Ok, the genetics game: mother's side: Sicilian. Paternal grandmother, Czech/Irish, paternal grandfather, Seneca (Iroquois) full blood.


Hmm, my post isn't showing up. Lemme see ..

*blink*


Nope Reposting (thank you CTRL+C!)

Hmm. Lesse:

Adopted family: 100% pure Irish: Grandparents were: Curtin, MacDounaugh, Ryan, Cochran.

Bio Family: Canadian Scotts-Irish mutts: Grandparents were: MacIntyre, Ramsay, Samms, and ? (Not in contact with bio father's side of things, so don't know the maiden name of paternal gmom). Some Arcadian French and MicMac in the mix way back (as I was told). The families date waaay back into Nova Scotia (esp. Cape Breton's) history. One cousin still holds the original land grant an ancestor got from the Crown at the Battle of Louisbourg.

As an aside, should you ever be travelling in the Cape Breton area, and like history, you should visit the historical site of Louisbourg. It is a living history site, and you can wander about, have an authentic 18th century meal, watch the cannons fire, and a lot of cool stuff.

Honestly, I am more of a German kind of guy. Or, Irish.

What about someone who is part German and Irish?
*raises his hand*

I was raised Irish, but genetically I am Scots-Irish by way of Canada. A relative of mine actually founded Dalhousie University.

Fun history fact: During the Highland Clearances, the dispossed Scotsmen had two places they could go: Nova Scotia or the Carolinas. So the inhabitants of Nova Scotia are closely related to the southerners of America. Also, the French settlers who wouldn't pledge allegiance to the British crown after Nova Scotia was conquered (it was called Arcadia by them) were settled in another French possesion: Louisiana. Thus the 'Arcadians' became the 'Cajuns'. Another southern US-Nova Scotia tie (there are still quite a few Arcadians left in NS)

This has been your unasked for history lesson with professor Monkey...

Ah the Le Grand Dérangement. One day I wish to go to the Grand-Pré National Historic Site and see the Deportation Cross

Hey! You're right! Haven't seen him around in a while.

Logue! LOGUE! Why hast thou forsaken us?

... Yeah I don't have a response for that.

RE: Bloodlines... little bit of everything European and American. I'm told I have at least one Cherokee princess and one Confederate officer in my ancestry, but I don't know any details.

Mostly Polish & German. So I'm always blitzkreiging myself.

What about that Pett guy? Doesn't he live in London? Maybe we can pay him with hookers and blow to go bug the s##* out of Logue. Then again, he might just do that for free.....

Damnit, if I hadn't decided to vacuum and get dinner started I coulda posted on it one last time. :(

Oh well, the new place is nice. Guess we got our work cut out for us boys (and girls) if we want to make Gary earn his keep. :)

We've got to beat the percentage of the last thread - so anything over 10%.

My fellow Fawtlies, we are gathered here today to remember our beloved Fawtly Towers, it was good home to us over the months. It was a place where we found new friends, and made them wonder what was wrong with us. We must morn the thread that is lost to us now, for it goes to that archive in the sky, and someday we will rejoin it and those that came before it. Let us instead rejoice in this thread, named by or dear zombie friend, let us continue the dream of harmony and silliness. Let us see how far we can push it this time! Amen.

Since the other thread got shut down ... I didn't want anyone to miss this...

Pictures uploaded. Enjoy.

Yakee Boy Basin was incredible. I didn't have as much time there as I would have liked. We hiked around 4 miles going up and along the way, I kept saying -- "ok, on the way back, I'll take some time to get a good picture of that..." The only problem was, while we were at the top it started raining. Hard. Thankfully, some people took pitty on two soaking people and gave us a ride down to our car -- but I missed a lot of pictures I really wanted to take. (Note to self -- if you've got the shot, take it!)

Take a good look at the pics. I've added around 30 new pics recently.
