" I want to Welcome You to my Homepage.  But what is Home ? 


Is it hundreds or perhaps thousands of ever changing personalities
 
surrounded by steel and concrete or trees and nature ?  We do


sometimes become confused and unsure of what we're running
 
to or from.  However, Remember that we can control our Eternal Destiny.
 
Search your soul, then follow your heart and you'll find the answer.
 
Also, If you truly care for someone as a friend, don't be afraid to let
 
each other be yourselves. If you never stop wanting to learn, Believe


in yourself while practicing random kindness and senseless
 
acts of beauty, God will shine his light on you.

From an Old French form of a Germanic name.  The second element is
Germanic frid "peace", but the first element may be either gawia "territory",
walah "stranger", gisil "hostage" or god "god" (see Godfrey).  It is possible
that two or more names merged into a single form.  The name was
 introduced to England by the Normans, where it became common among
the nobility.  Famous liteary bearers include the 12th-century chronicler
Geoffrey of Monmouth and the 14th-century poet Geoffrey Chaucer,
writer of ' The Canterbury tales '.
