These old lantern were used in a time where they would have a canary fly ahead ..and if it return great if not get out of the cave. They attached these lanterns to their helmets for light. They give off a very bright light ..we used them for camping for awhile ..boy are they bright. The way they worked was water and cobalt ..the two mixeng and producing acetaylene ..which was the light(dad I hope I ma getting this right) Barry's dad has passed on...but I know he is proud of his son's and daughters ..for they all have came along way.

These dolls she made have been sent around the world with love and I think a prayer attached to each one. I know the girls had fun with the dolls ..GG(Nancy) had put elastic on the foot of the dolls so the kids could attached them around their feet and dance with them.

Has I had said earlier my dear sis TAGGED I am hoping the people I have picked will have fun with this oh yes my 5 weird things:


  1. Won't walk under a ladder.
  2. Still at my age cover my eyes throught the scare parts of the movies.
  3. I will not write on the back side of lined paper...just can seem to write or print neatly on that side of the paper.
  4. Oh yes ..if I should spill the salt I still sprinkle salt three times over my left shoulder.
  5. And funny this has stick with me since I was a kid ...stepping a cracks and breaking your mothers back.

so the people I am taggin are Alison , Kristin , Sharley , VJ's Scraproom , Scrapcat's Scrap Crap....I know I don't know you all but seem to like to meet and have fun....and these are your rules: List 5 weird things about yourself or your pets. -- Tag 5 friends and list them. -- Those people need to write on their blogs about 5 weird things, and state the rules, and tag 5 more people. -- Don't forget to let the people you tag know by posting a comment on their blog!

Well at my doctor's the other day ..they had posted some foods and drinks with info on them
this one was interesting:

McDonald's Shakes: Mcdonald's triple thick shakes look like ordinary shake.
You'd never guess that a large averages 1,120 calories and 28 grams of fat,
17 of them saturated.
That's about the heart-slamming fat of 2 Quarter Pounders...nearly the calories of 3.
Since when does a beverage supply half-a-days calories and close -to-a-day's work of artery gunk.
So next time the kids ask for the shake...think about that.
Well snow...snow...snow...snow....snow

boy it does not seem to stop ..
we have gone from hardly
no snow to all this. The pile of snow
on the stove chimney ..
is what has fallen
in the last 24 hours.
And it is still snowing
lightly now. But the sun trying
to come through.

Here's a couple more from Christmas ..this is DJ's place

Way to go DJ.....looks good

When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would
not have a single bit of talent left
and could say, "I used everything you
gave me."

This verse reminds me of my sister Barb ....she is so faithful to the Lord ..and has
used her talents to share with all of us.
In the last few weeks the Lord has blessed her and Miles with a
new home and a place of peace and tranquility.
And a view we all would love to have

Miles and Barb wishing you the best as you

you move into your new home come April.....

can't think of two people who deserve it more.

LOVE you two
