Do you, like me, get a thrill learning new things daily? If you’ve read my blog, you know one of the pastimes I enjoy is discovering new facts and interesting pieces of history.
I like to share intriguing stories from our local newspaper the San Jose Mercury News, as well as from some of my favorite print and online magazines Mental Floss, the National Geographic Society or Smithsonian Magazine. Other times I find articles or facts online at The History Place, Brainy History,orDates In History.These events for today’s blog post are primarily from History Orb and Wikipedia.
While these interesting items are intriguing, they have nothing to do with my real estate business, helping people like you buy and sell homes in Silicon Valley, Calif. and beyond. I admit, they just add fun and fascination to life.
