'Elvis roots 'lead to Scotland'...'

'Elvis Presley's roots can be traced back to a village in Aberdeenshire, according to a Scottish author. Allan Morrison, from Greenock, said he had discovered that the musical icon's ancestors lived in Lonmay in the 1700s. Scotland was also the location for The King's only visit to the UK, a brief landing at Prestwick Airport in 1960.

Mr Morrison said the first Presley in America was a man called Andrew Presley who arrived in North Carolina in 1745. The 61-year-old said records showed that his father, also Andrew, married Elspeth Leg in Lonmay in 1713. The Presley roots in America could be traced right up to 1933, when Elvis's parents married. The singer was born two years later.

Most of the Presleys living in Scotland during the 18th and 19th centuries were found in Aberdeenshire. They were based in Lonmay and the nearby villages of New Deer, Old Deer and Tarves. Morrison's book, The Presley Prophecy, covers the adventures of Andrew Presley during the Jacobite rebellion.

These roots were cemented this week by a visit to Edinburgh by Lisa Marie, Elvis's 39-year old daughter. Interestingly, all three of the Presley women: Priscilla, Lisa Marie and 18 year old Riley, flew into Britain for the Led Zeppelin reunion concert in Greenwich.'

WOW, All the Presley women at a Zeppelin concert?...A wet dream come true except, oh yeah, I wasn't there...

I am quite a fan of Lisa-Marie, I must admit.

Young Riley, apparently, is good friends with Prince Eugenie (or possibly Beatrice) of the British 'royal' (Annunaki) family.

Hiya Ben,

Prestwick airport is the one the CIA use(d) when taking terror suspects to overseas destinations for torture.

I wrote this into your EP post, but I don't think my comment got to you.
On the subject of "the chosen ones", you know that Holly Branson (Richards daughter) jumps about with future world king William.

On another note, totally irrelevant, cameras are to be banned from Rosslyn chapel from 2nd Jan - health and safety issues. I read the link to the post about the music concert, most enlightening.
More crooked Mitchell brothers it seems. Wonder if they are on the proverbial square too. The house they live at is a wealthy address.

Take care ,have a good Christmas and that - watch and not choke when the Queen announces she is leaving.

cheers

Yes, I had heard that about Rosslyn. Matthew Delooze posted something about it on his site. Definitely interesting... It's been attributed to health and safety concerns (they don't want people tripping over when pointing their cameras at the roof, or something) but I see it as part of an ongoing agenda of suppression.

Happy Christmas to you Brian, thanks for your support. And, by the way, do you know something the rest of us don't re: Her Majesty's Christmas speech? ;)

Taking an educated guess Ben.

Fiona Bruce (Queen of the News) moving to the Antiques Roadshow.

Queen moves up to antique - or gives notice to do so. Plus the birth of a "new continent" in Lisbon week past.

cheers

I shall await the Queen's Peach with baited breath

BTB said...

I think I'm right in saying that it's pre-recorded; so any suggestion of abdication would probably have leaked to the press.

Still, I could be wrong... We'll find out in about forty eight hours.

The ports possibly singled out by the Phoenicians include Tyre, Malta, Venice, Carthage and Lisbon- after that the Lizard in the Horn of Wales, Cornwall

BTB said...

You've lost me there, sir.

Care to elaborate, please? :)




ATB,
Ben

hey mister b - i'm a long term reader, first time poster.

check this out, bono-bush + elvis-nix0n nastyness:

Ohmygod i'm totally into this Nix0n-Elvis stuff:

When Elvis met Nix0n, he asked to be made a "federal agent at large", so he could finish his "in-depth study of drug abuse and communist brainwashing techniques" that he was totally, like, in the middle of.

also, i heard your interview on red ice creations and, you know, right, yowza.

The Old Phoenician Maritime World-Strategic Ports line up. Considering their possible strategy of tying up all the Meditteranean nations by taking specific ports I feel Lisbon as part of this ongoing World Maritime [ now obviously space-oriented] Control Empire.
As they moved around the world with their far -advanced Naval tech, they took the ports, sat outside and controlled the Greeks, Romans, Portuguese, Carthaginians, Spanish, British, US and USSR Empires. Now they have satellites so Earthy ports remain now useful as Historical sites to fill with misleading events.
One of those subjects that needs to be spoken about due to all the lead-offs.
Check the map of the British Empire at its height, almost the last Empire the Phoenicians needed to get a Global Empire.
They do much the same inside our minds, setting up strategic 'ports' .
Enjoy the season
