I traced my ancestry back to the rift valley in Africa about 2.5 million years.

Re: Your Family History

Most people that lived back then, and led a hard life out in the open, would probably not be considered beautiful people by today's standards. Viking age women probably looked like Bjorn Borg in drag.

Re: Your Family History

Bunch of abusive drunks right up both sides, not much reading to be done there. I don't drink much, but I write.
I also prefer to bestow my family with hugs rather than bruises.
