    Thanks Rooted. They say that there is always a silver lining to something. Had I not broken those ribs... thanks to Storm Ciara, I just would not have had the time to be here. I see U are on the Gulf cost... I remember my endless trips to Boca Raton (east coast)  for IBM and visits to Toms Hut.... no better Barbecue spare Ribs anywhere on the planet !!! I also managed to get myself badly burned on Clearwater beach.... not used to the hot sun you guys enjoy there ! Memories... memories.... <Smile>.

    I can imagine, you being from Ireland this Florida sun will get to you.

    One of my grandfathers was from Ireland, he had fair skin and red hair which was passed along through the family including my mom and one of my brothers. They get sunburned easily as well.

    My Irish grandfather was married to a Native American and I'm an odd mix of that, I have blonde hair with olive skin. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Speaking of variety,  thanks to Ancestry.com, I now know I am Greek, Spanish, Lithuanian and Italian... Now wonder I'm always at war with myself....
