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.

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?

Watching Hoarders in the middle of last night when I could not sleep led to a cleaning spree when I got home today. My bedroom is spotless.

Unless you routinely find mummified animals when you clean, I think you're ok.

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.
