Good day Speakies!!! So, hopefully we all made it to Tuesday together. I know that first day back can be a bit rough, but it's all behind us now and we can move forward with the week. I know my post as of late have been more informative than funny stories or personal stuff, but I enjoy doing the history stuff because i learn something new everyday and you never know when the useless knowledge you read on my post may be an answer to a trivia question!!! So, get out your paper and pen!!!
