Sunday - Family Day

Today is the day I try to work on my family histories.  I've been researching ALL of my families for several decades.  I haven't reached the goal I set for myself but the journey has been fun and enlightening.

Genealogy, or family history, is one of the most popular and populated activities or hobbies.  It can become quite obsessive.  I have occasionally spent most of a day in research, forgetting to eat, forgetting other things that need to be done, forgetting what time it is and almost missing transportation schedules to get me back home.  It's also a lot of work

I'll be posting from time to time about this enjoyable activity; what's worked for me; obstacles I've encountered.  And, you will eventually find lists of resources on the site to help you with your family history research.

Enjoy the day.

Give me Feedback

Take a look at the link to Atlantic County, righthand menu.  It's the only page that's currently complete.  Let me know what you think.  I'll be working on a category page next.  If I get enough positive feedback, I'll use this layout as my web site rather than which isn't getting any traffic or interest.

I appreciate any feedback.

Have a great day.

Testing and more testing

This blog is my test blog to work on design ideas for my web site.  My web site at is useless.  I've spent a lot of time and effort to try to use the site as I want but the design is stagnant and I'm unable to add to it on my own.  This site allows me to work on the original idea I had for the site, on my own, without the constraints of my web hosts CMS and design.

Buying vintage is good economics

My "new" vintage kitchen cabinet from:

Cute and matches the kitchen, gives me more storage, is more interesting than anything I could have purchased new for the same price and is made of better materials and is better constructed.  It's also recycling the piece.  Buying used, vintage, and antiques is good economics.

World Oceans Day - June 8, 2012

The Two Hands Project

Ocean Alliance

Save the Whales

Institute of Cetacean Research

WDCS - Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society

These are just a few of the organizations fighting to clean up the ocean and to keep it clean and healthy. It's an inspiring list but every effort is necessary, every contribution important.  We have one home, much of it ocean.  We have to learn to live here intelligently.

Haven't heard of it?  Then you must have been asleep, out of state or out of the country for the past week or so.  The newest, most amazing new park and activity in New Jersey has been all over the news, online, on tv....

I called my son right away to let him know so he can take my granddaughter.  I'll have to call back to be sure I can go with them.

I understand there are over 30 life-sized, robotic dinosaurs on 20 acres and a variety of activities to participate in.
