Want to know how to cook for hundreds of soldiers or sailors? While recently searching for a coworker whose grandfather was a Navy cook on the U.S.S. Missouri, I stumbled across these little gems online. Just Google "U.S. Army" or "Navy Cookbook," and you will find out exactly how much it took to feed a unit of hungry fighting men. With minimum portions of about twenty and usually around one hundred or more; the sheer amounts of ingredients are a bit hard to fathom.
People everywhere were watching it and talking about how great of a show it was. I resisted for as long as I could, but finally, curiosity overwhelmed me, and I decided I just had to find out why everyone loves Duck Dynasty. My husband resisted for quite a bit longer than I managed, but in the end, he gave in and now he’s hooked, as well.
But, how to catch up on what has been happening with the Robertson family?
For all his success – the positive reviews and appearances on bestseller lists and attention from Hollywood – Daniel Woodrell probably isn’t destined to become a staple of high school literature curriculums. Winter’s Bone was a great read, and maybe an even better movie, but it’s not The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Here at the Midwest Genealogy Center, we remember our veterans every day as we utilize the resources available in our building (books, microfilm/fiche, and periodicals), in our online databases, and even the Internet.
My mother told me that her grandfather, Charles Curnow Ladner, fought in World War I and was missing in action. She said her grandmother believed that he suffered from shell shock and would one day come walking through the door. He never did return from the war, and my mother never knew what happened to him. I decided to find out. World War I service records are available, so I got a copy of my great grandfather’s dossier. His service records contained not only service information, but also letters that my great grandmother, Emily, had written.
When the weather starts to turn cold, it’s always a sign for me to start knitting up my holiday handmade gifts. I am the type of knitter who waits until the last minute to start working on projects, so knits that are short, sweet, and to the point are perfect.
This year’s plan for holiday gifts: Hats.
I’ve already had the chance to place several books on hold for needlecrafts and have looked through some books with great patterns to base my hats on.
November 22, Catching Fire will start playing in the movie theaters. I know I am excited, but I have to get ready for this movie. I will need a checklist of what to do before I can go and see the movie at midnight.
There is a growing trend towards using DNA testing to help trace one’s ancestry. But what types of information can be discovered using one of the many products on the market that are DTC (Direct to Consumer)? Are they worth the expense, and can they fill in information relevant to your family tree? There are currently several hundred genetic tests of many different types in use, with more being developed all the time.
Do You Like Spending Lots of Money for a TV Series That You Will Only Watch a Few Times???
Recently, my friends and I were talking about how there aren’t many family friendly shows on TV anymore. We were laughing and talking about our favorite shows that we watched back in the 80s and early 90s.
