I am now the proud owner of a little family tree that goes back to 1871 on my Mom's maternal side and 1841 on her paternal side. doesn't sound very far back but I'm so pleased with my progress. I do believe that genealogy (posh name for researching family trees) and scrapping, compliment each other. After all it's all about recording the moment or moments gone by.
Today after posting I have to catch up on the housework, buy groceries for the week, fix my car, as it's been playing up and not starting ever since going through three flood a couple of weeks ago. It probably just needs a spray of WD40 on the points or carburetor thingamabob hopefully. Plus I want to send of for some birth and marriage certificates from the Records Office for my new passion.
Anyhow .... here is the final installments of my little Funky Alpha. I hope you have enjoyed my humble attempt. I have loved every comment you have left me, I can't tell you how uplifting it is to be thanked. Thank you in return for all those that did.

I just love this quick page by Vicki, just right for my two favourite photo's of my hubby. I added a few elements to the QP as I wanted to use two photo's. The photo's were taken whilst on holiday in Javea, Spain. It was a special moment as we had just agreed we would look for our own house in the sun.

I love this photo of my mom aged 4. The handmade silk dress is gorgeous and so are those beautiful brown eyes.

The world's largest physics experiment is taking place today at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN).
4.4 Billion pounds to find a Higgs Boson and other particles, I am speechless. The comment made by Brian Cox, one of the mad professors taking part in this farce, left me speechless. When asked about not finding the Higgs Boson, Cox stated, "It will be more exciting in many ways because it will mean that we have understood much less than we thought about Nature", what absolute rubbish!
Yes, let's just throw more money at it, keeping Professor Cox and his cronies in a cushy jobs, and forget about those on this planet who are ill, hungry, uneducated, unemployed, homeless! Do they think we are stupid?
As to the 'Black Hole', people fear will be created today. Well here's a news flash, 'it has already been created', by politicians who run our countries into the ground whilst lining there own pockets! Just who is funding this tosh?

I was just wondering if any of you have had any issues posting or editing your blog whilst using the new Google Chrome browser. On one occasion it wouldn't allow me to insert a image, but the next day I tried it did. Then it wouldn't let me move the image to where I wanted it to go. The default position on Blogger always inserts the the image at the top of the post, how annoying is that at the time, and that's not always where I want it to go!
You know how it is... the photo's come back and you hate them. Cries of "My nose looks big in that one", or "That's not my good side". Well, I've found the 'one' photo I though made me look great! lol and here it is. I think I was quite cute when I was 4. I actually remember the ribbon and the dress.
Have you got any cute photos of when you were 4 or 5? I think I've seen one of you Vicki when you were a 'ickle' girl.
Catch you later my blog readers .... all 3 of you x

Lonnie my daughter did a cute little doodle for me and I've turned it into an Alpha. It's quite funky I thought and I'd love to share it with anyone who reads my blog.

I haven't posted for ages because I've been sulking. Very childish I know, but we all deal with things differently. Thanks for emailing me Vicki, I really appreciate it.
I will pop back later this week to post a little freebie I made ages ago for you.
