Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Interesting. Certainly means you're entitled to have the rest of us support you in your old age.

By the way Brent, any supposed genealogy that predates the Domesday book in 1086 is complete bull$hit. That was the first recorded census of any kind in Europe - there are no records of anyone other than royalty prior to that, so any supposed family connections that predate that are supposition or old wives tales. Even the Domesday book was only prominent people, not common serfs.

That's the BS part we have come to expect.

But give BS a break. He admits to having a problem with numbers.

My Grandmothers mother was Cree her grandfather was Norwegian. We have geneology of the Norwegian connection going back to King Halvdan the Black year 722.

Ah, so you're really no more "aboriginal" than I am. Oh well, makes a good story, eh?

Let's raise a glass to all us European/Third Nation Mutts!

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I'm feeling a little left out of all this, IRish/scotch came here in the 1850's 4 generations back, nothing aborig in that line. Dads mother was born in wales...........

His dad goes back in the states to the mid 1700's......again nothing with abo's.......then to germany......we think......altho spelling of last name is english not the german manner as in Eddie Bauer.......

Not sure about mom's dad, other than no one liked him. Altho may have been 1st generation born here from germans also.........hmmmmmmm......

So does being 2nd gneration born here in the NW count for anything?!?!?!? yeah, thought so....damg it!

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

The whole aboriginal "claims" thing amuses me. Since the human race didn't arise in North America, we are ALL immigrants. Where does one draw the line re: "My ancestors were here before your ancestors so I'm entitled and you aren't"?

Are the French immigrants more entitled than other Euro immigrants? They were here first. Are the English immigrants more entitled than the Russian?

Or does it only count if it was before anyone here could write?

Simple - if you can use it to milk some cash/spiritual sympathy/advantage out of "The Man"...use it!

It's really not that hard.

For example, I claim my relation to Adam to clean out (i.e. - "get rich from") all the Brussel Sprouts in the Midwest with the US Government's blessing...thereby depriving the Cree of their favorite veg. Take that Cree!

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

"Being aboriginal ,I think it is about time they started paying us a bit of rent," BS.
Right.

Yes, this is taking a comic turn with this BS abo thing. My wife is as much abo as BS but she never talks about "her people". I think that she thinks I am "her people". She is too far out on the branch of the family tree to qualify for any Native American benefits. But I did run accross another ciopy of the Oklahoma Sherriffs of 1907 (not 1901) photo and I will get it digitized. It's a classic shot.

Some time today, when I get back from my sushi with Violet run to Ballard, I'm going to casually mention in conversation to my wife "her people" just to see what her reaction is.

I've got it.
"How about you making dinner tonight dear?"
" Fine, what would you like for dinner?"
"Oh, I dunno. How about a dish typical of what your people eat."

I can tell you now I'm going to get macaronni and cheese.
