Thank you for the welcome to the left handers group I hope to contribute a bit, and also see what is posted. I am very busy with my masters degree so contribution may be limited. But my grandma, father, and I were all left handers. When I was a kid my kindergarten teacher was still from the left is sin category and in class forced me to use my right hand and then at home my parents forced me to write left handed, from this my handwriting has become atrocious. But my grandma, and I wish I knew what it was belonged to a left handed society, they would send out a magazine or newspaper with left handed facts and stuff of that nature from it she told me that there was only one left handed president to serve more than one term in office and I do believe that is or was Bill Clinton.
Again thanks for the welcome and I cant wait till I get more time to check it out.
