Ok, let's give this a try. This is my first blog, so maybe I should just tell you a little more about me and why I am starting a blog. The title tells most of it. The "Wanderings" part is related to my travels and adventures and the "Wonderings" part is things I question or want more information about. Maybe this blog can answer some of your questions and you can answer mine. But mostly, it will be trivia, trips, and thoughts, the three T's, and I hope it makes you smile.
How about some trivia? I just read in my new Astronomy magazine an article about some of the crazy ideas people had in the past. One of the ten listed was about Haley's Comet when it arrived in 1910. The earth passed through its tail that May. By then science was advanced enough to analize the tail spectroscopically and found traces of cyanogen which is a cyanide byproduct. Well the newspapers got hold of it and blew it out of proportion (see, nothing has changed), saying that everyone on earth would be poisoned and die. . . and of course someone came up with a money making scheme to take advantage of the histeria. Gas masks sells boomed, but an Ohio man marketed a bottle of 75 "Comet Pills" for complete protection. Gee, a sugar coated sugar pill just saved the world (grin).
Sometime truth is stranger than fiction.
Hope to see you all down the road when I am off RVing.
