It is funny how we are ok with a chicken sitting on a beer can in the gas grill, but to a pig on a rotisserie bothers us. :D

very few people would have been able to come up with this lady's nation of origin, as you did, claire!:) latvia is a tiny country, about the size of new jersey, with a population of only about two million people. you made that lady's day for sure, claire, by your recognition. and today you made mine....
I only came up with it because Mom joined a book club when I was around 10 years old. Why, I don't know, because she really isn't much of a reader. One book was Leave Your Tears in Moscow, a memoir of an American woman who went to visit her roots and wound up in a prison camp in Siberia. That's how I learned about Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. For some reason, I can never remember Estonia. Coming up with Latvia was just lucky guess. But the woman always thought fondly of me because I actually knew her country existed at one time (and does again! Yay!)

I'm a mix but I think it comes with being Filipino since the Philippines has been occupied quite a bit.

Mom's side: Filipino, Chinese, Irish-American
Dad's side: Filipino, Spanish (not quite sure what else is mixed in there)

A lot of people aren't sure what I am when they first meet me. I've been confused for Mexican, Spanish, American Indian/Eskimo. The Irish-American kicks in cause I'm lighter and taller than most Filipinos ;)

What a pair of silly buggers. That's what my Scottish MIL would have said.

I once saw Billy Connolly live, in Montreal. OMG, that man is funny. My ex had a whole bunch of his albums.

In my next life I'd like to be born a Tibetan. Politics aside, I like their simple way of existence.

I have always had an interest in the simple life but, I must confess I have been a failure at it.

I like this quote that was attributed to Diogenes:" poverty is the only thing money can't buy."
