Then again...

Well, I've already changed my mind. I was commenting on Victorian era bathing suits over on Shorpy, when I thought that perhaps I need to keep the transportation side separate from the general history side. I mean, guys who like cars aren't interested in women in bathing suits, right? So I am going to use my other blog, Serviside (which I've also been sitting on forever and never posting to) as my Trains, Planes and Automobiles site. So wander over to and take a look around. Then come back here for the non-car/truck stuff. Go ahead. I'll wait.

At long last...something

OK, I've been sitting on this blogsite since December 31, 2004, so it's high time I did something with it. Blame Jesse at Just a Car Guy blog, since he shamed me into this.

Originally I had intended this to be a quasi-political blog, but there are a multitude of others who do that sort of thing way better than I ever could (hence my blog title). So I have decided to just make this a fun (for me) site where I touch on the things I enjoy beyond work. Mainly I'll just expand on the items that I post on other sites, such as the aforementioned Just a Car Guy, Shorpy, and Hemmings.

Obviously I like historic transportation topics, but I also enjoy military history with an emphasis on the American Civil War. And books. Lots and lots of books. You can never have too many books.

So, here we go.
