I need to ask a shameful question for which I will likely be endlessly harangued and made the punchline of many jokes: Will anyone please go see the new Muppet movie with me?

In a recent reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) a 7 year old boy took questions from internet readers with the help of his dad.

When asked the meaning of life: "to love everybody and eat good food"
Why are people unhappy: "because they don't look at good."
Why do people get so mad at each other: "because they don't like the same things"

I will now attempt to take this advice to heart.
Well he's talking through me but he is very curious about reddit. I've been explaining it to him for 20 minutes now and told him what an AMA is. So if...

Tagline
Butterflies, ink and gin.
Introduction
Originally from Scranton PA, I have been calling Tampa home since 1997. I study and breed Florida native butterflies for a museum and when I have a few spare minutes I can be found at various historical reenactments performing arts that are often considered dead.

I am currently collecting Gilpins and Gilpin family genealogy history and I am interested in catching up with any Gilpin near or far. I am especially interested in the genealogy of the Gilpin family that originated in Killyman parish in Northern Ireland and emigrated to northeast Pennsylvania in the area near Sterling Township.
