I'm taking the writing course in September, and one of the first things we're asked to do is talk about our writing experience.

Apparently, I hadn't yet learned the difference between "that" and "which." Oh, and I took the photo, too. …Continue

Nestled on a wooded knoll surrounded by periwinkle lies the remains of a 300-year-old structure that once was the Cedar Creek Meeting House. Established in 1721 from land donated by Thomas Stanley, the site lies west of an old 18th-century roadbed in Hanover County, Virginia. The church site is now on an old, abandoned road just off Cedar Creek Road. The cemetery, filled with field stones, holds the remains of early congregation members. This article will recognize the early members by…Continue

John migrated to Australia, before 1848, when he married a widow, Margaret Drane, ( nee Mc Phee),( born in…Continue
