The Flowers of Late Summer
We can see that the weather is starting to change. It is late summer and Fall is fast approaching. We took the opportunity to take a walk around the huge Thanksgiving Point flower garden. The flowers were gorgeous and profuse. I am really thankful for flowers.

I am in  3rd cycle and middle of 4th cycle depending on type of roses. Peace rose is in beginning of 3rd cycle now and Don Juan which is very very prolific, is starting 4th cycle. Unusual if it reach 5th cycle. Glad I planted Don Juan instead of another kind of rose.

Sunflowers

Chile Peppers
I have acquired a taste for chile peppers over the years. They are rated according to the "Scoville" scale of hotness. A mild chile pepper might rate below 500 on Scoville scale. But a hot pepper can reach to the stratosphere of hotness with the Bhut Joloki...

Story
Introduction
I have more than thirty years' experience in law, computers and over thirty years experience as a research genealogist. I presently serve as a volunteer at the Brigham Young University Family History Library in Provo, Utah where I alternate between helping patrons and teaching classes. I am most interested in the technological aspects of genealogical research because of my strong technology background. My own family were pioneers who settled in Utah and Arizona in the 1800s. My family dates back to the Mayflower and with the exception of two family lines who came from Denmark, my family all came from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
