My family is related to the Adam's family-
NO, NOT THAT FAMILY-not Lurch, and the spooky kids! One of our founding fathers (and a founding mother)
My husband's surname is the same as one of Hitler's horrible SS guys that ran a concentration camp-I hope we are NOT related. We certainly do not share any of those views!

BTW-stop flaming the gal related to Benedict Arnold, history actually paints him in a better light than we learned in school. LOL

Billy Idol and Chuck Lidell?!?!?!? That fricken rocks!!!

A many times removed cousin of an NFL quarterback who will remain nameless as I think he's an a-whole. Why? At his grandma's funeral he was selling autographed hats of his team. Seriously.

My Uncle Bobby on my dad's side was Charlton Heston's stunt double. He is the guy that you see getting dragged behind the carriage at circus maximus in Ben Hur. It is very ironic though that they both died the same week. Guess they couldn't live without each other. Go figure. icon_confused.gif

No one famous here, but... we started out here in Aus, thanks to a peg legged convict who stole loaf of bread - apparently!

My mom told me that we're distantly related to Bobby Bare (country singer), and that my great grandmother once tried to adopt him when he was an infant.

Whether that's true or not, that's as close as I get.
