I emigrated to Baltimore from Birmingham, England as a kid. I loved Baltimore...still do.  I can't believe what I'm watching on the telly..what triggered this idiocy was barbaric enough, why are these bozos so intent on soiling their own nest? And why are the local politicians LETTING THEM? Did the IQ of the City seems to have dropped 100 points since my last visit?  Get the parents to put their punks to bed, and start acting like Baltimoreans..not BaltiMORANS! I was proud to live in Baltimore..this lot are an embarrassment to their City and the State.

Actually it DOES make me homesick, LOL. I don't even know if Aston Hall has been preserved. Certainly hope so.

So how does one get on the San Antonio team either as a researcher, writer, or shovelbum?

I understand they've discovered near an artifact near the Alamo which bears my ancestor's Assay Mark on it..should look like a small Anchor..which locates it's production to the Birmingham Assay Office.

Apologies, but as a historic archaeologist who used to work in Washington D.C....this struck me as so funny and ACCURATE,  it might be seen as reality, and end up in many textbooks!  Hope it received wide distribution to those on Capital Hill!  Many thanks to those at The Onion.  You always make my day.

Gee, Do You Really Wanna Know?
Introduction
Professional Forensic and Medical Anthropologist.  Historical Archaeologist and Historian..European and Colonial North America (love those Mountain Men!)  Archival addict. Science and technical writer. Lobbyist when necessary. Enjoy tracking the Futures market. Love Statistics. Love learning new things. Love to travel. Love my family.

Currently researching the hypothalamus, a tiny organ (not the Wurlitzer kind) which regulates most everything in the human body, and when slightly damaged, causes an amazing array of physiological, physical and behavioral problems.  So why are there so few medical researchers interested in this magical, majestic, yet miniature organ in the brain. Why do psychotropic meds drain patients of D3? Do you think dark matter could be a clump of positrons? Why do genetic flippers seem to be triggered randomly, 'cos doesn't make sense.  Well, if you're still reading this, I think you're quite brave. Kudos! 

Prefer my History NEAT, not into making it pretty for popular consumption. True, there's a lot of history we want to forget, but if want to continue as a species, we must never forget the rotten bits ESPECIALLY NOW. Happily, there are more good bits than bad.  

Bad habits - I read too many journals, searching for answers to questions no one cares about,  accept people as they are, and offer help when asked, and I'm way too curious about everything. And I read REAL books, because I like the sensation and feeling of accomplishment, when I turn a page...and I think video games are boring.  Except Tetris.

Gave up on television, except if it's tuned to Formula 1 racing, the Baltimore Orioles, or the Baltimore Ravens...or something on the History or Science Channels.  

Love to fly, love to sail, love trains, love Tall Ships.  Love the scent of soil at dawn, the spray of the ocean, and cold winter nights when you can actually see the night sky!  Always looking for old maps, and discovering small, out-of-the-way museums. 

If you're really nosey and will bust if you don't know my birthday..it's still once a year.

I wasn't born here, but I did become a citizen. I TOOK A CLASS! I TOOK AN EXAM! I WENT TO A CEREMONY AND WAS LEGALLY SWORN IN AS A CITIZEN WITH LOTS OF OTHER PEOPLE! WE DID EVERYTHING LEGALLY!  No, it wasn't fun or easy, BUT AT THE TIME, I WAS PROUD TO DO IT.  

Now, I'm not quite sure why I bothered.

Favorite color is red, not fond of pink, blue or pastels. 

What's my Sign? I never understand why people ask me this. It's red and round, and says ALTO.  My other sign hangs on my front door, and says "No Solicitors."  

Back to reading a BOOK.  Told ya I was boring.
