Reading a historic book, listening to people tell a tale, watching a movie/show, its like uncovering a new and rich story, that helps ya understand where and why we be what and how we are and behave. Yas do know that there is a relatively 'new' history section here in CDF?
"Amen!" on the history comments, Shadow! In one of the genealogy forums (?) I subscribe to, someone suggested we write about which ancestor from that area we would most like to have for Thanksgiving dinner, what we would ask and why. It has been fun both writing and reading those stories this past few days.

I didn't know there's a history section in CDF! I'm about to check it out. If anyone else wants to, here's the link: History - City-Data Forum: Relocation, Moving, Local City Discussions
