I, on the other hand, have seemed to hit a brick wall with my genealogical research on my father's side of the family...they ain't talkin'. Looks like I'll have to dig out the ol' jumper cables on a couple of my aunts. And nobody seems to know when or where my parents were married (could what everybody's been calling all my life be true? )

Yes, Meanderer, I am a fan of GH or The Beatlers for that matter. I have Iheart radio on my computer at work and I set up multiple stations, including a GH station, an Elvis station, and so on. I'm one of those who can listen to the same song over and over. I'm like that with movies and tv shows as well.
By the way, I went to the Renaissance Festival yesterday. I didn't post it on here because I wasn't sure if we were going; our son had to finish his homework. I do know we are going this coming Sunday for sure as that is the last day and things are usually marked down, much to my wife's delight. So Puti, my wife has said she definitely wants to go this coming Sunday, so there's the plan.
We did have a great time. Lots of food, entertainment, and interesting people. There were even two "Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow" characters. They were pretty good. At one point there was a Johnny Depp-Off in front of one of the restroom areas. And LOTS of attractive women were to be seen in all sizes and colors dressed up in different historical period costumes. Of course I was with MY attractive woman, who kept hitting me after my many comments about the ladies...and some of the guys. I didn't go to the back area where the elephant rides were located; people usually try to climb on me for a ride and it takes about two or so laps around the ride area before people realize that I'm not an elephant (my "trunk" is too short). At least I made some non-refundable coinage. I also picked up on a boot knife to carry in my backpack...just in case.
Puti, sorry I didn't post that we were going yesterday, but now you know we are supposed to go next Sunday.

It just took me a while to get back to this page.

Regarding the Jack Sparrow thing, there was once a Star Wars storm trooper wearing a kilt. Even though it is supposed to be the Renaissance, people come dressed up in the costumes of many periods, from the Dark Ages through Victorian. I went dressed up as a modern hairy fat guy wearing period jeans and t-shirt, though the underwear I was wearing smelled pretty medieval.

Ok being were "old Timers" here I was wondering with the holidays here and well years slipping by so fast, how many of you sit back and look at all that has happened in your life. What you have done, where you have been, and what lies a head. Some days I sit here looking back and say WOW. so many parts of my life have so many up and downs. but Here I sit on a board I have been on since 2004 and think of all the wonderful friends I have made, we may have never met but feel close in so many ways. No matter what has happen to us no one ever judges. we can come here and vent, post, unwind and just know that there are others out there that care. The paranormal and questions of it, bought us together and sometimes I wonder if our ansestors (ok cant spell) and spirits bought us all together in their own ways. whatever did Im so happy we have found eachother.
I just want to say thanks for being there , and I hope that you all have a Wonerful Holiday season...

This is my favorite time of year. Though I'm an atheist, how can anyone not enjoy and appreciate the spirit and meaning of the Christmas season. It always takes me back to past Christmases and the position in life I was in at the time. And I always look back on what has propelled my life in the direction it has taken, whether it be poverty, relocation, family, football injuries, or love, to name but a few factors. This past weekend makes me aware that things have taken a wonderful route to this point in my life. I took my wife and youngest son on a ghost tour of Galveston, Texas, and , among other hobbies and interests, it made me realize how much my wife and I have in common even if it didn't start out that way twenty-one years ago. And then when I take my interest in the paranormal and see that it has led me to others across the country with similar interest, it's just gratifying that I can connected with those of you here that have not necessarily the exact same veiw or belief in the after-life as I, but at least have a friendly and open-minded consideration for other views and are open to discuss them even in a joking manner, the latter being important to me since inject humor into almost everything I do. Yes, during "that", too, much to my wife's annoyance. Anyway, with the exception of meanderer, it is such a pleasure to chat with all of you and get your insights into the paranormal. Okay, maybe including meanderer, but he has to sit on the other side of the country; I hate it when he hits on me.
