For my first blog post, I think I should explain why I chose Past Time Musings.  I enjoy soccer, sewing, reading and writing.  All are past times of mine.  I also enjoy history, another type of past time.  Rather than limit this blog to talking about one or the other, I’ve combined them.  🙂

People have told me blogging is dead, and by implication, are asking me why do something so last year.  Maybe it’s because I’ve got that history bug, and blogging didn’t interest me until it was an antique.

I don’t want this first post to be too long.  Just enough to say hi and welcome.
