We have a few topics that are more or less verboten, like, one of our members
recently fell afoul of the law - that's off limits; we had a lengthy
discussion on the recent Ninth Circuit Federal Appeals Court and their
decision on two little words in the Pledge to the Flag, but that's been
pretty well run into the ground. A big "party" to celebrate the Fourth is
just about running down - we're in the cadenza phase of that one, but swiftly
in its wake is Bastille Day, to be celebrated on the Fourteenth.
You see, for some reason, this particular "forum" seems to have attracted a

If you have not yet become a member of the IBSSG, you will need to "dig up" a

order to "qualify." Failing in that, a member of royalty would do.
Beyond that, we often compare notes on ancestral stories or issues of
So, if you have anything to offer, as to Bastille Day, your own potential
IBSSG qualification, interesting ancestral stories, or research challenges,
you can probably get something going.
As for me, when something pops up that attracts my attention, I take a shot

get a discussion started. Try it.
