Death of a computer…a new beginning

Filed under: Uncategorized — weavercat @ 11:52 pm

(Take two…)
Attempted this post just but a few minutes ago — stepped away from the keyboard — came back the automatic Windows 7 update had re-started my computer. [growl!]
I lost all the text I had written (now have settings a bit different, to prevent this problem from occurring again) — I hate having to re-write things when software/OS updates cause me to lose them.
——————–­——
Now, where was I?
Ahhh, heck — I think I’ll do something else and come back to this post. There are things needing to be added, set-up; and yet to be test-driven on this computer.
I promise to return – soon.
“And to continue…”

Happy Holidays!

Filed under: Uncategorized — weavercat @ 12:05 am

Happy Holidays!
Hope everyone has Happy Holidays – despite the moody/cold/wet weather that may come our way before Christmas.

I know many have been dealing with issues that life seems to ‘surprise us’ with; but you have to remember, there are people who care about you, and will listen if you want/need to talk.
Yesterday I spent trying to get my hobby room in order – but I never realized exactly how much yarn, string, floss that I have collected — it would fill a small room! (so it nearly does.)

Now, that I have that ‘stash’ somewhat sorted – what do I do with the rest of my treasures? Old school yearbooks, newspaper clippings, ticket stubs, old grocery list — outdated addresses/phone numbers on scraps of paper — You get the general idea…
Yes, CHRISTMAS is quickly approaching.
No, we have not completed our shopping list , yet.
Dave and I may end up creating gifts — at least a few. Others will be added as we can purchase them.
With the economy on the skids — I am sure everyone is trying to find ways to save money while not losing the true spirit of Christmas giving.
One long-tried tip? Trade days, flea markets and yard sales…
Not your style of gift source…well, give a try — you will never know what unique gift items can be found, and most very reasonable in cost.
The best quote I have heard lately — “Rare books, make for rare gifts”. So, most rare books won’t be found in a new bookstore.
Just a bit of a ramble for this first Friday of 2009.
Anyway, here’s hoping you have the best holidays possible. Drop a note my way if you get a chance during this hectic season.

Martin – Coat of Arms, surname meaning [LINK/Lead]

Filed under: Uncategorized — weavercat @ 8:04 pm

Family Tree Maker’s Genealogy Site: Photo

The ancient surname Martin is patronymic, meaning “son of Martin”. As Martin was such a popular first name in the Middle Ages, it is not surprising that the surname is very widespread. The name comes from the word “mars”, meaning “god of war”, and developed through Martinus and Marinus to the present Martin. Early records show a Helewis Martin in The Red Book of the Exchequer Rolls in Cambridgeshire in 1166; a Johannes Martynson was recorded in Howdenshire in 1379. The ancient family motto was “Sure and Steadfast”. Source: The Heritage Collection. No genealogical connection is implied.

Williams – coat of arms, surname meaning [LINK/Lead]

This distinguished family name can be traced as far back as the Domesday Book, with a Robert filius Willelmi recorded in 1086; Richard William lived in Oxfordshire in 1279, and a John Wylyam was recorded in the Subsidy Rolls in Sussex in 1296. Legend has it that the family Williams is descended from Brychan Brecheiniog who was Lord of Brecknock at the time of King Arthur. His seat was at Llangibby Castle in Monmouthshire. The ancient family name motto was “Cywir in Gwlad”. Source: The Heritage Collection. No genealogical connection is implied.

No Mail, No Phones Ringing

Filed under: Uncategorized — weavercat @ 3:17 am

No mail today…no phones ringing. Just a fairly quiet day — so what if it’s Labor Day? We had our cookout day before yesterday; and the smoked-meat has been a delight…don’t you wish you ahd some?

There has also been several hour of non-stop music — yesterday/last night while I sat watching YouTube music videos, and sat weaving on friendship bracelets.

Oh, there have been a few chores completed:

Laundry. Dishes. Sorting newspapers. Cleaning my workroom/office. Feeding the cats.

But for the most part, the biggest difference this week than last? Is the cooler temperatures, and being able to get things done (indoors and out).

Reminiscing…
Yes, that’s the word for my mood this “long” weekend.

This could be from reading old newspapers, while listinging to even older songs playing on my computer. Either way, I have some tales rattling around in my head that may get online, very soon!

Possible topics include:
1) How I got Enrolled in College.
2) How many strings does it take to reach from the 1990’s until 2009?
3) Dreams: Past and Present.
4) Too Many Kinfolks?
5) Family Stories: Animal Tales That should be enough tips for stories, for now. More to add here soon.
