every correct answer sends 20 grains of rice to an impoverished country.

    20 grains? They just sent it to the capitol building, or what?

    I just did 1,000. This is fun.

    Up to 2,500 in grammar ... feeling empowered and learning. Fun!

    I'm up to 3,700 and it's starting to frustrate me. I think I've teased my brain too much for the moment. I suck at Geography, but I couldn't make myself stop.

    I got up to about 4000 before I got tired of it.

    I'm only up to 2180, but plan to play later tonight. It's very addicting.

    I could do the basic math all night without missing, I believe. Wish they could have gone higher than 10 levels on that.
