Latest Happenings @ The MountainGnome

The Father of our Country:
Born in Westmoreland County, Va., on Feb. 22, 1732, George Washington was the eldest son of Augustine Washington and his second wife, Mary Ball Washington, who were prosperous Virginia gentry of English descent. George spent his early years on the family estate on Pope's Creek along the Potomac River. His early education included the study of such subjects as VALENTINES DAY FOR HER @ BC CRAFTS mathematics, surveying, the classics, and "rules of civility." His father died in 1743, and soon thereafter George went to live with his half brother Lawrence at Mount Vernon, Lawrence's plantation on the Potomac. Lawrence, who became something of a substitute father for his brother, had married into the Fairfax family, prominent and influential Virginians who helped launch George's career. An early ambition to go to sea had been effectively discouraged by George's mother; instead, he turned to surveying, securing (1748) an appointment to survey Lord Fairfax's lands in the Shenandoah Valley. He helped lay out the Virginia town of Belhaven (now Alexandria) in 1749 and was appointed surveyor for Culpeper County. George accompanied his brother to Barbados in an effort to cure Lawrence of tuberculosis, but Lawrence died in 1752, soon after the brothers returned. George ultimately inherited the Mount Vernon estate. MORE....

Outdoor Adventure: Osprey Lodge: Alaska
Experience the thrill.......
OSPREY LODGE offers an experience of a lifetime. Located in the Western slopes and foothills of the Alaska Range, its 3,000 foot airstrip makes possible a client's arrival at its doorstep.This airstrip allows twin-engine turbojet service from Anchorage. Clients do not fly through mountain passes and weather is usually not a deterrent in adhering to a schedule.

OSPREY LODGE, family-run and homesteaded in the early 70's, continues to produce an abundance of game. Its spectacular scenery and seclusion offers the hunter a unique and memorable hunt. Gary Pogany, pilot-owner-guide, has guided in the area for over thirty years. His knowledge and experience are invaluable in assuring the success of the hunter.

The Ski Lodge:Lutsen Mountains - Lutsen, Minnesota
Altitude Without Attitude!

For over 50 years, Lutsen has had the topography to lay claim to the largest ski area in the Midwest. And being the premier destination ski area in the Midwest means constant improvements and continual transformation. That's what you expect from a leader, and that's what we deliver.

It all started with one great idea...
Lutsen was founded in the 1880s when C.A.A. Nelson arrived from Sweden, built a home, and rented rooms to other pioneers. A family innkeeping tradition was born.......More

What has changed is that Lutsen stands alone as the best, the biggest, and by far the most exciting skiing anywhere in Mid-America, giving you the experience of a Western ski resort for a mere fraction of the price.

US Cavalry....For all your Sporting Need!!

Survival Tip: It is no shame to be lost.
Find water.
Your body will suffer first from exposure and second from lack of water. Your minimum intake of water should be between three and four quarts each day. Until next time: Be Safe ~ Be Happy!!

Aunt Sally's Custom Quilts:
Creating Tomorrow's Heirlooms Today
I'm so glad you like my site!! The background is one of my quilts. I was amazed that the designer could do that. Pretty cool, I thought.

All the quilts pictured are less than $350. The wildlife are the most expensive because I outline stitch all the wildlife and other parts of the scene to make it 3-Dimensional. Wildlife quilts pictured are throw (couch) size, but I have made them in full and queen for $600. I've recently received orders for Table Runners and Coasters with the Wildlife, so expect to see them soon!
I am also offering 20 % off any IN-stock quilt until Valentines Day!

From the editor:
NEW YORK...NEWYORK...(to the tune by Frank Sinatra)....we in North America thank you for keeping that white trash there, instead of here!! New York renamed "The Rotten Apple"-HAHAHAHA!! The Democrats accused John Ashcroft of bending and torturing the laws of Click Here For Large Image! the Country, while at the same time defending our previous presidents perjuring lies, immoral, depraved & perverted character, his involvement in fraud and treason. The Democratic Party has now stooped to nothing more than a Party of LOW LIFE TRASH!

To The Left: Al Gore Bids Farewell to CLINTON! Click picture to enlarge.

CLINTON'S LOOT WHITEHOUSE & AIRFORCE ONE: Heard on Paul Harvey: The Clinton's looted over approximately $100,000.00 worth of china and antiques donated by private citizens and organizations to the White House! Well, thank the dear Lord above, that the white trash has finally moved out.....heard Airforce One is also missing an awful lot of presidential articles and artifacts..."Slick Willy" should have been called "Sticky Fingers Willy", huh? I guess old crooked habits are hard to break. Damn, glad he don't work for me....'course then again he never did. The man's reputation shore does wanna make ya lock yer doors while drivin' thru Arkansas, don't it?!
Also the Low LIFE wants us to pay $700,00 + for his office rent quarterly! My God.. THE RAPE HABITS OF BILL "SLICK WILLY" CLINTON CONTINUE!!

I read today that the White House was trashed by the outgoing clintonistas. Phone lines cut; filing cabinets glued shut, computers tampered with, rendering them inoperable; pornographic messages (remember all that child and animal porn found in the White House last Autumn? See my article: Donkeys, Goats and Dogs – The Real Clinton Legacy) put into paper caches, scrawled with indelible ink on walls, left on answering machine messages; desks upturned and garbage strewn about—I say make them pay.MORE....

  • Bill Clinton: "I Do Whatever My Rice Krispies Tell Me To Do."

America seems to be more divided today than any time since the Civil War. Traditional America is represented mostly by rural and small town areas who are content to follow some of the customary ways, maintain the existing social and political structures, and to live and let live. The other America, represented by the Democratic elite and the progressive and liberal forces of the new left have no respect for those values as expressed by the Founders and which, over the past couple of hundred years, had made America the envy of the world. This "New America" wants to relegate all powers to the central state, only feeling fulfilled when inserting themselves into other people's lives. To show this stark difference it has been said that you can drive across America by various routes and never pass through a single county whose inhabitants had supported Al Gore by a plurality of the vote.

Going off birth control:
As tempting as it is to leap immediately from contraception to conception, you may want -- or need -- to wait. It depends on the type of birth control you're using -- some women have been on the Pill for upwards of 20 years. Experts recommend stopping the Pill for a few months before trying to conceive to let your cycles get back to normal. All you need to do for some methods, such as the diaphragm or condoms, is stop using them. Other methods, such as Depo Provera or Norplant, take some time to leave a woman's body. To find out how to boost your chances of becoming pregnant, check out BabyCenter's chart on birth control methods and reversibility.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!

Pacifiers are okay at night:
If you've fed, burped, cuddled, rocked, and otherwise tried to soothe your baby to sleep and she still seems to be fussing, go ahead and give her a pacifier. If used intelligently, and not as a substitute for nurturing, a pacifier is fine to help her settle down. If you're giving your baby a pacifier at bedtime only, and only for her benefit, not yours, she shouldn't become too dependent on it. And it shouldn't affect her dental development, either, unless you allow her to continue using it well into her childhood. This is because during the early months and years, when your child is likely to be using a pacifier, she has only her baby teeth; permanent dentition generally doesn't appear until around age 6.
NOTE! Always check with and follow the advice of your physician!!
