It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Gorges 1

: Gorges of Litton, Gorges of Tamerton Foliot, Gorges of Wraxall
The first few generations for this family come solely from 'Pedigree of George and Gorges' may have come from Gaurges in the Cotentin, Normandy indicating Gorges as the earlier spelling of the name. 'Pedigree', which acknowledges some uncertainty on the first generations, favours spelling the family name as Georges for those early generations and George thereafter. The spelling change is only shown for the Georges of Baunton.
