Webbie, thanks for all the interesting cleeks. Just showed Mr A the last one of John Martyn. Impressing voice.

Have a nice start into the new week all.

SSSnnnnooo****www???? Mr. Mies, you dare to tell us about that white stuff!!! ...okay, as long as you keep it for yourself. Happy shoveling.

I \'shoveled\' another white stuff here today. Made a pizza for dinner and my box of flour for the dough fell down and the flour was spreading over the kitchen. Later, Robert laughed about the yeast dough as it was like rubber straps when I tried to roll it out on the baking sheet. As usually he grabbed some of the raw dough to eat but then started to throw tiny balls of it to my tiled backsplash where they stuck to. He\'s just a child yet. But we all know that men will always be children, don\'t we girls? hehehehe

Sn*w, P*nking Sn*w. Only 1 1/2\" but I had to shovel it. I don\'t have to work, but Caleb has a job now so I took him to work. He\'s been working at our local Wal-Mart for the last week. He\'s been cleaning the fish tanks & re-stacking bags of dog food. It\'s about time & good experience for him. Plus it\'s inside, a good thing today.

Pat-Mike has found common relatives of ours also, so I guess that makes us Cuz\'s too.

Holy Mackerel, good pic on CAM 5, Dee Langevin, but there\'s not enough money in the world to get me on a roller coaster like that one.



That was a nice one you had on there yesterday, too, Webbie. That fountain is probably the most photographed spot in Savannah, which is full of photogenic places.

Bye! I\'m really going, now.

Good cleek, Webbie about the storyteller. I had to lsten twice to catch all the words behind the accent, but I will have to find out more about him.

Will you tell us the pronunciation of the Irish word for storyteller, \"Seanachie\" I think.

The last bit is "queen" without the "n".
"He is a bit of a shannockquee" would do as well.

Thanks, Mies, for adding the juicy parts of Peregrine\'s story. You never read great stuff like that in the history books. You have to dig it up yourself, and it\'s good to share it with other decendents who will enjoy knowing something colorful about their own people who went before.

Sunny and reasonably warm here at the moment, but storms are predicted for this afternoon. I have work to do and errands to run, Y\'all be good.

Mike CA, did you get any photos on the zepelin flight? That sounds like fun.

Mr. Mies, love your interesting Peregrine. I think the naughty ones and the whackos in family histories are the most interesting of them all to know about, a bunch of law-abiding, dull, upright robots isn\'t any fun at all to research. Finding out about a little bit of creative deviltry is great.

That\'s why Mike CA and I are \"Cousins\", we have a rogue Irishman named McCall in both of our family histories, by dates and locations could have been one and the same, who did my great-grandmother wrong, and moved on to check out the ladies in Ohio, I think it was, and begot Mike CA\'s line. Maybe true, maybe not. Fun to think it is, though.

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.

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...
