History Buff

Sunday, 3 February 2008

I love history. Always have. I love learning about things or events and how they fit into the bigger picture. For example, I love the timeline in Jews, God, and History (by Max Dimont) because it contains parallel timelines of Jewish history and world history.

So you can imagine how much I enjoyed reading about the evolution of Crayola crayon colours and the history of Legos (which turned 50 years old last week!). Thanks to Verbatim for pointing me to the Crayola info. I agree with her that some of the descriptive names are so wonderful!! And I was relieved to learn that Indian Red NEVER referred to Native Americans!
