Welcome to Sunday All Day Brunch. This is an open topic thread so help yourself to the goodies and sit a spell and let us know what is new with you. In cleaning out my parent’s house I boxed up a ton of pictures. Some were labeled other were not. I've started scanning in pictures and putting them on discs for the family. I have tons more to scan and I haven't even started on Dad’s slides. I'm hoping when my brother can move out here that he can give me a hand in sorting and I can get more scanned in.

In the meantime I have tried to get the oldest and most fragile pictures scanned. It is like looking into a glass that shows a past that was from before I was born or even thought of. It is fascinating to say the least. So follow me as we venture into the Past.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
