    The family name was originally "d'Isigny". They came to England from Normandy in 1066 with William the Conqueror. When William ascended the English thrown, he encouraged them and the others to settle in the conquered territories.
    They got into a bit of trouble supporting the Duke of Monmouth's rebellion against King James II. The heads of the family were ordered arrested and incarcerated in the Tower of London, but managed to escape to the safety of Ireland.

    I think it does.. At the moment on telly over here the Irish kind of beauty pagent the Rose of Tralee is on and girls from all over the world enter it and they have to have an Irish connection to enter so alot of them are like my great great great great great granny's auntie's cousin was from Dublin or some such stuff lol! So I'm sure a great auntie married into family counts as well!!

    haven't started losing sleep yet... starting to watch disney dvd's though lol! Was going to do one every day from 16 days left on but then I was bored last night while trying to fix ipod so I put a disney xmas dvd on that I got last year and hadn't watched yet... it was cute lol! Didn't have time for one today though cos I was working... Will watch two tomorrow to make up for it

    oh and 20 days left and since i've no flashbacks left i thought i'd stick up my semi schedule! I say semi schedule cos most days are not really stuck only two adr's and then the halloween party so if we decide to change other days we can anyways:

    Day 1 is flying!
    2: Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure... HARRY POTTER!!! Prob do IOA second cos I heard it's easier to get into HP part after 3!
    3: Florida Mall and MNSSHP
    4: Shopping centre day
    5: Seaworld
    6: Animal Kingdom... and maybe Epcot. AK is open til 5 and we have hopper option so we'll see how we feel and if we're not tired we might go over to Epcot for a while cos it's open til 9 but our main focus is AK cos we've never really explored it properly!
    7: Shopping centre/rest day... shopping can be restful right?!!
    8: Hollywood studios and I have a lunch ADR in Sci fi that day thanks to Chrissy helping to organise that Arthur's Day!
    9: Magic Kingdom.. I'm divided on this cos I've never seen park opening ceremony which I would like to see but then I want to see wishes which won't be on til 9 that night and I know if we arrive at 9am we probably won't last til 9 that night in the park so don't know which to do yet! We'll see how we go when we get there I guess!
    10: Last Florida day.. Have CB booked at O'hana and plan to explore downtown disney unless other trip goer doesn't want to go back to something else!
    11: Fly to New York then possibly go to waxworks and/or worlds biggest build a bear shop... trip mascot is a used to be white build a bear so slight fan!
    12: Sight seeing day
    13: Sight seeing again... apparently ticket you get for loop buses lasts for two days hence second sight seeing.. Wicked on broadway that night
    14: Shopping!! Lion King on broadway that night
    15: fly home boo

    All that equals epic trip I won't want to go home after... except I'll miss my boys (doggies) it's first time I've left the pup for that long.
