      Indeed it might BP. Perhaps too well infact. LOL

      On my good days yes. Magnoliazz, and on somedays I am just a little SOB, but I try my best, and my best is often far beyond what I thought I was capable of. Glad you enjoy my dark humorous sides...they are for the entertainment of all. Bow for the audience, they are your feet my jester like sons and daughters. Lovers and Friends. Blake4d

      You are a very decent and mature person. Hopefully with Obama getting elected as president, America has turned a corner. When I see Obama or Oprah, I don't see black or white, I just see a human being, the same as anyone.

      Well very few places are as old in America as Louisville Kentucky, and not everyone inmy family is that racist. But the ones that are are very poor, with little or no education, in jobs that they will likely die in, and not a chance to change their posiiton or status. I may not respect how they treat me or other people, but why would I add to it by acting as if they don't deserve some respect. I will not be dying in a coal mine with black lungs. They will. They are very hard workintg earthy people. Theyir perspective is that I am spoiled, plus I have white, haitian, and native american blood. It is the mixing of the black and red that offends them not the white with either of the other two. See if you have no educaion, and no status, to bring up a child in their area with even lower breeding. I wouldn;t be able to get a job, or anything, native americans cant joing a union . They are not American citizens, yoknow that right? It is much more complicated than perhaps you rezlize. Luckily my mom and I left and I don't live by those rules...

      Yes, you have a point. I would not like one of my family members writing their version of my experiences.

      Although, if they call you a "mud person" maybe they should get what they deserve. I can't believe they are still back in the dark ages. It is so cruel. Still, I appreciate your respect for their privacy.

      I was always under the impression that many of the people of Appalachia were of mixed decent with the Native American tribes who once lived there. Almost all the earliest Americans in that area were male and they often took Indian wives. And...if not for those native American women, I doubt those men would have survived.

      Finally history is honoring some of those women, but it has been a very long time coming.

      In this area of Wisconsin, no one thinks anything if a white marries a Native American. Probably because there are so many Native Americans around. Black men/ white women that is pretty much still a taboo, but white man/black women, that's ok! LOL! I would like to think that in America, its not who you are it is what you are that matters. That's what made our country great in my opinion, we give people a chance.

      And...it is always the people of mixed heritage who are the most intelligent. You need an influx of new blood in the gene pool every now and then. That's why the Amish are becoming more backward, they only marry within their group.

      Oh well, I will just have to go back and read some of your earlier hubs, they look interesting too. You know sooo much about so many things!

      Maybe, you gotta understand most of them are in Kentucky and we never see or talk to each other. Mostly due to their views on me being a mud person (not just white) they are very racist about it. And for the most part my family I have to respect their right not to have such things publicized, most are nazarines, snake handler Christians. Such events would be considered devil worship, and could jeapordize their lives in the Appliachian mining indusstry the union they work for. So maybe, its not completely my call. And i figure your family is owed respect on the spiritual privacy if anyone is. Rightt?

      I figured you were either a Libra or a Gemini! Gemini explains your super intelligence.

      As for sleep..I never sleep well. LOL...now after what you told me about the Anubis, I worry that I will wake up and see it standing in the corner of my bedroom. That has happened more than once, too. Of course, I figured it just had to be my imagination ...right?

      There is a very thin line between real/unreal.

      Are you going to write a hub about some of the experiences your family has had?

      This is as bad as being a little kid and having your big brother scare you with spooky stories! LOL...why are we sooo hooked on being scared? Its a kind of addiction you know!

      Wow Billy, Guided by voices rocks. You would jibe with my friend Troy big time I bet. If you also like Chrome, then you are a Stormtrooper of the highest degree. Thanx for checking my hubs. Blake4d

      Well I'll tell ya Magnoliazz since you asked. 99% of the world thinks pretty well of me if not highly, and we have a lot of fun. I am a Gemini, so communication is my superpower. But man, 1% of the world not only hates me instantly upon meeting me. They usually end up being some kind of mortal enemy that I have to contend with - willingly or unwillingly.

      The net is nice in that way, I can be a bit detatched and all the more confortable. I told ya I'd give you a lighter hub today to make up fior the darkside yesterday. Sleep well...? LOL

      Thanx Ivorwen. Don't know if we've met before, I appreciate the comment. When 6 hits the mark, it can make a whole roon of casual listeners giggle in unison.

      Tonight I could really use one of those pills.

      #6 would be fun to try out sometime. I know a few people who would get a good laugh out of it. Thanks for the smiles.

      Funny rejoinders, Blake.

      I used to use this retort when someone said, "I've missed you." I responded, "Bad aim?" But I stopped when I realized the other person was just being sincere and I was being sarcastic.
