- Me, Myself, and I
- I'm a history buff with a fascination for the little details who reads endlessly, researches fanatically, and writes obsessively.
A college focus of Interior Design spiced with English and History gave me a desire to design my own castles and then populate them with people from scullery maids to dukes.
My taste in reading is as diverse as in my writing. Anything from romance, historical or contemporary, to science-fiction/fantasy and mystery.
- Eclectic: from Pop to Country, Celtic to A Capella.
- Harry Potter(1st), Princess Bride, Shawkshank Redemption, Hunt for Red October
- Better to Play them than to watch them. Better to sleep through them than to play them
- Happiest When
- Listening to Music and Reading or Writing.

Knowledge is Power--or so we've been told. But then we are also told "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing". So how do we evalutate when we have more than a "little" knowledge? That we have "enough" to speak/write well on a subject?
Too often today, we search the web for that quick dose of knowledge without any awareness of who is offering up the information.
One of my favourite websites to demonstrate this is: http://www.suite101.com/articles.cfm...
Christine Inge published a set of webpages on Regency Era England several years back that still are available on the web. And I do not say that all her facts are wrong...but with the egregious(easily identified) errors given, it puts all her other research in doubt.
on page two Inge writes:
"Life in general settled down considerably after Prinny's daughter Victoria ascended to the throne."
A simple check of an English history book or a genealogy chart would tell any seeker that Victoria was Prinny's(George IV) niece not daughter.
There are many good, well researched webpages out there, but even more ill-informed pages. Pity, they are not easily identified as to which is which.
