If I could have your attention please!

     Ahem, I have an announcement to make, two actually.

     First, January is family month here in the "Kitchen". 

     As you may or may not know a big part of the blog is dedicated to my family research. Along the way I've gathered pictures, stories and some of my far flung cousins. All of my information is in serious need of an update. I'll be working on that throughout January. There might not be a lot of new posts, but there will be a lot of new material.

 For Family Members

If you have pictures, stories or recipes you'd like to share, email me. I'll include any new material as I'm doing the overhaul.

I'm slowly gathering things to do a memorial page for Leo, like I've already done for Grandma and Grandpa Fisher. If you have anything you'd like to contribute, email me. I'm hoping to have it ready by about June so....

For Non Family Members (there have to be a few of you who aren't connected to my family in some way)

If you'd like to share stories about your family or how you have researched your family tree, email me. I'd be more than happy to have a few guest posts.

     Second, February is social media month.

     As Google retires Friend Connect, learning how to use the various social media applications becomes a bit more important. I'm looking for authors to guest post about their experiences. Everything from rants about it being ineffective to raves and tutorials on how to use them. I am a rank amateur as the first post of February will show so don't be shy. I have a few authors on board but welcome more.  Nothing would please me more than 28 guest posts to follow my introduction. Hopefully a learning experience for all involved. Email me if you're interested.

     Thanks for listening, now I'm off to sift through over a thousand pictures and 300 family emails. Sure I can get it all done by January 31st.


  1. I have so many wonderful memories of Leo....I am not sure I can even pull them all forward yet.

    One that comes to mind is watching Hockey Night in Canada in their old farmhouse. You know how he had that easy chair right by the woodstove? There he'd be, explaining to me that the lovely man flying down the left side was named Guy and he was very fast....or keep your eye on this new kid Wayne: you'll never see one like 'im again.
    Then Jean would call to put another log on the fire and up Leo would get: dressed only in shorts and aleady sweating. LOL
    but he always put another log on the fire for her.

  2. Trying to get a post for Leo together is really hard, much worse than Grandma and Grandpa's were. I'll try and do him proud.


Thanks for your comment, I hope you enjoyed your time in the "Kitchen".
