OK, common Cyburbians, time for you to get in line and bow to your noble Bear. For real. maybe...
Opened my e-mail this morning and I had another very-informative set of documents from a family member in Warsaw, Poland. Waldemar has been sending me information for a couple years, all related to his quite-detailed family tree search and documentation. I have been tearing through the attachments, with paternal glee (that side of the family). Some of the info.....
In the years 1685-1754 a pre-commie with the exact same name as this Bear wandered the Russian Federation countryside. He was listed in a detailed DNA report listing nobility of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Important to remember our eastern Europe history.....the borders of Russia, Poland, Lithuania (and others periodically) changed quite often. The attachments from my family member pal in Warsaw also included a herald. I am guessing, based on what I am trying to read (in Polish) that the herald was for multiple families, perhaps "The House Of Bear". I will get a pic of the herald posted.
Bottom line.....bow to me. RJ, you're doing it wrong.....bow toward me, not away from me. And put your swim suit back on.
Last night my high school went to its' first-ever Ohio High School Basketball Championship Game. My Panthers lost, 45-40. Finishing 2nd best in the state, not so bad. Congrats Whitmer Panthers!
NOTE: Toledo has not faired well over the years in high school finals. Toledo's Libbey High (now closed and demolished) lost in the final game in 1966 and again in (about) 2008. Toledo's St. Francis, Scott, and Macomber are the only teams to win the state basketball championship.
Bow to your Bear!
