What did the Tequesta eat?

Standard

Smoke in the Wind

 

yay! today there’s a vegan potluck in one of my favorite places on earth, Topeekeegee Yugnee T.Y. Park, land sacred to the Tequesta Indians who lived in the South East corner Florida in what is now Broward, Miami Dade and Florida Keys areas.

 

TEQ

 

Not big on their veggies. The Tequestas were hunter/ gatherers and did not farm crops like other tribes. They ate roots and wild fruit, palmetto berries, coco plums, sea grapes, and palm nuts. They made flat bread from ground coontie. They made a coffee like drink from the from roasted and ground leaves and roots of the Ilex Vomitoria plant.

They hunted bear, deer, wild boars, and other small dog like mammals. ( see photo ) They fished and ate frogs, turtles, iguanas, snakes, alligators, lobsters, sharks, you name it. Only the Big Chief got to eat the roasted manatee.

While there’s the Hollywood Seminole Hard Rock up the street, a Miccosukee Bingo Buffet around the corner. Their ancestors were chased into Everglades by Andrew Jackson from parts north. The Tequesta Indians were the tribe that was native to this land from the beginning of time. Sadly they were decimated by the Spanish by violence and by disease. Some escaped to what is now Weston and survived another 100 years or so. I find these parks and they tell the tale.

Jerry Garcia died for your sins…

Standard

Jerry Garcia died today Aug. 9th, in 1995, not just Deadheads but the whole world mourned. Now the days between his birthday Aug. 1st and the 9th, the date of his death are celebrated as ” the Days Between, ” after a Grateful Dead song of the same name. I prefer ” Jerry Days ” as in ” Jerry days are here again,” sort of high holy days for Deadheads.

I’m not saying they didn’t play a large role in his death ( or his life for that matter ) but drugs didn’t kill him. Stopping doing drugs killed him. Jerry was the hardest working man in show business, ( and you thought it was James Brown ) routinely playing 100, 200 gigs a year. He said doing dope made it like a “working vacation. ” But drugs didn’t kill him. His heart went out going through withdrawal. So kids if you’re not doing drugs, don’t start and if you are…don’t stop! WWJD? lol enjoy the holiday…

The Great Commission

Standard

Jesus

so dig like they’ve been hanging around this cat for like three years, and he’s been blowing their minds, turning water into wine and all kinds of freaky stuff but now like he’s pissed off the big wigs at the temple and he knows his days are numbered so he’s telling Matthew and his followers…

 

Jesus-and-Earth

 

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you and remember I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:20

and Matthew’s like what?…

“We who have scarce conquered our own misgivings?—We, fishermen of Galilee? with no letters, no means, no influence over the humblest creature, conquer the world for thee, Lord? Nay, Lord, do not mock us.”

and Jesus is like “I mock you not… “

“All power in heaven and all power in earth is given unto Me.”

“Go ye therefore.”

“And lo! I am with you all the days”

“even to the end of the world”

“Amen”

They could hardly fathom what he was saying ( I can relate ) but he knew that one day the whole world would hear his words and recognize his truth…

p.s. his followers remembered all his stories and one of the ones they liked the best was…

In Like Flynn

Standard

Flynn

In like Flynn” is a slang phrase meaning “having quickly or easily achieved a goal or gained access as desired”. In addition to its general use, the phrase is sometimes used to describe success in sexual seduction, and its folk etymology often asserts the phrase has sexual origins.  – Wikipedia

…Wikipedia you kill me, lol, of course none of that makes any sense whatsoever if you’ve never hear of the ” Silver Screen’s foremost Swashbuckler “???

ERROL FLYNN!

What you’ve never heard of Captain Blood!? or Robin Hood and his Maid Marian? I know you think the classics are Joanie loves Chaci but back in the glory days of Hollywood, Errol Flynn was the man. No one more epitomized the dashing, romantic than Flynn.

As soon as he arrived in Hollywood, Flynn and became a huge star, his reputation as an irrepressible drinker, carouser, and womanizer grew. His exploits were legendary and in 1942 he was charged with the statutory rape of two teenaged girls, but he was acquitted as a result of the flamboyant legal maneuvers of his attorneys. Nevertheless, his image was severely tarnished. Inevitably, his self-indulgence caught up with him. In his later Hollywood films he appeared haggard, distracted, and far older than his years. He also lost a great deal of money in a variety of ill-advised business ventures. Returning to America in 1956, he enjoyed a brief resurgence of movie popularity with his brilliant performances in The Sun Also Rises (1957), The Roots of Heaven (1958), and Too Much, Too Soon (1958). In these films he played a wasted self-destructive drunkard, and some critics suggested that he was not acting. He also hosted an Anglo-American television anthology, The Errol Flynn Theater (1956–57), the nature of which allowed him to display a hitherto untapped versatility. He wrote a remarkably candid (if often wildly inaccurate) autobiography, My Wicked, Wicked Ways (1959), and made a paean to Fidel Castro, Cuban Rebel Girls (1959), which was his last movie. In poor health after years of hard living, Flynn died at the age of 50.

“Extraverted intuition is the type of intuition that introspects in an extraverted and thus, objective manner—thus, the extraverted intuitive type is the ‘brainstormer’, one who introspects many possibilities. Because of this, the extraverted intuitive might be perceived by others as having flighty judgement or a lack of decisiveness but it’s more the result of seeing all the possibilities. Unlike its extraverted irrational counterpart, extraverted sensation, extraverted intuition looks for not what is but what may be.” Jungian theories of cognitive function
