Re: mulch NOW Names


This discussion of names ( a hobby of mine for many years) has gotten me out
of lurker status.  Ths information about "Zemuly" is so interesting!  Zem,
what is the ethnic / cultural / whatever background of your family?  I just
did a google search on Zemuly and it turned up several Zemulys in
genealogical references, and also the town you mentioned, Z, Mississippi
named for a  Z Morgan.
    I am in Grass Valley full time now -- still nothing planted in what
passes for "ground": around here but have some nice planters on the deck
now.  Am spending a lot of time hacking thru manzanita and ceanothus making
trails out to the edges of my property.  For some reason this is very
enjoyable -- my version of taming the wilderness, I guess.  I still have not
made it to the south border (down a fairly steep hill) to where I can
overlook my road.
