November 9 2011 Appalachia Newsletter

Greetings to all near and far.

Semper Fi, B.

To all who have served in our military branches past and present, I thank you for all you have done for our country and for us.

11/11/11 is Veterans Day -- please thank a veteran for standing up to protect us and our country.

Getting ready for Thanksgiving is a busy time in our family. Decorating is an important part of the holiday. Some of the Halloween decorations are left out, like the harvest type items, scarecrows, corn stalks, autumn flowers, and any uncut pumpkins. We add different types of squash to our pumpkin and flower arrangements on the patio and the front porch.

Inside the house, we set out candles and smaller flower arrangements here and there. It all makes the home look so warm and cozy.

Here is my latest article from BellaOnline Appalachia site:

Foxfire Museum And Heritage Center

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to stroll through the past for a day or so? To step back in time to the early 1800's and view the way it was is a wonderful learning experience. The Foxfire Museum and Heritage Center is a living history museum in Mountain City, Georgia, where you can actually experience the past.

I love feedback on my articles, so please come join me in my forum and chat with me about this or any other article, or anything else related to the Appalachia regions. I look forward to meeting you.

The voices of the Elders have given us stories of our heritage, our family history. Keep this heritage alive and pass on the voices, the stories to your children. Keep journals of what the old folks told you. These journals will become family heirlooms and treasures. Keep the heritage alive.

Till next time, may your home be filled with laughter and may it ring from floor to rafter.

May you walk in Beauty and Harmony.
