So, every time I move to a new town, I learn its history.  I did that when I moved to Cambridge and Boston, again in Ann Arbor, Long Beach (CA), Charlottesville, and Alexandria.  And, that usually meant that my kids were subjected to those searches and adventures, too.

I’m sure you’ve recognized by now that many of our most creative individuals never get the credit they deserve. Sometimes, it’s because what they developed or invented was marketed by a large firm, so the credit goes to the company.
