Weekend Assignment #57: Beyond Our Borders

Weekend Assigment #57: Share some of your favorite Journals, Blogs and Web sites not on AOL Journals.

It'll have to be a web site, because the blogs I'm really hooked on are right here in J-land.  I'll sometimes peek at a few outside AOL, just because they're "a friend of a friend". 

I have some message boards I lurk on, and sometimes post.  The site I'm going to mention, though, is the one to which I go with livestock questions.  Especially the equine message board.  There are knowledgeable people to answer my questions.  If you live in the city, I doubt this one will interest you.  It's Homesteading Today.  I had a chance to buy a Jersey cow on their barter board once, she just wasn't quite the right age, and wasn't bred to a Jersey.

Extra credit: Find a link you think your mother might like. What is it?

I have two.  This cracks me up, in a way... but I believe these are the ones she'd be most likely to be interested in; I found them with the help of Google.  The first is Churches of Christ on the web.  As far as Mother was concerned, this was THE Church.  Everything else was just "denominations". 

The second is this:  The Worldwide Quilting Page.  After retirement, my mother turned out quilts like a factory!  Every family member has several of her quilts.  My ex-daughter-in-law recently found one in storage that was given to her and my son when they were married, and figured he might want it.  I'm sure he will.

I had to stop over at the Church of Christ page... and yep, my Gram's church was listed <g>... It's the church they have gone to for like forever... and the first church I ever went to... I have lots of memories of Summer Sundays spent first at services, and after playing outside in the HUGE grassy lawn with all the kids while the adults talked/picnic/hung out...

Even a non-sentimental slob like me can appreciate a handmade quilt from grandparents.  Unfortunately, my evil sisters grabbed all of them.  I guess they're entitled since they actually remember Grandma Ediger.  She died long before I showed up.  Still...I remember once being tucked away for a nap under one of those wonderful works of art.

Funny. I picked the same quilting website for my Mom. Let me guess. First result when you typed in 'quilting' on google? That's how I found it.
