I have threatened you with a little of my family history in the past. With the anniversary of the Mayflower’s landing in America, I was reminded of those threats.
I had several distant family members on board that little, uncomfortable, sailing ship.
My family members were not happy in England for various reasons and decided an unknown fate on the sea was better than the known one they faced in England.
I am related to many of the royal families in Europe due to the intermarrying that went on for so many centuries there. I suppose at the time it seemed like a good idea. New scientific knowledge now has shown us that perhaps it was not.
As with the Egyptians and other groups around the world who married their close relatives, physical and mental issues do arise from these practices. I won’t go into detail here as it tends to be embarrassing.
To see some of my family history in detail regarding the Mayflower, go to my Facebook page at R.C. Hand. Please take some time and listen to the audio interview of me there with firstname.lastname@example.org from England. It is fun and interesting. The link is there on my page.
I am still looking for more pod casters who will interview me about my novels and travels.
When you think you have seen it all, just look at these crazy lock down times and be assured that more wild and crazy times are just around the corner.
I am prepared and ready for the worst. It will be interesting and educational, to say the least.
While you are waiting, you might want to read the biography of Mao Tse-tung and about The Cultural Revolution in China just for a look at our possible future.
Thanks for coming here to read my stories and stay well.
I still have a few travel stories to put up from the Stans. They will be coming shortly.
