About this Blog
Enough with the serious stuff... Trivia fascinates me and I have a burning desire to involve others in this useless, aimless, but fun activity. I am a strong believer in learning something new everyday and so I am foisting this knowledge on you as well. Who knows when you will need some useless, tid bit of information to form part of one of your yarns. Call it a community service if you will. You'll thank me for it one day!
