I had a great time and hope your summer has been good. Now we need to get back to the grind stone. Many of us visited with relatives, so remember to write down those memories. If you haven't started your 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy start now. There are some greats prompts coming up. German names part 3 Occupational Surnames - More commonly found in German families than almost any other culture, these last names are based on the person's job or trade (Lukas Fischer - Lukas the Fisherman). Three suffixes which often indicate a German occupational name are: -er (one who), commonly found in names such as Fischer, one who fishes; -hauer (hewer or cutter), used in names such as Baumhauer, tree chopper; and -macher (one who makes), found in names like Schumacher, one who makes shoes. Next week - German names part 4 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 35: Weddings. Tell us about yqur wedding You may also talk about your future wedding, the wedding of a relative or shape this question to fit your own life experience. Last Week - Week 34: Smells. Describe any smells that take you back to childhood. These could be from meals, fragrant gardens, musty basements, or something entirely different. Taken from "52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy and Family History" by Amy Coffm. Amy's blog is located at Fun With Yard Art continued from page 3 Another idea for making your yard cozy is to use bamboo fencing. Rolls of 6' tall fencing made with 1" wide bamboo can be found at many home improvement stores. If you have an ugly wire fence, this bamboo fencing can be securely wired to. it to provide privacy and a warm, tropical feeling. Other yard art can be wired to the bamboo fencing for a striking effect and plants look great in front of bamboo fencing. You can also place heavy bamboo fencing overhead on a frame to provide shade. Lashing the bamboo to a sturdy frame with a polypropelene plastic rope or heavy wire can last for many yea(s. Rugs, umbrellas, kiddy pool gardens Outdoor fabric is available in many wonderful, colorful designs and can last outside in the sun for many years. It can be used to quickly spruce up outside furniture and shade cabanas. It can be staple gunned to a wooden trellis or fence to create a piece of art. If you like to sew, this sturdy outside fabric can be used to make colorful windsocks of your own design I made a large 8' long windsock that looks like a jellyfish Its long trailing fabric tendrils look great when flowing in the wind. Thrift stores and yard sales can provide a treasure trove of possible yard art. I have found that clean, but slightly musty, used rugs can be bought for little money and are handy for outside use. As long as these rugs are fairly thin, they will dry on their own in a warm Thoughts by Michele Harvey Yes, sometimes I like Facebook By Michele Harvey I hear lots of reasons to stay away from Social Media, specifically Facebook. However, here in the back counU'y we do what we can to help each other. With pages named Julian Community, Julian for Sale and Ramona for Sale, we post items that we want to sell, items that we need, bake sales to help pay bills and alerts about traffic accidents and locations of bad weather or bad road conditions. Yesterday I looked on the local sites and found a few posts worth viewing. From my friend Pete in Ramona, we read a bit of ecologically sound advice. "No shitzky comrades! Even if you live in a single room with no water. You can grow veggies somewhere and cultivate the soil to put Carbon back into the Earth! We are living on the planet as if we have another one to go to." I remember growing tomatoes in a pot on an apartment balcony. This was in the late 1960s. Even if you have no land, you can still grow edible herbs in a window. Here is another post from Pete. Pete is very political and often tells people that they need to make the difference in our world. He is right. Remember that Richard Nixon lost the presidential election to John F. Kennedy by just a few hundred votes. Pete often reminds us to get involved. "All House seats are up for election this year. Vote, it really does matter. You can register here:" Thank YOU Pete. We all need to get involved in what our government does. I consider my friend Erica to also be an activist. This post about nutrition is from her. She also keeps us up on ecological facts like the ones concerning the disappearance of domestic bees and the effects of GMO tainted plants on wildlife. It's good to have someone who takes time to research important subjects that many of us are interested in, yet we can't find the time to find this noteworthy reading material. All children deserve to start the school year with the nutrition they need to learn. Donate milk to those who need it most. #MilkDrive http:llmilklife.comlgive Another post from Erica, a person who clearly cares about other people. "Julian Community So I'm thinking if there's anybody up here who has anything of value that can be recycled let me know I have a few friends that could use a little help. And I think this a cool idea. re: cans, glass bottles, anything that says can redemption I believe it's called." Let's all look around to see if we can help a friend or neighbor who can use a little bit of assistance. Just a thought.., from Tera, one of my Ramona friends. "For all my friends, whether close or casual, just because. Everyone will go through some hard times at some point. Life isn't easy. Just something to think about.., did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness ale the first to get mistreated? Did you know the ones who take care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most? Did you know the three hardest things to say are I love you, I'm sorry, and help me? Sometimes, just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their smile to see how much pain they may be in. To all my friends who are going through some issues right now--let's start an intention avalanche. We all need positive intentions right now ...... give a moment of support to all Of those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just need to know that someone cares. Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune. I hope to see this on the (Facebook) walls of all my friends just for moral support. I know some will!!! I did it for a friend and you can to." I edited this post because the instructions that I took out were for Facebook users, such as copy and paste. These three Facebook friends of mine are special people. They care deeply about the people around them and they care deeply about our country. Please take a few moments to read these Facebook posts again and consider what you as an individual can do to improve our neighborhoods, our friendships and our country. Facebook can be a complete waste of time as actress Betty White once said, or it can be used to help yourself and help others in many ways. I really enjoy the sense of community that I feel when I can help someone find what they are looking for, be it an item or an identity to a photo they have posted. Kniowing what kind of spider or snake you found near your front door is important. Learning the time and day of a local event shows that Facebook can be very important. Finding the owner of a lost dog, or for me last year, finding a cherry pitter makes Facebook extremely important to locals. These are all good reasons to use Facebook. Facebook can certainly be full of things we don't want to see or know about. However, I look at the positives that it brings to our homes. These are my thoughts. climate. If need be, they can be hung up on a line to dry after a soaking rain. These rugs. can help keep dust down in a sitting area and provide a colorful, cozy presence. They can easily be kept clean by sweeping with a broom. Long rug runners can be nailed to an outdoor wooden stairway to provide traction and a lush beauty. Other recycled items that can ac~l an artistic dimension to your yard include framed oil or acrylic paintings securely hung on building walls or fences, ceramic lamp bases partially buried in sand placed in a birdbath or on the ground, painted pottery or metal/wire objects hung on fences, colorful plates placed in the dirt at the base of bushes, large used umbrellas lashed to a swing or bench, and repainted together in an outdoor sculpture. Jellyfish windsock made with outdoor fabric wicker furniture to sit in or lashed Wicker baskets of all sorts can be placed at the base of trees to provide shade for the roots along with existing mulch. Old plastic swimming pools (perhaps shaped like a frog or boat and punched with nail holes) can be filled with potting soil and planted with flowers. If need be, place chicken wire along the inside of the sides and wire some over the top to keep squirrels out. I encourage you to use your imagination when decorating your yard.
