1. Your mother's cousin is your second cousin.

2. Nobody said Mormons are stupid. Indeed the Mormons are effectively serving a market that didn't even much exist 30 years ago. People were interested in their past and some would pay for perfunctory "ancestry" info. But the advent of Ancestry.com and the marketing around it (tv programs about celebrities ancestry for example).

3. As to whether it is stupid to use Ancestry.com, well. I guess if you don't believe in Baptism and Jesus Christ, then, sure go ahead. Your great great great grandfather won't care that he got baptized into a different church.

4. I read the article. I came to less optimistic conclusions than you apparently did.

My Father studied Business at Pepperdine in Malibu, California, for a short time, but he never earned a degree, and on Sunday he watched football and drank beer, but my Mother made sure that we attended church every Sunday. My Father died on September 14th, 1977, I was nine, almost ten.

One memory that I remember about my Father, was one time when we went out on our vast property in Oregon (actually it was only about ten acres, but it was big for a kid), and we were laying out under the stars one night, just he and I, and we were looking up at the stars, and he pointed out Orion, and he told me that Orion was the gateway to Heaven. He was into the stars and he studied the constellations and stuff. It was really cool to lay out under the stars with him while he told me stories about all of the constellations and stuff.

He was struck by lightening and was killed instantly one day while working.

Salute,

Tony V.

Some people from my family tree from Oregon are mentioned in this book...

"Rankin Crow and the Oregon Country"

http://www.worldcat.org/title/rankin-crow-and-the-oregon-country/oclc/144257

I have an autographed copy of the book.

When I managed a dog Kennel, it was "The Canine Country Club, Inc, which was a subsidiary of A, B, and Y, Industries," and he saved a lot on taxes.

And I think guys like Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp have their own LLCs.

The AADA West has cool new student housing. I was going to get rich and donate student housing so that future students would have it better, but it is a good thing that they did not wait for me, ha ha ha, and it is awesome that the Academy has cool new student housing.

The AADA is the best acting school in the world, it was a privilege to attend.

Anaheim needs a movie studio, even just a small studio like Occidental in East Hollywood, just to get started...

Link...

http://occidentalentertainment.com/

There is land for a studio here in my neighborhood, the only bad thing is that there are train tracks close by.

I tried to open a small studio on Julianna Street, here in my neighborhood, I tried to get the San Manuel Indian Tribe to finance me, but it did not work out.

Salute,

Here is the Wikipedia page for District 1 in Los Angeles....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_Angeles_City_Council_District_1

And...

One time when I was living in my pickup truck in Los Angeles, I found an apartment for rent in Boyle Heights, I was thinking that it was Echo Park, but I think it was Boyle Heights, and the rent for the apartment was only like three hundred dollars per month, it was really cheap, and the apartment had a great view of downtown Los Angeles. I showed the apartment to my Mother, and she said, "No." She did not want me to live there. She did not approve. But now, later on, she loves where I am now in Anaheim. She loves Anaheim.

Here is the Wikipedia page for Boyle Heights...

The Super Star with Cheese is a favorite of mine.
 
And I look forward to trying the Baby Back Ribs 1/2 pound Thick Burger.
 
The Teriyaki 1/2 pound Thick Burger is good too.

Italy is giving away dozens of historic buildings for free (with just one catch)

Link...

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/italy/articles/free-historic-buildings-italy-tourism-scheme/

There was a castle for sale in Tuscany with a vineyard and winery, for thirteen million dollars, it was producing Chianti wine, and I wanted to buy it, but I could not make it work. I wanted to add a recording studio at the castle too, so friends could make albums there. I also planned to make and sell wine coolers too, like Bartles and Jaymes. And then I wanted to use the money from the sale of wine and wine coolers to make movies at Cinecitta in Rome, Cinecitta is the largest movie studio in Europe, and of course Italy is full of great places to shoot.

This new program looks interesting, I need to learn more about the program.

Salute,

Tony V.

On the issue of Quartz Hill, California...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quartz_Hill,_California

Evel Knievel did jail time at Mira Loma. There has always been an institution there. I do not approve of there being a prison in Quartz Hill, I wish they would have stopped that from happening.

But meanwhile, Quartz Hill can have nicer homes, on larger lots, and they can improve the situation pertaining to runways and stuff for private planes and for helicopters. Quartz Hill can also be zoned for horse property.

Quartz Hill needs to incorporate, and Quartz Hill needs a Mayor, and a City Council, to stop things like the prison being built there from happening. The people of Quartz Hill need to organize if they wish to save Quartz Hill, they need to organize and have some say of how future development will happen.

I think the areas where the most Joshua Trees are need to be preservations. The Antelope Valley needs to preserve certain areas. And people can ride horses in the preserves, and they can hike and ride bicycles, etc.

It is like in New York City, they were smart enough to save Central Park for the people.

The Antelope Valley needs to preserve the most pristine areas for the future generations to enjoy. Once it is developed then it is developed. Some natural desert land must be preserved.

Also, someone needs to put a night club on the top of Quartz Hill Mountain. I heard that someone was going to open a club there, but it never happened. Someone needs to put a club there.

Good things can happen in Quartz Hill, but people need to unite to save Quartz Hill.

Salute,

Tony V.

The property which I was interested in was the Fattoria Chianti Classico, in Tuscany.

If you have any business ideas, you can take your ideas to the San Manuel Indian Tribal Business Council and they might help you to make your ideas happen.
