Ever heard the expression, "like a lump on a log"? (A favorite of certain old nuns...) Well I represent that!

Related to the talk about "Rat-sense", estimation, and such, but logs certainly deserve their own topic. In my estimation, log sense can be strengthened and developed long before it is formalized in arithmetic.
