Planning Christmas Decorations Can Be a Pleasant Experience
It's never too early to plan a Christmas! In our country some people say it's always a good time to wish somebody a happy new year - till 30th June for the current and after 30th June for the next one. Thanks for so many great decorating ideas!

Benefits of Web 2.0
Thanks, blackspanielgallery. I think we all have biter-sweet memories about Squidoo. I was at Zujava too (and still occasionally active on Hubpages). All these sites (and many more) gave us a lot, but had some downsides as well. I will write an ...

The Traditional Languages and Dialects of the British Isles
That's very interesting. We don't even have paper records going back that far, so if I were to look I wouldn't find anything. In Western Europe and Transylvania churches kept these records; not in other parts of Romania though.

Benefits of Web 2.0
This is quite useful. I started writing on Ezine and learned much, then moved to squidoo (no longer there). I wrote on Zujave, no longer a site, and briefly on Hubpages. Now I write on wizzley. I believe all of there are exactly the kinds of ...

The Traditional Languages and Dialects of the British Isles
Historians believed that the Welsh descended from the ancient Britons. It is only in recent years that they have realized that the English are substantially descended from the ancient Britons as well. So you are freckled too. Are you descended ...

So the Welsh were not considered to have a Celtic background until the 19th century? Then what did historians before then say about their ancestors? Incidentally, I'm quite freckled too :)

The Traditional Languages and Dialects of the British Isles
Just one point. Though Irish, Welsh etc are known as Insular Celtic, the British and Irish never described themselves as Celtic, which described certain tribes in Europe known to the Romans. The term Celtic was first applied to the peoples of ...

The Traditional Languages and Dialects of the British Isles
An interesting point.There is,however, no direct link between Celts and Jews, but the link comes from a common source of Middle Eastern ancestry. I have been told on several occasions that that I look Celtic/Irish. When I was young my hair was ...

This is pretty amazing but it probably explains why some descendants of Celtic people look like some Jewish people, with reddish hair and freckles :)

Can We Regulate Smoking?
I know there are cultures that smoke more than others. Some cultures seem to pride themselves on this. I have no idea why. As a drug, I am suspect in seeing a benefit, for what seems to be the apparent benefit to those people claiming that is ...
