Fun for me too

To satisfy Samuel's interest in "The History of the Years" I have been printing out select events from years. I began last week with 1900 and we have worked our way, year by year, up to 1905. Samuel is looking forward to seeing 1906 because he already knows that his favorite breakfast cereal company, Kellog's, was founded that year. I wonder if the website I have been using will mention that (spiritus-temporis.com).

I am having just as much fun reading up on all of this as Samuel is. I absolutely love history and I am particulary mesmerized by the beginning of the 20th century and the years leading up to WWI, when a massive upheaval started occuring in the world that nobody could have possibly predicted.
