Heart Bonds

November 19, 2007

Sit back and enjoy your visit with a nice cup of tea!

I have touched on subjects that are dear to my heart!

ENGLAND (Devon, Cornwall) is featured because
my husband's dad's family is descended from John, the youngest son of Richard,
the first MANICOM who used OUR spelling of the name.
There are many surname variations, some dating back to the 1200s!!

I've also got a few photographs of some beautiful, meaningful spots!

ONTARIO is featured because the areas of
~ Sarnia, Adelaide Township, Camlachie ~
are where my husband's dad's grandparents settled
when they arrived from Cornwall England and Scotland.

~ McNab Township, Renfrew and Horton Township ~
are where my dad's ancestors settled when they arrived from Lanark & Perthshire Scotland.

I've always been very interested in the great story of Nicholas & Alexandra,
as well as the story of Grand Duchess Anastasia ~ ~ ~
so I've featured some of my favourite ROMANOV photos.

MARY O'HARA: Musical Voice of Ireland ~ Celtic harpist/singer/writer.

The Queen Charlotte Islands, off the coast of BC,
hold a special place in my personal memories, as I lived there from the age of 4 to 8.

PORT ROYAL ~~ The original Acadian settlement in Nova Scotia.
Most of Ed's mom's ancestors are the original Acadian settlers from France!

GALLERY of FINE ART ~ Ed's Original Watercolour Paintings!

I was diagnosed in September 1996 with
, a very unusual heart disease!
JON'S PLACE -- the BEST site on the Net for info on Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)

On May 27, 1988, our daughter, Sharon Lydia Grace, was stillborn ~
I have a memorial section for her.

I have slowly put 'COUNTRY ACCENTS' all over my home.
Everything from cuddly teddies to frivolous hearts to hand-made country dolls!
All sorts of nostalgic touches!
I find they lend a home a warm, cozy and welcoming atmosphere, which I love!

I could NEVER have created this WebPage without LOTS of HELP
from talented 'artists' on the Web!

Moyra's Web Jewels provided the lovely background set you see here!
