Where In The World Did That Come From?

Fun facts and worthless nuggets of information . . .


Are you ever curious about where stuff in our world comes from? I am.

Maybe you’re just as curious.


Hence, an idea is born . . .

I decided to start a series–don’t know how often I will post to this series–that will satisfy my general nosiness into things I don’t know. Maybe your nosiness will be satisfied also.


Here’s the first:


Ever wonder where the label Bluetooth derived from?

Maybe you know this, and maybe you don’t. I sure didn’t until my husband sent this to me. Believe me, he knows all about the tidbits of facts that spark my urge to find out . . .

But back to Bluetooth. See below.


Fascinating, yes?


And, just like that, we’re off and running to research and discover obscure facts about words and stuff that surround our everyday lives in the twenty-first century.

If you are like me, and you have to know, drop me a line about what gets your brain cells fired up . . . what makes you have to know . . . maybe even share a fascinating tidbit of your own.

Let’s talk.


Can’t leave you just yet.

Here’s a possible cover idea–just to whet your appetite a bit–for my forthcoming novel, No Tomorrows, to be released later this year.



(Still a work in progress, so mums the word!)


And, my newest release . . . available on Amazon

The Master's Inn, by Deb Gorman


Have a great April . . . I’ll be back in May!

    What a fun fact, Deb! Thanks for the explanation.

    Y’all read The Master’s Inn.
    Awesome book with lots of life’s lessons packed into it.
    Of course, the Master knows exactly how to deal with those.

    Another interesting term:
    “Monkey fist”.

  6. Barry Drake says:

    Amazon has part of the monkey fist meaning correct. But, they missed the main usage of this term. If anyone gets this right, I’ll be amazed.

    Interesting info on Bluetooth. I always enjoy learning the background to common phrases. I’ll be following your blog for more.

      Hey, Steve! I don’t know how many times a day I say, “I wonder why it’s called that . . . ” I’m sure it drives my husband crazy.

      Thanks for reading and commenting; always so much appreciated!
