Why we should all be concerned about preservation? Yesterday (Tuesday 10th February) there was a fatal road traffic collision on the road that I use everyday to get to and from my place of work. Although, I was not an eyewit...

Following the recommendations of other to find my ancestor's military journey. #familyhistory   #WWgenealogy   #genealogyresearch  
The process of journeying back to your ancestor's time has been the discussion in many videos lately, which brought me post this. First I started at home.  I was wanting to know about the pictures I saw in my mother's picture...

Take the helps where you can find them. 
Since it is March and I am posting close to St. Patrick’s Day, I will talk about the search for my Irish family ancestry. My mother's father and grandmother had died by the time my mother was two months old.  Her mom, a moth...

The store only honors appointments. If you are traveling find a different store even a Wal Mart who will see you instead of waiting until the store is closed to take care of your tire. I sat in the store for 2 hours and 30 min. When asked why they were taking so long and why I was the only one left in the store the young man said we honor all our appointments first. Then I found out if you are in the area they go on their apps and say I am coming in and they are automatically given an appointment even if someone else has walked in that is traveling and given preference over them. Totally not the place to go if you are traveling.

Based on my several maintenance visits... I bought my Elantra 2011 here in Feb. 2012. The sales staff was courteous and helpful right through the time I drove it off the lot. My scheduled maintenance visits have always been exceptionally well handled. They have been quick, courteous, and kept my car in shape for my road trips. Thanks.

Dr Little was very professional, but personable too. He was interested in my family as people not just as patients. His expertise is readily apparent. He uses the best methods for diagnosing treatment plans and will work with you if it is costly. His emphasis is on prevention, but uses the best techniques for repair. I am very glad to have found him for our family treatment.

The employees are helpful and hard working. The out buildings, a blacksmith shop, log home, and storage of the Pawnee Bill Wild West Show were clean and authentic. The museum and tour was informative and interesting. My grandchildren love going there.
