 Liebe Tante Rosi,
alles, alles Gute zu Deinem Geburtstag wünscht Dir Martina mit Uli, Maxi und Emma.
Ich wünsche Dir, dass du einen unbeschwerten und fröhlichen Tag hast wie in dem folgenden Gedicht von Joachim Ringelnatz:
Zupf dir ein Wölkchen aus dem Wolkenweiß,
das durch den sonnigen Himmel schreitet.
Und schmücke den Hut, der dich begleitet,
mit einem grünen Reis.
Verstecke dich faul in die Fülle der Gräser.
Weil´s wohltut, weil´s frommt.
Und bist du ein Mundharmonikabläser
und hast eine bei dir, dann spiel, was dir kommt.
Und lass deine Melodien lenken
von dem freigegebenen Wolkengezupf.
Vergiss dich. Es soll dein Denken
nicht weiter reichen als ein Grashüpferhupf.

Genealogy:The History of the Butterworth Family
Posted by: Lukas Butterworth on Dec 25 2012 06:23

The name Butterworth is derived from BUTER WOHL, the home or house of BUTER.

BUTER appears to have been a Norse Viking who joined Harold Haarfarger in his rebellion against his brother Harold Haardraade. The Rebellion proved abortive and Harold Haarfarger was defeated and killed in a sea action off the Orkneys or Shetlands.His fleet was dispersed and after great trials at sea, Buter sailed down the west cost of Scotland.

Buter was prevented from landing in Scotland due to "the inhospitable nature of the coast and the ferocity of the inhabitants" and finally landed in Morcambe Bay.

From Morcambe he worked his way inland and settled in a large area southwest of the village of Rochdale. This became known as BOTWORTH (or Butterworth) until the early 1800's when it became part of Rochdale and the area's name was changed to Milnrow.

Local news:Olga Butterworth passed away
Posted by: Lukas Butterworth on Jan 2 2008 14:39
Olga Butterworth, Beloved lifeline and counselor in the Unity movement, passed suddenly December 26th at home In Greenwich, CT. She was 87. The widow of Eric Butterworth, she and her world-renowned late husband together formed the Unity Center in New York City, and in more than 30 years developed it from a tiny congregation into one of more than 7,000 congregants, holding weekly services in Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center. Olga, an ordained minister, continued to serve Unity, delivering her last meditation on December 23rd, the Sunday before Christmas. May Divine Love transform a challenging ending into a joyously fulfilled new beginning. "So be it," as Olga would say. Survivors include her beloved nieces Pauline Fiorita of Greenwich, Lucille Glascow of East Windsor, NJ, nephew Paul Bacco of Wilton, CT., and a stepson, Tom Butterworth of Seattle, WA. Also surviving is her adored Mignon, a Pappilion. Burial services are private. An open memorial is planned for a later date...
