RE: Tennessee Resources
From: Teresa Elliott <email@example.com>
The Tennessee State Library and Archives has inventories of most of their
microfilm online at
I find it very useful in seeing what records are
available before I make a trip there. [NOTE: See also Rutherford County
various other county resources.]
RE: American Red Cross
We're contributing gladly! Who knows, later this month or next, or even next
year, it could be us! We would be so grateful for the help! Florida has already
received their aid during our own crises in Florida last year.
My grandmother was a career Red Cross District
Visiting Nurse. I have her Red Cross medal she that she was awarded for her
heroic work at setting up the medical tent and relief at Sakonnet Point, Little
Compton, R.I., a rural district on the Atlantic coast, right after the
horrendous "Hurricane of 1938" ravaged New England. There was only one doctor
and she was the only nurse. She was first to get in her report of casualties,
etc. to Red Cross Headquarters.
We hear you loud and clear. We donated to the Salvation Army. Thanks for
doing such good work.

Thanks for all the links; they look great. Have you tried Google Earth -
http://earth.google.com/ It's free, however needs a fairly new
computer to work. The images are only a few years old and very detailed - can
see my car in the driveway. You can type in a house # and street and it gets you
close to the building. I enjoy your newsletter and have picked up lots of
THINGS UP with familiar quotations
I'm thinking about writing a small book of my mother's quotations. Things like,
"What if your face freezes like that?", "Birds of a feather flock together", "If
you have sex with him he won't marry you", and the one that I have always
obeyed, "Don't ever put clean curtains up on dirty windows."
NOTE from Myrt: I think the phrase my mom used was
"Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?"
