    Surely I'm not the only one who reads Wikipedia articles for fun. Am I? *crickets chirp*

    I'm always on the lookout for interesting articles, feel free to post interesting or not so interesting articles you've been reading about.

    I'm always fascinated by things in the West (Western U.S.) and Southwest and traveling, and of course history. My most recent articles I've read were the California Trail here:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Trail

    And the Donner Party, I was just looking for weight loss tips, honest. I'm not morbid. Okay maybe I am.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donner_Party

    The old Spanish Trail
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Spanish_Trail_(trade_route)

    And Jedidiah Smith

    Embarrassingly - Cotton-Eyed Joe https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rednex

    I'm not quite sure why - I think it had somehow popped up into You tube suggestions whilst trying to show my son some of the "interesting" music of the 1990's. :blush:

    Okay, I skimmed part of this article, just to figure out what the connection was between that and a song I learned during my first year of organ lessons back in 1975.

    I used to surf Wikipedia for fun, but now I use it to look up some detail I need for posting or in my story-writing.

    Last thing I read after I saw this earlier today was:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bohemian_waxwing
    (the Norwegian version)

    If I look at my current history I see Delta(the letter), Postmodern Architecture, Terry Farrel(architect), Terry Farrel(actress(I found out she's married to Adam Nimoy!)), Goldfinger(architect and then movie), brutalism, Le Corbusier. Before that Eurofighter and Rafale, the Electorate of Cologne... and so on.

    I love reading about illegal immigrant Americans in California.

    And again.
