Social Saturdays: An Attempt to Connect

-Damien

Well we here at The Shadow’s Lair have been BUUUUUUSY. No YouTube videos in ages from us (I apologize)  and sporadic blog postings. I have so many over due restaurant reviews I need to post too.

Anyway today is Social Saturday. Every Saturday I try to answer questions asked by followers. I didn’t get any yet but the door is still open.

We are still moving into our new house. Process is slow moving. Kids still enjoying attending college classes with me. The only thing is transportation to and from school has been Uber and that gets expensive.

If you all like The Shade of Writing please go to our Patreon and support us. Even a dollar helps and will get you listed as a supporter on our Follow Fridays.

Thanks.

Social Saturday: Hurricane Irma

Damien

Normally I would have asked you all to leave questions in the comments last night. I got home late though and that didn’t happen. Leave questions for me in the comments of this post and I will answer tonight.

Now that that is out of the way, lets talk about Hurricane Irma. If you are in it’s path I am pleading you evacuate. This is a storm like we haven’t seen in 80 years.

The satellite images show that this storm is no joke. The size alone swallowed the islands it hit. Don’t think you will survive. GET OUT. After all Irma isn’t alone.

The Caribbean is preparing for Jose and at this point they don’t have much left. If it were me I wouldn’t be taking chances when two hurricanes are following one after the other.

After all this is the damage Irma did to St. Martin:

Irma is suppose to now be heading toward Tampa. I am begging my family, friends and strangers. Just leave. Please, take your elderly. Yesterday it was the Bahamas, the storm is coming don’t wait.

Social Saturday: DNA TESTS

@l_lengyel Asks: I am thinking about trying 23 and me DNA ancestry? Have you thought about it? Just asking.

Damien Says:

While I have considered using Ancestry.com DNA test initially after some research I learned there are plenty of options depending on the DNA test you need.

Maury uses DNA Truth, which is also an ancestry DNA company.

If you are wanting to know what will work for you there is a good  blog post here : Which DNA Test Should I Take?

As for me I will probably take one this year and I will either use 23 and me or Ancestry.com
