Re: What is wrong with this picture?

1796 for the bride, eh? who then gives birth 70+ years earlier?

You caught the big one I was waiting for.

From better resources:

Timothy Clarke was born in 1657 (and not 1675). He married Sarah Richardson in 1678. [more]

What is wrong with this picture?

I found this in a book about the Clark family. I wonder how many will see the obvious problems?

Re: Not Quite a Parent Problem

First, I hope he's feeling better. I had an infected shoulder a few years ago, and I was miserable.

And a couple of years ago I landed in the hospital for a short stay the week before Christmas, and that was no fun either.

Re: Some people. . .

I've just arrived at a comment that says, "please call CPS and inform them that you are an unfit mother."

Some people. . .

Once in a while I read a Boston.com column called "Love Letters". A lot of the fun comes from reading the comments. There are a lot of regulars there, and they like to kid each other.

Don't any of these protesters have jobs, or classes to go to? Must be nice living off family money to be able to go march around the street with signs.
