Our Common History


Here is a link to the history of our common ancestor, Donal O'Sullivan (click the title) and a picture of the now razed castle. I thumbed down there from Cork City one winter. The story is a rollicking but tragic adventure. Terry O'Sullivan insisted I learn my family's history when I first went over. I just re-read it, and it pisses me off all over again. I asked myself what became of the proud, strong, but ill-fated folk who underwent that ordeal of constant combat and deprivation. The answer is that they are right now at your computer wearing your clothes (or shown below in a Superman suit). As Terry said, "Lest we forget to remember..." One year we should take Donal (Dan) Buckley up on his offer and have a family reunion back in the old country. Here is another link to get you ready for that:

Tori and Pepper

New Calender added to blog.flynntribe.com

To all please note that I have added a new calender item to the blog site. It is on the left hand column and shows in an agenda format. it is the same calender item that is found on the www.flynntribe.com homepage under the calendar link. If you have google calenders you can subscribe to the calendar directly so that it will show up on your own google calenders. If you would like the ability to edit the calendar you will need a google calendar account. You can send me an email and request administrative rights to the calendar. If you just want to add and event to the calendar send me an e-mail, or if you announce it publicly on the blog I'll try to be aware enough to add it to the calendar. Tori and Dara also have manager rights to the calendar, which means they can also add managers and editors.

Getting Good News for a Change

This morning, unlike most mornings, my daily 10-minute chat with my mom on my way to work brought good news .

First, my dad's brother--who hasn't been in contact with my dad since a few years before I was born--is finally stopping by Florida for a visit. He's ironically been in Thailand for the past 10 years, and now that the brothers are smoothing things over, I might actually get to meet one of my mysteriously absent uncles (there are two) when Mike and I visit his family. Not that we have actual plans, but I assume we'll get there eventually.

The other cool bit of news is the link above: a Duke University news article about a team of researchers and students who are taking a trip to Uganda on Aug. 9th to update all of the medical equipment at a neurosurgery hospital. My cousin--whom I've not seen or spoken to in 8 years--is one of the Scrub Techs going on the trip. Along with the link came contact info; so now I'm getting in touch with her, in hopes that she'll have a moment to respond before she leaves and in hopes of getting back in touch with her twin siblings as well.

Two family silences ending in one morning...It's such a wonderful feeling! I always hated that my uncles left my dad's life before I entered it, and I've never been able to understand quite why my cousins disliked me enough to avoid me for 8 years (my little sister's entire life, by the way...The last time they saw her, she was an infant being baptized). Now, all the drama might be over.

I know this has very little to do with The Flynn Tribe, but I felt the need to share. Besides, the trip to Uganda is awesome and it's nice to hear about people helping others.
