  1. Just something in the bushes outside my office at work.
  2. I've said to kids that weren't listening to their moms, "Kid, don't make her get out the duct tape."
  3. I find it interesting, finding who went where when. Then trying to figure out why. For example, some of my kin went from VA to the Carolinas in the late 1770s, then back to the same county in VA in the 1780s. Early version of draft dodgers, maybe? Then in the 1820s some of their kids moved to KY. My dad was born there in 1921. I never found out how Dad met Mom, who was from Carbon County PA. He also never mentioned why he decided to stay in CA after he got out of the Corps in 1947 rather than going back to KY or PA.
  4. If I'm talking about myself I only use "ancestor" when talking about direct lineage. But, talking about society, I will say "Our ancestors weren't stupid." or "Our ancestors were pretty smart, look at what they were able to build and how long it has lasted."
  5. Some of my Dad's people came over the 2nd or 3rd boat after the Mayflower. Some in the early 1720s. Nothing special in my ancestry other than one Great Grandfather survived Camp Douglas, and a Great Uncle was killed by a racoon while out hunting said racoon. Had it treed, it jumped onto a dead branch which broke, hit him in the head. DRT.
  6. "For men of understanding do not say that the sword is to blame for murder, nor wine for drunkenness, nor strength for outrage, nor courage for foolhardiness, but they lay the blame on those who make an improper use of the gifts which have been bestowed upon them by God, and punish them accordingly. " St. John Chrysostom, On The Priesthood (Book III)
  7. Exactly. Plus the owner would be on the hook for the cost of clean up and like a not face the family suing him.
  8. The batter looks to be in the uniform for FL State Seminoles.
  9. The top of the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt.
