My sister Jan gave me a clipping from the Kanawha Reporter with your article about Aunt Net’s house, etc. Great article.
I am Ada’s oldest daughter so have many memories also of that house and your Mom and sisters.
I also am helping Ken Eekhoff who is working on geneologies of the Assink family. Could you send me your email address? I do not have your family information because I do most of my work by email.
Thanks so much!

Hey Angie,

I love the blog! I am an obesity awareness advocate and I think your site would be great for inspiration. Many of my readers have tried so many things to change their weight situation and it has gotten them to an emotional point where it is hard to keep a positive outlook on life. I would like to talk about we can for an online partnership in order to help those struggling with obesity. My email is so if you are interested please email me. Thanks!



Love the blog! The City of North Liberty has it’s annual Liberty Centre Blues & BBQ event on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend (May 30, 2010). I’d love you to be a judge of the barbecue contest. It’s pretty easy: show up, eat bbq, score it and we announce a winner.

All the judges are food experts, so I think you’d be a GREAT addition! Email me: we’d love to have you.
