"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens."
– Carl Jung

Morning, I woke up with one heck of a headache. I wish it were a migraine cause then i would know what to do. This one isn't responding to anything. Right now I'm down to dehydration, I got my water yesterday, but I've tried everything else I can think of. Maybe with the temp 96 and heat index of 110 it was to much for me. I sweat so bad at work anyway.

There is no all that applies to any group. I do comparative religion studies and I think Christians have the most diversity. Some Christian groups have more in common with other religions then they do with other Christian sects.

I can't read the texted 20 commandments. I have tried to figure out abbreviations for texting, but always end up just typing the entire words. Once in a while I can get the U or R, but if I abbreviate something it is usually because a letter won't type or something.

Your crazy missionary sounds like one of those that is so pushy he pushes people away from Christianity rather than bringing them toward it. I am always seeing things where people complain that "all Christians" are pushy and rude. A lady on FB supposedly would not have anyone from our church work in her husband's and her office because of one pushy person and she decided that everyone in our church was that way (believe me, I found out how pushy that person really is). Of course, her husband used that as an excuse why he couldn't have me work for them even starting out with no pay and then asked the Pastor's daughter to come work for him when she wasn't even looking for a job with them.

Good morning. Last night wasn't to bad, only one crazy. He thought I needed saved. He started preaching at me. I had a line and was trying to get things moving. I told him it wasn't the time or place to discuss religion. He said he could respect my job, but he was a missionary and it was his job to save me and kept preaching. Now I'm not saying missionaries are crazy. I'm saying trying to save me while I'm sending your money to a minister in Kenya is crazy.

Here, in the loveliness of woods and shades,
Where the dark pine is sighing in the breeze,
Where the bright sunshine quivers through the glades,
And falls in mottled gold beneath the trees,
Here will I dedicate, with voiceless prayer,
A holy altar unto God and Thee —
And the dim wood, and the religious air,
My temple and my sacristy shall be.
Sarah Edgerton Mayo,

Good morning. Trying to find the energy to exercise. I'm not looking forward to the operation, but am looking forward to a month off. The Dr says I should be up and around the 2ed day and back to exercise like walking. I'll be able to do anything but weights and things like cross fit by the end of the week.

Good morning everyone. I hope that your weekend is going well and you enjoy nice, NOT extreme weather today. I'm going to try to get to the pool early this morning before the sun glare is too intense on the water. After falling Mon., I need the "hydrotherapy.
Have a good one!

It is good that you won't need the surgery right away, but that is hard that you will have to be out for that long. It is too bad that where you work they can't trust most of their employees.

I went to the Dumb Friends League Cat Fest today. Mainly they are to encourage cat adoptions, but they have booths with different things -- animal chiropractic and laser treatments, photography, nutrition, toys, etc. plus food for humans. There is also a training center inside where they had demos. I got a few samples for Orzo to eat and won a toy on the spin wheel for him. At first I didn't think he would play with it, but when I brought it into the living room he did. He batted it a couple times, then picked it up in his paws and rolled over on his back to play with it. I would have loved to win a grand prize -- they gave away soft-sided carriers and my carrier is a broken one. The little boy right in back of me won one of those.

Finally got my entire yard mowed. I did the top terrace and front yard and my neighbor did the bottom terrace and hill. I just have a terrible time trying to get up that hill.

"No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit."
– Helen Keller

Good morning, I went to the surgeon yesterday. He said the discomfort I was felling was a gull stone. No it didn't have to come out right away since I hadn't had an attack, but since diet wasn't working for me, I am relatively young, 61, and in good health, he would rather take it out now while it will be a simple operation. He said that even with the simple operation, because of my activity level at work, I need to plan on being out 3 to 4 weeks. Our store doesn't have a separate money center, if it did I would only be out a week. I told them at work last night.

They only have 2 closers and I'm one of them. Last night they were talking about people I could train. Most were disqualified because of integrity issues. On a Friday night the end of the month I can handle $20,000. If they think that would be too much temptation, your out. That would explain why I'm having problems transferring to another position.

That would just drive me nuts if they had a different opinion on the same thing. Come to think of it, my eye doctors are that way. The cataract doctor says my vision problem is still from the macula tear and the retina one says it is a cataract.

I hope that you can get that all straightened out.

"You miss 100% of the shots you never take."

Good morning, Just stopping in for a quick Hi. I have an appointment with a surgeon at 11 this morning. I have one Dr that says my gall bladder doesn't need to come out and one that says it does. The one that says it does sounds knife happy and can't remember more then 5 min that I'm vegetarian for health reasons. DD is an ICU nurse at the hospital and I asked her if there where any surgeons she trusted to give me a straight answer that were willing to work with me. The one she recommended is 20 miles the other way from work and I have to be at work at 2. The surgeon is off to a good start. I expressed my concerns to the nurse when she called me back to tell me what I needed to bring. The Dr talked with my daughter last night at the hospital about my concerns.

That must really be hard to have to be fixing the fence all the time. Can you put invisible fence inside it a foot or so so that Mutt learns not to go too close to the fence and can't destroy it that way?

I have one side fence that needs replaced, but neither my neighbors (actually their fence that former neighbors tore up) or I can afford a new one. We can't even do repairs because the nails and screws keep coming back out. I have one tree that has grown into that fence (it is a wild elm that won't be killed).

"All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without the benefit of experience."
– Henry Miller

Good morning. I spent yesterday afternoon trying to fix the fence Mutt keeps making holes on. I told DH I think the best thing to do would be to take the old fence down and put up a new one. We couldn't do it, The fence has been there so long most of it is living fence post every 6 inches and they aren't small trees either. The back year is 3/4 of an acre and this is the long side. it would be cheaper to fence the front yard. Mutt don't run that much and the 1/4 front yard would be big enough for him. The only thing is that means we would have one dog in the front yard and one in the back. Duke needs 3/4 of an acre.

I tried emailing someone who asked about the family on the genealogy forum, but it was an old email no longer in existence. Unfortunately, all those forums have old messages, which is one reason I can't find out which information I have on his wife's family is correct. I did find out from the Mocavo link that he was born in Missouri (but not where, since I can't get to the census page they took the information from without paying) and his parents were from Germany (no names on them).

Good morning, Yesterday was a short day and wasn't all that bad, but my feet are killing me this morning. I don't want to get out of the recliner. I did walk the fence line. Mutt was at the front door again.

I wish I could help you. I have some people that I think just appeared.

Where is it that I would ask about something I just found? I found out that my ggrandfather moved to OK after his wife died. He was buried in Ketchum Cemetery, Ketchum, OK. DOD 12/14/1925. Headstone says Matthew Heisenstein rather than Matthias (guess it is Americanized for Matthias). I haven't been able to find anything else on him in OK so far. When I try to Google it can't even find the grave (that's on findagrave). I know from the DOB and DOD that it is the correct person.

Court, you'll often see the dates listed as 1700/01. That means that it was still the year 1700 then, but by the current calendar it would be 1701.

MaryAlice, glad that Duke is doing better, I know it is hard on humans when a pet dies, but we don't know just how much it affects the other pets.

Dusty, I had to ask my DH if the 4.6 was good. He has diabetes but I don't know the numbers. I guess fghe 4.6 is good. I think I must have missed some post, what pre-op? Please refresh my mind. Hope all goes well.

I've been reading about the Julian calendar and wonder if when I get back before 1752, if I have to start thinking of it as March 25 as the first of the year. I don't think I've actually gotten that afar back but on my Familysearch tree some have gone back further, but I didn't post the ancestors. So confusing. What countriess went with this date? I have 2-months left on my paid Ancestry.com so hope to break through some brick walls. I"ve found some people but not as close to my brick wall goals as I want to be. Still looking for Irish on my tree, maybe through my English or Scottish.

Security is a superstition--it does not exist in nature. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
– Helen Keller

Good morning, Last night was interesting at work last night. Someone in their great wisdom didn't schedule anyone after 8. CS is open till 11. My manager told me to close CS at 7:30 and clean up. At 8:15 a customer complained to management that I was cleaning and not waiting on customers. Upper management came and said I had to wait on customers. My manger can in and told me he was glad I stayed to help clean, but I was to take one customer, turn out the light and leave. He didn't care there was a pile of trash in the middle of the floor where I had been sweeping, the garbage wasn't emptied or totes turned.They couldn't make me work over time and he didn't want me in the middle of their stupidity. At least he had so sense.

Duke is fine. You could leave the gate open and he wouldn't leave the yard. He just drives us nuts wanting to play fetch. Mutt had the runs. The vet said he didn't have garbage gut again and thought he was grieving Freyja. What ever his problem was he is fine now.

Morning another turnaround. I got home at midnight and leave at 10:30 this morning. These turnarounds really pull my energy. I need to get this health thing taken care of. My energy has disappeared.

I woke up to Mutt whining, dressed fast and took him out. I couldn't just let him in the back yard because DH said Mutt had made another hole. We got about a quarter of a mile down the road when I realized Mutt didn't need out that bad. There was a bird the sounded just like Mutts whine.

Went to the funeral of the 23 year old son of a friend. He was in a car accident with no seat belt & was on life support for a week. They removed the life support last Friday. The chapel was packed with friends & family. So sad!

"Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action."
– Benjamin Disraeli

Good morning. I spent the morning fixing up after Mutt. He has the runs. The vet says he is morning Freyja and to just make sure he doesn't get dehydrated in this heat. That means keeping him inside. He does ok during the day when I can watch him, but at night and when I go to work is a different story. Mutt won't bark when he needs to go out. He nudges me and walks to the door, but he won't go to DH, so I put him in his crate at night and close the door. He whines every 3 or four hours to go outside. If I hear him, great, but if I don't wake till his whine is loud the crate needs cleaned. DH lets him out every 3 hours and hopes he is right. That and he found another way to get out of the fence.

Morning, todays quote is for me. I got home at 11:30 last night. DH told me he thought freyja was sick and i ant looking for her. No Freyja anywhere. At Midnight I decided to get ready for bed. As I got near the head of my bed I could hear something. A cross between labored breathing a trent. There between my night stand and bed, half under the bed was Freyja. Alive but unresponsive. She didn't even open her eyes when I petted her. I took my shower and went to bed, today is an early day, at least early for me. I didn't think I would sleep with the noise Freyja was making but I did. 4 hours later Ii suddenly woke. All was quite. i knew without looking Freyja had crossed the Rainbow bridge, but I checked on her in the hopes i was wrong. I slept fine with the noise, but not beside a dead kitty. This morning I have wondered aimlessly around. I thought I started at 11 and was already to leave at 10:30 only to remember I have to be there at noon. Hope we have normal people doing normal stuff, I have had 4 hours sleep, I'm not thinking straight and in no mood for the crazies we have had the past few days.

Thanks Sandy. I hope the Finlay and Findlay are the same people, just spelled different like those other names like Nori and Norrie. Funny how they can have same first names, same names for their kids and slightly different last name, have to be same people but just misspelled, I think. Not this family but my Galloways are like that.

I'm so tired today. Must have stayed up too late last night.

I don't know how you do it, working at all odd hours. But I guess I'd get use to it if I had too.

I have a problem that I should know by now. I'm researching my Scottish and have it back to 1700s. May (Nori or Norri) Douglass was born either 1787. I found this on Ancestry.com.

May Norie
Gender: Female
Baptism Date: 13 May 1787
Baptism Place: Benholm,Kincardine,Scotland
Father: William Norie
Mother: Anne Finlay

I've seen other trees with Wm. and Ann Finlay name. Trying to find the parents to this Wm (May's dad) is my problem. When you get so far back you don't have Scottish census rec. So there isn't much to compare the dates with. I did find a Wm. Nori with parents Wm and Jean Duncan, but I didn't see any other trees using those parents, and I don't have any other documents to show Wm. and Jean as parents to Wm. What other documents do you look for Scottish? I can't buy documents, but any tips?

I have one great, several greats back that looked like he died 15 years before my relative was born. Come to find out. He lived in New York, said he was going hunting with some friends. The end of the day the friends went home without him and told his wife the Indians killed him. New York issued a death certificate, he went out to the Montana territory, remarried and started a new family.

I've come to believe that my paternal 2nd great grandfather Adam Thomas was an alien, the space kind. He had no parents, either none or maybe three spouses, and lived in western NC. I guess the only way to find out is to travel there and go door-to-door or in this case, from cemetery to cemetery.

I find that a great part of the information I have was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way.
Franklin P. Adams
US journalist (1881 - 1960)

Good morning, I thought, crazy me, we were going to have a quite day yesterday. between it being the 4th and spotty showers that were at the store. No we were busy.

One of the customs told me I needed to take care of my feet. He said he retired from retail years ago and his feet still hurt. He said that he user to buy his shoes a size too big, put cardboard in them and wear 3 pairs of socks. I think in this heat that would make my feet so sweaty that I would always have infections. Most people have said their feet stopped hurting 2 months after retiring.

Every one on the east coast, hope you are fine.

Good morning, I thing this heat and humidity are draining me. Feel naked without my SPAT telling me things. SP says the company that does the magic that makes the tracker work is having problems. Hope they fix it soon.

I'm second generation American on Mom's side of the family. One line on Dad's I can trace back to 1600 in Virginia.

Good morning, off again today. Still trying t stay off my feet, but will walk the dogs.

My Dads family is the same way. Sometimes I think they just fall into America. I did have someone that was researching a cousin that was still in Ireland and came to Galveston, TX to visit his cousins. He told me what part of Ireland they were from. I looked at that county and I think every family was named Hurley and in the 10 year spans I was looking in, every family had a son and named him Charles.

COWARDLYLION59, that is the problem I'm having with my paternal grandmother. I know when & how she got here but can find no information about her in Ireland. Sarah Walsh is a very common name in County Mayo, Ireland. Her father is listed on her death certificate as Martin Walsh, another common name in County Mayo, Ireland.

Been a long time on here and hope all is well. I'm pretty much the family historian and keep most dates and names down. Tough to track my mom's side since her great grandmother came from Germany and unknown actually what boat she sailed in on. So many Catherina Kautz that unable to pin point the right one. Hopefully someone has heard of this name or is related, we lost a few years back the only remaining oldest family member who could of been able to answer this for us.

Good morning. Jumping in to say hi then need to get ready for work. Another day when I worked till 11 last night and go in at 11 this morning. I did get a dog walk in this morning.

DD thinks that is how they should remove my gallbladder. The other surgeries they want to do are to remove cysts, and I don't know how they want to do that. One Dr says they are the kind woman my age get and should be left alone. The other Dr says we can't be sure until they are removed and a biopsy done.

MaryAlice, the "minimally invasive" refers to laproscopic surgery. Instead of cutting you open, they make three tiny holes & go in & do the surgery that way. A lot less recovery time. I had my appendix removed that way.

Wow! Since I found out where my grandfather was really born I've made great progress. Of course, I'm not getting much else done this weekend.

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."
– Albert Einstein

Good morning, I'm one of these people that when I set a daily goal for steps or exercise I'll do almost anything to reach it. I have been so tired and rundown that I decided I really needed to take it easy, so yesterday i went in and cut my step goal in half. I made my new goal and then some, but was nowhere near my old goal. I feel better today so hope this is what I needed. I think stress is a big part of it. It is looking more and more like I'm going to have an operation. The question is is it going to be 1 or 3 and how invasive. My general Dr says 1 min invasive. The surgeon says 3 invasive. DD says he is knife happy and is helping me find a DR that will take my instance that isn't knife happy. I'm not in pain, just get discomfort from time to time that is getting worse not better.

The load of laundry I put out yesterday is getting rinsed again.

"Mishaps are like knives, that either serve us or cut us, as we grasp them by the blade or by the handle."
– James Russell Lowell

Good morning. It isn't raining yet, o I have a load of cloths in the washer. I know they won't dry because we are expecting rain later today, but what I really need is hung in the house anyway.

I'm tired and don't have any energy. The regulars at work noticed, but if anyone else did they didn't say anything.

Every once in awhile something happens at work that makes it all worth it. A customer I hadn't seen before came in CS last night. She was very upset, fighting tears and losing. I could tell from something she said that a he had done something. As she started to leave I told her tears didn't mean you're week, they meant you had been strong too long. She grabbed my hand and said thank you about a dozen times.

“Values are like fingerprints. Nobody's are the same, but you leave 'em all over everything you do.”

- Elvis Presley

Good morning, We are on our 2ed day of a slow steady rain. it is just what we need, the ground is so dry it hasn't filled in the cracks in the yard yet. I've walked both dogs. Duke loves water and enjoyed the rain. Mutt hates water but I guess he has been cooped up to long because he walked along in the rain just fine.

Just when I thought Duke was walking on a leash well enough that I could try walking them together, Mutt decides to slow down. Mutt is 7, the vet had told me he would start showing his age and to watch for him slowing down. Yes he still runs and plays with Duke, and yes he still wants long walks, but when we walk he wants a nice slow walk.

“The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won't.”

- Henry Ward Beecher

Good morning, It has stopped raining. Judging by the cracks on the yard we could use some more, just a nice slow rain without the thunder and lightning.

I have a DR's appointment this afternoon. I don't know how happy the Dr is going to be. He wanted me to see another Dr about having my gall balder removed. My general DR said she couldn't tell me not to, but she didn't think it was necessary. My daughter, ICU RN, said if I wanted to get it done, there where better Drs to do it then the one he recommended.

Last night i was checking my laves on Ancestry. I know most of both side of my family was in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. I found one that I hadn't ever found was in the Revolutionary war was buried in a Revolutionary grave yard that was named for him. He is my new project.

I am so happy! Had a major breakthrough a couple of days ago. I've never had much information on my father's family.

I knew that his mother, Sarah, was born in Ireland & that her father's name was Martin & I had the manifest from when she arrived in the US in 1898.

The 1900 census said that his father, Charles, was born in Canada to parents who were born in Ireland & that they immigrated to the US when Charles was 4 years old. Charles' death certificate gave his parents' names as Robert Cottingham & Mary Edwards. This is the information I was using in my search.

Then this week, I was looking at the death certificates for Charles & Sarah's four sons. The certificate for John is the only one in which my grandmother Sarah was the informant. On it she stated that Charles was born in Waycross, Georgia. Waycross was squeezed in above the Georgia.

There he was with his parents in Waycross, Ware County, Georgia. The only thing different was the name of his mother. Her name was Angelina, not Mary. Not only did I find him & his parents, but his siblings, grandparents, aunts & uncles, & great-grandparents & their children.

I'm a little overwhelmed right now. It would be great if I can track down a living relative.

"Always do the things you fear the most. Courage is an acquired taste, like caviar."
– Erica Jong

Good morning, I'm off today and my ankle is saying good, I ned to stay off it. I did get up early and walk the fence line while playing fetch with Duke this Morning. I came home last night and was greeted by two dogs at the end of my driveway. Found the hole and put a cement block in it. DH asked how we were going to keep Mutt from making holes along that fence. I told him the only thing I could thing of that was sure to work is to clear that fence, trench it and put the fence back starting a foot in the ground. He just laughed at me and said there had to be a better way.

Remember that brush pile I made a month ago, well DH hasn't burnt it yet and something is living in it. I know because Mutt is having a great time burrowing into it trying to get to something. I told DH if he ever decided to burn the pile he needed to make sure he know where Mutt was.

My hair is thick, I'm 5'8" so it doesn't make me look short. If I braid my hair an hour later I look like a child that took a nap with her hair in braids.

So many of my lines have dead ended, I'm spending more time looking in to the family and the area where they lived. Getting background on them. I said once before I had some walking videos, well I found one of area in Ireland I was interested in. It was even an interacting video that gave you facts about the area. One thing I learned is it was a mining town that grew up around a mastic village.

I wish I could wear long hair, but mine is fine and my braids seem to get thinner and thinner, even though I'm not suppose to have thin hair. Also in my case it made me look older I think because of my height 4'8". But it isn't pretty, my gray is light in places and dark in other places, too patchy. They think of me as a kid until they see the wrinkles but my gray hair isn't pretty. My mom had pretty white hair.

If I had pretty hair like yours, MaryAlice, I'd not color it all the time. That gets to be a bore, especially since I have to do it myself and hope to get all the gray covered.

I'm concentrating on my Scottish now. Gave up on my Irish. I found my Scottish and want to pursue further and learn more about the country. Found some neat info sites. Helps on knowing how they named their kids, and what thr difference in names of counties etc from what they are now.

Good morning. Another hot one. Looks like it is going to be a long, hot dry summer.

I have long white hair. I'm use to people commenting on it. Yesterday a lady can in CS and told me how pretty my hair was and that I should be wearing it down, it was too pretty to be pulled back. I told her it was just too hot and I did wear it down from time to time. She told me people with hair a pretty has mine needed to except the heat. Our hair needed to be shown off. Sorry even in the air conditioning in Wal-Mart and 2 fans on, I get a sweaty mess. My hair is not only pulled back, it is off my neck. Besides that even in the winter most of us keep our long hair pulled back, it gets in the way. I know I haven't updated my picture in 2 years, so my picture shows me with short hair. I don't like to take pictures when it is hot because I bloat so bad in the heat, but I'll see if I can get one with my hair down.

I became your team leader last night. I've never done this before so please bear with me. I'll try and get an Spark Mail out to everyone. That is one of the things I need to figure out how to do.

Good morning. I really need to see if they can get me some help on Saturday night. Last night I got off 1/2 hour late and that was because night shift started on my work and I didn't do much cleaning. The week before I got off an hour late. I go in at 11 this morning and said no way i was staying that late this week.

Sandy, I've never been a leader. Is there someone that has been that can be a co leader and train me?

It has been so dry for so long, yes rain from time to time, but never enough to brake the drought, that if it is green and grows we cultivate it, unless it is sumac then watch out I'm coming after you.
