So, I went back even further down the line that produced my Spanish ancestors.   That one is allowing me to go back the farthest so far.   I’ve run into dead ends on a lot of the others — Ancestry.com wants me to pay for an upgrade on many of them (I have the basic package).   Anyway, my Spanish ancestors originated as Germanic tribes before the time Christ was born, but I’m not sure which tribe.  These people appear to have migrated to Spain around 400 or 500.   The records go back even earlier, but no dates are given BC and women are no longer listed.   I decided to stop there.

Out of curiosity, I decided to look up the history of German migrations.  It turns out my findings in my family tree about a migration to Spain taking place among certain Germanic tribes during the…

The guys guide to female communication: what she says vs. what she means

This is Life Experiment Blog!

(comments disabled, please visit original page)

In today’s age of gadget driven communication, it’s more important than ever to pay attention to social and physical cues to decipher the message. There are countless books out there which tackle this message, but sometimes its so blatantly obvious that one must chuckle at the inability to take a hint. *Guys, ladies hint… A LOT!

As my significant other has sucked me into the world of youtube, I have witnessed some absolutely cringe-worthy tutorials on what women want. (Usually by young men who have not had the life experience required to even take a guess)

So, I figured we’d have some fun and I would write my own little list of  what she says (does) vs. what she means. I hope you either have a good giggle, or maybe get that codex in your head once and for all 😉

*When you ask what she wants for dinner, what…

A Beautiful Disaster

March 15th has a sting to it. The kind like cold winter air hitting your warm face. A sting like a knife slowly pressed into your soul, never to be removed again. March 15th carries the weight of the world’s saddest souls, and only casts shadows among the living on this day. March 15th is cursed in a way, that only those in our inner circle can understand.

March 15th is when we lost our best friend : a father, husband, son……tragically taken too 12828549_10153926528567457_1014387025005233938_osoon in a mechanical accident at a meat processing plant. March 15th is a day nobody will ever forget, as it was this wretched day that stole our friend, and changed the course of all of our lives forever.

Yes, for the last five years, March 15th rolls around and tears open a healing wound, only to set the process over again. It is such a…

When you are on a great horse, you have the best seat you will ever have. Sir Winston Churchill

This week’s Word Press Photo Challenge is the word “Atop”.  Perfect. I have just received, from professional photographer Susan J. Stickle ,four photos of me atop my horse Biasini at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival last weekend. Here they are. All these photos were taken while I was riding the Prix St.George test.

I have been off track lately feeling just overwhelmed with life in general unfortunately  my blog has been on the lower list of my priorities  I hate to admit it,  but honestly it’s true. I am certain all my friends out there can relate, those days were you just want to throw in the towel….

I am in some need of some organizational skills for my blogging. I would greatly appreciate the help or advice on how others stay on track. it seems like I was going along  just fine and then life happen and it just seems like my concentration and  motivation just went to the waste side.

I have a calendar especially for blogging but it doesn’t  quite work if I put things in it. So I ask if any of you use a calendar and if so how do you use it?

Thank in advance my friends!!…
