That laughter is the only cure for grief And l believe that love is stronger than death. -- Robert Fulghum Throughout history, basil has been thought to incite romantic passions; in Italy it symbolizes love. - Exploring Genealogy As The Acorn Falls emaib}eShaelorr~yl~gnaLuteo Sm I recently heard about the German information that I am sharing today. My maternal grandparents were from the German part of Switzerland. So I guess I kind of fall into the German descent field also. Summer is winding down, a lot of schools are already back in session. I t ope you had a chance to share your 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy-. You may still have visitors coming so be sure to share your memories. German names - part 1 In the 1990 U.S. Census, 58 million Americans claimed to be solely or partially of German descent. According to the 2005 American Community Survey, 50 million Americans have German ancestry. German Americans represent 17% of the total U.S. population and 26% of the non-Hispanic white population With roots in the Germanic middle ages, German surnames have been around since the 1100s. They are often very easy to identify, if you either know a little German, or know which clues to look for. Names that contain the vowel clusters ue and oeindicate umlauts (Schroeder -> Schr5der), providing a clue to German origins. Names with the vowel cluster ei (Klein) are also mostly German. Beginning consonant clusters such as Kn (Kn0Pf), Pf (Pfizer), Str (Stroh),Neu (Neumann), or Sch (Schneider) indicate possible German origins, as do endings such as -mann (Baumann), -stein (Frankenstein), -berg (Goldberg), -burg (Steinburg), -bruck (Zurbr0ck), -helm (Ostheim), -rich (Heinrich),-lich (Heimlich), -thai (Rosenthal), and -doff (Dusseldorf).

You can also discuss the nicknames of other family members, both past and present. Last Week - 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? Taken from "52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy and Family History" by Amy Coffin. Amy's b/og is located at http://wetree.b/ b3r L:vn de Jrerse v Lyn de Jersey British national married to an American and living in the Lake Henshaw area for the past year. She started keeping a diary of the birds and plants she sees around, and other things that interest her. It began as a record for her own benefit so that, for example she could compare bird migration patterns year on year. It's developed over the weeks into a story of her journey, as a foreigner, to settle in April 30 2014 Another snake! Not yet identified except that it's not a rattler (no rattle) and not a ring neck (no ring), it's about 18" long, brown and black pattern, small head, nothing much else obvious. Why can't a person find a decent herpetologist when they need one? This herp has taken up residence in a gap in the wall vacated by the poisoned (with herbicide) ivy which is giving me the jitters as it's on my path to the greenhouse & compost heap. If it does turn out to be the biting sort my ankles will make a juicy target as I to and fro. My attempts at wild plant identification are going better than the bird attempts. Probably because plants stay put and .you can walk right up to them, poke them, sniff them, turn over their leaves, and check out the company they keep and the nei hbourhood they live in. You can go back to the same spot several more times to see what they're up to and they'll still be exactly where you left them. Birds on the other hand are generally so far away that even with, binoculars it's hard to make out their features and they either move all the time or stay dead still for so long I have to put the binoculars down to rest my arms and eyes. Frustrating, but nevertheless progress is being made. Birds first: robins have appeared in the garden. Now I've put them next to the Say:s phoebes the difference is glaringly obvious and you'd be forgiven for thinking only a complete dimwit could have gotthem confused. In my defence, what I've known as a robin for the last 50 years looks nothing like an American robin- not even kissing cousins. Black phoebes are nesting under the eaves on the west side of the house. We thought it was wasps at first and Mark blasted the half- built nest with a high-powered an alien and unknown environment. hose. The next day it was back and we realised it was a bird's nest and we decided to leave it for them. We might yet live to regret that as they spend the rest of the summer pooping their way in and out - all over our new 8' by 15' glass sliding doors. The birdbath continues to be a popular attraction, especially now I've landscaped the immediate area. Well, I've put some potted plants around it and stuck a few twigs in for perches. Yesterday I was royally entertained by a hummingbird that first stopped at the honeysuckle (one of the aforementioned potted plants)for a feed, then jumped into the bath, stood directly under the spout and had itself a shower. By the lake I've spotted a large heron, probably a blue but too far and too_still to be sure, as well as a pair of black and white hawks but again no ID. The pelicans are back, four of them anyway. Or maybe they never left when the rest did. Either way it's been nice to see them again this week. The M;nDroomHomo eagles are hunting pretty much daily. It was the turkey vultures that gave me a real rise though. Six of them huddled together at the. water's edge, hunched over for all the world like ancient Greek peasant women knitting and gossiping about all the village goings-on. Reminded me of the '60s BBC show Animal Magic. Johnny Morris would have had a riot putting a dialogue to that scene. Anthropomorphism may not tell us anything about animal behaviour but it makes great comedy. I am convinced I have bladderpod. No, not an unpleasant urinary tract infection, a rather peculiar shrub, also known as stinkweed. I saw some the other day while I was walking below the dam, did the usual touch and sniff test, checked out the bladders, leaf shape and colour, growth habit etc, came home and consulted the book. In all respects it couldn't have been anything else, except for the smell. The book described it as malodorous but l rather liked iL It was reminiscent of a mix of fenugreek and Roscoe after he's been out all night. On reflection that combination probably would be a bit of an olfactory turn off to most people. But it's not as odd as it sounds. One of my raised beds is turned over to fenugreek as a manure crop at the moment and it's one of Roscoe's favourite digging spots so he does quite often have a whiff about him. Anyway I found some in the garden this morning and I'm positive it's bladderpod. One man's stinkweed is another woman's happy dog. I've also spotted penstemon scarlet bugler, red maids, checkerbloom and baby blue eyes in the garden and miracle of miracles, the California poppies survived the landscapers' onslaught on all things weedlike. I've decided, Somewha t reluctantly, to destroy the teasel seeds I brought back from England. Given the ferocious winds here and the teasel's remarkable ability to propagate I know that if I planted one, never mind-a whole packet, within ten years all of Lake Henshaw, Mesa Grande and Santa Ysabel would be covered in teasel thickets. My conscience won't allow me to unleash such an aggressively invasive non-native weed on the environment, much as I'd love to have them in the garden. Final note on the garden: against all the odds the borage has revived. It still looks a bit sickly but it's got new leaf and bud growth and I think it's going to make a full recovery. Obviously it likes the climate here. 2515 Dawncrest Court Julian, CA 92036 FEATURED AT $460,000.00 Two Story ~ 2,928 Sq.
