    I was asking because my wife was born there, but her family moved to Germany when she was ten years old.

    My in-laws have been pressuring me to fly to Poland to visit their hometown.

    I'm a 34 year old Black Male-married-father of three.

    Okay --- I'll play. I'm a 49 (BION) y.o. white boy of English & Irish descent. Born in Syracuse, N.Y. My late father was an executive for the Chrysler Motor Corp., who was promoted and transferred several times during my childhood (we moved off and on from my ages 5 to 17).

    I was brought up and went to school in 5 major cities. It wasn't easy readjusting each time, but I survived. I believe it made me a stronger person, overall. I've been married for 14 years to a wonderful lady who has blessed us with two fantastic young boys, ages 10 & 5. I've been a Philly fan since 1976 when we moved there for my 9th grade year from St. Louis (Ballwin, Mo.) .... (My older brother played football, wrestling, and baseball at the same high school that Ryan Howard attended in the St. Louis burbs: Lafayette H.S.). I'm a graduate of Great Valley Sr. H.S. ('79) in Malvern, Pa. and West Chester (Pa.) University ('84).

    I'm praying that the economy shakes out of it's present doldrums and I can someday work, retire, and be laid to rest in the West Chester, Pa. era (The rest of my family lives in the Philly burbs). Most people say that I look like Michael Jack Schmidt, but then Chuck Norris when I rock the beard. (I wish I had their bucks). That should about do it.

    I've got some Irish and German in me also. Perhaps this is one of the reasons we get along together so well.

    Spiney -- You Da Dude!

    Anybody who would share his Wild Turkey with me is all right in my book -- and you don't even have to worry about bring a rotted, maggot-infested deer carcass to impress me!

    As for diversity factor, I'm 60, white, mom's parents were both from Russia, dad's clan possibly was Irish (that's a long story I'll relate at the Gate). Twice married, to a pair of saints who would put up with me -- the first for 26 years until she passed away and the second for 12 years and counting -- and I'm one of the few around here who can say he actually saw the Iggles win a World Championship.

    My brother Ivan was bayonetted to death by a Polish conscientious objector.

    So, which half is Polish? I would venture to guess that it's the half with the kielbasa...
