Grace...I never miss Graham Norton if I can possibly help it, his
show is always very entertaining as is he. I saw him on 'Who Do You
Think You Are' that was interesting.
Isn't that marvellous of Brendan (Mrs. Browne) glad you mentioned
that, give an insight into his character, I think you can 'tell'
myself whether they are decent people or not..
Another good episode on Sunday...where the hypnotist does his thing,lol
really very funny.
Have a good rest Grace, it's natures way of getting back your strength,
I know the feeling, we should take a leaf out of the animals book, and
hibernate I think.
I will say Good Night now,
Good Night Everybody.
Golden slumbers 'til Thursday morn!:-)

Hello there Fish, very nice to see you here, want to wish you a
very Happy New Year.
That is a very interesting name to a genealogist, which I like to think
of myself as, lol...I do know that the surname Blanc is Hugeonot, I
believe that branch settled in Ireland....
Von Blanc certainly sounds German....have you tried searching for the surname on ancestry.com
Couldn't resist replying to you on this, one of my favourite subjects!
Hope you make yourself at home in the kitchen....you are more than welcome.
Thanks for the welcome El.
I see it's time for you to go to bed, so, Good Morning, if that's when you're reading this now.
I figured you might find that family history interesting.
My mom (and her mom) have passed away, so it's hard for me to get information (I'm an only child.). My uncle, mom's only sibling has passed away too. I will try to remember to ask one of my cousins on that side what they know about names, if I ever get to see them. It's funny how I get some of the old stories mixed up. But, I'm sure my mom told me she thought the "Blank" name was originally preceded by 'Von', I might have made up the 'Blanc' spelling. Records show Blank. Most of my life I thought my Grandpa on that side died falling out of a train caboose on his head (I think he was part German too and did work for the railroad.). I brought it up to my mom not too long before she passed away, about 10 years ago, and she laughed and said something like-'where did you get that?'. She said he died of brain cancer. I think my parents must have told me that when I was little, can't believe I made it up- in my mind.
I know, when you look at history books, there are a lot of 'Von-.....' Germans. One question is, was that girl right, was the 'Von' from some other place, from people that moved to Germany?

Hi Everyone,
I'm back,
had a wonderful post Christmas holiday..
Every day was special and wonderful and
evoking that Christmas feeling, from
traveling that part of FRANCE, observing the vineyards
and wine tasting ... to sumptuous meals and
massive log fires,
but I won't go on, as, hearing every detail about another's vacation can be boring..

Hope everyone's well.. and I DID *especially* come by
on New Year's eve to sincerely wish everyone here a
Happy New Year..

Who knows what's in front of each one,
and, as well we don't! but, having said that,
we, each must make the best of what 2013 holds
in it's heart for us all..
I was in Provance for two weeks. What fun!

A friend of ours is an avid birder. He spent two hours in a park looking for a migratory specimen. He is steamed because he found 52 species in two days! Last year was 100!

It's about projecting the attitude, I guess.

For his height, for Sylvester Stallone to truly fight as a 205 lbs heavyweight he'd either be quite fat, or be built like a offensive linesman ...

maybe the old Mickey Rourke but not as he is these days .. I find him too odd. Dwayne Johnson (The ROck) is a wrestler turned actor who could have done the part and has the size.

The prefix Von is often used in the Netherlands, but the word blanc means white is French .. so maybe it is from Belgium or Luxembourg which is between France and Germany and has French influences in the language?

Hiberation?? NOw there's a good idea .. I wonder if I can make an infomercial on that, how much money would I make? After all in the 1950;s they sold pet rocks.

The pet rocks were later in pop culture.

No, I have friends living in WI to the north of the city (which I've never seen incidently) and friends in St Louis (which is six hours away on Amtrak), both of whom I have known since university days. Trying to work out a trip to catch up with both of them.

I wish - it's just that I have the time over this winter: who knows when it will become available again. To be honest, can't really afford it, but unless I do it, time will slip by. Haven't seen the friends in St Louis for around 20 years, so it's a "catch up" trip.

nipping in...go for it Tony, the opportunity presents itself, grasp it!

Meant to thank you for your input on the question I put to you on the
liberals being held responsible, so thanks for that. Can hardly believe
the latest idea, and this is from the liberal party I understand, that
they propose councils across the country check on individuals who are obese, and on benefits, if they find they are not exercising to get fit, cut the benefits. Whatever next? Shrieks of dictatorship to me.
