to helping you!
​Knowledge is amazing and gaining new knowledge is, for me, exhilarating.  I have always felt that we should share our knowledge with others and be willing to learn from them also.  

I have experience in many fields and hope to gain more experience as I go on in life.  In our current economic environment, I feel it is incumbent on each of us to do whatever we can to support ourselves and to help our friends and neighbors support themselves. 

 On this site you will see names and telephone numbers listed of friends and neighbors who have skills they wish to share. In return they ask only a fair wage. You will negotiate directly with those who will be performing the tasks you need done. This site is merely a place for them to let you know they are there and willing to work.

You may contact me by calling any of the telephone numbers listed on this website or emailing me at dotprince2001@yahoo.com.

I said above that I love learning and I do. I have a new ability I wanted to share with you. I do genealogy as a hobby and have taken some classes online and now am a Family History Consultant for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The church has a new genealogy website called Family Search. The URL is:
www.FamilySearch.org  and is free. It is the ideal site for putting your own family tree together and having it make sense. My family is, like most families, pretty convoluted. I gave up worrying about the "skeletons in the closet" long ago. It's all history and all worth knowing. I have some characters in my family tree, and I have some very prim and proper ones also. You probably do, too. Give it a look and see what you think.
​Spring is nearly here and the time for planting and generally playing in the dirt is fast approaching. I hope to be able to plant several container 
gardens all over my yard -- front, side and back included. Last year I added a forsythia bush to the front yard which appears to be thriving and is beginning to show blooms already for this year.  The lilac bush I planted three years ago is thriving and is at least four times the size it was when I planted it. I lost a beautiful rose bush last year. It was an heirloom rose called an Angel Face, lavender in color and had a fragrance that was reminiscent of the old-fashioned roses from long ago. I will miss that beautiful rosebush. However, my climbing blaze rose is thriving and bigger than I've ever seen it. I trimmed it last year, but you'd never know it now. 

I plan to plant an herb garden in a raised bed this year. I had intended to do so last year, but it never materialized. This year I have the planter and I have the energy. All I need now is to get the all-weather sealant on the planter and set it up where I want it, put the dirt in it and plant the seeds and let nature take her course. 

My husband and I have a hobby that we have done for years. When we go for long drives in the country, we watch for big or unusual birds of all types. We have seen many beautiful creatures and have started keeping a log of these sightings. I'll be sharing some of our more unusual sightings as time goes on.

This winter on one of our drives we were blessed to see an otter playing all alone out in the water at a nearby lake where we had stopped to eat our lunch. Such a beautiful creature and so much fun to watch! He eventually came ashore and we were able to see him up close. He was only about 15 feet from us, sitting on a log that had fallen into the water, eating a fish he had just caught. 

We have seen eagles, owls, whooping cranes, wild swans, kingfishers, wild ducks by the hundreds, Canadian geese, and many other birds that are not usually prevalent in our area. I hope to be able to post pictures along with future posts about these beautiful creatures. I love nature and I enjoy being out in the woods and on the back roads of our area.
