I am a bit older

Life is still good as a spoiled CAT.
I was reading my last blog and felt upset. The poor little cat next door – name Cat died December 2015.
I am not surprised as she was always outdoors and that they say makes your life very short. I am now 16 years a bit overweight but otherwise healthy.
Looking at what to do these days – I think I will follow the humans and start writing my life story. What do you think? PussyCat Tails?? Oh no –
not after Trump and what they tweet about P***y
Must stop taking politics now as it is a mess in the USA. Canada has a pretty boy who is getting on my nerves. I sleep when the news is on these days.
Well I am off to bed now in the middle of the day – the news is on

Myanmar / Burma and the Anglo Burmese – who are they?

The year went fast and tweets filled my life. 140 words. Now that I am back researching and working on data  – I feel alive.

Asking all individuals from Burma / Myanmar who are Anglo-Burmans to fill out this survey.

The term Anglo-Burmese refers to Eurasians of European and indigenous peoples of Burma from 1826. This group can be viewed as a distinct community. After 1937, included Anglo-Indian residents in Burma whose children were born in Burma.
The European element included, aside from the English, other European influence, chiefly Greeks, the Dutch, Scandinavians, Irish (who left their country due to the Great Famine), Germans, Austrians, the French, the Portuguese, Italians, and Russians. Armenians, Syrian, Egyptian,s and the Anglo-Indian were also represented among Anglo-Burmans as well as a mix of Baghdadi Jews.
