Apparently Paregrine\'s family did other \"firsts\". Soon after the landing, his father died, and his mother remarried to Edward Winslow. It was the first wedding in the New World. Winslow later adopted Peregrine and made him an heir.

But, I guess he was somewhat of a bad boy in his younger years...As the article I read said: he appears to have had a dissolute youth, and was brought before the local court for \"fornication before marriage\" with his future wife Sarah. (that\'s how it was worded). It didn\'t give any details, like if it was in the back seat of Chevy or Ford

Today is the birthday of Peregrine White, in 1620, the first child born in the new world, on board the ship Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor.

Why do I know this you ask

My Aunt Joanne has traced our family tree & we are somehow related to Peregrine. This is how she became a member of the Mayflower Society. It was news to me until she called me tonight to tell me about him & an article in our local newspaper & fishrag today. (No offence Mick)

Yeah what Mies said, not much difference between or Gypsys & the Mafia. They buy used cars from our company, 2-3years old & very high mileage, always paid for with cash. Several times we have been contacted by the DMV because of discrepancys in the mileage on the speedometer not matching what was recorded when the title was transfered. Their answer is always \"the speedometer had to be replaced\" etc.etc.

Mornin\'...

Oops, it\'s afternoon. I\'m behind myself, slept late this morning because couldn\'t get to sleep last night. Happens sometimes, though usually I\'m a championship sleeper.

Mies...Hey grrrrrl. Sounds like a hard-to-deal-with Gypsy band you\'ve got out there. I spent a spare hour yesterday kind of reading up on the history and culture of the race, and they do seem to be a race, and though that doesn\'t make me an expert by any means, the differences from mainstream attitudes and customs within their group that I was reading about were striking. I try never to disrespect any one\'s cultural beliefs, but sometimes that takes a little effort.

Cont.

The main current hoo-ha about them is the well publicized wedding of two young gypsy girls, one in Ireland and one in the U.K.. One hundred thousand Euro weddings, they were, and to my taste, much too flamboyant all around, but the things that took the most flak in the pages and pages on the connected blogs, were the brides\' dresses. One had a white lace cropped top and a miniskirt, and the other had an incredibly big-skirted, pouffy, tulle dress that she completely disappeared into when she sat down. Only her head and, errr, her figure?, her feminine contours?,...oh well, I\'ll say it...her boobs stuck out. And the rest of the bridal party was dressed in day-glo orange. That would be a little over the top in my culture, but, hey, who am I to criticise any body else\'s taste when they have, and are entitled to, their own culturally accepted ideas? Those girls looked beautiful in a kind of exotic way, even to me.

Cont.

But what was sad to me were the very unkind remarks being written about the dresses, saying that these two looked like sluts and streetwalkers, which was about the mildest one I read. These were very young girls, children, really, just days over 16, quite lovely and very happy, seemingly, to be expressing what is acceptable in their world. In my world, it is unacceptable to call children ugly names, and ugly in the extreme to write them for all the world to read.

I remember being so disappointed at the wedding dress when Princess Diana was married, that wedding was shown in great detail here. Such a lovely girl she was, but that dress did not do her justice at all.

Somebody who should have known better put that lovely young thing into that Heidi dress, instead of something plain and sleek and regal with pleats and beautiful structure instead of all those ruffles and gathers...no female over 10 should wear sleeves like those puffed things that dress sported. I always liked Princess Di, and she dressed beautifully always after that, but that was disappointing to me, and basically within my culture, which means that my opinion has some validity. However, I didn\'t take that opportunity to tell the world that I didn\'t think she looked right, let alone call her insulting names. The internet, with all it\'s wonders, can be used for cruel things. Those two girls must be devastated.

Anyway, I\'m over my self-induced tummy ache from yesterday, and must be off to do something useful. I\'m sure there\'s something useful I have to do, I\'ll find it, and leave y\'all with my best wishes for a pleasant weekend.

Bye.

Who ordered the ice cream truck?...Jimmy, of course..Mafia or gypsies..Is there a difference?...hehehehe...I was trying to be kind when I posted, but trust me, that was not exactly how I feel...Even though they claimed the large amounts of money & jewelry confiscated in those police raids were items that belonged to the family(claiming,they didn\'t trust banks)most of us (non gypsies) don\'t quite believe that. In the long run, the only reason they won their law suit for 1.4 million against the city is because the police dropped the ball in the raids. Didn\'t get the correct paper work or something. Grrrrrrr...

Lively cleeks this morning, just what I need...thanks...

Jimmy Marks, became leader of the Gypsy family after the death of his father, Grover Marks, 1997. In the video they talked about \"the\" curse he put on Spokane.... During his father\'s procession, Jimmy paid the hearse driver a tip to stop by City Hall, opened the door of the hearse and invited Grover\'s spirit to forever live in City Hall....Later, he talked about reversing the curse in a \"double chicken ceremony one extra crispy and one regular.\"...He had quite a sense of humor and always stirring up trouble which kept him constantly in the news...

Hi all..

Treasa, that\'s a lot of rain..It\'s as bad or maybe worse than having sn*w to drive in.

Webbie, Well, that was an interesting video about Spokane\'s controversial Gypsy family Leader, Jimmy Marks...No, I didn\'t attend.....Quite colorful wasn\'t it.

After the police raided their homes many times & seized large sums of money & jewelry, the Marks family sued and it was a on going battle for years.

Morning everyone,

Just popping in to say I\'m back on line after a week without internet..... I will tell you the story about that this evening.....

The country is ready to float away. Floods everywhere...

No stopping the wind and rain....... It is getting to critical stage now, as houses, roads, fields are under water. Drove through a \'river\' on the road yesterday to get to work.

I haven\'t read back any of the posts, and I hate missing so much when I\'m not online.

Stay safe everyone, stay dry, and catch you all later.

Treasa.

Jack-It,s the chase & the enjoyment of the outdoors, not the kill. It\'s good company, beautiful country, jerky & duck sausage. What more could you ask for? We don\'t have a feral cat problem here, to many coyotes.

now there mr mies would it not be better to train the dogs to chase feral cats and you could even shoot the cats that would be more productive and you would be outdoors and doing the things you like better still shoot the d*** heads that let the cats roam

Rain & wind here, sn*w above 2000\'.

Mick-No right or wrong, just different upbringing. It\'s way more about getting out & watching the dogs work than the shooting. I\'d much rather be in the outdoors with the dogs than at this p**king desk.

Still here

Great pic on 5.

Gawd I wish I was 20 years younger, I\'d catch the Holyhead ferry on Friday.

Mr Mies sounds like ya got a good dog there.

Not into shooting and stuff myself anymore, but that\'s my choice.

Reading Stephen King\'s latest epic Under The Dome.

Blimey that bloke can tell a tale.

Howdy pardners

Seems ages since I\'ve had an opportunity to have a peek at the GB.

Looks like I\'ve missed a lot.

Clearing out sheds, waste of time, always end up putting most of it back coz it might come in handy one day.

Wild and windy for the past few days with big floods up north, especially in my beloved Lake District.

Meeting with that p***k woman went much as I expected, the paper\'s rubbish and it\'s all my fault.

Well she can go boil her head.

Told her I can only do my best and if that ain\'t good enough tough spuds.

I\'m too long in the tooth and short time to worry about it.
