Yesterday, I exchanged messages with a YOUNG man who is the grandson of Mikel Peters, the father I gave up my appartment for. The truth is, I was asked to move by Mikel’s good friend, Harry Basset. I did not have to move. Then Harry told me he just had a child, and the mother and child were homeless, too. They had moved from Florida all of a sudden. This YOUNG man gave me the names of the Mother and Son. I did consider the plight of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus. I did not have many belongings.
I took the dog to L.A. to visit my family. Walking on Venice Pier late at night, I beheld the beautiful woman God gave to me. We ended up in a tent in the backyard, with this beautiful family watching us sleep. Rena beheld Michael Paul, who is not the father of the young man who told me Janice went back to her family. I suspect Janice’s father wanted to hurt Mikel. They were on the run. Janice disappeared, and her parents raised the baby. That’s five homeless people. Rena lived with her grandmother in Grand Island Nebraska. I rescued her. She chose to spend the next fifty days, with me, camping in a tent.
“He never gave her last name or any identifying info.
I thought he had maybe made parts of it up, as I’ve never been able to find a “Janice” or a “Michael Paul”
Last night, my sister, Victoria Mary Presco, came to me in a dream. I awoke, in grief. She left me nothing. Her son asked me what I wanted. I told him I want my painting, Rosemary’s jewelry box, and…….THE TRUTH!
This morning, God said to me…….”Take something for yourself. I gave you a kingdom. It is yours to own!”
I raised myself up, and sat on the edge of my bed. “It’s true! Do I own the Republican Party – too!”
“Yes! It has been abandoned by Liars!”
I am a candidate for President. I am a Republican. Last week my cab driver told me he adopted a homeless man he calls “uncle”. He moved him into his house. I aske the drive to find out if his uncle knows Mr. H.
A year ago, I wrote a letter to Karl Schwarsenberg, informing him we are kin, a fact revealed to me when I took a DNA test. Karl did not write back. He opposes his sister’s desire to restore their kingdom, and get their castles back. I told him about the painting of the Habsburg family at the Gordon Schnitzer Museum. I had read his grandfather had restored the Habsburgs to the thrown, saving their monarchy, that Hitler put an end to. Empress Zita and her family found refuge in America. She held the title, Queen of Bohemia.
To find out the Wilson family may be kin to the Kings of Denmark and Norway who lived in Orkney, is to go back to the time I argued with the Sinclairs who appear at the end of Dan Brown’s ‘The Davinci Code’. We studied the book ‘Holy Blood, Holy Grail’. I found the lost Grand Master of the Knight Templars, and the Rougemont family who owned the Shroud of Turin. Last night, I was forced to admit, that my fictional character, Victoria Mary Bond, and Miriam Starfish Christling, are SEARCHING for me. They have something for me. They have………….THE TRUTH!
I left off having Victoria and Starfish looking for the lost library of Queen Victoria. Five days ago I beheld the Prague library.
“What kind of people would build such a magnificent and beautiful place?”
Behold……….The Red Hand! God bids me to own this kingdom so that I might taunt from a turret, The No.1 Enemy of My Nation……..Pretender Putin, the Peasant Liar of the World! You – are done!
Sometimes, life immitates art, and can come to the rescue, of…..art. Fictional Characters are the hidden souls, who come to fill in the armor of Lost Kingdoms. Then….there is the Stone in the Words, and the Words in a Stone, and a Tone in a Sword, and a Sword in a Stone!

A Genealogical History of The Earldom of Sutherland from the 17th century: “Sir Robert Gordon, in researching genealogies for his work interviewed many of the heads of families in Sutherland, among them Alexander Gun of Kilearnan and Navidale, 4th Mackeamish, who died in 1655. From him he learned that Mackeamish’s family are called Clan-Gun from one called Gun, whom they allege to have been the king of Denmarke his sone, and came many dayes agoe from Denmark, and settled himself in Catteynes. The significance of this statement is made clear when it is remembered that, in Sir Robert Gordon’s time, the kingdoms of Denmark and Norway were united under the Danish crown. However, the ancient Gaelic sennachies described the Gunns as Lochlainnach, or Norwegians, not Danes, because at the time of their forbear’s arrival in Orkney and Caithness Norway was a separate kingdom and not united with Denmark until the Union of Kalmar in 1391.
The Klementinum library, an exquisite example of Baroque architecture, was first opened in 1722 as part of the Jesuit university, and houses over 20,000 books. It was voted as one of the most beautiful and majestic libraries in the world by our readers!
The ceiling frescoes of this library in Prague were painted by Jan Hiebl. In 1781, director Karel Rafael Ungar established Biblioteca Nationalis, a collection of Czech language literature. Some of the rare historical books from this collection have been sent to Google for scanning and will eventually be available on Google Books.
Just as the Prague library is a rare and little-known treasure, so is it associated with several little-known facts: the Klementinum used to be the third largest Jesuit college in the world; recording of local weather began there in 1775 and had continued ever since; it is featured in a novel by famous Spanish-language writer Jorge Luis Borges.

|Death:||August 10, 1399 (75-83)
Lyme Hall,Disley,Cheshire,England (beheaded)
|Place of Burial:||Macclesfield, Cheshire, England, United Kingdom|
|Immediate Family:||Son of Robert Legh, of Adlington and Matilda (Maud) de Norley
Husband of Cicely Legh and Margaret Legh, of Clifton
Father of Jenkin Legh; Sir Piers Legh II, of Lyme Hall; John Leigh, of Ridge and Matilda Legh

The Leghs of Lyme were a gentry family seated at Lyme Park in Cheshire, England, from 1398 until 1946, when the stately home and its surrounding parkland were donated by the 3rd Lord Newton to The National Trust.
Since the Middle Ages various spellings of this ancient surname have been used : Legh, a Lee, Leghe, Leigh and Leyghe; there were also variations on Peter, eg. Piers and Peers, the family’s most oft-used given name. The first Sir Piers Legh, of Lyme, was knighted in 1397 and assumed as a coat of arms those of his mother, Matilda de Norley, in lieu of his ancient patrilineal Leigh arms.
For ease of distinguishing between the earlier generations, it became customary to append a Roman numeral to the various Leghs‘ names; in this case the numbering system is as used in The National Trust Handbook for Lyme Park.
List of the Leghs of Lyme
- Sir Piers Legh I (beheaded 1399) was the second son of Robert Legh of Adlington by his second wife, Matilda, daughter and heiress of Sir Thurstan de Norley of Norley in Lancashire.

Sir Thomas’s son (also Sir Thomas Danyers aka Daniell) died in 1353, a year before his father, so his young daughter, Margaret d’Anyers, became sole heiress of the Cheadle Hulme manor; as an orphan heiress she was married first to Sir John Radclyffe (who died without issue), then to Sir John Savage of Clifton with whom she had a son, John, and two daughters, Elizabeth and Blanche.
