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...................

Hump Day History

This came in a newsletter today and I though it was interesting. I love the first one!

On this day, November 19, in history...

1703 - A masked man held prisoner in the Bastille in Paris died. His true identity was the cause of much intrigue, and his story became the basis of literary works by Francois Voltaire and Alexandre Dumas.

1794 - John Jay and Lord Grenville signed Jay's Treaty.

1863 - Lincoln delivered his Gettysburg Address at the dedication of the national cemetery on the Civil War battlefield of Gettysburg, Pa.

1977 - Egyptian president Anwar Sadat became the first Arab leader to visit Israel.

1985 - Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev met for the first time in Geneva.

1990 - Milli Vanilli's Grammy award was rescinded after it was discovered they didn't do their own singing.


  1. Very fascanating.

  2. How sad that I know the most about the Milli Vanilli thing! LOL

  3. MQ, LOL! I barely remember it because I didn't care. Guess I was too old to pay attention to the current music trend!

  4. You forgot the most important one....November 19, 1995: Caroline got married.



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!!!
