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. I recently located a second cousin residing in Spring, Texas whom gave some wonderful treasures that I never knew existed. Talk about excitement. I also found a distant cousin living in Piedras Negras that emailed me some photos that belong to her Mother’s cousin that lives in Monclova, Mexico. The lady informed me I have an open invitation to visit her. Exciting!
When it comes to the research, we find records, hopefully some photos that get placed on hard drives or flash drives perhaps in a specific folder or spread across different directories that just might become hard to find if we forgot which folder we put it in. The stack of printed paper that is scattered across our desks. I started to think that there has to be away to organize the information for faster access that is located on our personal computers.

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. Our friend, Gary Loggins could possibly give a better description of this movie than I.
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. Instead, we get Tit for Tat tweet storms that is not solving anything.
When will we as a society learn from our past mistakes? “you punch me in the eye, I will punch you in the groin.” This appears to be the main stream these days. Kind of makes one fear the “Finger on the button”.
Sometimes, this scribe forgets that we are dealing with a person that retaliates anyone that does not agree with him and get inline like good little sheep should. After all, sheep are very easy to silence than larger animals.
