Finally! We Have a Date for Lucifer Season 5-B!!

March 30, 2021

Yay!  Netflix has finally released a drop date for Lucifer Season 5-B.  (Another show I’ve watched every ep of, many of which multiple times.) According to the official Lucifer account post on Twitter, and per D.B. Woodside, we’ll finally see on May 28th what happens seconds after Season 5-A ended.  (I won’t say specifically in case anyone was waiting to watch all 16 episodes of 5-A and 5-B in a…


Oak Island – Will They or Won’t They?

March 27, 2021

History’s The Curse of Oak Island is one show I keep up with, week after week.  Like everyone else, I keep waiting for them to find a major treasure.  I also watch it for the tech they use to find and check out their discoveries. Something I find ironic, though, is how many treasures have been found accidentally over the centuries, all over the world, yet Oak Island keeps hiding…


Are You Related to a Missing Buffalo Soldier?

March 24, 2021

The 92nd Infantry Division aka “Buffalo Soldiers,” the only African American infantry unit to operate in Europe during World War II, still has 53 men missing/unaccounted for since the war.  The DPAA (Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency) would like help identifying them, if possible. In 2014, they created the 92 Infantry Project, but were only able to identify 3 of the men at that time.  The main issue is having reference…

The Euro right now is running anywhere from 10-20% stronger, so there’s another chunk of profit eaten up I wasn’t expecting.  (Probably should have – I had read someplace…

The Six (Cousin) Wives of Henry VIII

The Six (Cousin) Wives Of Henry VIII
March 10, 2021

A while back, I was researching my father’s line and tentatively discovered one of his ancestors is a “gateway” ancestor: a person with proven Royal ancestry.  In my case, this person is also one of my “immigrant” ancestors. Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr, for whom Delaware is named, is in theory, my 10th great-grandfather.  This “link” is based on distant DNA matches to the West family and inferences…


MyHeritage Deep Nostalgia™ Photo Animator

Dad, Cricket, and Me
March 9, 2021

So, this weekend, I discovered’s Deep Nostalgia™ photo animator.  (There went many, many hours playing with that tool.)  It’s fantastic and creepy all at once. I took some old photos of my dad and animated them out of curiosity.  It cleaned them up really nicely – sharpening the focus and making colors more clean/vivid – then made his face come alive.  Certain angles were a bit off, but the…
