Arms, coated as they were.

Omnia fortunae comitto

“I commit all things to fortune”

Meaning, I believe, something on the order of: its time to toss the dice.

That’s from the first recorded coat of arms for my surname.

1231 (records in Ireland and Scotland first mention the clan/surname 0″McCracken” in the mid-to-late 900’s).

Apparently, we’ve been down since day one. (Looking around at any of my family reunions would show you that not much has changed.)

Proud of my ulster-Irish roots today.

Well I’m proud everyday but as I’m quite the amalgamate of ethnicities it’s nice to focus on one in particular for a bit. And if I had to break it down into percentages, I’m more Irish than anything else.
