I'm watching a bunch of episodes of "Ancient Aliens" from the History channel about evidence that aliens visited us a long time ago and there are stories in the bible, the Bhagavad Gita and other ancient texts and art that shows aliens, up to and including ancient nuclear battles. So, It got me wondering how you hyenas think.

I got up to pee at 5:42am and I noticed that currently playing on the TV (I fell asleep with the History Channel playing in the background) was some show that was mentioning Thomas Cranmer and the Catholic Church and all of a sudden my ears perked up and I hit the "guide" button on my DirectTV console. It's a 2 hours documentary on the Protestant Reformation. Well, you know I'm just creaming my knickers with that, and on a lark I hit the "record" button and my DVR was able to "record" it back to it's beginning at 5am because it had already been on that channel! How awesome is that???

It's little shit like this that makes me a very happy woman. So now I'm awake and watching the show from the beginning.

I adore the series Big Love on HBO. It's well written, amazingly acted, and just perfect in almost every way.

Now I read Television Without Pity's board on the show, and someone offhandedly mentioned that Mitt Romney's father was born in Chihuahua, Mexico, which is the outpost for polygamists who have fled the country under persecution from the federal government of the US. So I did a little digging and found this article:


Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to smear Mitt Romney, as I really don't care all that much if his family was polygamist in the late 1800s-early 1900s or not; but the article is fascinating. The whole concept of Mormon polygamy is fascinating. I watched a documentary on PBS a couple of weeks ago on the Mormons and their history is so interesting.
