Friday Round-Up - #110

For all you romance lovers, whether writers or readers, Linda, at Alacarte, gives us the history of how the, "X," came to represent the kiss.

Kristen Johnson, over at Adventures of History Girl, tells us about the origins of a beloved office supply - the Post-It-Note.

Have a super fabulous weekend!

Hi Jan -

Thanks. The piece about the "X" for kiss jumped out at me. Since so many of us love a good romance, I thought it would tickle everyone.

Kristen puts all sorts of fun historical things on her blog.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Now that's a great story about the post-it notes. What a long time they waited to make use of that adhesive. Encouraging. What would I do without my post-its?
