Newsworthy Notes of Old

It's been one of those months. I've only kind of dabbled in my past. Today, during my "dabble" time, I came across another website I thought you might like to peruse.

The website is Newspaper Abstracts and it appears to be contributions from volunteers. I did a quick search to see if there were any abstracts of interest in my search. There were not.

There are also no abstracts from any Fayette County newspaper. This would be an interesting project should anyone want to jump on it.

I've signed up for the email newsletter so I will be interested to see what pops up. If you look at the site, be aware. The clicks on the sidebars quickly redirect you to two paid sites which do have loads of newspaper articles.

It's worth a look-see in my dabbling opinion.

To Abandon or Not?

Just thought I'd pass along this tidbit.

I checked on the status of HR 6056 bill today and the latest press indicates it "appears to have been abandoned." Of course, it could have also been incorporated into another bill.

I'll be sure to let you know if I hear of anything else on the subject.

No Vote Today

I checked online and saw where the alleged vote on HR 6056 did not
happen today. The bill is still in the Subcommittee on Information
Policy, Census and National Archives.

What I did find was a very informal unofficial vote that indicates
the overwhelming majority of the online people who voted shot the
bill down.

This will be interesting to follow.

I'll let you know when more information surfaces.

Home Again

I've been remiss. Actually, I've been home.

Home to my roots. Home to where my soul calls me. Home with my toes in the sand.

For the past several days, I've been basking in the sun in the lowcountry and thinking about the past. For me, that past is the 1870s when my maternal great grandparents landed in this area from Sweden.

One of my cousins dropped by with a DVD for me. This DVD had movies from the early 1950s on it. I cried as I saw my grandparents in the video. I cried as I saw my beloved family members who are all gone. Here they were laughing and smiling again. Today,they are smiling in my heart.

If you've got ole movies hanging around, please take the time to review them. Take the time to get them on DVD. You'll journey back to the past with happy tears.

My cousin promises to bring me World War II video next. I can hardly wait.

Until next time, you can find me on the beach. I'm easy to find. My toes are dug in the sand and I have a faraway look in my eyes.
