That was great, Kim. I recently saw a demonstration of drop spinning by a representative of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers museum. She said that the female immigrants from the British Isles, particularly the Welch and Scots, would spin as they walked across the plains to Utah using these simple but effective devices. The whole time she was standing and talking she was spinning away without giving it a second thought.
