Things That I See All Around Me
When going through our friend's house in Tennessee, there were so many things to look at in their house. For me personally, it was exciting finding two tins from tea bags, one is from Lipton Tea and the other Tetley Tea. For quite some time tea has interested me. It is tasty whether cold or hot. I, at one point, went on a search for a tea book that might give more information on what benefits were to be had with different kinds of teas. I did the smart thing, I borrowed a stack of books from the library! Some books went on about how you need to leave an offerring to mother nature or whomever they decided let these plants grow where they were, these books had little to no appeal! Then one book that caught my eye was a paperback book, 20,000 Secrets of Tea by Victoria Zak. She told of different folklore surrounding different teas. The following is taken from the first chapter of the above mentioned book: "To illustrate the importance of tea, a tale tells of an ancient Chinese herbalist who knew 100,000 healing properties of herbs, and began to pass on his wisdom to his son. The herbalist taught his son 80,000 secrets, but fell ill before he could complete the lessons. On his deathbed, the herbalist told his son to come to his grave five years from the date of his death, and there he would find the other 20,000 secrets. On the fifth year, the obedient son went to his father's grave, and found, growing on the site, the black tea shrub." After reading this book I knew that this was the one for me. I have purchased a few copies and have given them to friends and family. That is why seeing these tins made me smile!
So, over a year ago friends were talking with my husband Rolf and I about different ideas for web sites. This process took quite some time. We finally liked a site that would make history fun and bring in nostalgic items for people to share from their lives and experiences. This sounded good then and it sounds even better today. So many days and nights, thinking and wanting this to actually be seen by many people. Then the site was put online and could be viewed by anyone.
Once online, feedback came, quickly. This is a great thing. There was an idea put out there that the site is in need of pictures. We have been through all my husband's photos. Not completely sure we have anything that completely fits the need. Then we go to Tennessee to see friends who have moved there in the last couple of years. These friends have wanted us to see their new place, but until now the opportunity never did come along. We walked into their home at 4:30 A.M. on a Monday morning. Upon entry we look around and see the site. The house has so many nostalgic items, they sell things at an antique shop, things that do not sell come back to the house. These items show up everywhere in the house. It is so beautiful. After taking hundreds of photos, looking at some national parks and seeing the beauty that Tennesse has to offer, we come back to our home state of Delaware. We have been enriched by this trip. You will see many of the photos on the site and in this blog in particular. Looking forward to showing everyone what we saw down there in Tennessee. Will start the blog with a photo from the front door of our this beautiful home that we stayed in that beautiful state.

That spring morning in 1927 could not have been more beautiful, one of the students would later recall. The Bath Consolidated School just outside East Lansing, Mich., was holding final exams, but before the morning bell rang on May 18, 1927, children ran and played outside. Peals of laughter could be heard.
ATLANTA (AP) - More than 70 years ago, a U.S. Army plane dubbed "Hot as Hell" was headed for India on a supply mission. It never arrived, and no one went looking for the doomed aircraft or the eight men on board because military officials had no way of pinpointing where it went down.
