In February I wrote about my almost new iPhone. I love it, but there have been problems. I am a slow learner in certain areas. Others pretty speedy. I can take pictures, download them to my computer, and upload them to my blog. Pretty cool.

Unfortunately, I can not ever figure out how to down load apps the first time. And if I do get it to work the first time, I don't know how I did it. Saturday it worked the first time and I love this FREE app.

Did you know on this date (April 5) in history:

in 1614 Native American Pocahontas marries English Colonist John Rolf in Virginia

in 1827 Joseph Lister, English surgeon, was born

in 1949 Fireside Theater debuts on television

I love trivia stuff like this. The app list births, deaths, political events, religious events, sports stuff, etc. There are sometimes hundreds of listings. I can jump ahead on the calendar or jump back, I'm not limited to just today. This is so fun to use. I know, this is the sort of thing retired teachers would love. Well, that is me.

I am sure Marty will grow tired of this way before I do. He is not a huge fan of being read historical trivia. I will try to control myself. But some historical facts just cry out to be shared.
