Bloody Mary whose name has been in the English language and cocktail lounge lexicon for centuries is richly deserving of her handle. She was born to Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon in 1516. A little background is called for here. Catherine was actually married to Henry VIIl's older brother Prince Arthur for a short time. After a few months of marriage Arthur died. Through the machinations of VIIl's father Henry VII, the VIII married Catherine• Henry ultimately divorced Catharine most probably because she was not able to produce a male heir that lived for an appreciable period of time. It wasn't for lack of trying because Catharine miscarried or lost a child four times prior to Mary's birth. After ridding himself of Catharine he also removed Mary from the line of succession and continued to have a contentious or no relationship with her for the rest of his life. Now Henry, the rogue that he was, married five more times to Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleaves, Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr in addition to his many dalliances with a lot of mistresses. Not only did he divorce his wives, sometimes he had them executed. Whoa, how about that for parental example? Henry of course had issues with the Roman Catholic Church though he still believed in some of the Catholic principles. His belief was a mixture of Catholicism and Protestantism with the bottom line being that he was the head of the Church in England. It was his last wife Catherine Parr that convinced Henry to readmit Mary (the Ist) and another daughter Elizabeth to the line of succession. Upon Henry's death, his only legitimate son Edward, whose mother was Jane Seymour (who was executed by VIII) ascended to the throne• He was nine• By fifteen he was gravely ill and feared that Mary (devoutly Catholic) who would succeed him, would undo the work that his father and he had done in establishing the Church of England. Well, Edward dies but not before naming Lady Jane Grey his successor, which went against the Succession Act of England• Thirty-seven year old Mary is pissed. She puts together an army, enlists the support of the Noble class and other supporters• She rides into London, takes names, kicksass, throws Lady Jane into the Tower of London and executes those that oppose her. She releases Catholics from prisons, appoints them to positions of power and re-establishes Catholicism as the official religion of England• Mary ascended the throne in 1553 and died in 1558 after only five years as Queen. As ruthless as her father, Mary spared nothing in attempting to re-establish Catholicism in England• She pursued "her" reign of terror with imprisonment and execution of opponents with her absolute fave method of execution, burning her victims at the stake• All told she burned about 300 "heretics" in her vain attempt to return England to the religion of Rome• Mary's short reign saw war, floods, famine, loss of trade and after her death a return of England to Protestantism• It's been about 460 years since she's been gone but you can now see why Mary still retains her well- earned handle, "Bloody Mary"• Next Mary up was also from the British Isles albeit over 300 years later. Mary Mallon was born in Northern Ireland in 1869. She immigrated to New York when she was about 15 years old• By 1900 her talents in the kitchen led to steady employment cooking in the homes of wealthy patrons. She began employment for a family in a community outside New York and within weeks, typhoid fever developed in the family. Mary left and returned to New York and went to work cooking for a family there• Within weeks the family and staff became ill and one of the servants died of•.•typhoid. Next up she worked for a lawyer and seven members of that family got typhoid. Ooops• Coincidence? Mary herself was not ill. Typhoid in the early years of the twentieth century was deadly• Today it is a disease that is prevalent in the developing world with over 21 million cases annually• The U•S. gets about 5,700 cases per year primarily from people that Wyatt is a 3 year old neutered brown and white tabby who weighs 111bs. He is a friendly fellow who has an affectionate personality and loves to be petted• Wyatt is gentle, relaxed and would probably do best in a quieter home without a lot of hustle and bustle• When he is comfortable around you he will let you hold him and will sit in your lap• Meet Wyatt by asking for ID#A1565844 Tag#C868.

The bacterium Typhoid Typhi is carried in the blood stream and the digestive tract and is often spread through feces of the infected person by not washing hands and infecting food and drink• There are vaccinations for Typhoid and treatment with antibiotics for the infected. Back to Mary. She took a job on Long Island and ten family members got typhoid. She kept changing jobs and people kept getting typhoid with some dying. It wasn't until one family hired a medical detective, George Soper thatprogress into the outbreak saw any results• In his investigations the one common element was a cook, heavy set, Irish woman, named Mary who left shortly after illness descended and left no forwarding address• Soper finally tracked her down and tried to get her to submit stool and urine samples. She adamantly refused, became violent and claimed she was not sick. It wasn't until Soper presented the findings of his report to the NYC Health Dept. thatMary was taken violently into custody. She was quarantined on North Brother Island where she was found to be rife with Typhoid, admitted that she rarely washed her hands when cooking, refused to have her gall bladder removed and refused to stop cooking. By this time Mary was found to be an asymptomatic carrier of the disease and dubbed Typhoid Mary by the press. After three years, with the change in leadership at N.Y. Health Dept. and Mary's affidavit that she would seek employment other than cooking and to abide by sanitary standards she was freed• First thing Mary did was change her name to Brown, and shortly thereafter went back to cooking with outbreaks following her wherever she went. After a serious outbreak at a hospital where she worked, she was finally tracked down arrested and returned to quarantine in 1915. In 1932 at age 63, she had a stroke and was paralyzed• In 1938 at the age of 69 she died of pneumonia after serving over 25 years in enforced quarantine. Was Mary an oppressed Irish immigrant as she claimed or did she knowingly, with malice, cause the death and destruction of the lives she touched? At any rate she has gone down as one of the evil Marys of history with a name that endures as one who is a transmitter of bad things. Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

A turkey dinner with all the sides is the bill of fare. Hope to see you there.
