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.


Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

Livingstone 1

: Livingston of Callendar, Livingston of Drumry, Livingston of Livingston, Livingston of Easter Wemyss
This family is believed to be of Saxon origin, the name being derived from Leofing son of Leof. One theory is that a Baron de Leving followed Edward Atheling into exile and then he, or his son, came to Scotland with Edward's daughter Margaret when she married King Malcolm Canmore. Normally identified as the first formally recorded ancestor of this family, and probably grandson of Baron de Leving, was ..
Leving / Livingus a 1124
1. Thurstanus a 1128
A. Alexander of Livingston a temp King David 1124-1153
There is some uncertainty on the next few generations. BE1883 shows Alexander as father of Sir William, father of 1 William ancestor of the Livingstons of Livingston, the last of whom died at Flodden leaving 3 daughters, 2 Sir Archibald father of Sir William of Gorgyn, and 3 Adam. TSP Linlithgow refers to errors by Douglas of the ancestry around this time. We follow TSP as supplemented by the Kilsyth web site referred to below as a Main Source but note that TSP is not certain on the descent from Alexander to the Andrew who married Elena.

TSP Teviot reports that the marriage was contracted but, through a cross-reference to a Wemyss family record, suggests that it may not have taken place. However, William's son is reported as inheriting lands of Easter Wemyss so it probably did.
