: : Welllllll,
: : I find it very interesting that we go from a posting by my ancestor Cpl. MacWilliam to speaking of scrapple. As one who has made scrapple, it is not a frightening thing. I believe the sight of that savage Red Leaf would be much more frightening than scrapple or haggis (which I enjoy on St. Andrew's Day and also on Robert Burns Day). As for head cheese, let's not go there! ooooppppps.....here come the nephew and niece and they want to try some scrapple, just watch out for the hog hair, course that's what holds it all together!!
: : Pax Aye!
: : Dr. Uncle Mark
: Drunkle Mark ...
: Yep! That's the way of it here. One never knows what direction an innocent thought might lead others in!!
: All I can add is ... GO RANGERS! Well, Ok, the only place they're going is home (for the third year in a row!), but ... I can dream!
: New York ... home for Lord Howe in the Revolution. Actually, the war may have been won there, thanks to his New York mistress! Kept him in bed instead of up the Hudson Valley to Saratoga where he should have been!
Right Rich, and there is some speculation that he secretly sympathized with the American Colonials. Back in England he was very outspoken about the American side and trying to get others to see it, and it was rather surprising that the king would send HIM to put down the rebellion with his pro-American sentiments.
He constantly held back from delivering a decisive blow when he could have. One patriot remarked "He is either a bad general, or he is our friend"
(and this thread takes yet ANOTHER turn!!!!)
