Some Chinese proverbs ~ my chinese notebook . . ..

Sometimes in my pursuit to find a solution to the problem of grasping Mandarin I stumble across some cool things like a new artist (Beilei or Jason Chen) or a fun website that expands my vocabulary (if only I could make it all stay in my head) and then there are sites made by people like me who also are trying to make sense of Mandarin, and My Chinese Notebook is just that.
