    And that's cool to me.
    Three cheers for the American mutt! My ancestry is Irish, Scots-Irish, Scottish, Welsh, English, Dutch, German, French, Portuguese, Cherokee, and God knows what else. Anybody else?

    My heritage means a great deal to me. I am 99 and 44/100% pure Irish, and I have been to Ireland twice in my relatively short life. To fly in the face of my logical INTJness, I immediately and completely felt at home in Ireland on both of my visits. I instinctively grasped that this is where my family had come from, and I enjoyed my time there so much that I hope to return on a regular basis. If I had never traveled to Ireland, I'm certain that I would be answering this question differently, but I did. So I'm answering it like this.

    No bells and whistles for my heritage. As far as I know I'm just plain ol' American black. I would like to know where exactly in western Africa my ancestors originated and at some point in my life I plan on spending an extended amount of time in Africa, hopefully sooner than later.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    It's interesting, and vaguely a way I can identify myself, but not really important.

    I'm half Chinese, and half Canadian/European/whatever (quarter Irish and the rest some mix of British and Scottish)...

    I'm really patriotic though.

    My culture is a connection for me to an aincient tradition and also affects by spirituality deeply.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Re the OP: Not really. My maternal GF did the genealogy thing and traced the family back to Normandy circa 1644, but that's simply a curiosity AFAIAC.

    Really.

    Eh, mostly a mixture of Nordic/Germanic Europe (including the British isles) and a third generation Japanese Canadian for a grandfather. Any of you with Austins in your families, I might be related to you, I might not be.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    The biggest chunk is German (different sections of Germany), some Irish, French, English, Scottish, Austrian, and some unknowns. (Yes, mostly northwestern Europian, but the unknown ones may throw in some oddities.)

    My Dutch Irish great grandfather looked like Goldmember from the third Austin Powers movie... that's odd...
