Some scholars suggest nearly a third of those signers were of Scottish descent.
Those with Tartan blood were and are independent and resourceful. They are prolific inventors and writers. They are talented musicians and artist, experienced leaders and scholars. That makes them the 8th largest ethnic group in the United States. Bush on April 4, This day honors all children and encourages us to develop loving, respectful relationships with our children.

GM, maybe I should bake one today and celebrate handmade day! I'm so jealous of your sunshine! We are having lots of rain this weekend. Beginning yesterday afternoon, we were put under a flood watch, which doesn't expire until Monday afternoon. From inches of rain is expected! It had rained here every day last week, and for the foreseeable future, it's supposed to rain daily, but we have had such a good soaking this weekend.
I wasn't prepared for the amount, but luckily our property is safe. We are not in the flood plain. A lot of our town is though, so I hope we don't actually flood. I also hope we don't forget what the sunshine looks like! All the natural wonders of the world are there for all to enjoy. Become aware of all of the beauty in your surroundings. All of these spectacular gifts we have been given are shared by all. All that we have is a blessing, and our lives are a blessing. Some people also look at it as a day to share all that you have.

Enjoy seeing your favorite animals swinging from the trees or splashing in the water and have a fun-filled day. Empanadas are a stuffed bread or pastry that is baked or fried. The name empanada comes from the Galician, Portuguese and Spanish verb em pandar, meaning to wrap or coat in bread. Empanadas are made by folding the dough or bread around a seasoned stuffing.

A cookbook published in in Catalan, the Libre del Coch by Ruperto de Nola, mentions empanadas filled with seafood. They are a half-circle flaky crust filled with seasoned pork, beef or chicken, and cheese. In New Mexico, it is a winter tradition to make sweetmeat empanadas for Christmas.
They are made with ground pork, sugar, pinon nuts, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, sealed in a tortilla-like dough and then deep fried in lard. I love zoos, especially the ones with the huge aquariums. I think I would like to go through one of those water tunnels they have now. Empanadas sound good, maybe a fruit filled one or a meat and cheese one. Flood watch, not good. You stay safe my twin. Where I live we take just the word flood seriously. We almost lost our new home of six months to a flood in Hi both! Oh CorgiMom stay dry and safe! We are getting rain tonight, but I hope it doesn't stay for long!
It's been such a great sunny weekend and that is certainly not always the case! I hope you get some sun soon! Nature is healing! And it's good to be reminded of what we all have as opposed to what we don't have. What a great time of year for All is Ours Day! Lots of things are blooming or just about to, and the cherry trees are really covered in blossoms this year! Love trips to the zoo! The aquarium even holds sleepovers in the tunnel, mostly for kids, but adult chaperones are welcome too! Antiques are often cherished because of their personal and emotional connections.

Nothing seems to clear it up. Now I feel much differently about it! Encourage them to pursue their goals and develop their writing skills.
A journal provides a place for daily writing. From short poems to inspired essays, this is a place young writers can feel free to stretch their wings unjudged. These random bits of inspiration can come from the most unlikely sources but often generate unexpected results. Prompts are available all over the web, as well as in books and apps. The more they read, their experience with writing and writers will expand.
Changing perspective will keep their writing fresh, allowing them an opportunity to find their personal style. They are sometimes our best friends or our worst enemies.

How awful! What a beautiful state! Hubby and I both thought we could move there in an instant Nature may be capricious, but she has certainly blessed Oregon with an abundance of beauty to compensate for the wild swings in weather. I should have thanked you before now, for posting them.
What fun! But I do have a big pile of books in every room of the house! MD, how exciting you got to live in Denmark and bring back such a wonderful piece of antique furniture! Today is filled with all kinds of good themes! Here are some flood pictures from my town and the one next door. The highway is closed there because of flooding.
All of my doctors except one are there, and I have an appointment there tomorrow morning. Hello again, Lila! One of the things I love about it here is the weather Autumn is actually my favorite season, with winter a close second place. We have had trouble with forest fires the last couple of summers, so I know how valuable it is to get good rainfall amounts.
Today we have mph winds. Hi everyone! A mid-way check-in! I've only been to Oregon once, but it was so beautiful! Waterfalls so close to Portland abs beautiful wineries! I also like Fall and winter and spring! But not summer I wilt! Can't wait to go back to my book tonight! I love following bookstagrammers to learn about new books! So sorry, MD. I knew it was Norway, but I already had Denmark on my brain because of something else.
Hello, Ef! We do have beautiful waterfalls and a variety of wineries. I'm so glad you have been able to visit Oregon, too! Thankfully, I'm safe I'm not in the flood area, but traffic is horrible around town because of a major route closed due to flooding on the highway between us and the next town. Because of where our two towns are located, locally, there are only two ways to and from each town, both ways requiring bridges.
There are other ways to get to either town, but that requires going miles out of the way, switching over to different freeways or highways, and then heading back in the directions you want to go. Thankfully, I don't have to go out today! Totally understand your situation. Love it as it rolls along, Hate it when it's too much and nature decides to bless us with big thunderboomers. Not a good thing to be in a city under sea level.

I know how he loves his tummy rubs. And give Gilbert one too. If he will hold still long enough. All that puppy energy it makes it impossible to hold still that long sometimes.

Things to do in Colorado! I got started on those waterfalls and had to force myself to stop. There's at least 80 more falls that I found. Unfortunately most of them the pics could not be copied. But some of them are well worth a look, their amazing. I know would have a hard time picking a favorite waterfall. And definitely a trip to Garden of the Gods and Rattlesnake Canyon. If anyone would like the list of other waterfalls I have it.
We hit 80 degrees today. But are expecting thundstorms tonight. I hope we have no flooding like what my twin had. I really enjoyed all the Colorado information.

This day honors the birth of the third President of The United States, who was born on April 13, Most known as the primary author of the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson was a stalwart of democracy.
While not much an orator, he wrote correspondence, documents, journals and manuscripts. Those who write, tend to read. Jefferson had a vast library of 6, volumes. Jefferson was not only a lawyer but a scientist of agriculture, paleontology, and astronomy. Immensely curious, he kept detailed records of the weather and eventually established weather observers across his home state of Virginia. Four years later the same fault in the document caused a tie within the same party between Aaron Burr and Jefferson with Jefferson assuming the Presidency.

The thunderstorms missed us for the most part and no 80 degrees today either.
We barely hit 70 with gusting winds. We've had the window open beginning of the week, now we may have to have the heat back on. I'm glad you all like the info on Colorado because there was so much more to choose from. And the waterfalls I wish I could have put pics of them all on here because there was so many more amazing ones.

Of course, records can be set for the oldest or the youngest to reach a particular location, age, height or status. While this day may not be about setting records, it is certainly about reaching high; higher than we think we can. We often become complacent.

Male dolphins are called bulls, females are called cow's, the young dolphins are calves and a group of dolphins are called a school or pod.
