FROM THE HILLS OF KENTUCKY TO THE GULF OF MEXICO chronicles my life in the 21st century. Along the way I find new adventures and many “poopy pants” moments. Now, I have moved from a laid back Kentucky to a fast & furious Florida. Life is different here, dealing with snowbirds, immigrants, and other cultures; living an apartment life and trying to get along with new neighbors; and appreciating the Filipino culture. It has excerpts from my life as an internet warrior in the “land of Blog.” Also, it includes stories of my renewal of love for my dog, Rocky. Those stories include how he survived from a trip from heaven to hell and back. In twenty years of research, I have discovered many famous people in my family tree. The entire list, including every detailed link is also included in this volume. Who actually made the list may surprise you, as well. Here are just a few: Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and John F. Kennedy, Robert E. Lee, several kings, a Cherokee emperor, and a French Parliament president. There were several poets, including Edgar Allen Poe. There were famous women, like the Judds, Miley Cyrus, Pocahontas and Marilyn Monroe, among others. My latest “find” was Muhammad Ali. Examples of stories found here are: BETTER DUCK DONALD, IT’S GOING TO GET DAFFY AROUND HERE KNOW YOUR ROOTS AND THEIR SECRETS KEEP YOUR ENEMIES CLOSE & YOUR BEST FRIEND MUCH CLOSER MY WIFE IS SO GREAT SHE MAKES ME LOOK BAD KNIGHT OF TRUTH: INTERNET WARRIOR IN THE LAND OF BLOG IT’S A ROCKY ROAD FROM HEAVEN TO HELL & BACK QUADRUPLE, TRIPLE, & TWO DOUBLE HOMICIDES NEARBY THE OLD LADY WHO WAS PUT IN A TIMEOUT MOM!

I graduated in 1966 with honors from Ashland, Kentucky’s Blazer High School. I received an Associate Degree in English from the University of Kentucky; a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Science from Marshall University; a Master’s Degree in History from Morehead State University; and a Degree of the First Rank in Education from Morehead State University. I was a public school teacher for 27 years, and a substitute teacher for 13 years after that. I was a homebound teacher for one year. I taught courses in all grades from grade 7 through grade 12. Subjects taught: World History, World Geography, Kentucky History, Kentucky Geography, United States History, Ancient Civilizations, Transportation, Communications, Economics, Political Science, Etymology, and Chess. I also owned several businesses, over a 45 year period. The students that I regularly taught just called me “Mr. Miller.” The students that I subbed for, over a twelve year period, called me “Mafia Miller.” I found some of my relatives were from the Isle of Jersey and some were from Italy, and others were from Sicily, a mafia group from Ireland. Those reasons are why my pen name is “Mafia Miller.” I would like to acknowledge my appreciation to my wife, Seb, for her undying love and support. And, also to my daughter, Kim and my son, Jason for their everlasting love as well.
