I received a reply to last issues article about statistics in Australia, after guns were banned.
The gentleman noted that many Australians were buying large plastic tubes, to encase, and bury their firearms. Folks, that is like calling the fire department after the house has burned to the ground! Scenario: you are being robbed/beaten/raped etc., you tell the intruder..."excuse me, can you wait until I dig up my weapon, so that I may protect myself/my family/my property/my dignity?" Yes, I would also rather bury my firearms than give them up to fools! However, now in Australia, if you defend yourself with a firearm, even if it prevents you or your family from being killed......YOU ARE NOW THE CRIMINAL!! Make sense??? Use your right to vote, while you still can!!

Are cravings a sign of pregnancy:
If you're extremely tuned in to your body's rhythms, you may begin to
suspect you're pregnant soon after conception. But most women won't
experience any pregnancy symptoms until the fertilized egg attaches
itself to the uterine wall several days after conception. Others may
feel no different for weeks and begin to wonder only when they miss a
period. Sure it's a cliché, but food cravings sometimes can be a sign
of pregnancy. Don't rely on them as a sure symptom (it may be all in
your head, or even a sign that your body is low on a particular
nutrient), but if cravings are accompanied by other symptoms like
darkened nipples, fatigue, and swollen breasts, you might want to
start looking for an OB or midwife.
NOTE: Always follow the advice of your Physician!
Don't wait to poison-proof:
Children, especially very young ones, discover the world by putting
things in their mouth. Not all hazardous substances are obvious. For
children under 6, the number-one killer is iron pills. Lock up all
medications. Here are some other tips to keep your baby safe: Know who
to call in case of a poisoning and post the number near your phone.
Don't trust child-resistant containers. Keep medicines, pesticides,
even detergents in their original containers -- if a child does
accidentally ingest a poison, you'll know where it came from.
NOTE! Always check with and follow the advice of your physician!!

MOUNTAINGNOMES' FAMILY TREE NEWS
THE ORPHAN TRAINS:
One of the most remarkable phenomena in history took place in the late
1800's and early 1900's--the orphan trains from the East Coast to the
western sections of America. At the time, the streets of New York were
full of orphaned children or runaways. Crime was rampant and many
people felt that the children could do better if they were given the
chance to be adopted by families out West (sometimes only as far as
Illinois or Nebraska).
Search the Internet for information on the orphan trains. There are
several indexes that contain names of children who were sent West.
Sometimes the children stayed with a family for only a short time
before they moved on. Often the adoptions didn't turn out well and
children were treated as slaves. However, there were adoptions that
turned out extremely well. Many lawyers, doctors, and even governors
were orphan train children.
The orphan train trail is sometimes difficult to trace; it helps to
know where the person you're researching ended up. Check for
newspapers announcing the arrival of orphan trains in cities and towns
along the railroad routes. Another good source of information is the
Orphan Train Collection, located at: http://pda.republic.net/othsa/
