Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade - my 70th and taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

Some Trivia - State Mottos


Mental Floss has an article about state mottos here.  You can enlarge the map they have there.

I thought I'd check to be sure I did know New Hampshire's where we're moving to in less than 2 weeks.  Yep, "Live Free or Die".  What I didn't know was Maryland's where I've lived for 45 years and taught Maryland history to 4th graders: "Strong Deeds, Gentle Words".

Check out your state's motto.

Anyone else having trouble with Blogger loading the sidebar? Both in Safari and Chrome it takes time to load the sidebar while the post section appears fine.  I don't have problems loading your blogs but only my own so far.
