Jacquie Lawson e-cards The greeting above is from Jacquie Lawson. Click on the picture to view the greeting. Wishing you a wonderful very day.



Oh where do I begin.. well really Love story is NOT one of my favorite movies. However, "Gone With the Wind" is along with, Somewhere In Time. Others I like Most Mystery movies I like many from the 1940's are fun too.. not a mystery but a great movie "The Bishops Wife" with Loretta Young, Carry Grant etc. "Mr. Blanding's Builds His Dream House" Cary Grant and Myrna Loy.. all the Thin Man Movies with Myrna Loy and William Powell, For Richer for Poorer with Tim Allen and Kristy Alley. Kate and Leopold Meg Ryan, Huge Jackman; Frequency with Jim Caviezel, The Count of Monte Cristo Jim Caviezel, Angle Eyes Jim Caviezel and of course The Passion of the Christ Jim Caviezel however that movie is not one I can watch over and over it hurts to much but a must see movie. You've Got Mail, Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks but also the original Shop Around the Corner with Margaret Sullivan and Jimmy Stewart. It's a Wonderful Life Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed



Music I like: Soft rock, Glenn Miller, 40's music Easy Listening, Frank Sinatra, Some popular and Rock, and Hymns and Christmas music especially the Christmas Hymns. Love songs and The Christmas Songs on this player bring back memories of my Childhood and Chirstmas mornings when we would wake up to a Wonderland of Of music softly playing in the background Candle light and soft glow of the red light in the Christmas Wreath that hung on the windows and the wonderful Christmas tree all aglow even with bubble lights and wonderful decorations. the mica snow that covered all the gifts and all those gifts each one of us had our own side of the tree. What fun I hope you enjoy this player as well. Connie

The Library
Looking for history, looking for fiction,
Looking for poetry or even a Mystery,
Whatever the case the library
whether at home or some other place,
Is a special space for reading,
Learning, imagination and minds to grow,
And then our lives can overflow
into amazing wisdom and marvelous imagination
Oh what a magnificent place that is.. you know. by Connie Hull 9-18,19-2012

Purple, to light Violet/Lavender. On one of my Mom's hospital stays, I found some lavender roses they were so pretty! It was my favorite color so Dad got them for her. The nurses in the hospital made quite deal over them. To this day have not seen a prettier lavender roses.

Remembering those who have died for our country this Memorial Day.....
Memorial Day History
Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30. It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.
The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
The ceremonies centered around the mourning-draped veranda of the Arlington mansion, once the home of Gen. Robert E. Lee. Various Washington officials, including Gen. and Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant, presided over the ceremonies. After speeches, children from the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Orphan Home and members of the GAR made their way through the cemetery, strewing flowers on both Union and Confederate graves, reciting prayers and singing hymns....
Approximately 25 places have been named in connection with the origin of Memorial Day, many of them in the South where most of the war dead were buried. The earliest claim is in 1864 at The village of Boalsburg, Pa.
Official Birthplace Declared In 1966, Congress and President Lyndon Johnson declared Waterloo, N.Y., the “birthplace” of Memorial Day. There, a ceremony on May 5, 1866, honored local veterans who had fought in the Civil War. Businesses closed and residents flew flags at half-staff. Supporters of Waterloo’s claim say earlier observances in other places were either informal, not community-wide or one-time events.
By the end of the 19th century, Memorial Day ceremonies were being held on May 30 throughout the nation. State legislatures passed proclamations designating the day, and the Army and Navy adopted regulations for proper observance at their facilities.
It was not until after World War I, however, that the day was expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars. In 1971, Memorial Day was declared a national holiday by an act of Congress, though it is still often called Decoration Day. It was then also placed on the last Monday in May.
In December 2000, it was past into law “The National Moment of Remembrance Act,” The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation. As Moment of Remembrance founder Carmella LaSpada states: “It’s a way we can all help put the memorial back in Memorial Day.”
1.1 million Americans have died in the nation’s wars: “Not only are they commemorated by columns and inscriptions, but there dwells also an unwritten memorial of them, graven not on stone but in the hearts of men.” this quote was made 24 centuries ago by The Athenian leader, Pericles, applies well today for our men and women too as we observe Memorial Day....

The Star Spangled Banner. The Little boy salutes all those through all the wars that have been fought for our freedoms remembering Memorial Day. The story of the Star Spangled Banner written by Frances Scott Key is thus: During the War of 1812, Key, accompanied by the British Prisoner Exchange Agent Colonel John Stuart Skinner, dined aboard the British ship HMS Tonnant, as the guests of three British officers: Vice Admiral Alexander Cochrane, Rear Admiral George Cockburn, and Major General Robert Ross. Skinner and Key were there to negotiate the release of prisoners, one of whom was Dr. William Beanes, a resident of Upper Marlboro, Maryland who had been arrested after putting rowdy stragglers under citizen's arrest. Skinner, Key, and Beanes were not allowed to return to their own sloop because they had become familiar with the strength and position of the British units and with the British intent to attack Baltimore. As a result of this, Key was unable to do anything but watch the bombarding of the American forces at Fort McHenry during the Battle of Baltimore on the night of September 13–14, 1814.....
At dawn, Key was able to see an American flag still waving and reported this to the prisoners below deck. On the way back to Baltimore, he was inspired to write a poem describing his experience, "Defence of Fort M'Henry", which he published in the Patriot on September 20, 1814. He intended to fit it to the rhythms of composer John Stafford Smith's "To Anacreon in Heaven", a popular tune Key had already used as a setting for his 1805 song "When the Warrior Returns," celebrating U.S. heroes of the First Barbary War. (Key used the "star spangled" flag imagery in the earlier song.) It has become better known as "The Star-Spangled Banner". Under this name, the song was adopted as the American national anthem, first by an Executive Order from President Woodrow Wilson in 1916 (which had little effect beyond requiring military bands to play it) and then by a Congressional resolution in 1931, signed by President Herbert Hoover.....
The Star Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key...
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?.....

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!......

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!......

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

When I was a young girl my Grandma Hull, had a print of this Angel and little boy and girl going over a very scary bridge. We would talk about that print and how scary it was, and where were the parents, and why the children were out there. But Grandma said it shows it doesn't matter what trouble you are in God is there with His protective angels to watch over you. And I found and still find great comfort in that, and know it is true.

Won't you join me for Tea Time we could have tea or whatever beverage you like and sit around and enjoy the day together. Wishing all my friends a beautiful Day filled with joy and wonders to behold.

I am a Mom and Grandma, My oldest grandchild is 13 July 31,2016. My how time flies. He is also the one I have as an incase of emergency along with my brother.
My college major was Art. As a matter of fact I make most of my own art for my page here on NOTH only the one above with Bible and candles in News and Announcements. If you wonder why I have the coca cola ladies on my page and never take them off it is because I have "Googled" the ladies for History of them and my page comes up. I am very honored about that but I feel they need them to remain for those interested in Coca-Cola History which there is quite a bit of history about them.
I also founded, publish, write, do the art direction, report etc. a home town type publication originally for people to encourage them to know they are worth something too. It is now world wide, most who get it share it with others so not sure how many receive it. Thus, for a town of about 90 people to have more than 500 subscribers via email (that I know about) isn't to bad. It is also on facebook It is a free Maybe because it is free helps :) It has some news in it, recipes, sometimes religious or inspirational stories, poems each week it is different but always has recipes, either a fun fact or humor and a contest. It is Pro Family, Pro Country, Very Pro God publication.Here is a link to the the Woodston Free Press web site Just click on the WOODSTONFREEPRESS




Jesus, people especially those that enjoy the fact that they are alive and like living, Reading the Bible and reading in general, Art, publishing, shopping even if I don't buy anything. I love computers have sold them and designed them (as in what hardware works best with what motherboard etc.) And I also helped people choose the correct software for their needs. I still help people with their computers, software and printers. Talking to people, I Love people, all people, but especially enjoy those that think deeply,and have a sense of humor too.



About the painting above: When I was a little girl my Grandparent’s had this painting hanging in their home. My "Grandpa" Hull, was a wonderful man and minister. This painting also hung above his pulpit in the country church where he preached. Well I could write a book about this wonderful man. However, I remember one day he and I were talking, I told him how much I loved that painting. He said you know that the book of Revelation chapter 3 verse 20 inspired this painting where Jesus says: "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." Grandpa explained that "man" meant anyone at all that would ask Him in, Grandpa also said, "Look at the door, there is no door handle. Jesus cannot come in unless we do the inviting. Jesus never goes where He is not wanted, but He will go everywhere He is and He continues to knock at everyone's hearts door. Honey do you want to invite Jesus into your heart?"… I did. As you can imagine this painting is and its symbolism are very special to me.

A prayer:For the homeless, Lord hear our prayer, for the lonely Lord hear our prayer, For the hurting, Lord hear our prayer, For the sick and infirm, Lord hear our prayer, For the children Lord Hear our Prayer, For victims of all kinds of things, Lord hear our prayer, for those who have suffered loss of loved ones in so many ways, Lord hear our prayer.. When at our darkest and bleakest hour Lord hear our prayer and send your angels to watch over us to guide us, show us your love, protect us, and keep us in all your ways. Light a candle for all those in their darkest hour. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, In Jesus Holy name,. Amen


May the Lord bless and keep you, May His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you. May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace." Numbers 6: 24-26

Several mentioned in What I like and making Blingee's


This is the First Coca Cola Dispenser from 1886 that dispensed coca cola syrup that was mixed with carbonated water. The big glass in front that says Drink Coca Cola..and the one the lady is holding looks very much like the first coca cola glasses and the carton to the right that holds bottles of Coca Cola was the first carton Coca Cola sold them in. It was Coca Cola that invented the idea to put Coca Cola in bottles and then in cartons so people would have something to take their favorite beverage home in which was much more convenient than taking it home in individual bottles. Coca Cola started it and rest of the bottling and packaging industry soon picked up on Coca Cola's idea and thus packaged bottled beverages was born and lives strong today.



Hilda Kathryn Clark first model on tins Hilda Clark picture circa 1895Hilda Clark was an actress in the late 1800's but became very famous when Coca Cola hired her in 1889 to be the "face" of Coca Cola. She was the first to appear on their serving trays (first tray was in 1895)and then was used on all advertising including calendars. Hilda remained the "face" of Coca Cola until her Marriage in New York State during the month of Feb. 1903 to Fredrick Stanton Flower a Millionaire making his fortune through banking concerns and the director of several railroads. When she married Mr. Flower she took the name Hilda Clark Flower. Fredrick was the nephew of a governor of NY Roswell P. Flower. Hilda and her husband had a very good marriage. She was born in 1872 to Lydia and Milton Edward Clark in Leavenworth, KS. Her beloved husband Fredrick died in December 1930. Hilda Clark died just one year and five months later on May 5, 1932, in Miami Beach, Florida. She was buried next to her husband at Brookside Cemetery, in Watertown, New York.


Above Coca Cola Model Hilda Clark 1903.This is likely the last Coca Cola advertising image of Hilda Clark. This was used in 1903 just before she married Fredrick Flower.
The Coca Cola dispenser was the first dispenser they used to serve the beverage. The glass to the left is one of the first styles of Coca Cola glasses before they got their famous shape in 1915.


Lillian Norton Nordica 1904 ad for Coca Cola

Born in Farmington Maine in 1857 Lillian Nordica was the second of the famed Coca Cola serving tray ladies.. After Hilda Coca Cola hired Lillian Nordica, She worked for them from 1904-1905. The above picture of her was their first advertising picture of her for the year 1904
Here is a little more about this famous beauty: Following some private lessons, and she made her debut in La Traviata at Brescia, Italy, April, 1879. Where her name was changed from Lillian Norton to Nordica, Miss Nordica's association with the Metropolitan Opera House, New York, during the latter half of the 90's, lent luster to that galaxy of artist, not since duplicated in any opera house. An honor of that time was her participation in the opening of the Boston Opera House, where she sang in LA Gioconda. Critics agree that Miss. Nordica possessed a voice of liquid purity, exceptional range and magnificent power. These, combined with a charming personality, rare dramatic gift and an obsession for patient study, enabled her to win success in a most exacting profession. Her fame penetrated to every civilized corner of the earth, and her name was synonymous with everything fine in vocal art.
(December 12, 1857 – May 10, 1914)
By 1913, her voice and health were in decline. This did not prevent her from embarking misguidedly on a strenuous recital tour to Australia. She nearly missed the ship leaving Sydney on her return, but wired the captain asking him to wait for her. It would prove to be a fatal mistake. The ship was The Tasman, hit a coral reef, where it remained for three days, and Lilian suffered hypothermia (exposure) from which she never fully recovered. She lingered for months, seeming to improve, only to fail again. She died on May 10, 1914, in Batavia (now Jakarta) on the island of Java. Pneumonia carried her off in the end.

Lilian's personal life was not as successful as her public. She was married three times and divorced the same when she died she was not married.

Her birthplace in Farmington, Maine, is today the Nordica Memorial Homestead, a museum and historic site. The Nordica Auditorium in Merrill Hall at the University of Maine at Farmington is named after her.
Folklore: At the University of Maine at Farmington, it is said that the Ghost of Lilian roams the auditorium that was given to the university in her name. Some evenings one is able to still hear her sing in the stage area.
