May 2011 Searing’s on the Internet Entry

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

Finally getting caught up on Searing internet entries:

May was a good month for Searing news.  In early May Head Coach George Searing of the Northport Boys Lacrosse team lead his team to an important victory to qualify them for a better seeding in year end action.  Sachem Patch:  http://sachem.patch.com/articles/northport-boys-lax-topples-sachem-east

George is also quoted in a later Patch (May 19th) as his team scored a big victory in first round of the lax playoffs.
      

Dan Searing, Jr is quoted on the history and strengths of bourbon in the Washington Post Express on May 5.  And on May 9, Dan’s book was published in May,  ”The Punch Bowl.” (Mark A. Gore – Sterling Epicure / Sterling Publishing), and available on Amazon.  Great book for punch lovers….and oh, yeah, my son….:)


A new Searing business also was mentioned:  http://www.heidisearing.com/   This is a web design firm in Seattle WA.

A fascinating story on youth sports injuries appeared May 10, 2011 for the IL paperHarold News. featuring Marianne Searing’s daughter Ashley, and recounting Ashley’s injuries on the field of play and her determination to continue playing sports.  http://beaconnews.suntimes.com/4795103-417/parents-student-athletes-must-weigh-costs-of–sports-injuries.html

On May 16, Nate Searing (Ashley’s brother) gets his own credit for pitching a winning game against a strong opponent.  Details at    http://southtownstar.suntimes.com/sports/5410999-419/baseball-joliet-catholic-takes-down-marian-catholic.html

Nate is also mentioned in a May 28 Southtown Star article.  Way to pitch, Nate

Candace and Dick Searing were instrumental in organizing a Scenic Race4Hope bicycle outing  as a fund raiser to battle cancer, as reported in the Syracuse.com blog on May 19.  This is quite an event with an interesting history, as reported at     http://blog.syracuse.com/neighbors/2011/05/scenic_bicycle_race_above_skaneateles_lake_has_passionate_roots.html

Daniel Searing and Vickie Gann were married on June 11, 2011.  That’s about all I know…their names came up on a google alert for Daniel Searing.  Congrats to the couple!

Daniel Searing, MD also surfaces in my alerts.  He is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and pediatric allergy specialist at National Jewish Health in Denver.  I would like to do a separate piece on him and will seek to talk with him.

Linda Searing also appears from time to time in the alerts, for her excellent medical article summaries that you may see in your local paper.  I know she appears in the Washington Post weekly.

Searing Census of Name Variations in the 50 States

Monday, July 18th, 2011

I have created a spreadsheet in Google Docs listing the states in alphabetical order down the left hand column, and Searing name and variations at the top of  the columns to the right.  The name and viariations are: Searing, Serring, Sering, Seiring, Syring, Siring, Sehring.  I will be happy to add any reasonable variations suggested.When done this should give us an approximation of the numbers of the “Searing” name and variations in all the states.  Of course the information available is only from public records available on the internet through the common ‘people’ search engines.  I make no claim as to their accuracy or reliability.Since this is in Google Docs, I am happy to give you access to this spreadsheet if you want to help with the survey.  Just send me a note thru the blog or on FB (Daniel A. Searing) and I will reply by message.  Let’s see how this works!  Could easily be expanded to other research projects.Any and all suggestions welcome!       Special thanks to Scott Searing from FB for this idea! He has also contributed to this blog.    Also check out the My Name is Searing on Facebook.     Dan
