Is that Toby Jones? He was the dude with no dick in the film Your Highness with Danny McBride. Terrible film but funny too.

^ I just came in to post about Cobra Kai. And, yes, it's fantastic. There's enough there for the old fans, as well as younger generations.
At first it feels a little corny, but then it warms up. Well worth watching.

Been a couple of good episodes, last nights focus on Ancestry.com was very interesting and poignant for me at the moment.

Mrs Boon has been keen for me to look into my family tree on my fathers side. My paternal grand father stowed away from Wales when he was 14, was found on board the ship too late to head back to Cardiff and arrived ( eventually, after a long exercise ) in Adelaide. We know he had an older brother who went to Canada and worked for Ford Motor Co and at least one younger sister.

Subsequently my father and my brother are the only full blooded *insert surname here* that I am related to in Australia, we think.

You might need to sign up and/or do the swab testing kit.

Might try and catch up with that episode.

Ive got a family tree that dates back to around 1460. Id like to trace it back further.
I have a starting point and the current 1460 and there is a few missing years.

Ive probably got rellies who I have no idea of given spelling of my surname can contain 2 or 3 extra of same letter then it should .....

On Wil, anyone read the fuss made about his podcast where he bagged his own MMM brekky show?? :lol:

I watched about half an hour and turned it off. Could be interesting. I've read a few books about dodgy Wall St people, and SEC investigations, etc.

It didn't keep my attention.
