I am what's called a TAPHOPHILE or NECROMANIAC in short, a lover of cemeteries. Many people think of cemeteries as morbid, scary, or sad; but for me they are beautiful, serine, meditative places full of wonderful architecture, art, fauna, and rich in History. Take a look at some of my favorite cemetery sites on the internet!


History / Civil War

For those of you who know us this section needs no explanation! Chris has been a Civil War/ history 'buff' for ages, I guess by osmosis, I became one too, It's hard to live with someone this long and not pick up a few of their bad habits! 


Who doesn't LOVE music...Here is a bit of a taste of our eclectic musical interests. There are so many more we couldn't possibly list them all, but we will try to change them up a bit here and there, just to keep thing interesting! For more music links check Kiersten's Page!



Before you ask, no I don't have green skin, nor do I have a wart on my nose....I do however practice the pagan arts, I don't refer to myself as a witch (unless I want to get a rise out of someone & I find it funny) I am an eclectic (neo?) pagan. If your uncomfortable with that....skip this section, if your away!


The Wiccan Rede

Bide the Wiccan Law we must,
In perfect love and perfect trust.
Live and let live,
Fairly take and fairly give.
Cast the circle thrice about,
To keep the evil spirits out.
To bind the spell every time,
Let the spell be spake in rhyme.
Soft of eye and light of touch,
Speak ye little and listen much,
Deosil go by the waxing moon,
Chanting out the Witches' Rune.
Widdershins go by the waning moon,
chanting out the baneful rune.
When the Lady's moon is new,
Kiss the hand to Her, times two.
When the moon rides at her peak,
Then your heart's desire seek.
Heed the Northwind's mighty gale,
Lock the door and drop the sail,
When the wind comes from the South,
Love will kiss thee on the mouth.
When the wind blows from the West,
Departed souls will have no rest.
When the wind blows from the East,
Expect the new and set the feast.





As most of you know my oldest son Liam was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes January 6 2001, just one week before his 4th birthday. It has been a struggle dealing with this disease, but it has also been highly educational!

Liam is now on an (Animas) insulin pump. We are very excited!

Most women become mothers by accident, some by choice, a few by social

pressures and a couple by habit. Did you ever wonder how mothers of

children with diabetes are chosen? Somehow I visualize God hovering

over earth selecting his instruments for propagation with great care

and deliberation. As he observes, he instructs his angels to make

notes in a giant ledger.

"Armstrong, Beth, son. Patron Saint Matthew."


"Forrest, Marjorie, daughter, Patron Saint Cecilia."


"Rutledge, Carrie, twins. Patron Saint Gerard. He's used to profanity."


Finally, He passes a name to an angel and smiles, "Give her a child

with diabetes." The angel is curious. "Why this one, God? She's so



"Exactly", smiles God. "Could I give child with diabetes to a mother

who does not know laughter? That would be cruel".


"But has she the patience?" asks the angel.


"I don't want her to have too much patience, or she will drown in a

sea of self-pity and despair. Once the shock and resentment wear off,

she'll handle it. I watched her today. She has that feeling of self

and independence that is so rare and so necessary in a mother. You

see, the child I am going to give her has her own world. She has to

make it live in her world and that's not going to be easy."


"But, Lord, I don't think she even believes in you."


God smiles. "No matter. I can fix that. This one is perfect. She has

just enough selfishness."


The angel gasps. "Selfishness? Is that a virtue?"


God nods. "If she cannot separate herself from the child occasionally,

she will never survive. Yes, here is a woman whom I will bless with

less than perfect."


"She does not realize it yet, but she is to be envied. I will permit

her to see clearly the things I see .... ignorance, cruelty, prejudice

. and allow her to rise above them. She will never be alone. I will

be at her side every minute of every day of her life because she is

doing my work as surely as if she is here by my side."


"And what about her patron saint?" asks the angel, his pen poised in

mid air. God smiles. "A mirror will suffice."


Here are a few of my favorite web sites concerning diabetes.



Urban Legends

We all love a good juicy story that keeps us on the edge of our seats, but at the same time, we don't want to be taken in by a seemingly true story that tugs at our heartstrings. We have all gotten emails that ask that we send them to everyone in our address book and promise money, or warn of nasty computer viruses. Before you hit that forward button, check out these websites, And so you know, Bill Gates, nor Disney, nor anyone else is going to send you a check for forwarding an email to all your friends!!!!
