Women’s History Month

In 1987, Congress designated March as National Women’s History Month. There are hundreds of women who stand out in American History due to their strong characters, contributions to society, or plain old interesting personalities. From the hardy pioneers who crossed the vast prairies and mountains heading westward, to nurses, abolitionists, stagecoach drivers, and even a few doctors and soldiers, you’ll find their stories here.

Did You Know ?  

From the wild and wooly mining camps, to the rampages of the Civil War, to the many cowboys riding on the range, these folks often used terms and phrases that are hard to figure out today. Yet other sayings still remain in everyday language, though usually specific to certain regions.

  1. Dear Dave,
    I love your nostalgia story. I, too, am married to a Kathy(with a “K”). We married later in life as well, however we had known one another for twenty plus years, just happened to end up divorced at the same time and met to have lunch to talk about being roommates. The rest is, as they say, history. Kathy and I do a bit writing as well; love stories in the form of books with genres from “romance” to Steampunk. Our birthdays are exactly(yes I checked) half a year apart. Believe it or not, we live just down the highway from you in Merriam, Kansas. Anyhoo, I just want to say thank you for your story, congrats on fifteen years and I sincerely hope you are both feeling better soon, you guys rock!!

  2. Dear Dave & Kathy, I enjoy your site so much and eagerly look for each issue. I really enjoyed your article on “The Medicine Wheel”. I have been to the wheel but it has been more 20 years ago. The picture you posted prompted a question, has there been restoration to this site? It seems to me there are more stones in the spokes than I remember. Thanks for the time, keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks for the kind words Ed, and thanks for being a newsletter subscriber! I believe there has been some restoration to the Big Horn Medicine Wheel, but don’t have the facts in front of us so can’t say for sure.
