    Interesting.

    Musk was born to a Canadian mother and South African father and raised in Pretoria, South Africa. He briefly attended the University of Pretoria before moving to Canada aged 17 to attend Queen's University. He transferred to the University of Pennsylvania two years later, where he received bachelor's degrees in economics and physics. He moved to California in 1995 to attend


    By your standard I suppose Sir Leonardo daVinci was also British.

    I see. So in that case Sir Isaac Newton was a Dane?

    As so many of us do. Mine is mixed with some Plains Cree, which possibly makes me Lithuanian.

    No, because I am not Lithuanian. I am, however, Plains Cree enough to have a Spirit Name if I want one. My two daughters are Flash in the Sky and Little Bear.

    What’s really interesting is that a Cree Spirit Woman dreamed those names without knowing that Dr Flash in the Sky was born in the middle of a violent thunderstorm.

    Cree for "Do you speak Cree."


    And mine was Cree for “What?”.

    Anyway, the story is quite interesting. Apparently, my maternal great, great grandfather travelled to the Americas from Scotland to fight in the “Civil” War. He fathered a girl child on a Cree woman and eventually took his daughter back to Scotland. She then travelled to Australia and married a Welshman. The rest, as they say, is history.

    Missed that! The syllabics was so short I mistook it for some prompt character.
