I'm a mutt as well...

Mother- Born and raised in Seville, Spain.  She insists she's full-blooded, and for the most part it's hard to tell.  Everyone in her family is olive-skinned with dark hair, save for my cousin who is whiter than today's newspaper job listings with red hair.  I do have some suspicion... 

Father- Met my mother while stationed in Spain.  Part German and Polish, but also descended from Hungarian gypsies, as my great-grandmother was one.

Most of my grandfather's stories about his family began with "They got drunk and...".

 BounceGiggle TeddyR

My mom's Dad told me once that he nearly shot General Jan Smuts during the 1922 Rebellion in South Africa.  TeddyR

On my dad's side, there is a story about some ancestors in Scotland who ran afoul of the church for selling potatoes to the Irish Catholics. According to the story, when the local church leaders came to put a stop to this, the Campbells reacted by tossing them into a pile of manure. Needless to say, the family's denomination changed for a while. The story came to me verbally, but I've since seen it in a family history compiled in the 1920s, which was still a few generations after the fact. I don't know how accurate it is, but it doesn't surprise me.

My wife tells me that her mother's family has the distinction of settling on a nice patch of land in Southern Ontario many years ago....after driving the Indians off it with pitchforks. Lookingup A piece of that land has been at the centre of some unrest in the last few years. I'm sure Newt knows what I'm talking about.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
