JUNE 22 UPDATE
SORRY, I'VE STOPPED TAKING REQUESTS FOR NOW. I'LL PROBABLY DO THIS AGAIN IN THE FUTURE, THOUGH, SO DESPAIR NOT.
Yes, I've decided, once again, to ask you, my reader, for suggestions. What daily mystery intrigues you? Is there a word or phrase that, when you think about it, strikes you as particulary odd and you'd like to know where the heck it came from? Did you come across some reference to some historical event that you know you're supposed to know all about, but truthfully, you couldn't say for sure what happened, and you'd like to know more? Have you always wanted to know who invented your favorite food, game, or tool? Curious about the meaning of some pop song?
In short, if you've got a question, ask me. I'll look it up for you. I'll post the answers here.
Just one thing: I know for a fact that kids from elementary schools read postings on this blog now and then, and so do people from countries all around the world. So please keep your requests suitable for all readers.
