Wow. That reaction was harsh from all of ya. I was truly moved by Pauls family history.






















Which was nice, I was kinda bound up. I needed to wipe twice for that one.

Happy Trafalgar Day. 200 years ago today Lord Horatio Nelson won a resounding victory, which coincidently was the name of his flagship. Not bad for a one armed midget. There's hope for you yet Yeager.

(I admit it, I'm a naval history geek.)

Trafalgar square, nice place to visit. Very cool sculpture.

Pauly, isn't your family tree as straight as a broom stick?

So, for whatever it's worth, looks like the Sox are signing John Farrell to be the new manager, sending Mike Aviles to Toronto. Which is confusing, because I thought Toronto wanted some kind of compensation.

It was tough getting caught up on this thread with all the tears in my eyes from Paulie's gentle and caring post. WTF? Talk about losing the masshole card. I hope you find it again when you return from England.

No telling what other interesting facts will be discovered. Like while your grandfather was in the trenches, he actually found that he had a knack for knitting doilies. (Expect 5 pages of exotic doily patterns to follow).
And while in Ireland, you'll find that you came from the only family in the county that were Quakers, and all they ate was Quaker Oats.

Please be sure to take a picture of your ancestors mansion in the ground. Damn. That started another tear. I....gotta.....go........cry. Can we all get together for a group hug?

Was there a thread for U4 or did you give up after U3?
