Hi Jill

I just think of a metre as 39 inches.  I pretty much have the metres down pat - its the grams, cms, etc. that throws me.  I like Kay's suggestion tho and I'm going to measure my body parts.  Maybe I'll feel better about them in metric.

DH grew up with metric but has mastered the English (is that imperial?) system and has tools in both.

Zone 5/6a
