Living Language

Living Language

Our sponsor this week is Living Language, a different sort of language learning service from the fine folks at Books on Tape:

In today’s world, effective language learning is more necessary than ever, whether patrons desire to become savvier travelers, get ahead in business or at school, or better communicate with other community members. Founded in 1946 and developed for the U.S. State Department to train overseas soldiers and diplomats during World War II, Living Language lets you learn like an adult. No gimmicks, no tricks.

Happy Birthday Bill

It's my birthday! And Gene celebrated, as is our tradition, by drawing the strip today. And rather adorably, I don't mind saying. Thanks, Gene!

P.S. For my birthday I want lots of new readers for my my other comic Not Invented Here, a different sort of workplace comedy than Unshelved.
