well i guess that i am a wasp on my dads side.
his ancestors got run out of scotland to make room for sheep.
we are presbyterians
as far as being anglo saxon who knows and who cares.
not rich by any means.
i am sure this might get me in some trouble but here goes-

shut down the still ferguss!!!!! the limeys are coming!!!!!
