A Brief History On January 10, 1929, a house car, a type of recreational vehicle, named Harriet was present at the Tin Can Tourists convention in Arcadia, Florida.  By the 1920s, the recreational vehicle, often abbreviated as RV, was well established in the United States of America, with RV camping clubs established across the country.  The term “RV” is thus relatively new.  It has been only in the past 50 to 60 years that people began referring to campers and travel trailers as RVs.  Let us see what else you might not know about recreational vehicles, RVing and the people…

A Brief History On August 6, 1945, near end of World War II, a modified B-29 dropped a uranium gun-type (“Little Boy”) bomb on Hiroshima.  Three days later, on August 9, a plutonium implosion (“Fat Man”) bomb was dropped by another B-29 on Nagasaki.

We, the humans, have come a long way as a race and civilization. For instance, one can create a quality research paper about how people discovered fire, harnessed electricity and was able to create life as we…

A Brief History On July 12, 1917, the local sheriff deputized 2000 men as a posse to do the dirty work for the local mining company, called Phelps Dodge Corporation, and forcibly and illegally “deported” 1300 people to New Mexico.  The deported people were striking miners and their supporters, most of which were Mexican Americans.  Echoes of this shameful event are evident today when we are on the precipice of another announced mass round up and deportation of undocumented (i.e., “illegal”) Mexicans from the United States, to be conducted legally by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) at the…
