The MacFarlanes


My family celebrated my son Enoch’s 5th birthday last night. To that end, we enjoyed having some guests over.

While our guests were over, we got into talking about genealogy, and that reminds me that I want to share with you some of the interesting things I have learned about my MacFarlane ancestors on my mother’s mother’s side of the family.

Also, last week, the U.S. Supreme Court turned down the election lawsuit by Texas and many other states. Why did they do it, and should they have done that? My perspective on this issue is partly informed by the things I have learned about the founding of this country by researching my family history.

In other news, I have some exciting updates to share regarding the plan for On The Rocks Blog Podcast moving forward. And similarly, I am considering going to a more modular design for this podcast in 2021.
