Lately, I have been spending my time working on my family tree and as most of you may know the well dries up from time to time.

The lady informed me I have an open invitation to visit her. Exciting!

Tit for Tat a phrase derived from a 1556 English term “Tip for Tap”, a phrase used to describe “blow for blow” the 1935 movie “Tit for Tat” staring Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Mae Busch demonstrates this to a Tee.

The Twitter feeds have been exploding since Congressman John Lewis whom most of know as an iconic leader in Civil Right Movements stated that the President-Elect is not a legitimate President. This is a day where we are supposed to be celebrating Martin Luther King Jr march for Freedom for all, putting a stop of hanging, torturing, segregation, burning, bulling and plain pissing on a person rights cause of their skin color.
