How do we connect with others today?  My Dad who passed away in 1992 would not believe what has changed in twenty five years.

During my work on I have connected with a second cousin. We are now sharing pictures and stories of our heritage on phone, e-mail, tweets, texts and would love to connect in person but we live about 20 hours apart.

Connecting with friends and family in person is always the best-- a hand shake--a hug- attending a special event for someone would be best.

Church is a great place to connect.

A special meal:

Even a fun game:

Today I'm connecting with all you great ABC bloggers!

Fun game

Over the holidays we had the best time playing a new game.  You could play this anytime you wanted to-not just Christmas.  I can imagine this with Easter treats to.

"Christmas Ball game"

You start with a layer of saran wrap and add a few goodies--candy--anything really for fun. Start rolling a ball and adding more goodies every layer. Ours had batteries, hand sanitizer and money for examples.

The added fun is you have to unroll when it is your turn using a variety of hand covers--mitts-gloves-mittens. A timer is set and you try to unroll-whatever falls out is yours by the time the timer goes off.

Some of us tried it blindfolded. Not I.

Some onlookers--ages 5 to 90 participated!!!!!

We had the best time all together!!

Are You Ready?

ARE we ready for round 20??

I'm putting on my thinking cap and am going to make an effort to stay ahead and keep up every week.

Get out those ABC blocks and study those dictionaries!! Hopefully we will get someone to keep up with the meme and I have so appreciated Denise, Roger, Leslie, Gattina, Melody, Joyce, Di, Pheno and Troy for their great work.

I tell you one thing I AM ready for and that is the NFL Playoffs. Our beloved Kansas Chiefs are in the AFL and we are only two steps away from the Super Bowl!!!!!!

2017 is up and running and I hope to enjoy the next 26 weeks with you!!!

As I am working on my genealogy lately I feel like I have looked at a zillion records!!

Zillion  is defined as an extreme number of things. I think this fits what I have looked at. I am researching both maternal and paternal ancestry lines for myself and my husbands famililies.

All together I have information on 422 ancestors. One of my grandmothers was born in 1651 in Somerset, England and immigrated to Virginia in 1624.  She died in 1762 at the age of 111 years old.

My 7th great grandmother lived in Colonial life before the American Revolution.

My 7th great grandmother also lived in the turmoil of the French-Indian War.

You wouldn't believe how many women were named Elizabeth, Mary, Catherine--they all run together there are a zillion Williams, Adams, Johns and I'm trying to figure out which ones belong to me.  But I do really enjoy researching!!!
