Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
When I'm not busy obsessing over politics
, arguing foreign policy
, or otherwise trying to inflame
homicidal islamists--not to mention my time spent sitting in school
or being a family man!--I like to spend my time studying history. Specifically, I enjoy learning about the history of my beloved Old Dominion--the ancient and historic
Commonwealth of Virginia.
This obsession-slash-hobby of mine manifests itself in many ways: Countless hours poring over old books, excessive interest in old and historic places. Recently, I discovered Google's new My Maps
, and figured that it would be a neat way of tracking places in the Commonwealth I've visited. Or maybe even a neat way of sharing some of my little obsession with you, the reader
If you're interested in seeing some things about Virginia which you may not have seen before, I invite you to join me on my little journey
, as I explore some of the lesser-known places of historic Northern Virginia. And please do share your ideas with me
, if you know of something in your corner of the Commonwealth that I need to come and see.
