August 13, 2014 POPE TREE SERVICE All Your Tree Service Needs Commercial 76o Explo.ring Genealogy As The Acorn Falls by Sherry Wilson Lutes email.'genealogyfirst@gmail.com I have spent several days visiting with relatives and friends. I have had such a great time remembering those crazy days of yore. My sides are about to split from all the laughing! There has been some tears also. I have enjoyed it all. I hope you are taking time to share your stories. This week's 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy is on dinner time. I remember one time my mom recorded a dinner meal. Later she played it back to show how noise we were[ I don't think it made much of a difference after a few meals. The FAN club - The Family, Associates, and Neighbors club. Your ancestors had family, associates and neighbors that can be a great resource for tracking down your elusive ancestor. If you are having problems locating your ancestors, try searching for their neighbors. If you have found your ancestor in a Federal census, make a note of the neighbors on both sides on the census. Many times your ancestors name can be misspelled but their neighbor may be correctly spelled. Also they may have been related or of the same religious denomination so they moved together. Your ancestor may have been a member of an institution and they may have moved or lived around each other. Find anyone your ancestor may has associated with to help with your research. Next week - German names part 1 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy (Each week I will be giving you a prompt that will invite you to record memories and insights about your own life for future descendants (52 weeks of Personal Genealogy). Write down your memories on your computer, in your journal or start a new journal.) Week 32:Dinner Time. On a typical childhood evening, who was around the dinner table? Was the meal served by one person, or was it a free-for-all? What is dinner time like in your family today? Last Week - Week 31: Grandparents' House. Describe your grandparents' house. Was it big or small? How long did they live there? If you do not know this information, feel free to describe the house of another family member you remember from your childhood. Taken from "52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy and Family History" by Amy Coffin. Amy's blog is located at http://wetree.b/ogpost.com Grow, Bigger, Faster ... It happens every year. In the spring the garden is bare and brown and the plants very small. Tiny, in fact. Nevertheless, we know what the future holds so they are spaced well apart with the knowledge, acquired through painful experience, that they will grow. And grow. It takes forever, it seems, that growing. Perhaps add an eggplant here, a pepper there, fill in just a tiny blank space. Then in July all the plantlets take heart from the warm sun and, OMG, ye olde tomato/ squash jungle is here again[ Except this year there is a giant crawling kale in the mix along with an undergrowth of wild arugula...somehow the failing memory didn't register the fact that three squash plants can expand to a circumference of eight feet and grow to a height of three feet if it's an inch. Egad...and they are producing squash[! Would that the tomatoes/eggplant/peppers/cucumbers produced as much except they probably will, two weeks before the first frost. The nature of this jungle also means that finding ripe veggies is like a Big Game hunt in Africa. Plunge into the darkness under the canopy, leave the old head in position while eyes get used to the dim light, spy, OMG, there's a Giant Pattypan Squash! How did that escape notice when it was, well, within reasonable limits? What will we DO with it? Slice, marinate, and grill on the barbecue is this year's recipe of choice and glad we are to have found it. As long as the squash haven't grown past the dimensions of the little grill, that is. Soon the same thing will happen with tomatoes. They creep up on you, the tomatoes do. There are a few green ones toward the top of the plants that take forever to get ripe but one day with the old head in its usual position under the squash canopy there will be a gleam of red piercing the dim green twilight...a tomato, hidden in the depths of the jungle! Look! Another one!. Hunting veggies is great sport; someone should clue in the NRA. And next year we'll plant things more rationally. Yes, we will! ] LVI3r '300]lto-ugl00t by Michele Harvey So Many In Need I volunteer for Feeding America, a food distribution program for people in need of help. Feeding America helps people by giving them nutritional food. I also volunteer for Mountain Manna, a food distribution set up and run at our local Community United Methodist Church. Here in and around Julian we have an unbelievable number of people who need help getting through each month. If we can help them by introducing them to one of our local food distribution programs, then maybe they will have enough money to pay their rent and keep a roof over each of their heads. In Julian we have Feeding America, which supplies food that is donated by large companies and by individuals. In Julian the food items are distributed on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month in the west parking lot of our public library. Though the distribution can consist of canned goods, rice, beans, oats or cereals, we always give away fresh fruits and vegetables. Distribution is from 10am until 11am, and I advise people to get in line early. Occasionally we run out of some items. When this happens, late comers can't have as many items to take home to help them make it through the month. Feeding America doesn't have financial requirements to pick up food. If you come for food, we trust you to have a real need. On the 4th Saturday of each month, at 9 am the Community United Methodist Church of Julian distributes food through their Mountain Manna program for people in need. Members of the church pay for this food through their monetary donations. When you sign up to get Mountain Manna food the first time, you fill out a form stating your income. People with low incomes are eligible for Mountain Manna. Mountain Manna gives canned goods, dry pasta, fruits, vegetables, rice, dry beans, eggs and at least one meat product. Though it begins at 9am, people begin lining up by 6 or 6:30, If you need help stretching your budget and if your income is low enough, come, sign up and get a number because we let people in in numerical order and sometimes we run out of some items. Vee Lumpkin used to be in charge of the government (food) commodities distribution at the Julian Town Hall. She stopped doing it when most of her volunteers left the area and I heard that this distribution moved to the American Legion parking lot. Commodities has been distributed in Julian for more years than I remember. When I volunteered with this program in the middle 1990s the amounts of food were dwindling from lots of staple foods to just a few. After that, the quantities increased again. However, now I can't find any current information on whether or not the commodities program still exists locally. Meantime, I keep a few things in my cupboards at all times, and it helps me to use the food we get from Mountain Manna and from Feeding America. I always have salt, pepper, sugar and flour. I have a small jar of cinnamon and sugar mixed. Cinnamon is a good seasoning for desserts, coffee, oatmeal, vegetables and other foods when you want to kick up the flavor without adding heat or calories. I keep a jar of dried Italian seasoning to use in pasta sauces, on chicken as it bakes or to mix in olive oil for a quick salad dressing. A few packages of ramen noodles are good to have on hand. You can add'leftover meat and some fresh or leftover vegetables for a complete meal. Cans of tomato sauce or pasta sauce are good to have along with pasta which can be any kind. ,I prefer spaghetti, which comes with Mountain Manna food. Adding a variety of chopped vegetables while cooking pasta sauce adds different flavors, colors and textures to a meal. Homemade pasta sauce" can be very easy to make. Using food that comes from Mountain Manna, begin with a can of tomato sauce. Add about half a teaspoon of Italian seasoning, and then add any vegetables that you have. Add chopped or grated carrots, cut up and skinned squash, cut green beans, chopped tomatoes and any other vegetables that sound tasty. Add garlic if you want. I like to keep a few things on hand to make meals out of odds and ends of donated foods. See how creative you can get even if you are needy, your meals don't have to look skimpy on flavor. These are my thoughts. Pet Photo Contest There's still time to enter your pet's photo in the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA's 2015 Photo Fundraiser!

"When children are not vaccinated, not only are they at increased risk for disease, they can also spread illness to others in classrooms and in homes." Children who are 4 to 6 years of age are due for boosters of four vaccines: DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis-- whooping cough), chickenpox, MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) and polio. Older children, like preteens and teens, need a Tdap booster shot to protect them against tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also recommends that teens get vaccinated against human papilloma virus and meningococcal disease. A yearly flu vaccine is recommended for all children 6 months and older. "The vaccinations that are recommended by CDC are just as important as those that are required for school entry," McDonald added. Parents can obtain the vaccines through their regular medical provider. People with no medical insurance can get vaccinated at a County public health center for little or no cost. Local retail pharmacies also offer some vaccinations for a fee. For more information about the required back-to-school vaccines, call the Health and Human Services Agency Immunization Branch at (866) 358-2966, or visit sdiz,org.
