The economy is killing us here at the Zilla house, but we're trying to keep our heads up. I've found what may be a promising freelance opportunity, I'll tell you more when I see how it pans out, and hubby is looking into  a business venture we can work on part-time together since he can't find a better job right now. In the mean time, if you'd like to help us keep the wolves from the door (it is sooo hard to buy enough food!), please consider hitting my tip jar, shopping at my store and/or buying some ad space. When I am on better footing, I'll be happily paying it forward to others who find themselves where I am now. Remember, half of all donations in my tip jar and 1/4 of the proceeds from ad sales will go to my friend Tlchimes who needs help getting a wheelchair and other medical supplies for her medically fragile but very special little boy

Although Tl and I are cash poor, read about what makes us rich in other ways at Stone Soup: I'm Rich And You Can Be TOO!!!!!!! by Tlchimes

Support Our Troops by sending them a care package.

*"Tgawdi ikla tiegħek!" is Maltese for "Enjoy your meal!" - A trip through the genealogy way-way-way back machine revealed that part of my family tree goes back to the very first noble family in Malta, the Gatt, or Gatto family, here an image of a Gatt family crest:
I'm mostly of Irish descent, but my Mom is from Grenada. I traced back her lineage and one branch took me from Grenada to Petite Martinique and Barbados to Scotland to Malta and the very first nobility there! Just one of the odd bits of trivia I stumble upon in my relentless pursuit of avoiding housework.

Do you remember the story of a man who "purchased / swindled" the indians out of Manhattan ? As the story goes, the indian involved in the swapmeet wasn`t the real owner ( plus, indians don`t "own" land in the first place), so swindling occurred on both ends ! Anyway, the buyer was my 5th great grandfather. He was quite a character, led a small mischievous band of merry men, got into trouble a few times. He was tarred and feathered twice and run out of town (not sure if a rail came into play) and ultimately killed by his own men !

Genealogy research is so fascinating, no? Ha ha ha !!

Side note : If anyone wants to hang me for saying "indian" instead of "native American" please know, the Cherokee girl I dated some years ago and her friends and family referred to themselves as "indians". If they can, so can I !

Great posts here, Zilla, I'm honored to be listed among them.  Thanks!  :D

quite_rightly said...

Ahhhh. A great list of fantastic reading. Thanks for the link, Zilla!

Smwbmpfjm said...

Thanks for some great summer Saturday reads; I'm very touched by your words.

Zilla of the Resistance said...

Cool story, SPG! I have a Cherokee friend who calls herself Indian (not the PC white man monicker 'native American') too.

Zilla of the Resistance said...

You're welcome, Fuzzy, you've got a great post! I had a lot of fun putting this one together, we have such talented colleagues!

Tammy Sandeen said...

Thank You so much for including me.... I am praying that your freelancing takes off as you hope... I know how it is. Hugs and love from us here in MI

Zilla of the Resistance said...

Thank you and you're welcome, QR!

Zilla of the Resistance said...

Zilla of the Resistance said...

Thanks, Donald! Breastaurants? LOL Oh my!

Aurelius said...

Santorum's a good guy-- don't think he'll get much traction, though

Zilla of the Resistance said...

I'm trying to chamge that. If people would stop ignoring him and learn what he's about, he'd do great. But even the right blogs barely mention him outside of Lisa Graas.
