Studying

10:14am:
At a Morning Camp on Kearny Mesa, I've been studying history by watching videos of professors lecturing on history. One video lecture that I particularly enjoyed was given by Professor Willard Sterne Randall about Alexander Hamilton.

When I found this video lecture, I prepared breakfast and then watched the video.

Luxury!

  1. How appropriate, at this time, you should be listening to a lecture on Alexander Hamilton as he is the founder of the US banking system, among other things. Why appropriate? Because this nation now has a 9 trillion dollar national debt.

    1. Hi Dee,

      Thank you for commenting on the Alexander Hamilton lecture that I Blogged about.

      It may that the US National Debt is even higher than $9 Trillion.

    2. Sorry, typo! It's 19 trillion, more or less, not 9 trillion as of March 2017.

  2. George, I hated history as a child. It didn't interest me at all...except maybe ancient history. Now some history perks my interest when I travel i.e. railroad lines, old bldgs., Native American ruins etc. I also like to know about my own history and found my father's side of the family very interesting. Our great, great paternal grandfather was Henry Dodge, a member of house of representative and a democrat senator from Wisconsin. He had two sons Henry Lafayette Dodge (a white officer in U.S. army) and Augustus Ceasar Dodge. My great grandfather is Henry L. Dodge who married a Navajo woman and had a son Henry Chee Dodge. Henry C. Dodge is my paternal grandfather. Henry C. Dodge became the first Navajo Tribal Leader/President and his daughter Annie Dodge Wauneka (my aunt) became first Navajo councilwoman. This history I found out when researching to obtain my delayed birth certificate. Now, my family is comprised of many ethnic lineage. I met a niece recently, born in Los Angeles, an architect who lives in South Africa. She married a South African man who is also an architect and they travel the world building homes for folks who are disadvantage. They use recycled material or natural products from the area to build homes. I now keep up with them via Facebook. I think learning about my family is the most interesting history that I've learned and continue to learn. I'm following and learning about the young family members scattered across the U.S. and other countries...I am fascinated with this :-)
