Best thing for nails...is gummi bears...or gummi worms, or anything with gelatin. Makes them nice and strong...try it!

lately, my other obsession has been genealogy. I've been driving myself bananas looking for birth and death records that don't seem to exist.

We did that, too. We found my DH's family back to the Revolutionary War and mine back to about 1800 when they came over from Luxembourg.

Here's a few good sites. You sometimes have to try a few different ways of finding info on one site. People sometimes enter the dates incorrectly or there are misspellings. We also went to the National Archives. If you're lucky enough to live near one try them as well.

Crycket, I have to leave the Gummi Bears alone cause I have diabeties. I don't cut them until one breaks. The nail polish I was talking about is Pure Ice. It's fun and cheap.

ah that is too bad...but I think they still have gelatin caps...I could be wrong. Either way...it is the gelatin that makes them nice and strong.

I believe there are sugar free gummi candy as well...but I know that kinda thing doesn't come cheap. My dad is diabetic too...

I'm obsessed with nails, too! I have a few O.P.I. and Essie nail polishes, but my collection is mostly China Glaze. Some colors are hit and miss, but for the most part, their stuff is pretty cool.

I like doing all sorts of different designs. My current manicure:



And yes. That's a World Cup bracket sheet in the background. Yet another obsession of mine

Thanks, Jan. I've also found the specific county-based genealogy sites are often great - that's where I found an obituary for my "victim's" half-brother that listed more siblings which led to a parent's name. I am on Ancestry.com, but it doesn't have everything. I'll have to try these other links.

SF Gummi Bears? How cool. I have never heard of Essie. Will have to look it up or google it. Spoke too soon, now my thumb nail is cracked at the quick but, it hasn't come off yet. Can't see it either. Maybe I can get them painted cool one more time before I have to cut them.
