      Hi everyone

      It's been a busy month for me, much of it spent "supervising" hubs tilling
      and planting a huge vegetable garden. I just harvested my first crop of
      fresh rhubarb a few days ago, froze it and pulled some out yesterday to make
      fresh rhubarb loaf. So good!

      On the genealogy side, I've been working on several projects but more on
      that in another newsletter. Here's what's been happening on my genealogy
      blogs recently - just a few blog posts from this week. The BIG news for me
      is that last month I sent for my MtDNA test kit and am eagerly waiting for
      results. You can follow my DNA journey on my blog if you are interested in
      this subject. See


      I also upgraded my brother's Y-DNA testing I had done two years ago. I'm
      also blogging about those results and inviting my readers to follow along
      with me as I learn and stumble along through the confusing but EXCITING
      world of DNA. I'll share with you that on May 25th there will be a blog
      post about my brother's Family Finder Results from one of the two upgrades I
      purchased. That's at http://olivetreegenealogy.blogspot.com/

      Time Traveller's Handbook is chock full of interesting facts and details
      that affected our ancestors' lives. If you have ever wondered how long it
      took your ancestor to sail across the ocean to their new home, you'll find
      the answer in this book. Perhaps you found a record of land ownership for
      your ancestor but you don't understand the currency or the measurement unit.
      This book has your answer to such questions - questions about terms or items
      used in every day life by our ancestors but not used or understood now....

      * Musings About Life and Dear
      from Olive Tree Genealogy Blog by Genealogy Blogger
      It's a special day today. My dearest and oldest friend J. is having a

      It's a birthday we weren't sure she would see. This past February J. was
      given 3 to 4 months to live. Although she has been struggling with cancer
      for several years, she seemed to be getting better. Things were going well.
      Then the blow.

      I'm still not sure how I feel about doctors giving patients an expiration

      Next week is going to be super busy with two of my grandsons, ages 3 and 6,
      arriving for a week's visit. I bought all kinds of specialty and convenience
      foods that hubs and I don't normally purchase - tiny yogurts, yoplait
      drinks, little bottles of apple juice, bag of cookies and so on. It was
      shocking to see the bill at the check-out - over $300.00!! Ouch, how do
      parents of young children do it?

      I'm looking forward to their visit as I don't see them very often. But I
      think I'm going to be very tired when it's over :-)

      All for now,
