Happy New Year

Personally 2010 has been a roller coaster of amazing highs - spending the night in Cinderella's Castle - and profound lows - my father's death. Just two examples.

But life and the years go on. I will always treasure the memories not only of the past years events both happy and bitter but also the support the readers of Shout First have given me. I am grateful for the positive experiences and even the negative ones. My husband had a bad health scare but it revealed a medical condition that he is now receiving treatment for. Ultimately a good thing.

Thank you. And it is my heartfelt and fervent wish that everyone, everyone have a brighter New Year filled with good fortune, love and peace.

The Business of America Has Always Been Business

Jamestown unearths 400-year-old pipes for patrons Because I love archeology, I was attracted to this article but my take away is that from its very first moments of existence, people came to the colonies and America to make money and have a better, freer life.
Tobacco's popularity created a large demand for pipes that were typically made in London using white clay from Dorset, along England's southern coast. Interested in the lucrative new industry, investors in the Virginia Company sought to add pipemaking to its trades and sought out adequate clay from the surrounding area.

Settlers, Kelso said, were under "tremendous pressure" to give investors the instant gratification they needed because "they put so much money into it," and didn't want to lose their lifeline to England. Colonists tried different trades such as silk making, glassmaking, lumber, sassafras and tar, with no financial success.

"The whole idea was to make money for investors and they enlisted all these specialists that would search Virginia for profitable resources that they could exploit," Straube said. "Tobacco was the quickest and easiest and most successful."

Caused by warming?

BRITAIN’S winter is the coldest since 1683 and close to being the chilliest in nearly 1,000 years.

Latest figures reveal that the average temperature since December 1 has been a perishing -1C.

That makes it the second coldest since records began in 1659.
