~Jnor's Wonderful World Of Carousels~

I have four pages of five very special
carousels from different parts the United States..
{ The first one is from my hometown in NY }
Be sure to look for the pictures that are clickable for more carousel music..

~A Gift Of Poetry~

A gift of poetry.. Is a gift of love..

As a romantic.. I of course love poetry..
I have three pages of some of my favorites..
Share these with the one you love, and read them to one another..
I promise, you'll only fall deeper in love..

"Words are like music played on the heartstrings of life"

~Phenomenal Women~

This page reflects on the lives of just three of my favorite ones..
Maya Angelou, Eleanor Roosevelt and Lillian Gilbreth..
It was very difficult to choose only three..
There are so many phenomenal women, past and present..
But Then..All Women Are Phenomenal..Aren't We!!


I believe that somewhere in the world
is someone that is meant for you alone..

When these two hearts find one another
their hearts become so close,
they sometimes seem to beat as one..

They have found their soulmate..

Here you will find a poem of newly found
soulmates, and the lyrics of four love
songs I feel reflect the feelings of the
love of a soulmate..

~For The One I Love~

May 1999

This is a page I made for my niece and her husband..
They are celebrating their first anniversary..
I wanted to share this with everyone in love..
Because I believe this reflects what is in
the hearts of all lovers..
Young or old.. Love is ageless..

~God's Most Precious Gift..Babies~

June 1999

Babies are indeed God's most precious gift..
A gift of life.. A miracle from God..

A gift of Love like no other..that God has
blessed..for a man and woman to give to one another..
A helpless, sweet bundle of joy, all of
your own to love for a lifetime..

To see the world through the eyes of a child
as they are growing up is a wonderous,
joyful experience..

If you have been blessed with this wonderous
gift of love..cherish this gift like no
other..for there is no other to compare..

~My Native American Heritage~
May 2000

Even though I have a mixture of cultures in my
heritage, mostly German, some Irish and English.
I am very proud of my Cherokee heritage
and would like to share some interesting
facts and stories I have discovered in my
research for this section of my homepage.

I have added a few links at the bottom of the
5th page I think you may find interesting.

I hope you will enjoy this section..

~The World Of Dolphins~

August 1999

The television show "Flipper" was really what
opened up the world of dolphins to me.

I was so amazed at their intellegence..and how
they seem to enjoy interacting with humans.

I have included a few Dolphin links I found
interesting and thought you might also.

I hope you will enjoy this brief journey
into the World Of Dolphins..

~Children's Story Pages~

August 1999

I think one of my very favorite memories of my
childhood is my mother and grandma reading
to me. All warm and cozy on their laps.
Or their sitting on my bed reading me to sleep.
These special memories will always be with me.

I hope you and your children or grandchildren
will enjoy the stories. Perhaps they will bring
back special memories of your own childhood.

I have also included a few links of stories
and fairy tale pages at the bottom of the
5th page after "The Story Of Thumbelina".

Some of your older children that can read
may also like to check out these links for
themselves and maybe read to you.

~A Tribute To The United States~

March, 2000

This page is an editorial from a Canadian
newspaper, dated December 1999..

A Canadian broadcaster gave this tribute
on his program and it was featured in this newspaper..

How wonderful that someone from another
country would defend the USA in this manner.
I only wish more citizens of other countries
could feel and think as this man does..

I felt it deserved to be made into a page so
everyone has an opportunity to read it.

A big Thank You to Mr. Sinclair..

~Growing Older-Growing Up~

July, 2000

This page is a story about the wisdom of
growing older by a wonderful lady named Rose,
as told by a former classmate of her's.

There is some great advise for every one
no matter what your age is..
I hope you will enjoy reading this
as much as I did..

~Land Of The Free And The Brave~

September, 2001

September 11, 2001..
A date we shall never forget!

Thousands of our family and friends were taken
from us in an instant.. How could something so
terrible happen right here in our homeland..

Our lives will never be the same.. I just
couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing..
I saw it but it wasn't real.. it just couldn't
be real.. but it was!

Well they have broken our hearts, but they can
never break our spirits!! May God Bless Us All,
and guide us in whatever we need to do to make
sure this can never happen anywhere again..

~Merry Christmas~

December 2000

Christmas.. My most favorite time of all..

That special time when our hearts are filled
with love and the spirit of giving..

Giving of our love, our time, ourselves..

A time to rejoice.. A time of remberance..
To remember the blessings God has bestowed
upon our lives and to share those blessings
with others who are less fortunate..
Whether it be monatarily.. or spirtually..

Here you will find a "Christmas Story" that
shows of the spirit of Christmas.. and a
verse about your "Christmas Tree"..

Wishing you all Season's Blessings and may
the spirit of Christmas be with you always..
