Top 10 Resources

History is a funny creature. Do some people iron their shoelaces? I don't know what makes me think about things like this. I think it's because my great grandmother said that some rich family she knew in Duluth, used to pull the ribbons off packages, iron them, and then reuse them on future wrappings to other people.

Have you ever considered what the history books would say if your family wrote them? Right now, most are written with only certain people mentioned, and only certain moments in history recalled.
