By Walt Hickey My book, You Are What You Watch, makes a great gift for the movie fan, data geek and more, and it’s 25 percent off right now and shipping is free with the code CYBER23 on the Hachette website. That’s a really great deal and probably one of the best we’re going to see to score the book.
Unnamed Filthy Steamship Loaded Up With The Irish Society - Now that's a society I would join. My grandparents, Patrick Hickey and Annie O'Conner were from County Clare near Tullassa. While they lived just several miles apart in Ireland, they went to different parishes so didn't meet until they both had arrived Lowell, MA, in about the year 1900.
Gosh, of my grandparents, only one was reared by people who descended from those stalwart first immigrants that settled Massachusetts Bay Colony. The others were, indeed, aboard various "Unnamed Filthy Steamships Loaded Up With the Irish" and other motley Europeans. So... I s'pose I *could* apply to the Mayflower Society, but why would I? Frankly, my various other European ancestors had a much more interesting history and weren't slave owners. :D
