I Just Love Mixed Jeans.

 

On my father’s side, my grandmother is European Chezk republic or someplace and my grandfather is Maori, the wonders of the age of globalisation! On my mothers side, my grandmother is of English stock that sailed here in the 1800’s and my grandfather is some other English stock mixed with German … I like the idea that my genes have been on  so many continents and are such an awkward mix… I have genetic tricks up my sleeve…my kids might have super powers… then again we're all tied together by the same ancestor a few thousand years ago, be it the 'adam' or the 'eve' of genetic history.

I think we could have a restaurant and name it the Melting Pot. Our menu would include Chineese Tacos, Mexican Springrolls and Italian Soul food for starters. <br />
<br />
Want to add to the menu?<br />

What we need is a great big melting pot, big enough to take the world for all it’s got; stir it for a hundred years or more...Turn out Coffee Coloured people! By the score!<br />

So says the lyrics of an 80's song.

Fine, diversity is not a good thing...just a thing. <br />
But Sicily is a cool place to have in your recent family. <br />
We're all special and unique :)

Diversity is a good thing :) I wish I knew more about my European ancestry.

So you have some Great international intelligence and quirks huh?<br />

Globalization was invented in the United States. LOL<br />

It is good to be a blend. I'm very white for someone with Maori blood, although I have the facial structure. What I do not like is the idea that there is a particular culture I have to adhere to. Luckily I've managed to stay away from learning dying languages, and I am better able to appreciate the traditions from a modern perspective. That’s the way I see it anyway, do you learn Spanish or Cuban culture?

Isn’t it wonderful what a blend there is… my mother was born here but her parents were from Cuba and Spain and my father, well I believe Irish and German, but I’m not totally sure. I must be the lightest, freckled Cuban in Florida however, being that I married a Cuban, my children are a lovely shade of bronze. LOL
