Old history

No one could make a website, or a book, or a library or a university with all the history you will come across in your life. Frolic! Delve.
Catch it in your peripheral vision. Learn it in relation to cooking or automechanics or learning which plants came from other countries when, and why. Why were airplane plants popular with Victorian ladies and with hippies? And the Victorian ladies couldn't have called them airplane plants, so what did they call them? And why did they have them? And what does NASA think of airplane plants? They're #1 on NASA's list! But wait... that's not just history. It involves geography, home decorating, botany and the space program. Don't stop 'til you get enough.

P.S. This post was first published here in 2011. Two things:
-Thinking of what you were doing six years ago would involve some personal and family history.
-My history page is older history now; it's one of my early webpages. If you know of a history site you think might be worth adding to that page, send me a note!
