ProfDru: Of course, I'm excited about the show.

bbenn: Interesting discussion on linkedin concerning your topic:} So am I:}

ProfDru: I looked at Linkedin, but didn't see discussion. I looked on your page

bbenn: I will forward some of the comments to you

ProfDru: All I saw in your email is someone inquiring about researching in New York.

bbenn: I may mention in the intro a creative genealogy strategy one of my friends used for her wedding. She had all of the elders send in their wedding photos and used them as center peices on each table. Some of the photos were in the late 1800's.

alt: hello bbenn & ProfDru.. how are you ladies doing today?

ProfDru: bernice, I see the discussion now.

bbenn: Hello alt

ProfDru: hello alt bernice, that was a wonderful wedding decoration idea.

bbenn: How did you like the newspaper story about Wilmenna Rhodes Kelly starting the new DAR chapter in New York?

alt: sure is an excellent idea bbenn

bbenn: Dru, the discussions were wonderful!

alt: DAR .... I liked the article bbenn & you saw my response on Facebook, right?

bbenn: alt, yes and I hope that others also saw the article. I sent her a congratulatory message on yesterday. You may recall that she was a guest on my show..

ProfDru: I will respond to the discussion--I don't use Linked In that much, but should begin using it more and cut back on Facebook. I need to update my blogs today also. Gotta run. See you tonight.

alt: I do remember that show & we touched on Lineage Society's, their value and significance when I was your guest.

bbenn: That's right. I need to do an entire show on that topic. How was your 4th?

alt: it is an area that "WE" folk of color should look into. we had a very nice 4th, how about you? Hello Ms Selma.. how goes it?

Selma: Good afternoon bbenn and alt.. Hot enough for ya

bbenn: Other than watch my granddaughter walk in the neighborhood parade, I did absolutely nothing. Hello Selma...too hot!

alt: sure is Selma.. I'm staying indoors until my Dr.'s appt @ 3:30 this PM

bbenn: We continue to have these power surges.

Selma: I don't blame you alt.

alt: You're in Silver Spring, right bbenn?

bbenn: right

Selma: I was just about to ask you bbenn how you are doing since you are in a seriously affected area

bbenn: We have power for now and a new storm is suppose to blow in tonight.

Selma: Does AY have power yet? Afternoon Daviss

bbenn: I don't know.

alt: I just got off the phone with my cousin in Silver Spring before I came to Chat... he lives in that Senior's complex called Leisure World.

Selma: Oh I know where that is alt

alt: Hello Daviss

Daviss: Hi bbenn and alt!

alt: pkay Selma. it is a really nice area

bbenn: Leisure World is probably okay. The storm did knock down several trees in the Leisure World area.

alt: yes, he said they didn't have any problems bbenn.

Selma: My son lives not to far from Leisure World..they lost power Friday night..but they got it back on Sunday afternoon

alt: I thought we had it bad here in Ohio, but you folks on the east coast really took a hit!!!!

bbenn: I drove all over the area on Saturday looking for coffee and was hoping to find some in the Leisure World community. Everything was closed then but, I know that they were all taken care of by the management company.

Daviss: I am just reading a tad back..another storm coming thru

bbenn: That's what we are hearing here...

Daviss: its been rather hot here but yesterday for some strange reason we were down to 81 yesterday

Selma: Giving you a break before it jumps up to 114

bbenn: Lucky you!

alt: down to 81 lol lol

Daviss: yes it was the coolest ever on this day they said on the news

alt: hey Selma, but that is a "DRY HEAT" in AZ, so they say LOL ..... I say 114 is hor, dry or not LOL

Daviss: It rained early in the day in cities and even caused flooding

alt: hor=hot

bbenn: Got to run....stay cool everybody.

Daviss: I saw some folks that had to be rescued in their cars and then some in a rowboat...crazy

alt: Daviss, is it that y'all get flash floods because the ground is so hard that it doesn't absorb the rain water well, so it just runs off on the surface causing floods?

Daviss: I image in some areas alt but some of that rain was flash flooding

alt: okay, I see Daviss

Daviss: flash flooding comes from off the mtns

alt: ah so

Daviss: How was your fourth

Selma: Something tells me we are in for a H*^ll of a summer

alt: mine was relatively quiet until the fireworks last night. our neighbors on both sides of us had cookouts, so we had plenty of food without cooking anything LOL LOL

vkn: Well Selma and all all as we know people doing the query only give partial of what they know. Did find an older Nick #1 born about 1840

Daviss: thats good vkn

alt: If I remember correctly that person's surname is one of those mixed race families that lays claim to NEVER have been enslaved in the America's.

Selma: I don't think The person gave a family surname alt

alt: it was hidden in the signature Selma

Daviss: break it down then alt lol

alt: Selma, what I don't get is that these folk overlook the fact those black men/white women situations involve black men who are enslaved, or they were formerly enslaved. aren't they a part of their 'family' too?

Selma: Apparently not

vkn: any lights for Angela
