there is a fb group- fans of sir micheal palin. some epically funny ppl there.
i was awarded the badge of the spanish inquitition by a guy named norman, who may or may not have spines. it was hard fought. i had to promise him a shubbery. then i had to promse him 2.
i also found out that if you order a book from his personal website, he will autograph it.
so i ordered 'a sackful of limricks'. i recounted the story, and he signed my book- nobody expects the badge of the spanish inquisition.
dang. i sure do like this site. i got the premium package so i can trace the irish part of the history.
cheaper than ancestry. uploaded dna and found a cousin from the same county where my gramps was born. having a nice convo.
soooo easy to use. tree is up to over 100 ppl, when i added only a doz by hand.
found the ellis island records of my paternal grandparents. famine refugees who came in steerage. i thought this was the case, but what a wave of sadness to see that in writing.
but boy howdy. learning a lot about the irish gift for holding grudges. my dad's mom had 10 sibs. never met a one. many stayed in delavan wi, but many moved to chicago, as did my grandparents.
had already found out that my mom's mom had 10 sibs also, 6 of which stay in new york after arriving. my mom had no idea. she died thinking that her brother's 3 kids and their kids were her only living family. they used to come to our house before their dad died, in his 40's. but the ties died w him. xmas cards was about it. i did reconnect w his oldest daughter through 23/me.
the rest of the sibs that came to chicago had no kids. one of those grandneices got married in a big wedding and didnt invite her. about the saddest i ever saw her.
anyway. highly recommend this site. had an ancestry account, and had a terrible time getting my password reset. this was $149/yr for premium. feel like i have gotten that much out of it the week i have been using it.
today would be a good day for donald trump to-
my reply- have that heart attack he so richly deserves. he should eat 100 big macs. lets get this show on the road.
he was like the brutal, drunk or high old man that abused them and made them what they are.
and they hate that summbitch.
he f'ed himself tonight. cant wait to see the polls.
of a gutter drunk who has shit and pissed his pants and is crying for his momma.
jebus clown is right, joe.
or are we on our own here?
my absolute fave. my prophet rly.
he saved me life. i have 14 albums on my phone and during some of the worst yrs of my life, as i was trying to earn my certificate of design, i listened to those on shuffle commuting to downtown and back. there was always some song that spoke to the moment i was in.
this is my fave of them all. just started taking voice lessons, and this is the songs we are working on.
i was pleasantly surprised to learn there are more verses. but a tad disappointed that he changed several of the lyrics.
i wasnt rly in the market, but i switched from att to tmobile, and they practically made me take it.
but damn. i have had 3 mac laptops, 3 iphones, and this is the most counterintuitive device ever.
i tried making my way through the set up, and i hit a snag.
it is asking me for a passcode. but a- i hate passcodes. i hate locks and keys period. no way would i set a passcode.
and b- i never got that far in the process.
what the heck happened to plug and play?
just that welcome screen makes me what to pull my hair out. took me several run throughs before it came up in english and i figured out it was swipe down, not rt.
please tell me that if i ever get to the keyboard there is an escape key.
sorry, c/p defeating me, but @jennifer cohn says hillary was told not to contest election results.
joe and kamala better be bringin the brass knuckles this time.
tho, he has already said he would not concede w/o an audit.
and i am STILL mad at john kerry for taking the $42M he raised for election lawyers and running home from ohio. i will die mad about that.
