I'm no longer the lone 'blogger' my family...
My brother Joe was a history major & has started a blog called History of the Present.
I think it's a great premise since the historical causes of current events are often overlooked for the immediate aspects of a situation.
History was probably my most hated subject in school because of all the dates & memorization. It was just boring to me. Now I eat up knowledge about history with all it's personalities, stories, events, & places.
