vkn: Good after this Noon to all
Daviss: permission does not mean that others cant put a human chain around
alt: .. the connection Schwarzkopf & homosexuality ????
Seventies: Well they have permission and they are confined to a certain place OUTSIDE of WP. There is none alt. They protest because they think God is punishing the U.S. for homosexuality.. that's the bottom line. the=their they only target military funerals
alt: and the protest coincides with the funeral ????
alt: oh, okay

vkn: It is impressive. Turnout should be good
alt: lets hope so vkn
vkn: Lots of stuff going on
alt: I certainly wish them much success in this endeavor.... history making!!!!!
Seventies: I do too. I see they changed the site already.
HistoryBuff: Ditto to all.
alt: my main hope is that they do NOT become the type of institution that some of them have accused the 'larger' genealogical community of being ... selective & cliquish
Seventies: I hope not either alt. It would be a disservice to African American researchers and the community.
Daviss: I hope I can stay in....
alt: my sentiments exactly Seventies
Seventies: I hope so too..
vkn: hold tight daviss
Seventies: ISP acting up again Daviss?

Daviss: hello to vkn and HistoryBuff
vkn: u 2 daviss
Daviss: The wind is picking up outside so mabe that has something to do with me getting bumped
Seventies: Could be. Y'all expecting a dust storm or something?
alt: they call the 'wind' Mariah ... is that awful, or what LOL LOL LOL
Daviss: nope but we are expecting believe it or not an Arctic Blast hitting us tomorrow
Seventies: wow! its going to hit what about 80?? LOL LOL
Daviss: its supposed to really drop about 15 or 20 degrees and then be through and out by Mon or Tues nope its colder than that now Seventies lol
Seventies: okay 60... lol
Daviss: I am glad Taylor does not have class on Friday since she bikes or walks to class
alt: from all of the postings I'm seeing on FaceBook & AfriGeneas it appears that 2013 is going to be a "good' year for African American researchers.
Seventies: I think so alt...
Daviss: As just read your "call the wind" comment alt lol lol
Seventies: I've finally caught up with my Washington kin folk... wait isn't Zephyr also a type of wind... lol
alt: wonderful Seventies .. your ever expanding family circle.
Daviss: yes, a gentle breeze
Seventies: Though none carry the surname Washington.. sad.
alt: Washington's 'daughtered out' or they just changed their last name Seventies?
Seventies: none of his sons with his wife had any children. So I guess they 'daughtered out' My great grandfather had 10 children and his brother.. lol still counting... lol okay um ...
alt: I think the day of the large family has gone by the boards.... now it is unusual to see a family of 5-6 children. and most of my friends I grew up with were from family's of 5-6-7 or more children.
Seventies: I agree alt. My BFF has 4 and that's considered a lot. I have two and I think that's a lot. lol Its all about economics Got a meeting.... see y'all
Daviss: forgive me if I go in and out
alt: I reckon Seventies .. course the African American community is being ravished by men/boys having several children with different women ... or is it women having children by several men... sometimes I can't tell the difference.
HistoryBuff: I understand
Daviss: lol no difference with that sad state alt
alt: what's with ths one celebrity ... 11 children with 10 different women.
Daviss: they think its cute I can see one mistake but over and over and over is too much
alt: I know Daviss and it's a shame. if they were equated to being a 'breeder' in the days of slavery they would be offended by the comparison.
alt: of heck, y'all got me up on my soapbox
Daviss: oh alt I agree with you but I doubt if they would care Its like notches on their belt
alt: seems like it Daviss
Daviss: I better head out, still having trouble
alt: okay laters
