Thanks to a BRILLIANT suggestion from Tau, I now have a new website blog

The Prodigal Pagan

or, for you LJ fans, you can subscribe to the feed here and have it show up on your FL:

I didn't get rid of the old site entirely, it's still there. I just won't be updating it, haven't for awhile, as a matter of fact.

And since it is the public religious site, I'll probably be doing most of my religious musings over der. More private religious matters, ones I think are tooooooooooo personal to post on a public blog, I'll keep over here. Yeah. I'm wary that way.

I am sunburnt from yesterday, and I have a whole new crop of freckles :( I got cramps, I still have the cruds, but at least one problem's been taken care of - what-to-do-with-the-website. Thanks Tau!

Now, gotta do something with Michael's website. At least he likes what I've done so far.

Springtime Tallahassee

Actually took a lot of photos of our springtime - azaleas, dogwoods, wisterias, native crabapples. You can see them here on flickr.

Oprah Winfrey once said that her dream was to find the plantation her ancestors lived on, and BUY it. Well I know which plantation my family came from, but I'll never have the money to buy it! Arvah Hopkins, my grandmother's grandfather, owned Goodwood during and after the Civil War. Family secret was, that he was a Yankee, and had to buy it to impress the family of the woman he wanted to marry.

One thing interesting I found out, was that he married the daughter of John Branch, who was the territorial governor of Florida at that time. Our great, great, great grandfather (I think I got that right!) was Governor!

I've never been to Goodwood, but when driving mom to get her radiation we would have to drive right by there. It's right behind the hospital. It's a museum now.

My sister Jeanne was nice enough to take me to "Goodwood Cafe" for lunch, and afterwards we took a tour of the house. It was AWESOME! And they were very excited to have descendants of Arvah Hopkins come visit.

They have little clippets from a book that Arvah's neice wrote, of her visits to Goodwood during it's heyday, placed all over the place.

Anyway, here are the photos I took, eventually one day I'll put it up on a webpage. So if you've never toured a Southern Plantation, now's your chance. If for some reason they don't open, lemme know.
