Here is another convenient way to send us your thoughts on down-home living, and comment on the stories you've read in Downhome. All will be considered for inclusion in the "Notes from Home" section of the magazine.
I just want to say another thank you for the article you guys printed in the July issue of the Downhome mag. about my mom and dad, Percy and Jean Noseworthy.
I also wanted to show you the collage my daughter Debbie made using the page from the magazine and the original articles. She also found this picture of the four of us, taken on the southside of St John's, a few days before Dad was shipped out. Left to right: Dad Percy, Mom Jean, little brother Gerald, and me, Heber (Herb). He was a bandsman in the Canadian Army band. The music is another story I just remembered, after opening a old box of old letters that belong to my mom from my dad. ... Hide full submission

This rug was made by my husband's grandmother, Jesse Coffin from Joe Batt's Arm, Fogo Island. I believe it was made sometime in the 1920s or 30s. I believe they were made to keep the women from going stir crazy in the long winter months! What do your readers know about these rugs?

My name is Rich Wheeler, originally from Baie Verte. My wife has recently being diagnosed with a terminal brain disease called Huntington's Disease. Her brother Rick, also has this disease. Their Dad and sister have since passed from it. In an effort to bring awareness to it we just completed our second annual Team HD Run for a Cure. We held this on July 5th and covered the distance between Baie Verte and Coachman's Cove...20kms. My son Jordan and my nephew Cory whose Dad has HD, ran the entire 20 kms themselves. It started out wet but we ended with a fabulous sunny afternoon. We had approx 70 participants and we had a goal of raising $5000 for research.....as of today we have close to $12,000 raised!! We would like to extend a huge thank you to our families and friends who came out to support us and also to the many people who donated to our cause, More information in Huntingtons disease can be found at ww.huntingtons society.ca and at www.teamhd,ca. Also anyone can contact me at constabman45@ nl.rogers.com. If they wish to assist in the formation of a chapter in the our area.
Thanks again to everyone for their support.

I enjoyed reading Joan Fantina’s article in a recent issue of Downhome entitled “Reunion Memories; End of an Era”. It was a heart-warming account of a family group’s return to Fox Harbour in search of their roots. It is yet another example of the strong bonds that bind Newfoundlanders together, and their response to the call of the homeland to revisit. Although I left NL to further my career over fifty years ago, I have always had a soft spot in my heart for down home, and since retiring in 1994 in Nova Scotia, I find the call to revisit my roots even stronger as years go by, and do so yearly if I can. Reunions are great way to perpetuate the ties that bind.

This picture was taken in Joe Batt's Arm in my grandparents' house, and it sums up the importance of family and being home near loved ones. I took this picture and it shows my grandmother holding my baby girl and her great-granddaughter, Irelynn Jane. All the while my grandfather looks on, awaiting his turn with a soft and excited heart. This pic could not have been obtained if living away from home and the heartfelt feeling of extended love would have never been captured. There's no place like home. ... Hide full submission

This is a photo taken this spring of a squirrel's nest under the hood of my Ford Escape, on the battery. This nest was built from Friday evening to Monday morning. A fellow went to check the oil and this is what we found. Anyone with squirrels around their place, please check their car motors.
