Am I the only one who prefers the american system? I could never understand the metric system at all. Doesn't matter that it's easier to convert I still can't figure it out. But then again, I need my fingers to to do math. Can't do math in my head, ever.Teresa ~ ma$$hole living in the Carolinas.

Neobunny, you are not alone. I, too, prefer customary measurement. I'm perfectly capable of making the conversions using either system but, for whatever reason, customary is always easier for me. Teaching it, however, is a nightmare. Weedy Road, we're in the same boat as you. My kids are looking at me like I'm some crazy mad woman speaking a language they don't undestand.
