Justin's Birthday ...

Justin turned 24 on Friday and so i took him to Battista's hole in the wall for dinner. Its such a cute restraunt on flamingo and audrie. call for reservations cause its always busy. Its family owned and operated for over 30 years. Service is always super and friendly. Its defently an old Las Vegas landmark.

This guy is the cutest. He has been working at battista's for 27 years. Im sitting down in this pictures and he is standing next to me. He was so excited that we were locals and sang us an elvis presley song.

The decore is really neat. very crowded and things are on top of one another. there is even a giant moose head in the lobby.

The menus is really simple. You have different prices for different groups, and then everything comes with soup or salad, garlic bread, pasta side, cappacino, and unlimited house wine.

Family Names ...

I have started justins side of my geneology tree, since i have gone so fare on my side (eight generations) I cant go any further on my moms side cause the church in Sweden that had all of the town records burnt to the ground many years ago. On my dads side i have traced it all the way back to Barthalamew Wallner. Here is a little bit of information i have collected on both family names.

Wallner originated in the German state of Bavaira. The surname is an occupational hereditary surname, a type of name that was taken fon a word describing the profession of the original bearer. It is a name for a powerful warrior or an army ruler. First found in bavaria, where the family made a considerable sontribution to the feudal society. The first individual bearer of the name to be mentioned in ancient chronicals was Hugo Wallner of Waldshut in the year 1298.

Hanson is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the baptismal name for the son of Hans. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of christian saints and other biblical figures. First found in Yorkshire where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before Norman Conquest and he arrival of Duke William at Hastinfs in 1066.
