Hello everyone, well it has been a while since my last blog so today I decided to fill you in on what is happening. As you know I had this little rodent problem in my old house and it was either they leave or I do. They decided to hang around so I packed my bags and out the door I went. Grin. Would you believe in five days we had totally moved everything over to my new home? We checked everything to make sure we were not taking any hitchikers with us. I had to wash all my towels and bedding before we moved. I have more black and blue marks on me that anything else. I bruise very easy just like my dad did. By lifting the boxes and pushing and pulling furniture .

I love my new home, I have filled in the little holes around the pipes with steel wool,just in case. My home has wooden floors and no carpets, I love that, I always wanted hardwood floors.I believe it is healthier than carpet.
Well the nights are getting cooler, and the leaves are changing colors. I have a tree in the front that is all orange already. I love the fall colors.
I haven't done much genealogy the last few days, but while I was offline I added some information into my legacy family tree software, I have begun adding the occupations of the relatives that I know of.
I need to finish my 1861 census to add to my website, I have part of a page already done, but I need to go into the microfilms and get more names.
Next week a lady from my group will be coming to our genealogy center so I am going to try and meet her.Last night another member of my group from the USA dropped in for a short visit.
Now I must go to the store to get a vent for my clothes dryer, so thank you for dropping by, do have a great day.

Are you ready for a good laugh again? Well yesterday I decided to check to see if I could find more traces of the little varmints that have invaded my home. I was not too brave but I ventured into my living room, lifted the cushions on my loveseat, yep they were here. I wonder if they went under the big sofa cushions? So I ventured to the sofa, lifting the cushion ,expection to see some dropping. Guess what I found. A MOUSE , a real live mouse, and it was looking at me. I yelled there is a mouse under the cushion, my friend ran in lifted the cushion, he was gone, he lifted the other cushion, there HE was and he ran under the couch into the other room. Well my heart was pounding like crazy. That is it, I said. No more . I am out of here. so I went upstairs onto my computer looked at the places for rent. With two dogs let me tell you it isn't easy to get a place. Anyway there was this ad, house for rent, utilities and the phone number, so I phoned, told the guy we had two dogs, he was hesitant at first but we went over, I really liked the house , he had hardwood floors, I always wanted them, and a nice back patio, and it was in my old neighborhood, I really was hoping he would let us have it. And we got it, the dogs will be in the basement which is nice and dry, and I will be able to fix the house up nice . And he said there are NO MICE. yippeee. The way I felt after seeing that mouse I would have anywhere even out of the country which I did not want to , just to get away from the mice.
Now comes the big moving job, I want to make sure there are no mice in my stuff so I am going to repack everything.
On another note, I went to the genealogy center the other day, and looked into some microfilms of old newspapers, I wish I would have had more time to browse, but I will return.
I am in the process of adding some census for Shediac Parish on my website, but so far I have not finished transcribing them I am only adding the Acadian Names,I will let you know when they are finished.
I also want to mention that Lucie LeBlanc Consentino has added many many new cemetery images on her site, Hector LeBlanc and his wife Jeannita have been cemetery hunting, and they have taken images of cemeteries in Westmorland County, and Kent County and I am not certain if they have done any other counties as yet.And they have given Lucie permission to add the images on her site. So between Lucie's cemeteries and My cemeteries I am very certain that many of you will benefit .
Happy Hunting

It has been a few days since I last posted, but I have been quite busy, first with my yard sale. I decided to make one on Friday and Saturday. I had five tables to set up, and lots and lots of stuff to unpack. Well Friday it was windy, so I made it a short day, tables had to be cleared and put away again, Saturday at 7am I was out there hauling the tables back to the field and loading them up again. Let me tell you that at the end of my sale, I did not feel like dancing. grin.
I had the two dogs in the back and one of them is a yapper, and a customer mentioned my dogs, and I said do you want them? I was just kidding, anyway today Tuesday a loud knock on my door, I opened the door and this couple was standing there, I said yes? They replied "you said you had a dog to give away? " haha. I said I don't think my friend will ever part with them and I said I was just joking. So they left.
And I have finished my page on one of my Metis lines, I was looking for a beautiful native american song, and I found one but I had to buy it so I went to a video site and the site said I could use the video, so I have added it to the bottom of my webpage . If you go to my website at click on Acadian/Metis. Scroll to the bottom of the page you will see the url and the name Ashne Ate........ Hope you like it because I sure do.
I also added a list of links at the bottom of the page to other native american sites. Some are very nice sites and I notice so many people so dedicated to their work and on creating very informative sites.
Thanks for the visit do come again.
