a daughter, Nancy Angelina Johnson who married James Gist Prince and they had
a son, Clarence Rhett Prince who married Alice Ella Briggs and they had
a son, Franklin Drayton Prince who married Mary "Mollie" Cynthia Bain and they had
a son, Julian Rhett Prince who married Clara Marie Wilder and they had
a daughter, Peggy who is Stan's mother

James "Jimmie" Johnson, Jr. was born about 1790 in South Carolina to James Johnson, Sr. and Sally ?. He married Dosia Ray. Dosia Ray was born about 1798 in Union County, SC to William Ray ( DOB about 1773 in Union County, SC; DOD 7/1/1844 in Cross Keys, Union County, SC) and Margaret Alexander (DOB about 1775 in Wilkes County, NC; DOD about 1848 in Cross Keys, Union County, SC).

James Johnson, Jr. and Dosia Ray had 5 children that I know of:
1) Nancy Angelina Johnson (DOB 4/10/1835 in Union County, SC; DOD 6/8/1915 in Union County, SC) married James Gist Prince, Sr. in 1853 in Union County, SC. After James Gist Prince died, she remarried to Henry Burnett between 1870-1880 in Union County, SC.

According to the 1850 U.S. Census of Union County, SC James Johnson, Jr. was 60 years old and his wife, Sarah, was 34. So he must have married again. There is a 5 year old son listed so it's possible that he married soon after Dosia died and they had a son that was 5 yrs old by the 1850 Census. He was listed as a Farmer.

In the 1860 U.S. Census of Cross Keys, Union County, SC (pg 21, Line 4) James Johnson, Jr. was listed as 70 years old and his wife, Sarah, was 43. He had $1,000 worth of real estate value and $200 in personal estate value.

A Presumption Of Death by Jill Paton Walsh & Dorothy L. Sayers

A Presumption Of Death by Jill Paton Walsh and Dorothy L. Sayers

This wonderful book was based on some of Dorothy L. Sayers last writings concerning Lord Peter Wimsey and his wife, Harriet. From November 1939 to January 1940 Dorothy Sayers made a series of contributions to the Spectator magazine consisting of mock letters to and from various members of the Wimsey family about war-time conditions. These contributions were referred to as "The Wimsey Papers". There was also a short story called "Talboys" contained in the volume "Striding Folly" which shows Peter and Harriet and their children living in the country in their farmhouse peacefully together in 1942. Jill Walsh took these papers and made a story around them and did a wondeful job! I loved this book and highly recommend it!

Energy Saving Lightbulbs

I'm not a big fan of the energy saving flourescent light bulbs. They don't give good light despite their claims to be as bright as a whatever watt bulb. To me it's a weak, watery light and it takes time for it to warm up plus they are expensive. But I've been slowly switching to them thinking it was the right thing to do. After hearing this speech, I'm re-thinking my use of energy saving fluorescent lightbulbs.

Luke Learned How To Balance A Penny On A Spinning Coat Hanger

http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to/video/how-to-balance-a-penny-on-a-spinning-coat-hanger-102229/

At our Father's Day Cookout, Ronnie told Luke about someone at work who could balance a penny on a coat hanger and spin it around. So Luke had to try and he finally did pretty well!




By the way, there are three other centripetal force experiments that children can try demonstrating centripetal force. One experiment is a ball on a string that is whirled in a circle above your head. When the string is released the ball travels off in a straight line. The second experiment is a coat hanger with a penny. The penny is balanced on the tip of the hook and then the coat hanger is whirled in a vertical circle as the penny stays on thetip. The last experiment is a bucket of water that is also whirled in a vertical circle and the water stays in the bucket.

The speed of a moving body and its direction of movement remain constant according to Newton's first law (law of inertia) if no force acts on it. The circumstances of a circular motion are different: In this case there must be a force, the so-called centripetal force, which is directed to the axis of rotation. Any motion in a curved path represents accelerated motion, and requires a force directed toward the center of curvature of the path. This force is called the centripetal force which means, in latin, "center seeking" force. Whenever an object moves in a circular path we know the object is accelerating because the velocity is constantly changing direction. All accelerations are caused by a net force acting on an object. In the case of an object moving in a circular path, the net force is a special force called the centripetal force (not centrifugal!).
