German names part 2 Patronymic & Matronymic Surnames - Based on a parent's first name, this category of surnames isn't as common in Germany as in many other European countries. Patronymic surnames are found primarily in the Northwestern areas of Germany, although they may be encountered in other areas of Germany. (Niklas Albrecht - Niklas son of Albrecht). Next week - German names part 3 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).

These could be from meals, fragrant gardens, musty basements, or something entirely different. Last Week - Week 33: Nicknames. What was your childhood nickname, andwhat was the meaning behind it? You can also discuss the nicknames of other family members, both past and present. Taken from "52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy and Family History" by Amy Coffin. Amy's b/og is located at http://wetree.blogpost.com The First Fruit Of My Labor Yes! The first tomato. Well, not the first, but the first genuine tomato sized tomato. We hasten to say that we don't want to disrespect cherry tomatoes, sweet and lovely in the warm sun, ready to eat by the handful, but cherry tomatoes are, shall we say, size challenged. (Can't be politically incorrect and say "small". It might hurt the tomatoes' feelings and, more likely, some tomato-twerp lawyer would enter a lawsuit against the Julian News and...but we digress.) Anyway, having nodded to political correctness to show that we are With It, we'll celebrate in anticipation of what we hope will be an onslaught of regularly sized tomatoes, the kind that can be sliced for sandwiches, peeled for cooking (cherry tomatoes being peeling- challenged as well as size-challenged) and otherwise used as regular tomatoes are used. AI of this is in the future as the celebrated First Tomato is considerably ahead of its feffow large tomatoes. Green tomatoes... there are some recipes that might work but they are still to be discovered. Fried green tomatoes sound good, Southern-ly delicious, suitably down home, but in fact tend to be acidy and hard on those taste buds along the side of the tongue and if there is a cornmeal crust on fried whatever that tastes good it is yet to be discovered. Green tomato mincemeat is another way to use green tomatoes but only once or twice a decade. Mincemeat, green tomato or otherwise, doesn't disappear easily in this household. So it's wait and look and put the old head into the tomato squash jungle to catch another gleam of red. Down the road await several kinds of tomato sauces, Persecute the Kid Tomato Chutney for which The Kid will probably need to be imported because it's too much work for The Mom, and many other lovely tomato dishes. Assuming, of course, that enough tomatoes get ripe before it freezes. Up here with our late seasons it's an annual hazard. Possibly, though, the fall will be late along with all our other odd weather and we'll eat our tomatoes, God willing, into November. Hail the tomato! The Julian News 5 lVIy Thoul00ltt s [[ by MicheleHarvey POPE TREE SERVICE Collections All Your Tree Servnce Needs I don't know why I've begun to collect things. I collect groups of things like most collectors, I guess. However, it seems to me that the people I know who collect things do it in some sort of order. My sister collects Western Art. She also collects photos and other items that are associated with Half Dome in Yosemite. Our family has visited Yosemite for generations and a few weeks ago, my brother who is a minister, gave a sermon in The Chapel of the Valley in Yosemite Valley. I guess he is collecting memories. My brother and his wife collect lodge d6cor. They have a great collection of Canadian Mountie posters. They also have a collection of Big Sky brand Bear Foot Bear Christmas decorations. I know women who collect kitchen items and I know men who collect items connected to their favorite sport or vehicle. My husband Mike has a collection of baseball umpire memorabilia because he was a professional high school baseball umpire for over 25 years. A few years ago I began changing the {heme of my shop, Julian Yesteryears. When we bought the shop in early 2005, the main theme seemed to'be of the 1950s and 1960s. I lived those years and had no plans to do it again. I enlarged some of the assortments of merchandise and gradually let others go away. I bought out some local stores when they sold or when the owners retired and the additions of each type of merchandise slightly changed the theme of my store. When the recession hit a few years back, some of the wholesale companies I bought from discontinued the items that were popular sellers for me, or the companies went out of business. I needed to come up with a new strategy, so I began making items to sell I began buying homemade items from a few close friends who make their own items to sell at craft shows and I began buying Not New things at auctions and at estate sales. As I bought from the sales, I began keeping some for myself. An item here and there didn't seem like much until I tried to find room for more items. I inherited an Indiana Glass Co. Pretzel Pattern clear round dish from my grandmother. It isn't an expensive piece. However, I really like it. Along with buying things to sell in my store, I have found and bought another round dish, 4 celery trays and a sugar and creamer set. Until I bought them, I never knew I could ever find a sugar and creamer set, or anything else from that same dish pattern. This is all Commercial Oak and Pine our Specialty CA.

Not only are crafts an enjoyable activity for children, simple crafting can also help children learn important skills that affect their overall development and is a way through which parents can observe their children's developmental progress to make sure they are school ready. It's important for parents to be in tune with their child's development during their early years because the first five years of life lay the foundation for a child's long-term success. That's why Easter Seals, the nation's largest nonprofit provider of early intervention services, and A.C. Moore, a specialty arts and crafts company, have teamed up for their annual Crafting A Better World For All Kids campaign from now through September 15th at the continued on page 9 is wearing a back pack, a baby jaguar, a pink bunny wearing bunny slippers and a black cat wearing jack-o-lantern slippers. These are just the stuffed animals that sit on my computer monitor and on the shelves above my computer. They are all close to Beany Baby size. On other shelves I began collecting stuffed bears that look like they need a home. None of them looks cute in the popular sense and I couldn't stand the idea of giving them to anyone who wouldn't love them dearly. My bears are in many sizes and now they have friends. To my collection I have added a chocolate colored bunny with floppy ears, an armadillo wearing a Santa hat, a stuffed dragon that has a silly look on his face and I have othe[ stuffed animals that are tucked here and there around my house. And I have begun other collections. I have a plate that was my mother's. It is blue on white with a California poppy design. When I was a child, mom kept this plate on a shelf in our breakfast room. Recently son Thomas found 5 or six more blue and white plates. He gave them to me because he knows I like the color combination. I have kept them because they were a gift from my son and I do like them. Until this week I wasn't sure what I would do with them because a few plates aren'tenough to serve a meal, so I just looked at them. Today I made a decision to hang them all. I found my collection of plate hangers and the plates will hang nicely among my collection of mirrors. When Mike and I bought Julian Yesteryears we called it Progressively Old Fashioned because we wanted to move the look of it from the 1950s and 1960s to the 1920s through the 1940s. Once we settled into the decades we liked best, we called the store Uniquely Old Fashioned. We maintained the old fashioned look and brought in products that showed off our theme. However, we noticed a few local retailers copying some of the products we sell, so one reason I changed my store theme again, was to remain unique in an economy where buying from wholesale companies became more and more difficult. Now that I am making many of our products in my home, and I am buying home made products along with many that are Not New, I add all of those to the hand dipped candles that are made in Massachusetts, the scented candles that are made in Idaho and the soaps and lotions that are made just 5 miles from Julian. I have store collections now. I keep and sell individuallya collection of storage jars, a collection of Japanese looking pieces, new and used cook books, heart themed glass and porcelain items and I have other groups and collections of things that I like a lot. I'm not sure how I began most of my collections, however every new piece that I find is a big part of a fun adventure. These are my thoughts. 7-he 00nnua Julian Uni00,ed 00ehodise Church 5epeember 1200h & 13eh Friday & 00aw00rr fay Health s Personal Services [ ". f H" arold K. Merrick MD G YN Blake A.
