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).

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.

Origin of Names – example

Filed under: Uncategorized — weavercat @ 9:18 pm

Where do names originate from?

A quick example off the ‘top of my head’ —


Franklin = has a Middle English origin, meaning “Free landowner”.

Delano = de la Noye:[is of Old French origin][meanings: Of the night|Alder grove.]

* Respelling of French De la Noye, habitational name, with the preposition de, for someone from any of various places called La Noue or La Noë.

Roosevelt = [Dutch origin] meaning, from the ‘rose field’ [or field of roses]:

* An Anglicized version of the Dutch surname VAN ROSEVELT, meaning “of the rose field.”

From reading this you can see that Franklin D. Roosevelt had a varied genealogy — English, French, and Dutch (or German).

Also, from the readings I have been doing about various European Protestant groups, Scottish Crypto-Jews, Sephardic Jews, and French Huguenot surnames. Many of whom were ‘forced’ to leave Europe because of the differing religious or political views.

He could/can have very well had genetic/ancestral “ties” to many of these cultural/genetic groups.

I do know that he is a very distant cousin on my tree — plus he is related to many of the other (previous) presidents of the United States; either by blood or by marriage.

Just a quick note of what you can find out about historical figures (you did not already know) by doing extended family tree research, and surname origins.

More later.
