a little bit of history...

I have been reading blogs for some time now.
It's interesting reading about other bloggers heritage and quirks.
So far I've avoided posting much of anything personal about myself.
Today, in honor of my blog-switching, I thought I would post something along those lines.
Hopefully this won't be too boring... hahahahah...
