    Since a few have asked what my login name means, here ya go. Back in 1765 two brothers traveled from Scotland to what would one day be the US of A. Names were Peter and Blank. Blank was a common name back then it seems. Anyway move forward 13 generations and you have me. Same last name! Wow. So I chose to honor the first of my USA family by adding "and son" to his name. I'm the "son." By the time I realized that son should have been "sons" Yahoo had already sealed the deal. SO I am the great-great-great-great-great-great . . . 13 times grandson of the original Blank. Now ya know. Oh, I do have three wonderful daughters but little girls have a habit of growing up and getting new last names.
