Blog - For the First Time (or the last time)

This is a great blog, "For the First Time (or the last time)". There is great deal to learn from this blog. There were a few articles that I enjoyed reading. There are articles such as "1984: First college dunk shot by a woman", "1978:" First erso n born in Antarctica", "2094:"First person born on the moon" (!!!), "2002:First PC Program for US students", "2003: last flight of the Concorde." "and "1931" First Electric Guitar".

Maybe I should have moved to Utah. It's the first state to switch to 4 day work week in August.

It's nice learning all these new things about "firsts" and "lasts". Did you know that Prior to the official name of "White House" it was officially called "Executive Mansion" until President Theodor Roosevelt had the words "White House-Washington" engraved on the stationary in 1901? This is a favorite fact of mine.

Before it was called The White House, people also referred to it as "President's Palace", "Presidential Mansion", or "President's House". This "House" has a lot of rich history, There was a fire and it had to rebuilt additional rooms were added and more. The blogger posted this on Jan 15, 2009.

Anyhow, check out this blog!
