Thought for today

This semester I am taking a variety of classes one of which is U.S. History and culture. One of the interesting things that I have taken away from this class is the culture of the Native Americans tribes. For instance did you know that the women had the final say in any trade made by her husband. On top of that women were the ones who divided the food between the tribe. But the most interesting thing I learned was that most of the tribes traced the genealogy through there wife's side of the family.

Trying something new

Right now I'm sitting in the library at school ''studding'' for my quiz in geology at 11 and I needed a break. So I'm trying to make a post using my palm. It takes a little getting use to and is not as fast. Now for something new I call it the fact of the day. Did you know that the largest diamond found in the world was about the size of a bowling ball. Where is it now? It has been cut several times the largest piece is the size of a tennis ball. Currently adorns the top of the royal scepter of England.
