- Figuring out I'm not figuring it out

I realized that my crochet swatch, was done wrong yesterday. But today, I got it....for sure this time. My co-worker showed me what I was doing wrong, and Craftdaisy was a big help too.

Here are updated pictures of my most recent swatch.

I think they look A LOT better, and they are easier than what I was doing. So I'm on my way to being a master crocheter....well, actually on my way to beginner status. Next step, learning to read patterns.

On the family note, my mom made a big find yesterday! In genealogy, finding women is often times hard, due to marriage and name changes. But mom found a daughter of William Henry Tackitt, and her daughter. William Henry's daughter was named Julia. She married Clarence Gorman who was born in Kentucky and in 1920 had a daughter, Dorothy who was 10 years old.

It appears that Julia died prior to 1930, and might have had at least one other child. This is very exciting. There might be other descendants of William Henry Tackitt out there in the world somewhere. As it stands now, my mom and I are the only ones we know of.

I'm finding myself more and more interested in our genealogy. The stories are fascinating. For example, Luvina Harris, my great-great grandmother is listed in the 1870 census with her parents. Her mother's occupation is listed a "Keeping tent" as opposed to keeping house. Funny hunh?!? I sure think so.

You must have seen Ranbir Kapoor’s wonderful chemistry with Katrina Kaif in Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani.

Katrina is really exited to romance Ranbir, obviously in reel life. Katrina is really eager to be a part of Ashtvinayak’s next film that casts Ranbir.

However she is well known to this fact that her looks as well as accent can not relate
