Some of you may recognize this old house. I recently took another trip back, and the man who owns it was mowing the grass. So.... I got a little history.


The Guyitt house was built circa 1845 and purchased by the current owners grandparents Roy and Ethel Guyitt. Their children a son and a daughter remained in the home until the daughter passed away in 2003. At that time the grandson Pete purchased this home to keep in his family. He does maintain the exterior as best as can be, there have been wedding photos taken here among other countless stories he was happy to share ~ thank you so much Pete


Still away but trying to keep up, hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, it's sunny here in Nova Scotia today, a great day for adventures

Listen to Bette Midler on You Tube Sing "This Ole' House"


This Ole House

This ole house once knew my children.

This ole house once knew my life.

This ole house was home and comfort

as we lived through storm and strife.

This ole house once rang with laughter.

This ole house heard many shouts.

Now she trembles in the darkness

when the lightning walks about.


Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer.

Ain't a-gonna need this house no more.

Ain't got time to fix the shingles.

Ain't got time to fix the floor.

Ain't got time to oil the hinges,

nor to mend the window panes.

Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer.

I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints.


This ole house is gettin' shaky.

This ole house is gettin' old.

This ole house lets in the rain.

This ole house lets in the cold.

On my knees I'm gettin' shaky,

but I feel no fear or pain,

'cause I see an angel peekin'

through a broken window pane.


I ain't a-gonna need this house no longer.

Ain't a-gonna need this house no more.

Ain't got time to fix the shingles.

Ain't got time to fix the floor.

I ain't got time to oil the hinges,

nor to mend the window panes.

Ain't a-gonna need this house no longer.

I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints.


This ole house is afraid of thunder.

This ole house is afraid of storms.

This ole house just groans and trembles

when the night wind flings its arms.

This ole house is gettin' feeble.

This old house is needin' paint.

Just like me it's tuckered out,

but I'm a-gettin' ready to meet the saints.


Thank you Flickr Friends, I appreciate your visits, comments, invites and favs.

Where I first met my husband at a party. This year will be 20 years since we've met! Took me that long to stop and take a photo.

Fantastic old church houses next to the Kennet & Avon Canal in Kintbury. Maybe one day I'll live there!


Historical country house also to be opened to the public

As of 1 September, the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam will be using the historical country house, Trompenburg, as an extra location. Trompenburg, which is close to Hilversum, was built after 1677 by Admiral Cornelis Tromp (1621-1691), the son of the legendary Admiral Maarten Harpertsz Tromp. The residence, that was built to resemble a ship, will be open for use by the Rijksmuseum from 1 April to 1 October for holding lectures, small conferences and small-scale exhibitions. In addition, Trompenburg will also be opened to the public a few times each year.


A monument for the Tromp family

Throughout the years, Trompenburg House has been a home to different families, and has been in the care of the Government Buildings Agency as a monument since 1938. Cornelis Tromp, who was the commander-in-chief of the Dutch and Danish fleet, built Trompenburg as a monument for himself and his ancestors, his father in particular. The Tromp family's glory is the theme of the dome hall - which can be seen as the maritime answer to the Oranjezaal, the central chamber in Huis ten Bosch Palace. The dome hall contains the portraits of father and son Tromp and both their wives, portraits of the ships and the naval battles.


Decoration and exhibitions

Trompenburg will not be used for large exhibitions, as the country residence is too small. However, the Rijksmuseum is considering whether the house could be decorated with art works on a limited scale. Where possible, any art work that is selected will be in keeping with the themes of life on a 17th Century country estate and the maritime history of the period of 1630 and 1690.


Due to the limited capacity of Trompenburg House, the exhibitions as well as the lectures and conferences will all be small-scale. The house will be opened to the public once a month during the April-October season (six times in total). A steward will reside at Trompenburg House.

Sits abandoned here. Almost like time has stood still, a strange feeling...

Public holiday and everybody had to get out of the house....arguments of where we were going ended up in algorithm with a heuristic solution......hah the driver made the choice.


We saw walkways, roads leading nowhere, toilets galore (for once) and beautiful houses that lead to reciprocal determinism. In other words...I want to have. It's like facing the contents of a candy shop ......penny in the pocket...$1...candy stick.


Approach-approach conflict.........

Owned by the National Trust

When you drive across the surrounding park and see Chatsworth House for the first time, a sumptuous pile of yellow stone surrounded by gardens, fronted by the River Derwent and backed by a tree-covered hillside, it fairly takes your breath away. It is not hard to see why this is the premier tourist attraction of the area.


The original house here was the work of Sir William Cavendish and his third wife Bess of Hardwick in the mid 16th Century. Sir William was a Crown Commissioner responsible for dissolving monasteries and his reward was a gift of land here. Sir William died in 1557 with the house partly constructed and Bess completed a house with a central courtyard and four corner towers, facing east towards the hillside. No trace of this can now be seen, but the modern house retains many of the Elizabethan interior walls and the Huntingtower on the hill above the house dates from the 1580s.


The first Duke rebuilt Chatsworth in Classical style between 1686 and 1707, using an obscure Dutch architect called William Talman. He later fired Talman and the house was completed by Thomas Archer.


The Library and North Wing were added by the 6th Duke between 1790 and 1858, the work of Wyatville, and the stables and bridges over the River Derwent were added in the 18th century by Paine. The park was landscaped by the 4th Duke (1720-1764), who engaged 'Capability' Brown to reshape the formal garden into the more natural one you see today.


The 6th Duke engaged Joseph Paxton as the head gardener at the age of 23, resulting in the enrichment of the gardens and the creation of the Emperor Fountain (to impress the Czar of Russia when he visited) as well as the Great Conservatory. Paxton worked at Chatsworth the rest of his life, staying for 32 years. The house and gardens have remained little changed since this time, the only major exception being the demolition of the Great Conservatory and its replacement by a maze.


Many famous people have come to Chatsworth, some to stay and others to live there. Among the most famous are Mary Queen of Scots, who was here as a guest and prisoner of Bess of Hardwick and her fourth husband, the Earl of Shrewsbury, between 1573 and 1582. Another was Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, who lived here in a famous 'menage a trois' with the 5th Duke and Lady Elizabeth Foster in the late 18th century.
