Did you know?
Posted On 09/06/2020 10:22:10 by Altara33606

Did you know you can "Google" just about anything? I do that frequently.


Today, after a song kept going around in my head, I decided to Google "Buffalo Gals". The original 'buffalo gals' were dancers at saloons, dance halls, and brothels. Apparently, from what I found, this song was often sung by minstrels in blackface. It became a popular folk song in the mid 1900's.  


However, a more modern 'urban dictionary' claims  that a Buffalo Gal is a skier/snowboarder who doesn't get off the ski lift at the top & has to go 'around' for another chance.  It made me wonder why they chose that term, obviously having 'heard' the term from the past. 


Anyway, as I said...you can learn a lot just by "Googling" anything!

The Internet has become a great souce for learning just about anything you desire.   I used to Google everything but sense they started senoring the news I use other search engines.  They have made it difficult to look up a balance information on some things.  The Internet is world wide and should not be sensored.  But I agree... it is a wonderful place to find out anything you want.

I Google all the time. Over the years I've learned a lot of interesting things. But I didn't know about the "bufalo gals".

Google is my main tool... it sure saves a lot of time when trying to remain "focused on what I was trying to find. That is a good hint to pass on.
