History - Recent and not so much ...

  1. Was posting on another thread about a website that shows an outrageous Christmas light show that is synchronized with a Trans-Siberian Orchestra song ...

    Wizards Of Winter Video


    And I mentioned that the guy's power bill must be outrageous.

    Then wanted to comment on the Northeast Power Blackout of 2003

    Great Northeast Power Blackout of 2003

    But didn't want to go off topic ...

    And on another thread someone brought up the Challenger explosion

    BBC ON THIS DAY | 28 | 1986: Seven dead in space shuttle disaster



    And so I thought maybe a thread on historical events would be worthy of doing. It could also be about positive events ...

    I wasn't sure about where to start this thread so mods, feel free to move this ...

    please pardon my incredibly dense mind - but a thread about "what things worthy of doing" ??

    i'm not opposed to the idea - i'd just like to know what it's about?! [and how/where i may contribute given my historian hobby]


    cheers,

    :yeahthat: Thanks Steph


    For example, many of us were around when Ford was in office as VP, and through Watergate, and now, flash forward, Ford has passed and what a lot has happened since then!

    But I imagine there's a thread on his passing so I won't go into it now... There are also several threads lately on why it's neat/weird/sad to be OLD! Hah a ha
