looking for a few good ideas

Guantanamo Bay

An email from my Mum prompted me to do a bit of research on the web regarding the US Naval base at Guantanamo Bay, in Cuba. Very interesting. This site (http://www.nsgtmo.navy.mil/History/HISIDX.HTM) has quite a lot of detail collected from various sources, and certainly explained to me why the US has a naval base in Cuba, which seems odd if you know little US history. I definitely fall into that camp. (Maybe that's not the best choice of words...)

Here's what I wished I'd studied in college:

  • Economics
  • World History

I used to think these topics were boring when I was at school. Now I wonder whether they should make them manditory. That creaking sound you can hear is me turning into a fuddy-duddy I expect.
