    Back in 2005, my first year after grad school, I was in serious credit card trouble that had been building for a long time, with multiple accounts going to collections and $15,000 in debt. I made a budget for the first time in my life, moved in with my parents when the lease on my apartment ran...

    The History of 'APRONS' I don't think our kids know what an apron is. The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath because she only had a few. It was also because it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and aprons used less material. But along with...

    Just wondering if anybody knows how to delete the history of what I type into google. I noticed a drop-down arrow beside the space by google, and everything that I've looked up on google in months pops up. I want to delete it, but don't know how. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks.

    I love history, I love reading about history, going to historic sites - especially living history museums. I especially love learning about women's lives, how households were run, food was prepared, children were born and raised and how women interacted with each other as friends and family...

    Today is historic. I thought perhaps we could record some of our thoughts and observations about the inauguration of Obama. I really don't want to see this become a debate thread or a hate thread. But I think it's important to set down some thoughts. I did not vote for Mr. Obama. It wasn't...
  10. Christmas
    My dad used to have an album of Christmas music called "Country Christmas" and he'd play it every year around this time. It had a couple songs by Red Sovine on it it, and this is one of them. It only comes on a cassette as far as I know and it's pretty hard to find. I bought it one year from...

    :couch: Anyone else here a history buff? And what time period/geographic area are you mainly interested in? I was supposed to be a history major but had to change, getting a B.A. in history is still one of my long term goals though. I'm mainly interested in Japanese history (feudal and post...
