It's a shame that by the time that we get really interested in our heritage, all of the people that could help with it have all passed on. Don't we wished we would've taken the time when we were younger to ask those questions then. But we just didn't think about the importance of...

  • I remember eating these at my Grandma's all the time when I was little. She lived next door to me and that was convenient. I remember my Daddy calling the sausage ones "klobasnekies". those were the good ole days! My favorite are the prune and cream cheese! One of the others was the poppy seed rolls my Grandma made.

  • From what I remember, the people calling us Bohemians or "Bohunks" were from people who were NOT Czech. To me is was said in a derogatory way. All i know is that I did not care for it. I see myself as Czech even though I'm half Czech and half German. My dad was Czech and he spoke both Czech and English. He taught me of the Czech traditions and would sing the Czech songs and could...

After WWII, my dad got married and started his family (me). It seems all my life (up until he died in 1990) he farmed. His main livelihood was being a mechanic, but after hours and on weekends, he farmed. He would farm his...
