Genealogy Genie Well, this is a new one on me! “A Springfield, Oregon man is selling ad space on his cremation urn to cover some of his medical bills and also his funeral. Aaron Jamison has been diagnosed with colon cancer, and depending on how his treatment goes, has anywhere from 3 to 9 months to live. In an effort to not leave his family stuck with mounting medical bills and to also pay for his cremation, Aaron has come up with a unique advertising scheme. He is selling advertisement space on his urn to local businesses. In addition, Aaron has also setup a web site to accept donations from anyone who would like to contribute. His web site is at http:// judasforg i v e n . blogspot. com.” “Tennessee archivist Wayne Moore is conducting a multi-year Civil War memorabilia tour. Tennessee archivists are trying to beef up the state’s library of Civil War documentation by asking people to dust off their brass buttons, old family photos and handwritten letters that have survived from the 1860s. State historians plan to hit every county in Tennessee as part of an effort to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. You can read more in an article by Blake Farmer at npr/126282187/.” This is being done to celebrate the 150-year anniversary. Digital photos are being taken of the items anyone wishes to bring out and share. I’m not sure when they will hit Haywood County, but if I find

out I’ll have it make sure you know about it. And here’s another rather ironic story! “Charles Darwin’s family suffered from the deleterious effects of inbreeding, suggests a new study that serves as ironic punctuation to the evolutionary theorist’s life work. Pioneer of the theory that genetic traits affect survival of both individual organisms and species, Darwin wondered in his own lifetime if his marriage to first cousin Emma Wedgwood was having “the evil effects of close interbreeding” that he had observed in plants and animals. Three of their children died before age 10, two from infectious diseases. The survivors were often ill, and out of the six long-term marriages that resulted, only half produced any children. According to researchers at Ohio State University and Spain’s Universidad de Santiago de Compestela, that alone is a “suspicious” sign that the Darwins suffered from reproductive problems.

Banana Nut Bread Tasty Enough to Finish in One Sitting “I can’t get enough... I almost ate the whole loaf at one sitting.” Robin DuPree Coldspring, TX (Pop. 5,894)

Robin DuPree

It takes a pretty special banana nut bread to satisfy my appetite. I’ve tried numerous banana nut bread recipes, but this one is the best, by far. Of course, the warm bread’s enticing aroma was irresistible, but it was the ‘melt-in-yourmouth’ texture and easy baking steps that earned it my vote of approval! Each bite is soft and moist, and the bananas and walnuts made for a smooth nutty taste. I can see why Robin almost finished it off in one sitting; It really does taste that good! Bake this bread for your next is sure to be a hit! See step-by-step photos of Robin DuPree’s favorite recipe for Extreme Banana Nut Bread and thousands of recipes from other hometown Americans at:
