Hi from Scotland Lori! It's nice to get to know you through your v. interesting blogs and I will visit again soon. Kindest regards, Janice x

Bill said...

Fascinating blog! I've sort of "inherited" the role of family historian/genealogist. With so much information available online, it almost feels like 'cheating' compared to what previous generations had to do with all the letters, the traveling, the dusty books in courthouse basements ... but I'm definitely not complaining!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving the nice comment.

Bye for now,
Bill

Hey! I love geneology, too! Isn't it completely addicting? I see you have a lot of French ancestry. I am largely Scottish. Isn't it wonderful to find out where your people come from, as well as their stories?

Thank you for stopping by Home Musings...Also what is Carnival of Geneology?? I am inspired by your blog...I must get back to my family history studies!!

I completely forgot to answer your question about what was in the champagne flutes. No, it's not Prosecco (but very good guess); I faked it! It was July 4th, liquor stores were closed (here at least), and I had nothing sparkling to use. I had a little bit of white zinfandel -- I poured some in the bottom of the flutes and topped it off with Sprite.
Are you disappointed?

Then I needed something colorful to put in the empty bottle for the photo, so I poured in some merlot (only about an inch in the bottom) and filled it with water. Pretty color, but I definitely poured it down the sink as soon as I finished taking the pictures.

Now you know .... ;)

Thanks for commenting on my "rust"!!! Love your blog...especially the "it's mine and you can't make me". Very cute!

Bill said...

Hi Lori,
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my 'morning coffee' post --- yes, this time the beverage is what it appears to be! In fact, I slurped down both cups before I packed everything up and hauled it all back inside ... then quickly got ready and rushed off to work! That was the illusion this time -- that there was anything relaxing about that little endeavor! And, yes, c'mon down and we'll go estate sale shopping! Glad you liked the glass plates ... hope the rest of your week goes well.

Bye for now,
Bill

What an interesting blog you have. I will read you other one at a later time. I just recently left the lower Mainland of BC for Manitoba, I miss it. Especially all of the sweet friends that I left behind. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. You are right, we do live in a wonderful country that is just waiting for us to discover it and I am enjoying the process. We were in Saskatchewan this week. I will be blogging on it next Wednesday. Hugs ~cindy s~

Police visited us ,one morning a Dad came looking for his son and just at the right time Dad walked up the driveway and saved the kids skin by saying that he was home the whole time. He never lived in that house ever.cool Dad eh HA HA, when you guys got back we yhought we had the house cleaned pretty good of the party than when mom sat down on her chair Vic and I saw at the same timea beer bottle cap under the TV.He got moms attention and I made a dive for it We were not caught.Fun had by all.Love you Dot

Blue bird said...

Hi Lori! There is no shortage to get comments for you.! I love them, but it takes time to collect people who would leave a message. Many readers enjoy a blog, but to leave a note, that is not so easy for many.
Anyway I am happy that I can do this, because it was not easy to get here where I am in blogging. Love: Blue Bird/Julia :-)

Sandi McBride said...

Lori, I came in to thank you for stopping by to visit...I always love meeting new people! I loved the story about your Mom...left a comment there...

Porch Days said...

I followed you here from your comment on "That Old House." This time I chose an ivory colored acrylic sink. I use clorox to clean it. Maybe that will work for your sink.

My Grama's Soul said...

Hi Lori - It is so kind of you to check in on my blog occasionally. Hopefully my blog will be really up and running by next week. It is a pretty slow process with me as i am a real computer technoslug. Just wanted to stop by and say hi!!

Renate said...

Hi Lori,
This is my first visit to your blog, but I enjoyed browsing it. Great story about the train ride (pea soup and steak)! :) Keep up the good work, and stop by and see me at www.justthinking130@blogspot.com. :)

A guest book is really nice to have here.
Is it to be kept separate from comments.
You have been awarded the Ancestor Approved award for your great work on your genealogy blog...please stop by my blog and pick up the award (by right clicking on it and saving it to a .jpg) and then post the below information with the picture, using the format I used when receiving it.

The Ancestor Approved Award asks that the recipient list ten things you have learned about any of your ancestors that has surprised, humbled, or enlightened you and pass the award along to ten other bloggers who you feel are doing their ancestors proud. Here are the 10 things I have learned from my ancestors.

Glenda said...

Hello from Oklahoma. I have been researching my families for years, and last night all of a sudden I thought of doing a blog on family researching...I built one, and put a couple of items on it...but I really don't know how to start. Floundering a little...I tried to join the geneobloggers site, but I can't get to anything but the menu. I would like to get started on this...do you have any suggestions.
thanks..glenda

My Life said...

Hello, you don't know me but I too am related to Marin Boucher through one of his son's with Perrine, Pierre Boucher. He is my 9th Grandfather. I haven't had a chance to go through your website but have you found this site? http://www.nosorigines.qc.ca/genealogie.aspx?lng=en. It is wonderful and has lots of information. Just do a search for Marin Boucher.

Happy blogoversary :)

podso said...

Hey Lori,

Just a funny blogger wrinkle to tell you. Often when I post a comment on someone's blog, your blog address sort of flies across the comment area. I wonder what that's about. Nothing either of us can do about it, it's just a weird little thing. Sometime's it's one other blog as well. Who knows? ! Hope you're having a good start to the fall. Enjoyed your story on sunday favorites this week! (sept 10)
