Greetings to all folks near and far.

The last few days have been beautiful -- such a glorious show of color Spring is giving us here in Washoe Valley, Nevada. The daffodils are not shy and are popping up all over the place. Robins and other birds are out in full force singing and hanging out around bird feeders. The squirrels are coming to my patio every day now begging for their unsalted peanuts.

Did you know that the Gettysburg Battle had the largest number of casualties in the American Civil War? Do you know who were the two commanding Generals in opposition were? The nickname of one was "Marble Man" and the other was "Old Snapping Turtle". Come read my latest article for the answers.

Here is my latest article from the Appalachia site at
