Re: toes info

Hi Laurel,

I'm disappointed too. I know Milamba has Celtic toes, I have, my Dad did , 
and I think at least four of my grandchildren do too.  The other genetic 
quirk that we have is the ability to roll our tongues  up at the sides so 
that they form a U shape. This is also only able to be done by genetic 
inheritance so I wonder how many on the list are game to go look in a 
mirror and see if they can do that one. I'd love to see that being reported 
to the list.
