Wow this is so cool!! Thanks for sharing your family photos tex, I think all of our parents/guardians should be people we admire because they helped make us what we are today, like you said.

And I'm gonna try and wikipedia all the people I dont know about. I just think its so cool seeing who people admire, its like walking into a friends room for a first time.

And gilles, I'm surprised somebody else knows who Laird is!! A lot of people dont know who he is, or 'how badass he is' is what i should be saying. :hehe:
