These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

On this day in history...

  • 1847: Jane Eyre is published

  • 1866: The Reno brothers carry out the first train robbery in U.S. history

  • 1926: Babe Ruth sets a World Series record

  • 1961: Kennedy urges Americans to build bomb shelters

  • 1973: Yom Kippur War begins

  • 1989: Bette Davis dies

  • 1995: Boeing machinists strike

Now .... if you don't know what any of these mean, google it and learn something!


  1. Very cool, thanks for posting this. You need to do a post once a week (maybe Thursdays) where you do "This day in History". I always learn so much when I read your blog. :) Hope you are having a good day and your week is better then last week.

  2. Caroline, I though it was interesting, too. It just happened to be part of an email I received, but I'm guessing I can find a site that has that kind of info. :)

  3. I know! I know! I"m pretty good at Trivial Pursuit too!

  4. Queenie, I am, too. I don't always remember the facts, but deduction brings these little facts about of the cobwebs in the back of my mind. Whatever works!!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
