"My Reason For Happiness"
something wonderful in my life,
that was never there
before I married you.
Being with you has given new meaning
to each sunrise we share
and each new day we welcome
And, in all our love
and our closeness,
Iíve found something within -
a confidence, a strength
I never knew without you...
You are my inspiration,
my reason for happiness.
You are my wife -
and my joy forever....
From Children: Stanley(29), James(27), Kimberly(25) and Jonathan(16)
She always leaned to watch for us,
Anxious if we were late.
In winter by the window,
In summer by the gate.
And though we mocked her tenderly,
Who had such foolish care,
The long way home would seem more safe,
Because she waited there.
Her thoughts were so full of us,
She never could forget!
And so we think that where she is,
She must be watching yet.
Waiting till we came home to her,
Anxious if we were late...
Watching from Heavenís window,
Leaning from Heavenís gate.
So if you have a mother,
Cherish her with care,
For youíll never know the heart-ache,
Until she isnít there.
Folks, all I ever hear, is the saying...."Time heals all wounds". Well, I'm here to tell ya, in a physical sense that may be true. But the emotional scars from losing a special loved one, are there forever! I don't believe that there is an hour in the waking hours, that some thought of her doesn't come to mind. She will be cherished, loved and remebered by all of us, forever!

Truck as big as a House:
- Help, I've fallen and I can't... Hey, nice carpet!
This is for all you folks who love trucks! One of the mines I was a mechanic at in Northwestern Colorado, Colowyo Coal Co., had some pretty good size equipment to do the job. This is one of the mechanics, Mel King, read to bring the 180 ton haul truck in for service. Here, Mel King, Charlie and myself have the truck in the shop, ready to service it. We worked the graveyard shift, which was always pretty quiet, but at times, difficult to stay alert! Needless to say, these bad boys moved alot of coal, every hour of every day!
See ya next time for more fun!

As a female shopper exited a convenience store, a man grabbed her purse and ran. The
clerk called 911 immediately and the woman was able to give them a detailed description of the
snatcher. Within minutes, the police had apprehended the snatcher. They put him in the car and
drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of the car and told to stand there for a positive
ID. To which he replied "Yes Officer..that's her. That's the lady I stole the purse from."

Fishing in the Black Hills of South Dakota is
primarily trout fishing in lakes and small streams.
Most of these are in the Black Hills National Forest
or Custer State Park. The largest lakes are Pactola
Reservoir, Deerfield Lake,and Sheridan Lake.
Some other lakes are Canyon Lake, Horsethief
Lake, Legion Lake, Center Lake, Roubaix Lake,
and Bismarck Lake. Streams in the area include

Coolidge Creek, and Spearfish Creek. Fish species
available are mainly rainbow, brown and brook

bass, northern pike and other warm water species
in the Black Hills.
Survival Tip:Survival Kit
If you run out of food, donít eat unless you can
positively identify nutritional wild edibles; the
chance of eating something unhealthy is high.
Remember, it takes three to five days before
hunger becomes a real problem, and much longer
for it to become a life-threatening problem.
We'll have more tips on how to purify water in the wilderness......coming up!!

There are no practical uses for this site, but it's strangely
addictive. To use an already overused phrase--you just have to see it
to believe it. Sodaplay is like an animated set of virtual TinkerToys.
You can build virtual wireframe models using a simple toolkit. Then
you can make your creation bounce, roll, and walk by adding "springs,"
which can be set to move almost like muscles. It's a tedious process,
and it takes some practice to create a workable model, so get ready to
become addicted (or frustrated!). If you aren't that ambitious, then
simply load an existing model, let it wander around and mesmerize you
for a while, and then start to alter it and see what happens. You can
adjust gravity, its shape, and the movement of its springs. And the
best part is after you're done, you don't have to clean up your room.

Do I Need a Prenatal Vitamin:
Not all experts agree. The American College of Obstetricians and
Gynecologists, for one, thinks a balanced diet will supply all the
vitamins a woman needs to see her through her pregnancy. But most
healthcare providers will recommend that you take a supplement, from
the time you decide to start trying to get pregnant through your
pregnancy. Why? It's almost impossible to meet your pregnant body's
increased needs for nutrients through diet alone. Your body is making
so much extra blood that you need about 30 to 60 mg of iron every day
(15 to 45 mg more than the RDA of 15 mg), and you need extra folic
acid (up to 800 mcg) starting even before you get pregnant.
NOTE: Always follow Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!
Keep a Cruising Baby Safe:
Once your baby starts cruising, they'll discover things you never knew
existed, prodding at potential danger zones right in front of your
nose. To ensure their safety, get down at their level and see what they
might grab when standing, cruising, or exploring.
Things to watch:
NOTE! Always check with and follow the advice of your physician!!
- Dangling electrical cords: Use electrical cord spools and phone cord
shorteners to wind up loose and excess cord lengths. While you're at
it, cap off outlets.
- Tablecloths: Secure them whenever they're under hot or heavy items.
- Pull cords for window blinds: Bind up all cords on window cleats or
ban the blinds.
- Sharp corners: Protect her from sharp table corners with cushioned
- Garbage pails: Consider the potential hazard of anything you drop
into the garbage. If you use the trash pail to discard batteries,
paper clips, or other dangerous items, make sure it has a
- House plants: Familiarize yourself with dangerous varieties and keep
them out of your baby's reach.
- Unsteady or unstable furniture: Remove it from the room. Secure tippy
lamps behind heavy pieces of furniture. Attach cushioned
corner-and-edge protectors to the sharp corners of file cabinets,
desks, and tables.

MOUNTAINGNOMES' FAMILY TREE NEWS
FINDING GERMAN ANCESTORS:
If you're researching your German ancestry, you'll want to know the
town or village that your ancestors came from. Often, the information
you find on birth, marriage, and death certificates gives nothing more
than the province of origin. If you're trying to locate the town or
village of a German immigrant, one source to consider is the census.
In 1900, census takers were required to record the number of years a
person had been in the United States and indicate whether that person
was naturalized. For instance, if, in 1900, a German ancestor had been
in the United States for 34 years, that ancestor would have immigrated
in 1866. Once you have the year of immigration, you can look for your
ancestor's name among the passenger lists of ships carrying emigrants
from Germany around that time. These lists will tell you the name of
the port your ancestor came through and, quite possibly, the name of
the town or village of origin. For instance, the Hamburg passenger
lists, which are currently being put online at
contain data about people who immigrated via Hamburg, Germany.
