Thesaurus.com now lists ‘obstructionist’ as right-winger.
Dictionary.com hasn’t gone completely round the bend yet. YET.
I did FTDNA’s Family Finder a few weeks ago. The results were clear and they matched me with a 2nd cousin!
So, after talking with Boudicca a bit I decided to try Ancestry’s DNA test. They’ve a huge database of both documents and people. It works essentially the same way; after the test they show you genetic makeup and familial matches.
Not really the same thing and the nearest they matched me with? A sixth cousin.
The kicker – and I haven’t even shown Mike his yet – but it’s wrong. His mother was Danish and Irish, straight down the line. His father Russian Slav. I just don’t see the Irish here at all.
Don’t know what to think, really.
Welcome to the old theme. Thanks to a heads-up from Dave yesterday I (he) discovered that comments were gone. Like a bad magic act disappeared ‘em. So… what’s old is new again.
Yep, I’ve been absent… my head is up my own ass much too regularly to be healthy.
Sunset one evening. The blue bit reminded me of a child who just doesn’t want to go to bed…
The soursop tree is burdened -really good word for it- with these huge fruit. Already four have fallen and been consumed by bugs… and of course one stubby dog. Guess I won’t bathe her til the you-know-what passes…
I helped Mike put up a 7×7 garden shed in the back yesterday and today. He did most of the work, of course, but I can fetch screws with the best of ‘em!
The afternoon rain caught us yesterday and when we went out to finish up this morning hoards of mosquitoes launched themselves at us! Ugh.Thus the fan… which didn’t work.
Goodbye, Green House! I don’t have to look at you anymore… unless I look around the shed…
Done! It looks small, but there’s a lot of good storage space inside.
Exciting stuff, right? Well, it’s all I’ve got right now…
So, this is what FTDNA’s Family Finder does! And surprise! I’m not 100% European!
Norway is my birth father.
Interesting stuff! I’m uploading to GEDmatch, per Boudicca’s advice.
