Comments: Growing up, my family moved around a lot. I never got a feeling of Home. Sandford for me has become that. It's the place that I'm closes to. I love the site, it allows me to visit some of my favorite places, and takes me back to some of my fondest memories. Thanks.

Comments: I am originally form the small community of Abram's River.  I have been in Halifax since 1972, but my heart has never really left Yarmouth.  Although I have been married for 27 years and have a great family, I always seem to think of home, the friends I had (and miss) and the fond memories of my youth.  I always do and always will speak of the community I grew up in and Yarmouth in general with great pride.  Although I visit home on occassion, I especially look forward to the Acadian Congress next summer.

Comments: Only this week have I learned that my paternal grandfather's half brother, Raymond Whitehouse, stayed in South Yarmouth for many years, the last Xmas card being sent in 1992 from my aunt here in UK, to which there was no reply.  My grandfather's name was Archibald Gillies.

However, I am aware that there was a David Whitehouse whom I presume to be their son.  I have a photo of him when he was 20 years of age or thereabouts when I was also sent a cardboard flat pack "All American"!! Doll's House (complete with clapboard effect!) in the 1950's - yes I'm going back a bit!  This would make David now about 66 years old - his father would be Raymond Whitehouse of Scottish origin.  I have the postal address to which my aunt sent her Xmas cards - and in fact I have a photo of said house taken when my grandparents visited during the 1950's.

All this and I have just finished decorating our new coastal weekend/holiday apartment in the "New England" style!!  Would appreciate any local information/advice - and I would definitely love to visit your area - postponed our Silver Wedding Anniversary trip a couple of years ago
but it would make it even sweeter when we do manage to make it, if we had "long distance" relatives to meet!

Comments: Just found this site...so interesting!  Here is a receipe for Rappie Pie (that some have requested) that was given to me years ago.
First step:- Put your meat (pork or chicken etc) and onions on to cook with some salt & pepper to taste and lots of water.
Second step:- Grate potatoes and squeeze through a clean thin cloth. Keep the potatoes and water squeezed from them separate. Measure the amount of water taken out and pour down the drain.  Be sure to save the starch and mix with the potatoes.
Third step:- When the meat is cooked pour as much water  off of  it that you took from the potatoes and mix through the potatoes evenly until well blended in.
Fourth step:- Line your pan with a layer of potatoes, then a layer of the meat (onions) and top with another layer of potatoes.
Bake in a moderate oven 350 for 2 - 3 hours.
Amount of meat and potatoes depend on size of pie!

Cheaters method...buy the potatoe mix already packaged in a store while visiting YARMOUTH (my former home was Port Maitland NS!)
