Di... DSD had other plans for our last couple of days, so we didn't get back to Whitstable. She would like to go back for another class, though. I hope she makes the chance, and many thanks for telling us about it!

from Carl: "We would if the entire time before the white man showed up was considered part of American history but we all know that doesn't happen."

And:

My dad was fascinated by that history and studied it all his life. He took us to Mesa Verde National Monument in SW Colorado. We saw the mummified woman before they reburied her. (Which was the right thing to do.) We got to walk through the cliff dwellings and I was absolutely mesmerized.

When Kate & I are traveling, we want to see as many Native American historical sites as possible. We're going to start with the Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument up in the Texas Panhandle. That flint was traded all over north America for thousands of years. My dad went there many times. It was like holy ground for him.

Thanks for pointing out the sad truth .....

All true, plus what followed about history being rewritten...by the victors, as always happens.

Those ancient western sites always tug at me, too, although my only ancestral connection would be eastern. Martin's interests have a completely different basis, of course, but we each enjoy the journey in our own ways.

I can see there is a treasure trove of place names to be noted. Diane's notebooking skills would be handy, if I'd discipline myself to hone them for myself! Lists...and then the ability to locate said lists when needed!

Just back from the UK, not even home yet (overnighted at O'Hare) and I'm whetted for the journey SW this winter! Oh what y'all have done!

After thinking it over, possibly a nice gift idea for the Little Red Hen on our wedding anniversary would be a salt lamp, eh? What say ye?

Being a very handy DIY chap, I came up with this idea. A while back I spotted some big salt cube blocks at the local farm store. They even have a hole in the center where a warming light bulb could be installed.

Well here is a photo. Wifey will be surprised with my thoughtfulness.

Now that there was worth a belly laugh! OTOH...you never know, it might work.... Budget version.

from Wayne:

<font color="Blue">Strange language. They pronounce "schedule" "Shedule" but they pronounce "school" like we do. Why don't they say "Shoole?"

I refer you to a wonderful little book titled "Mother Tongue", by Bill Bryson. It'll have you rolling out of your recliner doubled up laughing, but you'll also get some great history lessons from it.

They also say "I can", but in the same breathe will say "I cahn't". Go figger.

Your childhood memory made me smile. I can just picture you at the salt lick ....

I wish everyone would write about one of their favorite childhood memories ... take inspiration from Sarah and go for it!
Loved Sarah's memory. And Mel, I'll take the bait.

Starting my young life in urban Southern California with only TV westerns for pasture, I used to gallop my stick horse (imaginary stick, even) up and down the sidewalks yelling "dun-da-luuuun!" Where I got that, nobody knows!

Or earlier than that, the Christmas I was given a red slicker and matching boots. The memory is of going outside and stomping in every rain puddle those sidewalks had to offer. Simple joys!

Good plan! Mother and I used to listen to their radio program every week. Beautiful music, it was, and a good memory of family time.

Go to the tiny little radius button underneath on the left... It defaults to 25 miles radius... Change to all members, then click search

It will then show where everyone is, i mean the ones that are on and update....
