TBD on Ning

Post something from history you remember from each day of the month...Each new day has something from history to reflect upon. It can be something you remember from your own past if you choose......Just have fun with it.

Discussions on subjects welcome. There may be only one subject or there could be many in one day...depends on how many people respond, but subjects will be changing as the days change, so try not to let any discussions lead into the next days discussions. Hope we can keep it going..should be interesting seeing what people come up with.Today is Jan 26th so I am posting this to start us off:

They travel by plane a lot, & we hear about celebrities/famous people more than we do the average Joe. That about sums it up for me.

I never was any good at it Quinn, but it used to amaze me how some of the little kids spoke pig Latin like it was a second language..I never knew what they were talking about....It took me a few minutes to figure out you said you used to be quite fluent at Pig Latin in your younger day.....So...You were one of the smart kids huh?
