  1. Thank you so very much! I sent you an email! :) Happy 501st post!

  2. That's awesome! Some of my ancestors came to this country on the Queen Mary. What a fun find.

    Congrats to Mary too!

  3. I'm really enjoying your work here. I started with your entry from 25 October 10. I have one quick correction for you. "Stationary" is when something is still; "stationery" is writing paper. {I am compelled to be annoying about it whenever I notice it.} Thanks again.
