Thea I live in Oklahoma now and was born in Penna. Yes it is expensive but if one wants to know where he came from you can make it happen. The leaves are starting to come out on the trees here. It's raining right now of which we are in dire need. Starting to be concerned about the water table for we are on a well. Got to get back to my research.

Hi, I joined the Ireland group for two reasons, 1st my great grandmother was born in Spiddal, Galway. My GG grandparents, Barbara and Patrick Geoghegan and 1 sibling stayed in Ireland. I want to go someday and find their graves. I got tears in my eyes when I saw in photos of Spiddal,so beautiful, it must have killed them to leave and come to the states. The other reason is I LOVE primroses and there are  limited  varieties that you can get here. I have ordered seed  and plants from Barnhaven Primroses, in France and seed from Chiltern Seeds in the UK. I'm guessing  primroses are a big deal in Ireland as well?

William what state are you in ? i was thinking about you doing the ancestry thing . and wanted to remind you that you have friends in here and there may be some way we can help . i know that doing ancestry .com can cost quite a bit of money . the snow has not left the house yet . so i am praying that my little cherry trees are doing well . My husband just saw a bumble bee . so spring is on the way to my house . it will probly be another 2- 3 weeks before it hits there .

Hi Catherine decided to take a break fro the Ancestry I have been working on for 2 months now. The wind we are having here today must have came from you all it is 50mph plus since about noon time or there abouts we had some good gusts for the doors and windows where whistling dixie. A few fires have been started and eats up a lot of water which we don't have a lot of right now. Pretty much all the farmers ponds are dried up around my area.We are in a very high fire alert we need rain.

Lovely bed Catherine. Must be warming up there. We've had a couple of nice days here then it changes back to winter. I'm working on the garden a little but mostly house cleaning.

WOW! I thought it was one of the bushes that has the yellow blooms on it. Your Daffodil day is coming up soon isn't it?

Comment by Robin (N.IL zone 5) on February 25, 2012 at 2:32pm

I see in the picture of the tree down there are yellow blooms in the far background.

Comment by Randy Anderson zn.5/Il. USA on February 18, 2012 at 3:42pm

Swedish pancakes are like a Crape, Thea. I like them better though. Didn't have any Lingonberries for a topping which is more traditional then Maple Syrup. I think sure and lemon would work as well. Potato pancakes sound good too.
