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

Thursday Trivia??

Here is a little trivia tidbit that came across my screen today:

Here's an important first that's about to happen -- the first female legislative majority in the nation, in January 2009.

Where is this progressive state in the union, you might ask? Trend-setting California? Chic Colorado? Liberal Massachusetts, birthplace of Susan B. Anthony? Or perhaps Ohio, home of sure-shot philanthropist for women's rights and other causes, Annie Oakley? No. Not one of these.

Here are three hints:
1. It's the state with the largest legislature in the United States.
2. It's the state with the the fourth-largest English-speaking governing body in the world.
3. It's the state famous for its early primaries every four years.

Your guessed it, the quiet female revolution will take place when the New Hampshire Senate re-convenes in January and, for the first time in the history of the nation, will have a female majority. As such, it's the first legislative body to be truly reflective of the female majority in this country. It only took 232 years to get to this point ...


Interesting!
