To cover a variety of topics, without overwhelming this site’s
storage, the link below takes you to an offsite
blog. Personally I was shocked and surprised to
find myself doing this. I always considered blogs quite
frankly blah-blah-blog! This is not that kind of
blog. I’ve learned to appreciate bloggers who give useful
Past posts spotlight Summer Reading plans -- Use the
topic tag “Summer Reading.” Ideas there often relate to nature
programs, too, such as 2014’s astronomy stories.
Additionally I have moved another blog to Storytelling + Research =
LoiS, “Michigan’s ‘Fighting Fifth Infantry’”, which contains Detroit
newspaper accounts of this important regiment. It was earlier
a separate blog during the Civil War Sesquicentennial.
Programs as Liberetta Lerich Green use this information as
part of its research when discussing the Civil War, since her
brothers were in the Fifth.
Each week find ideas at Storytelling + Research = LoiS. For
example, there are many posts on the various historical programs
with resources there.
During the month additional posts of public domain stories appear
as part of the blog’s series titled “Keeping the Public in Public Domain.”
