See: DNA Does Not Lie with George Geder @ #DeColonizeTheMind You tested through AncestryDNA?? Then your ethnicity estimates are subject to change drastically, my ethnicity estimates changed from 86% Sub-Saharan African; 12% European; 2% South Central Asian and Native American, to 89% Sub-Saharan African; 12% European; and 1% Asian, only on AncestryDNA. My first highest percentage at first testing in 2014 on AncestryDNA was Ivory … Continue reading DNA Discussion with Decolonize the Mind
In the USA I’d mortgaged four homes over the course of my life as a single woman. They were older homes mostly, built-in or around the 1950s. It had always been my dream to have a brand new home. So when I saw the ad for my current residence of new homes being built in Oyarifa, I jumped on it. When I arrived on site … Continue reading The A’s have it
I haven’t been writing much about my experiences lately because right now I don’t have internet. I’ve moved!
If you read my post On a Different Level you’d know, that I’d been looking for a new home. I’ve found a house in the same town Oyarifa, as I was before but I’m now the owner of this one. The house is new and recently completed, it still had issues when I moved in though, that I’ll discuss later.
One thing about this new area is the internet is not the same. At the other home less than six kilometers away I had a modem through the local internet company here but that same company says I can’t utilize that modem in this area I’d have to switch to turbonet. However, turbonet is not in stock because of the high demand for it during the lockdown from parents with schoolage children who needed it to do their studies. So I will wait and text short cryptic messages on my cellphone as I am doing right now. A little humor there!

I wish love was a drugAnd you could ingest it,It would spread like a bug,And we’d all get arrested. Then all those folksWho has never felt it,Will contact it from smokes,After they’ve smelt it. There’d be no wars,And the Feds would never detect it,Too busy smuggling it to the shores,That they’d never suspect it. I wish love was a drug,Preventing symptoms doctors describe,There’d be so … Continue reading lOVe CoNtact HiGh

While I was away at the funeral for five days, in Kwahu, Ghana, Sankofa stayed in a kennel. When we returned home he seemed depressed, and for a few days I didn’t know what was wrong but he was eating fine at that time. Did he make friends with dogs at the kennel that he missed and wanted to go back to or what? Did … Continue reading To See Sankofa Smile Again
