    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. A new home for the Galina list has been set up. Later today, I'll send out personal invitations to the subscribers of this list. It should be a link you can click that will let you 'accept' the invitation to join the new group. You may need to check your spam folder as I can't say when such will be delivered. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1. Tim Stowell list admin

    2. Timothy Stowell
    3. Greetings of the season. For one reason or another people seem to be a bit nicer this time of year. As in years past, I offer for your view a set of Christmas cards saved by my grandmother from around 100 years ago: http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ga/state1/cards/chrstmas.htm We're off to show our daughter real snow, on this her first Christmas. Temperatures in MN are a lot colder than here. We should be there by Sunday where the high is forecast to be 1 with a low of -16 (16 degrees below zero)! Christmas Eve - high -> 5, low -> -15 warming up on Christmas day to 17. Stay warm! May you and yours have a wonderful holiday season. Tim Stowell

    1. [GALINA] for all seasons
    2. Tim Stowell
    3. Another year is drawing to a close. We've seen some good times and some bad times, happiness and sadness. Sometimes these are mixed leaving us wondering. Some may have lost loved ones or are near such an event. Some may have new ones coming into their lives. I suppose for most it has been a mixed bag year. We wonder what the new year will bring in it's bag - hope, joy, sorrow and a whole host of emotions no doubt. This note is to wish each of you a good closing of the books for 2007, a better opening in 2008. As of this evening this list has 19 members. Years ago my grandmother saved several postcards sent to her in the early years of the 20th century. Some of these are presented for your enjoyment classified as Christmas and New Year's Day cards. http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ga/state1/cards/chrstmas.htm http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ga/state1/cards/newyears.htm Tim Stowell Chattanooga, TN

    3. JEST 'FORE CHRISTMAS Father calls me William, sister calls me Will, Mother calls me Willie, but the fellers call me Bill! Mighty glad I ain't a girl---ruther be a boy, Without them sashes, curls, an' things that's worn by Fauntleroy! Love to chawnk green apples an' go swimmin' in the lake--- Hate to take the castor-ile they give for bellyache! Most all the time, the whole year round, there ain't no flies on me, But jest 'fore Christmas I'm as good as I kin be! Got a yeller dog named Sport, sick him in the cat; First thing she knows she doesn't know where she is at! Got a clipper sled, an' when us kids goes out to slide, 'Long comes the grocery cart, an' we all hook a ride! But sometimes when the grocery man is worrited an' cross, He reaches at us with his whip, an' larrups up his hoss, An' then I laff and holler, "Oh, ye never teched me!" But jest 'fore Christmas I'm as good as I kin be! Gran'ma says she hopes that when I git to be a man, I'll be a missionarer like her oldest brother, Dan, As was et up by the cannibuls that lives in Ceylon's Isle, Where every prospeck pleases, an' only man is vile! But gran'ma she has never been to see a Wild West show, Nor read the Life of Daniel Boone, or else I guess she'd know That Buff'lo Bill an' cow-boys is good enough for me! Excep' jest 'fore Christmas, when I'm good as I kin be! And then old Sport he hangs around, so solemnly an' still, His eyes they seem a-sayin': "What's the matter, little Bill?" The old cat sneaks down off her perch an' wonders what's become Of them two enemies of hern that used to make things hum! But I am so perlite an' 'tend so earnestly to biz, That mother says to father: "How improved our Willie is!" But father, havin' been a boy hisself, suspicions me When, just 'fore Christmas, I'm as good as I kin be! For Christmas, with its lots an' lots of candies, cakes, and toys, Was made, they say, for proper kids an' not for naughty boys; So wash yer face an' bresh yer hair, an' mind yer p's and q's, An' don't bust out yer pantaloons, and don't wear out yer shoes; Say "Yessum" to the ladies, an' "Yessur" to the men, An' when they's company, don't pass yer plate for pie again; But, thinkin' of the things yer'd like to see upon that tree, Jest 'fore Christmas be as good as yer kin be! - Eugene Field

    1. [GALINA] Resolutions
    2. Tim Stowell
    3. The old year has left us. All of its triumphs and tragedies, hopes and dreams are now a part of our history. In comes the new year, a clean slate, upon which we will write our own story. On this first day, we can resolve to do many things. Many of these will soon be lost in the busy part of our lives. Still here and there some of those seeds of resolution will bear fruit. >From the writer of Ecclesiastes - "To everything there is a season... a time to be born and a time to die..a time to weep and a time to laugh..a time of war and a time of peace. May the new year bring you many triumphs, few tragedies, dreams fulfilled, faith in your fellow man, hope for the future and charity for all. To celebrate the promise of the new year I'm passing along the URL of a site I created in 2005 of vintage New Year's cards from my personal family collection. http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ga/state1/cards/newyears.htm If you missed the vintage Christmas cards, there is a link included to view them. May you have a wonderful New Year. Tim

    1. [GALINA] Tis the season
    2. Tim Stowell
    3. Tis the season to be with family, celebrate or create traditions unique to your family. For those of you who've added members to your family this year by birth, marriage or discovery - congratulations. For those of you who've lost members for whatever reason, my condolences. Some traditions pass as do the generations, while others are continued or created. For my family I remember my father speaking of his childhood in central New York in the 1930s, where on Christmas Eve his father would go out, find, cut down, a tree for Christmas. Brought back home it was decorated with among other things candles, which were lit at some point. For myself, the last few years when we've gone to Minnesota for the holiday, usually after lunch on Christmas day, we've walked down the middle of the local river for a mile or more, seeing the tracks left by the various creatures in the snow on the river and river banks. Sometimes we see pheasant and once I saw a snowy owl. To celebrate the season I'm passing along the URL of a site I created last year, of vintage Christmas cards from my personal family collection. http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ga/state1/cards/chrstmas.htm Merry Christmas to you all, Tim
