Well, hello and welcome to my web age, I am a 57 year old Grandmom, of nine beautiful Grandbabies, Danny, turned 11, August 11,2004 and Emily,turned 8,September 24,2004, Laura turned 6 April 25,2004 and Jacob turned 5 January 18, 2004 and Matthew Joseph turned 5 January 15, 2004,...Karly turned 11 In March 2004 and Allie turned 6 also, Liam Jacob turned 1 March 11, 2003 and our newest is due December 3, 2004.. Soon I won't be able to keep track of all of these kids, they are all cuties.....

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&& Also, I have two dogs, Pooh and Mini and three parrots, Sticky and MEL and FROSTY. You know how that goes, Mom get me a pet so I can take care of it, SURE..... My job.....

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&& I LOVE crafting, and home repairs, I can fix almost everything. I even remodeled my bathroom, and also, my kitchen.

I made an island for the kitchen, from three old cabinets, I painted and antiqued them, bolted them together and put an old butcher block top on it, (after I sanded and stained it)


I really love this computer (Webtv), that my Daughter got for me, as I have been disabled since January 1995, with a horrific type of facial cancer that took almost all of the upper roof of my mouth, part of my nose, left cheek, and my top lip, which they partly constructed from my left arm,the Doctors have said that I am now Cancer free and the reconstruction of my face will begin very soon. I am going to Fox Chase Cancer Center now, because, after many disappointing surgeries,(failures) for reconsruction, from another Doctor at a different hospital. But, I feel very hopeful and soon I will feel and look like my old self again. As of May 2002, I am still waiting for any information, I am beginning to think that "They cannot put Humpty Dumpty back together again".Its now October 18, 2004 and I lost my lawsuit before it began the Doctor convinced my lawyers that he did not cause me any harm, even though I had devloped Septis and I guess the only thing that did not happen to me was that I did not die.I had developed a huge swelling on the right side of my face and neck so I went to Fox Chase Cancer hospital and the said my cancer had come back, Great now what, I had chemo and 60 radiation and I did not lose my hair, thats good but the end result now is that there is Nothing more they can do for me. They gave me no time period, I guess whenever my time is up thats when I will not be writing anymore...



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&& I make Diaper Cakes, "Baby Cakes" for Baby Showers

And Wedding Towel Cakes, "Wedoing Cakes", for Bridal Showers, Wedding Anniversaries

I also crochet blankets.&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&& &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

I collect everything now, and I think thats so because like many others "My Mother threw my things out".

I am from Philadelphia, so I Love the Oldies Music, Swing Music,and a local Disc Jockey Jerry Blavat, he got myself and a lot of other "yon teenagers" on the right track, with his words of wisdom and understanding, on the radio and at local dances, like Wagner's ballroom, Chevouz. They do not have them anymore, we used to see Live Acts, Like Little Anthony and the Imperials, The Five Satins,Supremes, and many local Philly groups.

Also, I am researching my Families Genealogy, and because both of my parents served in the Armed Forces, in World War Two.

My brother and myself, are trying to find out everything about their company units, is of much interest, my brother sent away for all of the medals and ribbons for Mom and Dad.

Forgive me if I went on about things, I'll get better at this. Please e-mail, if you can help, or have any helpful words of wisdom. Later.......... &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Yin and Yang is also the symbol for the FIGHTING 29 th Division ( the Blue and Gray)that my Father was in during World War Two.

He was in the first wave on D-Day on Omaha Beach 6-6-1944, and my Mother was a Wac at Fort Storey, Virginia, Mom was also an M.P. I entered her at the WOMENS WAR MEMORIAL (WIMSA) located accross the street from Arlington National Cemetery, very impressive.

Some day I will get down there and see the Memorial. She is now 88 yrs old and is suffering from Alzheimers, what a tragic loss of entire life time past and present, as she was and is a very important factor in my life, as was my very understanding and patient Father,for he was a Quiet Man, but a very supportative Dad.

Since February 2001, my Mother had gotten much worse. My brother called me to tell me that Mom is doing very bad, my Daughter and myself went to see her,this was the Thursday before Palm Sunday. We had the priest in to give her the Last Rites on Friday, and he came back on Saturday, but after a long bout with Alzheimers, Mom left us Palm Sunday Afternoon April 8, 2001 at the age of 88. We are still greiving, but now she and my Dad are at rest together.



I will be gathering some information about Alzheimers and the problems that it causes to the person and the caregivers that take on this task of love and dedication. Since this writing there has been some hopeful researching into the placques that form to kill brain cells, maybe they are stumbling onto a "cure" as I write.


Below is a Poem, that my Son Matthew gave me over ten years ago, and it seems to say how I feel about this life stealing disease.



Blessed are they who understand my faltering steps and shaking hand,

Blessed, who know my ears today must strain to catch the things they say,

Blessed are they who seem to know my eyes are dim and my mind is slow,

Blessed are they who looked away, I spilled my tea on the cloth that day!

Blessed are they who, with a cheery smile, stopped to chat for a little while,

Blessed are they who know the way to bring back memories of yesterday,

Blessed are they who never say, "you have told that story twice today!"

Blessed are they who make it known that I am Loved, respected and not alone,

And Blessed are they who will ease the days, of my journey home, in loving ways.


I dedicate this poem, to my Brother and to the many caregivers and families, that go unthanked, for their undying dedication for many hours of helping their loved ones through this disease. And Please, when the burden of this task makes you feel as though you just cannot cope anymore, "Please seek Help", You need to make time for yourself, because you can become consummed by your Loved One's disease. You are not alone, Just ask. ************************************************************************************************

Here is another Poem, the Author is Unknown

When my life has reached its very end, and I take that final breath; I want to know I've left behind, Some "good" before my death.

I hope that in my final hour, In all honesty I can say; That somewhere in my lifetime, I have brightened someone's day.

That maybe I have brought a smile to someone else's face, And made one moment a little sweeter while they dwelled here in this place.

Lord, please be my reminder and whisper softly in my ear...To be a "Giver", and not a "Taker", in the years I have left here.

Give me the strength I need, open up my mind and my soul, that I might show sincere compassion, and Love to others before I go.

For if not a heart be touched by me, and not a smile was left behind... then the life that I am blessed with, will have been a waste of time.

With all my heart, I truly hope to leave something here on earth...that touched another, made them smile and gave to my Life... Worth.


The Pace Of Life

Mom would say, when out for walk, "Keep up, Paula, keep up", I tried and tried, but my legs were just to short.

Then when we grew older,Our walks were together. We would keep an even pace, finally together.

But, as Mom aged, I was winning the race. You know, I'd would just give anything, if we could walk together again, but with this Alzheimer's Disease, she doesn't even remember who was even in the lead.


I have also been researching, my family genealogy in Donegal,Ireland and Stettin, Germany and Prussia and Poland this venture is becoming very interesting and time really seems to pass quickly when you are searching all of these interesting places. There are few mailing lists that are really informative, regarding genealogy. I like the Philly roots, and the Roots web for ships lists, although, I have not found any revelant informaton on my relatives, that I already know.
