Sometimes I come across intriguing stories while reading our local San Jose Mercury News, Mental Floss or Smithsonian Magazine. Other times I find articles or facts online at The History Place, Brainy History,Dates In Historyor the National Geographic Society. Today’s collection of facts was found at History Orb.
While these interesting items pique my curiosity, they (usually) have nothing to do with my real estate business, which is helping people like you buy and sell homes in Silicon Valley, Calif. and beyond. I admit, learning new facts just adds fun and joy to my brain, soul and life.

1993 – Michael Jackson performed during the Super Bowl XXVII halftime show and unlike many previous years, he was the only performer in the entire halftime show.
