Today is ASTRONOMY DAY. Do you know where your stars are?
I created a blog just for Sage, because it seems to me that she leads a life that's actually more interesting than most. After all, she literally learns something new nearly every day! Besides, it's a nice way to keep a record of her ongoing childhood, which is very important, not just for the obvious reasons, but if anything should ever happen to me, she'll have to depend on her father for stories of her youth. And as anyone well-acquainted with Dean knows, he's a brilliant man unfortunately cursed with the memory retention of a goldfish.
With apologies to its many devotees, my regular trivia quiz is temporarily going on hiatus. I realized it was actually making me reluctant to update, since that would entail bludgeoning my brain once again for a little-known topic of interest. I have kept it up mostly daily for over two months, so perhaps it's not surprising that my noggin is all wrung out. Never fear; it will be back once I've recovered, and sporadically till then whenever an item of intriguing trivia happens to occur to me.
answer to Thursday's question
The first known fictional detective was Auguste C. Dupin, featured by Edgar Allan Poe in his 1841 The Murders in the Rue Morgue. Mystery fiction's most famous sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, did not appear until 46 years later, in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's A Study in Scarlet.
