As we've done before (and will probably do again), we're going to step away from blogging and other social-networking for the last two weeks of August to unwind, spend time with family and friends, and maybe even get a bit of writing done.
Since this is more or less our blog's fifth anniversary, too, we'd like to thank you all for another year of following our sundry historical discoveries, thoughts, and ramblings. We're not exactly sure when it happened, but it seems that sometime in the last few months we crossed the two-million mark in page views. We're amazed, and grateful as well. Who knew there were so many other Nerdy History Folk out there?
Enjoy the rest of your summer, and see you in September!

There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
