Oh my...

Off the 'invitation path' for a moment...

In my spare time (around 2 a.m.) I dabble in genealogy. I have actually been researching my family since I was 18 years old, for about twenty years now. Among my MOST RECENT findings...
I am related to the following famous people: (this is a partial list.)

Edward Hopper (July 22, 1882 – May 15, 1967) was an American painter and printmaker. His works represented light as it is reflected off of familiar objects. While most popularly known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist and printmaker in etching.

Norman Percevel Rockwell (February 3, 1894 – November 8, 1978) was a 20th century American painter and illustrator.

Edgar Allan Poe (January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849) was an American poet, short story writer, editor, literary critic, and one of the leaders of the American Romantic Movement.

Emily Dickinson (December 10, 1830 – May 15, 1886) was an American poet.
Edwin Powell Hubble (November 20, 1889 – September 28, 1953) was an American astronomer. He was born to an insurance executive in Marshfield, Missouri and moved to Wheaton, Illinois in 1898. (The famous hubble telescope is named after Edwin.)

Very interesting! What a wonderful find!
