My name is dia. I had visions of this site being about history and it did start out that way, but it evolved, as things often do. It evolved into the unexpected and a mish mash of topics, — a tangled mess actually. Life is like that, you never know what to expect.
There are many subjects I have orbiting around in my head. You will find this space to be dedicated to nothing in particular, but always a surprise. I love history, old photographs, the 1940s, WWII, antiques, old houses, vintage mannequins and jewelry. I collect antique telephones, typewriters and love to explore flea markets and antique shops.
I listen to the old radio classics on satellite radio. Dragnet is my favorite. I am amazed at how many radio shows were made in the 1940’s and 50’s… and then TV had to come along and ruin it all.
I still enjoy the old corny 1960 TV shows: Batman, Lost in Space, I Dream of Jeannie, The Andy Griffith Show, Beverly Hillbillies, Petticoat Junction, Green Acres, Gilligan’s Island, and of course Addam’s Family and The Munsters. I want those shows back. I may mention them here from time to time.
By day, I work in the advertising/marketing field. In my spare time, I am a member of my local historical society and the designer/editor of their newsletter. Always learning. That never stops.
